A pregnant mothers urgent plea, help Lubna Escape

Donation protected
Lubna and her husband Udai are living in conditions that no one should have to endure, especially not an expectant mother. By supporting this campaign, you can help Lubna and her family escape the dangers they face in Gaza, and give her unborn child a chance to grow up in a safe environment, where they can experience the joys of childhood and have the opportunity to build a brighter future.
"I am Lubna Abu Shar, living with my husband Udai Abu Shar in Deir al-Balah. I am 23 years old and currently pregnant. My deepest wish is to give birth to my son in a safe place outside Gaza before it's too late." - Lubna
Amidst the relentless conflict in Gaza, Lubna and Udai's home was destroyed by shelling, forcing them to seek shelter in a flimsy tent that barely protects them from the elements.

Now in her second trimester, Lubna is struggling without access to proper prenatal care.
"I am suffering from fatigue and a severe lack of vitamins due to the shortage of food and clean water, not to mention the severe depression I'm experiencing because of the constant anxiety and stress," she confides.

The tent they currently call home is "very cold in winter and will be hot and deadly in summer" – no expectant mother or newborn should have to face such dire conditions.
We are racing against time to raise $12,000 by July 1st to cover the costs for Lubna, Udai, and their unborn child to cross the border into Egypt – their only hope for escape, as Gaza lacks an airport. Every moment counts as we strive to ensure Lubna can safely travel before her baby's arrival.  

How Your Contribution Will Make a Difference:
-$10,000 ($5,000 each) for Lubna and Udai's permissions and passage to Egypt

- $2,000 for essential documents, initial accommodation, and critical medical care upon their arrival in Egypt

 But this is just the beginning of their journey.

"If I can, I wish to go to America or any safe place," Lubna shares, holding onto the dream of a brighter future for her child.

 Any additional funds raised will go directly towards helping Lubna's family reach a country where they can rebuild their lives, far from the constant threat of war and devastation.

Your donation, regardless of the amount, will have a profound impact on the course of Lubna's life and the future of her child.

 If a financial contribution is not possible at this time, please consider sharing this campaign far and wide.
Every single action brings us one step closer to making a difference.

The Power of Direct Aid:
When you contribute to this campaign, you can trust that your support will go directly to Lubna and her family, without any intermediaries or overhead costs.

This transparent, person-to-person approach ensures that your generosity will have an immediate, life-altering impact.

As a donor, you'll be kept informed of Lubna's journey and the incredible difference your contribution has made.

 From the depths of my heart, thank you for any support you can offer.

Your generosity means more than words can express.
