Help me to save my family in Gaza

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Donia Abozead
my instagram account: donia.zead

I am a Palestinian originaly from Ramla ( an occupied Palestinian city since 1948 ), but I grew up in Gaza City currently living abroad ( Turkiye - Istanbul ) to complete my master degree. My family and everyone I love are living in Gaza, and I believe that mentioning the name of Gaza is enough to send shivers of fear through your body from what's happening there.
I decided to create this campaign after great thought and hesitation, but the urgency greater than my resilience I’m by myself I couldn’t do more for my family and I’m still believe in humanity.
My wish so simple is to give me the chance to see my parents and my siblings again, by allowing them to cross the border to reach Egypt until this madness in my beautiful city ends.

My life in Gaza wasn’t easy. I survived more than six Israeli aggressions before, and every time we start our lives our dreams from scratch, but this is the most brutal genocide, not only in my entire life, but since the beginning of this occupation of my people in 1948.​​

​​In the second week of the starting of this aggression, our house was bombed in the Tal Al-Hawa area / Gaza city. my family came out from under the rubble, and my mum was injured in her back. my family was unable to return to our house since that moment, not even allowing us to see it, due to the separation of the areas of the Gaza Strip from each other.
My family were forced to evacuate several times, they initially took refuge in Al-Quds Hospital, where my mum's injury was treated, but due to the large number of injuries, she didn't stay in the hospital long. They fled to the middle area, and after a period of merciless bombing, they fled south to the Rafah city the most southern area in the Gaza Strip, and now they're threatened to evacuate again, and I don't know where they could escape to. There is no place left and all places in Gaza are unsafe.

every second pass if they survived the bombing there lives is threatened by other factors such as the lack of decent shelter, medicine, lack of clean food and water, and the inevitable spread of diseases.

Imagine these conditions to my father, who suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure. He previously had open-heart surgery with a fracture in his leg, and my mum had a back injury and my siblings are completely unable to do anything to help. There is nothing to do in Gaza except the terrifying wait, in effect I have lost relatives, friends we lost everything we own in Gaza. for me my parents have always been my role model in strength and kindness. I have never seen them weak in this way in my entire life. That is why I feel helpless in front of them now, but we will come back stronger and we will start from scratch again. No problem. All I want now is to try to keep their lives and bring them out for a while until this massacre stops.
For this to happen, I need to pay 8,000 € - this cost is on the rise by the day - for each of them to cross the border from Rafah to Egypt, and I don't have this crazy number. It is not easy for me to ask, but I found myself alone without any other option to help my family.

I have the full right to hug my dad and kiss my mom's hands in peace. I have the full right to see my siblings in safety. Every person in Gaza needs to live in peace. Our cause in Palestine is one of the noblest causes in this world and has been forgotten for many years. I believe that now is the time for the unity of the peoples to end this occupation. The Palestinian people has a strong belief that the right will return to its owner, and we have patience, but at the same time we need our brothers in humanity to support this steadfastness and you can help us to survive.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to evacuate my family from Gaza to Egypt as a first step and then to bring them to live with me in Turkey.
To do that I need to pay 8000 € for each to flee Gaza.
total is: 32000 €
in addition to paying expenses such as renting an apartment in Egypt for one month, the average is 300 €
living cost for this month is:700 €
During this month if I can collect the whole money I will prepare visas for them to enter Turkey, and this gonna cost the Family: 600 €
Airline tickets gonna cost the Family: 1400 €
when they arrive Turkey I need to rent a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 months with an average monthly rent is 600 €
total: 3600 €
they also need monthly living costs of no less than 1500 € per month, total: 9000 €
This is because my family lost all their property due to this aggression and they came out from under the rubble.
in addition to that the GoFundMe transaction fee is 3 %.
Any additional funds will include the medical requirements of my parents, my mum was injured as a result of the bombing of our house and my dad is sick, he has health issues in his heart, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

I really appreciate your kindness to read my story and your support even with any amount you can give. If you can't contribute I simply ask you to share my story in the hopes that it reaches enough people to save my beloved family.
