My name is Mahmoud Abu Warda, a composer and guitarist from Gaza, Palestine. In the summer of 2021, I was forced to leave my city of Gaza and my job there as a music teacher due to the war and the dire living conditions for the sake of ensuring a better future for my wife and child. Sadly, I left behind my 58-year-old mother, 68-year-old father, and four siblings in Gaza.

For the past five months, the residents of Gaza, including my family, have been suffering from the horrors of war, devastation, poverty, illness, and hunger. The situation there has surpassed imagination; there is no longer any semblance of life, access to water, or medical care. They live every minute under bombardment and the threat of death.

Since the war began on October 7th, the Egyptian-Palestinian borders have been closed, and no one can leave without paying exorbitant sums of up to $7000 per person. I am now racing against time and working tirelessly to evacuate my family from Gaza to preserve their lives and to treat my father's illnesses resulting from the war, as he now suffers from severe depression, cardiac arrhythmia, and dangerously high blood pressure.

I have initiated this fundraising campaign to gather the necessary funds to evacuate my family from the brink of death. There is no longer any life left for them there, especially after the destruction we experienced, leaving them with nowhere to live except inside refugee tents amidst rain, wind, and bitter cold.

I deeply appreciate your generous support, knowing full well that every contribution, no matter how small, is a beacon of hope to save the life of a family that was once happy.

Since the beginning of the war in Gaza, my family have endured an indescribable tragedy.
