Urgent Appeal: Escaping Devastation

Donation protected
Dear GoFundMe Community,

My name is Eman Alhaj Ali, a resilient 22-year-old from Gaza. Amidst the ruins of six devastating wars, I stand with a bachelor's degree in English Literature and Translation, a testament to my unwavering dedication amidst adversity.

Yet, the current conflict has inflicted unparalleled devastation, shattering not just buildings, but dreams and aspirations. The university where I nurtured ambitions of pursuing postgraduate studies lies in ruins, a poignant symbol of the havoc wreaked upon our lives.

My family, comprising my parents and four young siblings, face a harrowing reality. Our cherished home, a sanctuary of joy, now lies destroyed, leaving us displaced and destitute. Humanitarian aid remains elusive to us, as we grapple with scarcity of food and soaring prices in a landscape of desolation.

In the midst of this chaos, my fervent desire to continue my education burns bright. However, the educational infrastructure in Gaza lies in ruins, rendering my pursuit of knowledge impossible here. Nowhere to live. Nowhere to study. Thus, I humbly seek your support for my family to escape Gaza and journey abroad, to find safety, complete my education, and start a new life with my parents and younger siblings.

Beyond my own aspirations, your generosity holds the power to alleviate the profound suffering endured by my family. With dwindling resources and mounting expenses, my father's meager salary barely sustains us for a fraction of the month. My siblings, innocent souls craving nourishment, are deprived of the basic sustenance essential for their growth and well-being.

As we endure the indignities of makeshift shelters, devoid of comfort and plagued by illness, your compassion offers a glimmer of hope amidst despair.

My family members:
Dad: Ashraf Alhaj Ali
Mom: Abeer
Siblings: Doaa (6), Abduallah (8), Yousef (11), and Ahmad (12)

Your contribution will help us all escape into Egypt, estimated to cost $5,000-7,000 per person, help me and my siblings continue our education, and my whole family to start a new life.

As money cannot be sent directly to Palestine, the funds will be received by a friend in the USA, who will then send us the money to our bank.

Thank you for your kindness and support,
