Dear compassionate friends,

I am Lina, a 24-year-old Palestinian residing in Gaza, currently facing challenging times marked by the distressing impact of the ongoing genocide. Since October 7th, the region is grappling with severe shortages in basic necessities, including electricity, water, internet access, and proper health care.

The impact of the Gaza genocide has profoundly altered the lives of many. Over the past few months, my sister and I have been enduring a relentless journey of evacuation in pursuit of safety. So far, we have evacuated for 6 times in order to escape the random bombardment. My sister and I count ourselves fortunate to be the sole survivors of a direct strike on my aunt's house, our initial place of evacuation. Since that harrowing incident, our daily existence is overshadowed by the constant fear of whether we will be alive the next day or not.


”Surviving the Unthinkable: The remains of my aunt's house, a stark reminder of the day we emerged alive after it was bombed.”

The present aggression events have not only impacted my safety, but also my academic life and career. I have been admitted with a fully sponsored scholarship for the 2023/2024 fall semester at the University of Bristol. However, I haven’t been able to join due to the border closure on October and hence I lost my scholarship.


Before the onset of aggression, I was actively engaged in coordinating tech projects at the Women’s Affairs Center’s incubator, focusing on empowering unemployed female youth freelancers and entrepreneurs to launch their careers in the international market. Presently, amidst the prevailing conflict, I am actively engaged in volunteer efforts aimed at aiding war-affected and vulnerable women. This includes extending support to individuals encountering various challenges such as sexual harassment and instances of gender-based violence (GBV). My contributions encompass the provision of psychological assistance and the distribution of dignity kits, underscoring a commitment to fostering resilience and well-being among those impacted by adversity.


I’m launching this fundraiser to secure our evacuation through the Egyptian border which demands $7,000 per person. Furthermore, we require additional funds to facilitate our resettlement in Egypt.

My Sister Successfully Evacuated from Gaza

Update posted by Lina Shehada at 10:56 pm

My sister successfully evacuated from Gaza to Egypt without incurring border fees. Consequently, the targeted amount we aim to reach has been diminished. So far, we have achieved 24% of our intended goal. Thank you all for your unwavering support❤️
