A woman paints a puppet in Caracas, August 9, 2014, to be sent to children in Gaza. As violence rages on in the Gaza Strip, Venezuelan craftspeople gathered Saturday in Caracas to fashion hand-made toys for Gazan children. Dozens of adults and children participated in the toymaking, which was led by local artesans specialising in typical Venezuelan toys, including colourful spinning tops and cloth dolls. Venezuela has setup orphanages to shelter Palestinian children who have been injured or lost their parents in the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip, President Nicolas Maduro announced this week, according to official media.
