Sabrin Family asks the world "Get us Out of Gaza"

Donation protected
Hi I'm Grae from Salt Lake City Utah! (@no.wheygrae on IG) I am putting this fundraiser together for the Sabrin family. Sabrin is a mother of 4 sons, 3 daughters, and grandmother to 2 grandchildren. They are tragically caught in the middle of the war in Gaza. Currently, they are taking shelter in a tent in Al Moasey. They have been displaced several times, already. I was moved to organize for them after getting to know the eldest brother Mohammed and the sister Shomoa. Mohammed is 25 (just two years older than me) and before the war he worked hard to earn a degree in English Literature degree from Al Azhar University Gaza. He graduated in 2022 and has been working as a Search Engine Optimizer to provide from his family since then. But the war changed everything.

What the family has to say to you:
Once you lose everything. Your home, your job, you're beloved ones, you start losing hope in anything in the world , but instead of giving up we wanted to reach the world as a last battle with our struggle. We trust you to support us leave this zone ❤️

Here's their family story from the beginning of the war in Mohammed's words:
After the war began in Gaza, the whole neighborhood that we live in got bombed; the sound and destruction were massive. I looked outside the window and found the sky turned red for a while and nearly everything around turned to rubble. It was a fear that no one in my family has ever felt or imagined, and it was just the beginning.

Then we rushed to get outside the house ASAP before it is our home's turn. We ran away from death with fear and tears, saw fire and people running and screaming everywhere. It took us too long to find another place; we walked for two days, the worst journey of our lives. We saw destruction that no human brain can imagine and got too close to dying on the way.

When we finally arrived, we were exhausted and hungry, and we found ourselves in the middle of the street away from home and in a completely different area. It was a really tough feeling. It was at that moment I realized that our life changed forever.

I have never thought that I would see my family literally in the street, with no food and no water or even hope. We lost everything. My mom closed her eyes with her hands and started to weep, and my father cried too, but he did the best he could to hide it (he is a very sensitive man). My younger siblings started crying too and hugging mom and dad, and I wanted to make it easier for them, but how?! I couldn't. I was traumatized, except for a hug.

The first days in the street were a complete nightmare. It was an insanely harsh and cold environment. My married sister and her children, Ameer and Amal, joined us too. Now we live in a tent, but we can't keep on. Please help us get outside the death zone we are in real danger. If war didn't kill us yet, soon famine and diseases certainly will.

✨Every donation keeps us away from danger. We are so thankful for every person who is opening their heart to share our story and donate. We wish we were in our homes and not asking for your money. ✨

How will the funds be used? (all USD)
The goal now is to evacuate the 11 family members from Gaza. Like many, they will use the "Ya Hala" agency to evacuate them. A detailed list of expenditures is below:
To evacuate via Ya Hala:
$5000 for each person, 11*5000= $55,000

Two months of temporary living expenses in Egypt, including food, shelter, and transportation:
$2500 for the family

Passport fees:
$100 for each person, 100*11=$1100

GoFundMe platform fees:
(Note: GoFundMe takes about 2.9% of each donation, and we are expecting fees when wiring the funds. $58,600 is the total from the three items listed above.)
2.9% of $58,600 = $1699.40

Wiring fees:
(Note: I personally know friends who have wired funds with the same transfer service and this is how we calculated the figure below)
approximately $700
