Help a Gazan family get to safety

Donation protected
We are a Gazzan family trapped in the war-torn Gaza Strip, our house has been damaged and looted, which has not been fully paid for yet, we have evacuated two times already, and no one saw the second evacuation coming, this led us to believe that we are living in the unknown, as we don't know what's going to happen to us... What does the future have in store for us! It's a matter of life and death at this point.

Two of our cousin have died, most of our uncle's family has died, 21 individuals of our mother's relatives have died, and the list of our relatives dying goes on, witnessing our relatives getting killed like this is horrifying to say the least, every time we see a familiar name of someone dying in the news, we fall in deep despair, to the point that the news of our relatives dying has became a usual thing and has lost its impact on us, we have reached unprecedented levels of dullness.
Anyway, everyone in our family has a dream to fulfill, and has something he/she is passionate about:
Mohsen Abu Saqer, a 50-year-old father who suffers from a number of chronic diseases, wants to see his family members achieving their dreams peacefully, also, he wants to live in peace, as he has seen it all, the two intifadas, the Gulf wars, Gaza wars, etc...
Safinaz Al-Baghdadi, a 50-year-old mother, has the same dreams as our father, she is a UN employee, throughout 25 years, she has taught many students, she left her impact on a lot of them, as most of them are still in contact with her.
Yahia Abu Saqer, the older son, and a teaching assistant at the Islamic University of Gaza, and a student who is trying to obtain a master's degree in Data Science, unfortunately, the Islamic University of Gaza has been bombed and severely damaged, and his dream to become a data scientist has faded away.
Hala Abu Saqer, a 22-year-old Biotech specialist, her dream was to complete her studies abroad, but the ongoing war has made this impossible for her.
Ibrahim Abu Saqer, a 21-year-old college student, dreams of becoming a dentist, after 4 years of hard work, and high expenses, the war has made all of that go in vain, he is so depressed because of his lost effort.
Haia Abu Saqer, an 18-year-old high school graduate, won a scholarship in Turkey, as she dreams of becoming a psychiatrist, to cure the damaged souls of Gazans because of all of those wars and the 17 years of blockade, but with this war starting out of nowhere, she can't go out to Turkey.
Deema Abu Saqer, a 17-year-old high school student, her dreams are simple and innocent, as she wants to get a high average in her final year of high school, so she can celebrate her success with her family and relatives.

With all of that out of the way, the only solution to fulfill our halted dreams is to resume our lives in Egypt, but it costs 10000$ at least for anyone to cross the border from Gaza to Egypt, and a family with an average-to-low income like us can't afford paying the price for the 7 of us, also, the prices for everything have skyrocketed, so all that's left for us to do, is to extend our hands to all of you to help us getting out of Gaza, as the war has no signs of stopping.
By helping us, you have helped to achieve 7 dreams, you have contributed to giving us hope, and most importantly, you have contributed to saving a family from an unknown future.

Finally, the money will be spent to cover the fees of tickets from Gaza to Egypt, and the donation fees. After reaching the the aim of the donation, the money will be spent to the beneficiaries through a trusted money exchange company used by Gazzans.
