Help Shaaban Aslem Rebuild His Bookstore

This is fundraiser is to help Shaaban Aslem rebuild his book store in Gaza that was destroyed by Israel during their attack on Gaza in the past week. Many have you have seen the video, and if you have not I have added links below. Shaaban can be seen in the video tearfully stating “he’s lost his dream” and that “he’s gone without many meals to make his dream come true”. My friend Omar and myself reached out to Shaaban and he gave us our permission to create this gofundme. All proceeds will go to Shaaban to help him rebuild his dream - his bookstore. We ask that you please donate any amount that you possibly can and that you share this link where you can.
