Video: Gaza sweet factory integrates deaf workers

This sweet factory in Gaza is run by workers who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The Hanan Sweet Factory produces Arab candies and desserts in Gaza City.

“At first I thought it would be difficult, I didn’t know how I would communicate with him,” Muhammad al-Ghazali, the owner of the factory, told The Electronic Intifada about hiring the first worker.

“But when he came to work I found he had high concentration and very good talent.”

“When I first came here, my job was to put nuts on sweets. But I learned and developed new skills and started making them from scratch,” says Mouin al-Siksik, a worker at the factory.
