Urgent plea: help my family evacuate from Gaza

Donation protected
Dear supporters' friends,

I am writing with a heavy heart to inform you about the dire situation my family is facing in Gaza. The ongoing war, leaving our lives in ruins. We are currently living in tents, with no access to clean water, electricity, food, schools, or even homes. Our once thriving city has been completely devastated, and we have been forced to evacuate from the north to the south in search of safety.

I am reaching out for help because my family is currently located in the north of Gaza, and they are struggling to access basic needs such as food and water, especially during the month of Ramadan. As our financial situation is dire, we are unable to purchase these necessities ourselves. Any assistance, even just basic needs, would be greatly appreciated until we are able to gather enough funds to evacuate from Gaza. I am particularly concerned for my grandchildren , who have disabilities and are in urgent need of help, but are also suffering from lack of food and resources. Your support would mean the world to us during this difficult time.

Unfortunately, our new living situation is a stark contrast to what it used to be. The tents provide no protection from the relentless heat or the rains, and the lack of medical support and shelter is a daily concern.

The cost of evacuating each family member from Gaza to Egypt is approximately $5,000.

We kindly appeal to you to support our cause in any way you can. Whether it is through donations or by sharing our link and spreading the word, your support would mean the world to us. Every dollar counts, and together, we can secure a better future for our family.

Please, help us evacuate from war-torn Gaza to a safe place. Let us rebuild our lives and find stability once again. Together, we can create a better future for my children, who deserve every opportunity to thrive.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity.

Our beneficiary is Yasmin, is a very close family member and a friend whom we trust. Because GoFundMe policy does not allow us to connect our bank account in Gaza, we have asked Yasmin to be our beneficiary and receive the funds on our behalf. Yasmin will provide the money to me immediately after she receives it.
