Urgent Appeal: Gaza Evacuation for Assia's Family

Donation protected
Hello, I am Tasneem Abu Lamdi from Gaza. I am married and have a 7-month-old daughter named Asia.

Our Story

The war began when my daughter Asia was just three months old. She grew up amidst the horrors of bombing and the terrifying sounds of rockets. We were displaced from our home and had to live in a tent after the house next to ours was bombed. On that dreadful night, our house was completely damaged, and my daughter Asia, who was only four months old, suffered from the shock of the explosions and their intensity.

I dreamed that Asia would grow up in a better environment than what she experienced. She needs special care, but due to the lack of basic necessities and the absence of healthy food and proper nutrition, fulfilling this dream has become difficult. My dreams faded along with my home. My husband aspired to continue his programming career abroad in better fields, but his laptop was damaged. Now, he is jobless due to the lack of electricity and a laptop for work.

Our Needs

I am here to ask for help and support for my family. Obtaining food and medicine has become difficult and expensive. Milk for my daughter Asia is very costly. We are also living with my parents and sisters, two of their children, and my sister, who is nine months pregnant. We are registered to evacuate to Egypt soon and will need funds for travel, food, and to secure my family's needs after we leave. I also have four brothers staying in Gaza, the youngest of whom is 12 years old.

We also wish to travel to Canada and apply for asylum there due to the unavailability of Egyptian residency for Palestinians leaving Gaza amidst the war. Additionally, please consider the costs of visa and immigration fees to Canada, airfare, and unforeseen expenses.

Estimated Costs

  • Travel costs to Egypt: $5000-7000$ (per person)
  • Temporary accommodation in Egypt (for two months): $1000 (per person)
  • Food and medicine costs: $600 per month
  • Purchase of a new laptop for work: $1200
  • Visa and immigration fees to Canada: $1500 (per person)
  • Airfare to Canada: $2000 (per person)
  • Unexpected expenses: $1000
  • GoFundMe fees 2.5 % + Transfer fees 5%

How to Help

After exhausting all available options, it seems that collecting donations is the only way to help me, my husband, and my daughter secure a safe place and a decent living. Our friend in Belgium is responsible for collecting donations and sending them to us directly.

Your support will be greatly appreciated by me and my family. Please share this appeal with anyone who can help in any way.

Update: Family Evacuated, Remaining Relatives in Gaza Facing Continued Danger

Dear Esteemed Donors,

I'd like to provide you with a new update regarding our situation. While my husband Mahmoud, our daughter Asia, and I have managed to evacuate to a safe location, the rest of our family members are still in Gaza, facing ongoing danger.

This update underscores the importance of your generous efforts and continued support. As we prepare to start a new life in a safe country, we remain deeply concerned about the safety of our family members trapped in Gaza.

We are grateful to each and every one of you for your support and solidarity thus far. We urge you to share our story and spread our campaign among friends and family, as your support will help us provide necessary assistance to our remaining family members in Gaza.

Together, we can make a positive difference and help those in dire need. Thank you once again for your solidarity and generous support.
