BRINGING HOPE TO KHALIL and his family –

Hello/As-salamu alaikum to all

My name is Wendy and I am a Canadian who has supported Palestine since I learned the truth of the situation 20 odd years ago. I, like you, am horrified by the insane genocide being carried by Israel and bankrolled by the US and others in front of the collective eyes of the world… to an already beleaguered people suffering the effects of decades of occupation, blockade and apartheid. I am heartbroken... I feel sorrow, horror and anger all the time. I can't turn it off like a tv....

About six years ago I got to know a young man who's name is Khalil Questa. He's a pharmacist, who in his spare time has worked so selflessly for others, for years … something quite unheard of in the western world as we all know. Please check out the work he has done over the years with Bringing Hope to Gaza - BHTG.

This remarkable young person was born in a camp in Khan Younis and lived there his whole life until December when he and his 12 immediate family members… mom and dad, his brother, six sisters, brother-in-law and a young niece and nephew left everything in the hopes of surviving this horror... like everyone else. Little did they know there was no safety anywhere. They are now, like others, living in a tent in Rafah. It is absolutely devastating to know this.

Although Khalil loves Gaza, he and his family are fearful all the time…with good reason. Every minute everyone is in danger. Food is scarce and so is drinkable water. Starvation, disease and death are everywhere. They are desperate to get to Egypt even if only on temporary visas. But they are very expensive… $5K US per adult and $2,500 per child. It is so unjust...but the sad truth is that there will always be those who try to profit from the suffering of others. He hopes to leave with some if not all his family members but wants to return to help in the future to help rebuild his beloved Gaza and indeed Palestine.

I am but one person. I am not Muslim, but that doesn’t matter. What I am is human. Their pain is our pain. Their suffering is our suffering. To stand with Palestine is to stand with humanity. To me, Palestinians are the MOST courageous people in the world worthy of all respect and dignity.

I am so proud to know Khalil and I am constantly worried about him and his family - as I worry about everyone in Gaza. Will you help me to help him? Any amount is welcome… The only fees deducted are those charged by the platform.

Thank you/Shukran. Peace be with you.
