If only the World know how many dreams were lost in Gaza.. Just as its people did .

And how one’s struggles with one’s ambitions turn from small wars with life to a fierce war bigger than his whole life.

I am Mohammed from Gaza, I finished my university studies in 2018 and obtained a bachelor's degree in engineering, and from that year until 2020 I am looking for a job opportunity inside my city (Gaza), but I did not get it despite my excellence in my field of study. All because of unemployment and the difficult living situation imposed on the Strip by the occupation.

After a long effort and great fatigue; and through a relative residing in Turkey, I got a job opportunity in one of the leading companies in my field of study. Indeed, at the end of 2020, I was able to obtain a Palestinian travel document (passport) for which I could barely save its price, and completed all travel procedures to Turkey, where I found my livelihood, which will be the first and brightening of my unknown future.

At the beginning of 2021, in February, I received my work, and I was very happy that increased at the end of the same month after receiving my first salary.

Since that time I started communicating with my father and agreeing with him to send a lump monthly amount from my salary (most of it) in order to build a house for me when I return to my homes. The days have passed and I am like this, happy as I paint my future with my own hands and in my imagination a lot of dreams that I have at the end of each month.

On Saturday, 7-10-2023, I woke up to the sound of the ringing of my phone, as it is a call from my father, and with great eagerness, longing and love, I raised my phone saying (Allo, Baba, my love) and the response was sudden with my father's tired voice full of fear, saying, "O Muhammad, Gaza is under Israeli attack and a cruel war.. At the first moment, I did not understand what my father was talking about, and then I was more surprised after following me and reviewing me on social media sites from the magnitude of the destruction and the harshness of the blows to the sector.

At the end of October, at the date agreed between me and my unemployed father to send my salary allocated for building my house, I asked him to allocate the amount to meet their needs in light of this war.

I continued to send my entire salary for three months in order to support my family and strengthen their resilience amid the increasingly fierce Israeli war.

And here was the shock; a late call from my father on a cold night covered with the blackness of darkness, through which he tells me as he sighs with his heartbeat full of pain and pain that the war machine (warplanes) targeted my house, which I did not see and completely destroyed it, and here, and from the shock, the phone fell from my hand and my tears of oppression and sadness followed me until this day, lamenting years lost in a glance, tiredness, and a night to build my dream house, which was the first formation of my future, which became gray because of war and the machine.

After that, the blackness of the world was in my mind, and the despair of me and the state of helplessness between me and myself for not being able to get up again after I lost my house, which left my family and my country and lived the bitterness and cruelty of alienation in order to build it, everything I dreamed was lost, and the pain, oppression and tears remained.

- From here and from this platform, I appeal to everyone who passed and read my story that I wrote with my heart before my hands to help me rise again and rebuild my house, which was destroyed by the war, and to support me in drawing my future through my support and donating to me through the attached link, and you have longed for humanity with love and coalition, not with war and destruction. "By your solidarity and support for me, I will rebuild my destroyed house."

Your friend :- Mohammed
