Eman's message to you:

My name is Eman Hammad, I am 19 years old, a budding artist from Palestine, born and raised in Gaza City. The specter of death haunts me now, and I am consumed by fear and panic that another end may end my dream before it begins.
I graduated from high school with a GPA of 97.5 and ranked twelfth in my country, But the war has disrupted my path to continue my university studies, I have been searching in fear since the beginning of the war for an opportunity to travel, my dream is to study architecture at the (Sinan Fine Arts University in Turkey), but financial constraints prevent me from traveling.
I lost everything I owned in the war. I have been displaced and suffered great psychological trauma, The scenes of killing I witnessed, and the sounds of shelling prevent me from sleeping, I don't want to die. I want to live, paint, and see other scenes besides massacres and killings that bring joy to my colors and make me feel safe. I feel tortured, as if I am in a burning furnace and cannot find a way out.
Please help me get out of Gaza to safety and fulfill my dream.

Eman's paintings: "Her memoirs during the war."

Eman's story with the war "Explanation of her condition":
I used to live in the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza before the October 7th war in a warm house with my small family. My dream and ambition were to study architecture and continue my journey in the world of art, but this war destroyed everything.
I am now displaced, and my dreams are buried under the rubble.
In the first week of the war, the bombing approached our house a lot, and the walls shook, the windows broke, and the smoke filled the place, we miraculously escaped the bombing, running to the street where I saw my worst memories. Our neighbors were a pile of bodies in the middle of the street, and everyone was screaming in panic.

Pictures of our properties that were destroyed in the war:

I fled to the south to the Deir al-Balah camp. My family scattered; some stayed in the north suffering from famine, and some in the south were scattered. Months of continuous escape from massacres from one place to another. Tears filled my days. There was no safe place, and the night became like a scary beast.
When I went south, I spent difficult days sleeping in corridors of a shelter school on the seats without any covers. I suffered fear, hunger, and cold. There was shelling near the school. I fled to a house in a neighboring area where I spent two months, but clashes occurred, and the tank was meters away from us, bullets around me piercing the windows and furniture. The house was burned the next day when the soldiers arrived. I spent days on the street not knowing where to go.
Now I am in a tent. There was shelling near our tent, and I was hit in the head. I spent two weeks in bed, sick, with nothing but my summer clothes that I escaped with and my colors.
Painting was the only thing that accompanied me, and I complained to it about my pain.
