Israeli Robi Damelin and Palestinian Bushra Awad are joined together by past tragedy: they both lost a child as a result of the conflict.
The two mothers are now using their grief to build a bridge between Israelis and Palestinians as they embark on a quest for peace. Awad, a participant in ALLMEP member The Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF) and Damelin, a spokesperson for the PCFF, share their stories in a must-see interview with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of CBC Radio’s The Current at the Women in the World Canada Summit.
