Hello, I am Moaz Ismail from the Gaza Strip, a sad voice calling from Gaza, where my life and the life of my family have been torn apart by the repeated wars in Gaza. My voice rises today to ask for your help in our most difficult moments.

I lost my job, my home, and my family home following the recent war on Gaza, and now I find myself displaced, living in a makeshift nylon and wood tent in Rafah, south of Gaza, with my family of 8.

The days and nights of the war passed very slowly, and we were impatiently waiting for the end of the bombing and the horrific destruction that befell us. We have continued to persevere and persevere to this day.

After 71 days of war and staying in our house, the night was filled with the sounds of bombing, missiles and explosions everywhere. The atmosphere was full of terror and panic. My heart was racing with each explosion accompanied by the cries of the displaced children inside our house. We felt weak and helpless, but we strived to comfort each other and reassure ourselves that everything would be okay in the end. But the bombing intensified, and the gunfire became incredibly powerful.

My family and I were able to evacuate our home amidst flying shrapnel and artillery fire overhead. Seeking shelter, we headed to a nearby shelter where we sought safety until dawn, then moved to a quieter location. In the midst of the rubble, we headed to one of the shelters in the morning, and then headed towards the Rafah area.

They have been displaced several times, desperately searching for a safe haven, but to no avail. Safety remains elusive in Gaza, where every area becomes a target, with explosions occurring without warning. Even places designated for evacuation are still vulnerable to attack.

We are all suffering from psychological trauma as a result of everything that has been happening around us for more than 130 days, and some of us are suffering from various diseases such as colds, pneumonia, and others.

My family and I are urgently seeking to raise funds and secure assistance to leave Gaza immediately. This represents our last resort, because we never wanted to be forced to leave our homes and our country, but safety is rare in Gaza. Nowadays, the only way to choose life is to evacuate. We recently received news of the destruction of our family home in Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip. We have lost everything we hold dear in Gaza, and find ourselves homeless, some of us sick due to scarcity of basic resources and insufficient livelihoods.

We are trapped in Gaza, in the Rafah area, among more than one and a half million displaced people. We appeal for financial assistance to leave Gaza through the Egyptian border crossing (Rafah checkpoint). This is our last resort, and we very much hope you can help provide us with safety and shelter.

Thank you in advance to everyone who contributed or shared the link with those who can help our family.

The financial burden of arranging our escape is beyond our means. We humbly appeal to you for your compassion, generosity and solidarity during these difficult times. Together, you can guide us to safety.
