Hi my name is Sjafwan, living in Berlin and i’m reaching out for a friend in Gaza that has lost everything during this ongoing genocide over there. It's Wafaa with her 4 kids. They are literally trying to survive right now. Food is scarce and everything has tripled in price. The reason for this gogetfunding is so they have food , clothes, the basic necessities, maybe even chances are possibly having to relocate to Egypt. They are in a very difficult situation.

I asked Wafaa to share some of her words with you. She wants to express her deep gratitude for any support that can be provided. She and her family have been living in unimaginable conditions due to this genocide. They are staying in Rafah, which is facing heavy bombardment.

In her own words:

My name is Wafaa and I am a widowed mother with four children. My husband died four years ago because of an open heart surgery which failed. He left me with four young children, the oldest of whom is ten years old and the youngest of whom is three years old.

Life was already pretty difficult for us here in Rafah Gaza. But especially now since the 7th of October, life is horrible. My house was damaged by the bombing. I live in a border area, very close to the border fence. Now we're staying at an UNRWA school.

Since the beginning of the war, I have not fed my children bread, milk, or even eggs, and sometimes we drink unhealthy water. The prices here are very expensive for food and I do not have the money to buy my children what they need. It's so hard …

My brothers and their families are in North Gaza, the northern sector, which the occupation says is a buffer zone. The situation is very difficult. A month ago, I contacted them. They were fine, and after that, communication was cut off until now. I have not heard anything from them since. It is not easy and the no news is heartbreaking.

This genocide in Gaza is like an earthquake, like a volcano everywhere ....I ask Allah to protect my family. Life is already difficult when the mother is the breadwinner for the children and raising them in Gaza, but especially now! Reality is much more difficult than writing, it is indescribable …

We are a people who place our souls on the palm of our hand.

Today has passed like yesterday, and nothing has changed except the bombing and increasing destruction, and the world will not do anything.

My youngest son of 3 would ask many times, saying: “Mama, let us go to the sea, to the amusement park.” He was dreaming of it every minute of the days before the aggression.

His words broke my heart so much.

The hours of the night pass and darkness descends on all parts of the Gaza Strip amidst the interruption of communications and the Internet in some areas. Meanwhile, we hear the sounds of rockets, shells, bullets and explosions that do not stop, and all our conversations are to ourselves, who is next? We comfort each other and bid each other farewell and may Allah be pleased with you, may Allah protect us and you, may Allah relieve us, O Allah. With these words we are trying to be patient with each other under this bombing that does not stop for a few seconds in Gaza”

We are incredibly grateful for any donations that can help us achieve our goal of providing Wafaa and her family with the support they desperately need. Your generosity can make a significant difference in their lives. Thank you for your kindness and compassion.

Idul Fitr message Wafa.

Update posted by Sjafwan La at 02:52 pm

Message from Wafaa, one day after Idul Fitr (11 April): Happy Idul Fitr my brother and your honorable family, especially to your mother. Unfortunately, the situation is still very difficult, with bombing everywhere. Despite the pain, sorrow and wounds, I bought my children simple clothes at a high price. May. . . . .

Transfer already 100Euro from the first few donations.

Update posted by Sjafwan La at 06:34 pm

Hello dear people, Wafa and her children survived another night. I thought it would be a good idea, in consultation with Wafa, to transfer 100Euro from the first few donations. And thus gradually spread the money over a period instead of waiting a little longer and then transferring the total. . . . .

" Souls in the palm of our hands”

Update posted by Sjafwan La at 10:54 pm

I asked Wafa what the sentence mean what she wrote: “We are a people who place our souls in the palm of our hands”. She explained, that they are the people who do not fear death, they sleep preparing themselves for death. I contacted Wafaa and ask how it was.
