URGENTLY Help Lina and her family to evacuate from Gaza

Donation protected
With your generous support, I hopefully think that my family could leave Gaza ASAP.
I know you have encountered many campaigns that need donation to reach safety and I am sure that I never thought of doing this but I seek your humanity to move you toward donating and share the link with others!
The campaign moved slowly and I started to lose hope of being safe with my family.***



Who am I?



I'm Lina, hailing from Rafah, Gaza. It's surreal for me to be writing this or sharing this link today. I understand you might have encountered countless similar links before finding mine, but circumstances have compelled me to take this step out of a profound fear for our lives. While my family home is in Rafah and I have not had to experience true displacement, at the onset of the war, we had to seek refuge away from our home due to the relentless bombardments. I can't begin to explain how watching your life decay while you're alive is such a series of painful epiphanies. You do not get to mourn your life once, every day is welcomed by a new process of mourning. Initially, I grieved over my niece's shattered dreams of attending school, a routine that included picking up her lunchables in the morning. Subsequently, I mourned the complete destruction of my workplace. Halfway into the war, the profound sorrow extended to mourning the brutal loss of my dearest friend. Since then, I have been mourning friends and loved ones every day.


We have been deprived of essential means for a decent human existence. Despite my extensive experience working for organizations promoting women's empowerment and resilience, I now find myself unexpectedly in a vulnerable position, requiring assistance to support and safeguard the future of my family.


Immediate Risk - Rafah Situation:


The current situation in Rafah is a ticking time bomb. The city is incredibly overcrowded, to the point where a 5-minute walk can take 1-2 hours. There is ongoing speculation that Rafah is next in line for a ground invasion. After enduring 150 days of war, the prospect of going through this ordeal once again is beyond comprehension. It seems as though we are queued up, observing what fate has in store for us following the fate of our friends and loved ones in the North. Contemplating the prospect of my father, mother, and sister experiencing this is frightening, but it's even more distressing to imagine my brother's family and his two little daughters going through the same ordeal while only having lived this life for 5 years. We are all now living together and we are going through this collective fear together. While it is comforting to have my family in one place, I wish we would be in the same place safely together.


Why am I doing this campaign? and how the fund will be used?

Unfortunately, The cost of crossing the border at Rafah to Egypt is $8,000 per adult and $1,500 per child. For me and my family, we are 8 members. My mother and father are 58 years old, my brother is 32 and his wife is 30, years old, my sister is 24, and I am 30, and my two nieces one is two years old and one five years old.

6 adults 8000 dollars each
2 children 1500 dollar each
=51000 and there is GoFundMe fees and transfer fees. the rest will be used for the first weeks in arriving to Egypt.

Thank you so much for choosing to help.
warmly
Lina
