Help Hadeel & her family relocate to safety

Donation protected
Hello, my name is Hadeel AL-Maqadma. My family and I are reaching out during incredibly challenging times from Gaza, where we've been enduring the hardships of war for the past six months. This conflict has left us without a home, displaced multiple times, and currently sharing a cramped space with three other families. Despite these circumstances, we are committed to rebuilding our lives and pursuing a brighter future.

What is left of our home.

Our Plight:
The escalation of aggression in Gaza has severely compromised the safety and dignity of its residents, particularly affecting women. This dire situation underscores the urgency for my family, especially for the safety of my sister (Amal) and our collective future, to find refuge. Our livelihood has been stripped away, halting my sister's university education and losing our most valuable tools for work and study - our laptops.

Our Dreams:
Despite the adversity, we haven't lost hope. I aspire to pursue a Master's degree in Computer Science, aiming to contribute positively to society and support my family. Amal dreams of continuing her Architectural Engineering studies, driven by her passion for design and innovation.

Hadeel and Amal.

Our Request for Support:
We appeal to your kindness and generosity for support. Your contributions will enable us to recover essential items like laptops and facilitate our safe departure from Gaza to pursue our educational aspirations. The financial challenge of leaving Gaza is significant, with each family member requiring $5000 to $6000 for safe passage, plus an additional $1500+ for initial settlement costs in Egypt, our first step towards a safer environment and a hopeful future.

How Your Support Helps:

Immediate Relief: Enables us to replace lost essentials and prepare for our journey.
Safe Passage: Assists in covering the costs associated with leaving Gaza.
Education and Future: Supports our pursuit of higher education, crucial for our long-term goals and societal contribution.

Our Commitment:
We promise transparency and regular updates on our journey and how your donations are being utilized. Every contribution, no matter its size, is a step towards a safer, more dignified life for us and a testament to the boundless compassion and support that humanity can offer.

Thank You:
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for considering our plea. Your support not only changes our lives but also renews our faith in humanity's kindness during these trying times. Together, we can rebuild, learn, and pave the way for a better tomorrow.

Maha, Ramadan, Hadeel and Amal
