Donation protected
Hello everyone, I’m sharing and organizing this campaign on behalf of my cousin karim and my aunt family, at least what’s left of them… As some of you know I was able to raise over 80k to get my mom and sisters out of Gaza which we have successfully achieved with your help and support and prayers….I hope you all can extend your kindness to this beautiful family who have been traumatized of what have happened to them during this war on Gaza! 
 This is a message from my cousin -

 “I am Karim Almasri , a 21-year-old studying physical therapy in my third year. Allow me to share my family's story with you. We the Almasri family, from  northern Gaza.  On the morning of October 7th, we heard explosions and bombings which continued for hours. Seeking refuge, we went to my aunt Um Hassan Abu Alba's house in Tal Al-Hawa.
Together with my mother, brother Ali, sister Maria (19 years old), and Fatima (15 years old), we tried to support each other during the wartime, like in previous conflicts, to ease fear and terror.  
On October 9th, we received news of an attack on the area where we were at the time , my aunt house. we were forced to evacuate for the second time.

 When we moved to my aunt house from northern Gaza, my siblings Mohammed and his family remained in our home, including Hadi (8 years old), Ali (6 years old), and two-year-old Sham. My brother Jamal and his wife, Jihad (26 years old), Amir (24 years old), and Hasan (17 years old) also stayed behind. 

      On the unforgettable night of October 10th, at midnight, my friend called, informing me that our neighbor's house had been bombed, causing our home to collapse.
Sadly, my eldest brother, Mohammed and his family and my brother Jamal were martyred.

We waited anxiously until morning, and with the Civil Defense's help, my other 3 siblings were rescued from under the rubble of our demolished home. Jihad sustained moderate injuries to his leg and arm which would lead to amputation of his leg if not treated outside of Gaza immediately . 

    my sister in law , remained trapped and bleeding under the debris for two agonizing days Untill she was rescued after being heard banging with a rock from under the rubble by her father who been anxiously looking for his daughter (my sister in law)

   Despite our efforts, we found Jamal's lifeless body under our collapsed home, along with the bodies of Mohammed's wife and their two children.

  A 6 year old child, miraculously survived with a serious head injury. Ali was the only one left in his family and was given another chance. Ali was found 2 days later from under the rubble.

  me and my sisters , we found a shelter . Alongside my aunt Um Hassan Abu Alba's family and my uncle's family, around 27 individuals, we stayed in Khan Yunis. One night we were hit by a tank shell strike, leaving three people injured and later announced dead from the neighbors . We ran in fear of getting another shell which would leave us dead , we left the shelter at midnight, lived in a tent on the street, enduring the sounds of shells and explosions overhead.

we moved to Rafah after so much efforts of trying to find a place to shelter, we were Crowded into a small storage space with my aunt's family and my uncle's family. As you follow the news about the extensive military operation in Rafah, we remain uncertain about our future—unsure whether we will survive, where we will go.  Please help us get out of Gaza and relocate what’s left of my family to somewhere safer”
