Help my family escape Sudan's war

Donation protected
Help me and my big family escape war in Sudan My family and I fled the little rental home we had (but a home nonetheless) in a desperate attempt to get away from the war, but the war is only expanding, and it's gotten worse financially to us to the point where we just might have to move back in the middle of bullets and missiles and threats of rape. I am Sajida, a -once- hopeful medical student, trying my best to navigate through living in this already unliveable country as the oldest daughter, with only my widowed mother in the picture an no job supporting us to begin with. My father died years ago and since them we've barely been passing by, with the hope of me graduating and then attempting to make a better life for us. But the war came, and even that dream is far fetched now. We've barely made it out safe, with nothing on us but two changes of clothes per person and the hope that we might go back to our home in less than a month. It's been 6 months now, our home has already been ransacked completely, they didn't even leave us a spoon behind. We've ran out of funds, plans, and hope. My mother has a week heart, heavy shoulders, and a desperation in her eyes to have us live good ever since she was left with 6 orphans to raise, and every year it got harder, her smiles grew dimmer and her laughs are nonexistent anymore. And just when she thought there was hope, with me in medical school and promising to make it out of here to help her raise the kids and promising to give her a better life, it was snatched away. We're a house full of women, children and sickly elderly, we have no one and none has got our back, so this is our desperate attempt, last resort and cry for help. We tried everything, my little brother already did labor work to help with money so we can find something to eat everyday till he fell sick, the younger ones followed on his steps and it worked for a few weeks but it isn't enough. I don't want my 12yo brothers to work just so we can barely live, I want them to actually live and merely survive. They deserve to go to school and play and act like the little kids they actually are, not the war escapees that this country has forced us to become. At this point, it's either we go back and try to survive and live through it, risking being shelled, being robbed of whatever we have left, with a house full of women and children we're risking being violated and attacked at our own home, we're risking the mental torture of deciding whether to hide the children from being dragged out and killed or hide the girls from being kidnapped and raped. It's either that, or I beg you, and I'm choosing to beg. I'm choosing to beg and grovel, I'm choosing to live, if I can even choose at this point. Please help us. Help us collect any amount that will help us escape this country, the costs of travel were already ridiculously expensive before the war and now it's even more impossible for one person, let alone a whole big family. We have no passports, no means of transportation to any border and -at this point- nothing under our name to even think of selling to help us leave. Please, I am desperate, I am begging, and I'm not ashamed. I need my mother to live a few good years, I need to pay her back for her sacrifices, I need to help her, I need my siblings to have a future, and I need my family to be safe. Please. I will provide proof if needed, pictures of my destroyed home or medical bills or the current living conditions living conditions.
