A Palestinian man works on bamboo furniture at his workshop in Gaza city on April 16, 2015. Bamboo is a product of southeast Asian countries and before the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip, Gaza traders used to bring it in to the coastal territory in adequate quantities to allow the industry to remain viable. The traditional industry fade away gradually due to economic instability in the region and the lack of training for the industry across the Gaza Strip. Photo by Ashraf Amra
