I am Hamid Taha, a Palestinian resident of Gaza. I learned English 4 years ago to communicate with people all over the world to tell them about our suffering in Gaza. Honestly, I think every family in Gaza has a tragic story! However, here's my family story:
We live in extreme poverty, mainly due to the Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza for almost 13 years. We all rely on my father to bring money to the family. A job that will help me ensure a better future for my family and me.
My mother suffers from chronic diseases. She lost her right eye and suffered from very poor vision
We barely managed to earn money to cover our living expenses. I don't like to admit it, but on some difficult days my father hides in his room and we hear him cry because he can't buy some food for us. Our lives are so appalling. It goes beyond horrible. I tear my heart every moment I see my family dream of a decent life, but nothing changes and things get worse. We have a large family and the current house is hardly suitable for a couple. So, I feel so desperate and sad that people of my age are still sleeping in the same room with my other brothers and sisters!
I've been looking for jobs, making thousands of plans to build a suitable home for my family, and dedicating my life to surprise them by proving to them that there is still some hope, and I can build a house fit for them because we rented our other man's homes. But none of these plans have worked. For now, I have this final plan and I hope it will succeed in shaping the most wonderful surprise for my family:
A friend recently told me about launching a crowdfunding campaign and said it would help me achieve a real dream. He also told me that GOGETFUNDING is the most suitable platform and confidence to launch such a campaign. So now I am launching this campaign, hoping that our dream will come true. I will do my best to reach every single person who will help me build my family's dream home and I hope that if you go through this, you will support this campaign by any means that should make us thank you forever!
