Northern Gaza family needs our support to survive

Donation protected
My name is Rania and I am trying to raise funds for my friend Ahmed and his family - they are unable to do so on their own from within Gaza. I want them to survive. I want them to live. It could be me. It could be you. Palestinian lives matter!

Please also read the article I wrote about the bond between Ahmed and I: https://thisweekinpalestine.com/gaza-your-life-is-my-life/

Finally, kindly see message below from Ahmed himself:

Hello, it’s Ahmed Dremly…I’m a five-war survivor, yet I’m not sure if I will make it this time around. I’m writing this message from the north of Gaza where I grew up, where I belong, and where I seeded the memories of my whole life which were all demolished in this war. Today our situation in the north is beyond the imagination - there is no food to feed our hungry mouths, no clean water to clean our empty stomachs, and no medicine to help our neglected injured.

I used to live with my parents and my married brother in a small apartment, until my three sisters with their families sought refuge with us after two of them - Lina and Diana - had their homes destroyed during the Israeli invasion. So they have stayed with us as they have no other shelter.

Haya, my youngest sister with her husband and two little kids - in addition to my brother with his wife and three little children - preferred to evacuate to the south of Gaza to put less pressure on the family here and to ‘distribute’ so if part of us were killed, at least the others would stay alive.

Now, my sister Haya and her family are in a terrible situation in Rafah.

During the first days of the war against Gaza, I managed to buy canned food and other stuff from my savings, as I'm the only breadwinner of the family. But after two months of the war, the food and my savings were finished. The price of food and other basics for our survival render me helpless to manage our life in this dire situation. I refused to seek any help or assistance before, but now I think I have to do anything possible to support my 19-member family, the 17 relatives with us who have evacuated their own homes - including my 75 year-old grandmother, my severely injured uncle, and my five orphaned cousins who lost their father in an airstrike.

The use of these funds will be for:

$10,000 which could be enough for two months to purchase: flour (or anything similar that might be available) which costs $500 per 25-kilo bag; pampers for the 3 little children of my nieces and nephews, which costs $100 for one bag; blankets and clothes, most people fled their houses without bringing any belongings; and medicine for my diabetic mother, heart patient grandmother, and my injured uncle and cousins, especially due to the lack of healthcare and food in the north caused by the Israeli invasion.

$3000 to buy three solar panels, an inverter, and batteries, to power our house after five months of the electricity cut and to have the ability to charge our devices so we can still be connected to the world.

$10,000 for repairs of my two sisters’ destroyed houses, so they can return to their homes.

$20,000 to help rebuild our lives from scratch, if we can.

I am afraid this is our last opportunity to survive. We have lost everything, but your donations can help save our lives.

Thank you for considering our plea in these desperate times...
