My family lives in war-torn Gaza. My children and I between the ages of 4, 2 and 1 years cannot plan for any type of future and struggle to meet basic human needs such as rent, clothing and food. (The first pictures included are my family). And we do not have enough money for basic living. Often times, we do without them. We often have to live on bread to survive. Like all humans, I dream that we can live a decent life with my children without fear to survive another day. Here is their story in their own words:
Hello Friends, My name is emAhmed and I am from Palestine, where I live in Gaza with my husband and three children. The situation here in Gaza is terrifying. Bombs fall on us, and many other restrictions do not work in the city.
There are no jobs for me, and my husband Hajar and he no longer calls us. We lost him and left my children and me suffering the consequences. We direct this app for assistance in purchasing food and medicine. Although this is a war zone, we simply want to live in dignity like other families, so please, please - don't ignore my story. Any donation will help us and make our lives possible.
We live in only one room of asbestos ’, where it is freezing winter, so rain will leak on us
My children need food, drink, clothes, and education and treatment fees too
Many thanks to those who have already donated to help us feed our children and put a smile on their faces. Once again, thank you very much for your kindness.
The media provides the main stream of very little information on what is happening in Gaza. Many people are under the mistaken impression that the rights of the Palestinians are in favor of being anti-Jewish. This is far from the issue and I can confirm that I do not hold hatred in my heart for any ethnic group. I am, nevertheless, a great supporter of fundamental human rights. What is happening in Palestine is incorrect and constitutes war crimes. Any moral warfare does not commit violence against children, women, and the elderly.
There is a long and volatile history of the current situation. I realize, as many do, that it is a very complex situation that has been happening for years. We hope that the Israeli and Palestinian peoples will one day learn to learn in peace.
