Moreover, 6 people who have suffered greatly during the war tell the stories of what they lost during the war and how they coped.
The UNRWA, the UN agency that provides relief for the Palestinians refugees, also launched a project where they feature the 50 brief personal stories, one for each day of the war.
The deaths of the 2200+ people in the last war are still fresh on their families' minds, who still struggle to cope with their loss.
The experiences of the last war as well as the two other wars in Gaza in the last 7 year have left deep, long term psychological scars on the population of Gaza, especially the children. PTSD has become very common: over 30 percent of children in Gaza show signs of severe PTSD, about 92 of children show signs of moderate to severe PTSD, and only one percent of children show no sign of PTSD. Bed wetting, frequent crying, depression, and anxiety are also still very common in Gaza. More detailed information can be found in this article and in this article.
This article published 6 months ago gives details about the resource blockade and the effects it has had. 6 months after the war, 100,000 people were still homeless, largely Israel restricts import of items that have dual purpose (ie military) including steel, concrete, cement, beams, plastic panels, and construction vehicles. This has lead to very little construction material entering Gaza and inadequate reconstruction. The lack of resources entering Gaza and subsequent homelessness has led to four infants dying from complications caused by the bitter cold in Gaza in January, and an increase in fire related deaths (ie lack of electric power).
The ongoing blockade not only blocks the importation of resources to repair factories destroyed by Israel in the war, but it also prevents surviving businesses from functioning and exporting properly. A personal narrative of the harm Israel's ongoing blockade has caused to Palestinian business over the years can be seen here.
For more information and reading on the blockade as well as some personal narratives, see here and here.
To help visualize the damage Gaza has faces and the lack of reconstruction, The Guardian has compiled pictures of some of the destruction in Gaza and Israel and compared them to what the areas look like one year later.

In the context of BDS and pro-Palestine activism, it has also been 10 years since the call for BDS, and we can see that the movement has made progress, but is needed more than ever.
