US$95.00Donated So Far
I am Maram Albawwab, a digital artist freelancer in Turkey. I am reaching out for assistance on behalf of my family, who are currently facing homelessness and health issues in Gaza. They are innocent civilians who have been severely affected by the ongoing war.
Since the war started, my parents and my brother's family had to vacate their home in one neighborhood and seek refuge in my sister's house in another area, because as you can see it was a modest house with a fragile asbestos ceiling, so it was very unsafe to stay at home.
On 8th Oct, a large tower next to my family's residence, known as Al Watan Tower, was targeted and destroyed, causing extensive damage to the entire neighborhood, including our house and my brother's house leaving them Uninhabitable (luckily they were evacuated).
On 9th Oct, A miracle happened! Recognizing the escalating danger in their neighborhood, they decided to temporarily leave my sister's house for a safer location, As they were going to get in my brother's car, an intense bombing occurred right next to them, propelling them away. They sustained injuries and were running in the street until a passing ambulance, by pure chance, spotted them and rushed them to the hospital.
4 days later, they found out that my sister's house had been reduced to rubble, and my brother's car was completely destroyed.
My mom (Suhayla) is 70 years old, She suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure.
My dad (Moghannam) is 82 years old, He suffers from Prostate.
My brother (Nemer) and his wife (Neveen) are parents to an adopted child (Mohammed).
My sister (Nermin) has (Ghassan) her child, who is orphan and holds Chilean citizenship from his Father who passed away 4 years ago.
They are homeless now, and winter is coming.
All funds collected will be used to buy my parents medicine, get the basic needs, and rebuild our houses.

Ghassan was injured by white phosphorus and toxic bombs thrown by the occupation in the area, so he was moved to the intensive care unit at Al-Rantisi Hospital. The situation was also extremely critical and surrounded by intense shelling and fire.
