Apr 1, 2024 UPDATE: Thank you all for the donations so far! Ahmed has decided to also start a GoFundMe campaign to help increase reach of donors. I decided to lower the goal of the campaign back down to the original $2,000 for food and supplies and have the larger goal reflected in the GoFundMe campaign. I have linked the GoFundMe and will update this campaign to reflect donations raised there (they will be reflected as “offline donations”) as well for anyone following to ensure Ahmed’s family is safe

Feb 24, 2024 UPDATE: I’ve been messaging with Ahmed this morning and he and his family have made the difficult decision to leave Rafah in hopes of escaping the atrocities they are subjected to daily. Ahmed and 5 of his family members are trying to raise funds to cross at the Egyptian border, the current charge is ~$3000/person to cross. The new goal of the fundraiser is for enough funds to cover all 6 people crossing the border ($18,000) and the original $2,000 to help keep everyone alive while they continue sheltering in Rafah until they can leave. Ahmed has let me know that once there is enough for him to cross, he will go first so he can do more to help get the rest of his family across. Please help Ahmed and his family get to safety

———————————————————————-
Ahmed and his family are currently sheltering in Rafah, subject to constant bombardment, intentional starvation, and without access to functional health facilities. Ahmed, his brother, his sister, and his nephew are all sharing a small room in Rafah with their relatives and are just trying to survive these difficult circumstances. Please help Ahmed provide food for his family amidst the super high prices of available goods. Please donate anything you can to Ahmed’s family to help them stay fed as Gaza is subjected to starvation.

*note about organizer: My name is Geronimo, I am from Connecticut, US and I’m organizing this on Ahmed’s behalf. I am an electrical engineer just as he is and I wish more than anything that we could be chatting about engineering instead of how to get flour for his family. Please, please, help feed this family and donate today because every day is a battle to stay alive in Gaza.

Update posted by Ahmed AbuRaida at 06:09 pm

I was messaging with Ahmed this morning and he let me know that conditions have gotten bad enough that his family has made the decision to try to leave Gaza. He told me they are charging $3,000 per person to enter Egypt. His hope was to raise enough for him. . . . .
