GAZA, June 4 (Reuters) - Thirteen-year-old Palestinian Hadeel Madi has many dreams, she said, and worked hard at school so she could study abroad. But after eight months of war in Gaza it is basic challenges like finding water that occupy her mind.

She is one of many children who trek daily to collection points where water is poured into their plastic buckets, cans and bottles. They take it back over long distances, along dusty roads lined with mountains of rubble from destroyed buildings.
