In the United States this week we celebrate Thanksgiving, so we wanted to take an opportunity not only to thank you for supporting the Palestinian children and keeping them in your thoughts, but to take a moment and ask for your continued support in delivering urgently need food.
Ibrahim lives near the border in northern Gaza with his 7 children. His home was protected by metal sheeting on the roof, flour bags on the windows. In order to feed his family, he relies on charities and is unable to provide simple, basic household needs.
“The recent assault on Gaza brought more fear and burdens to our family,” said Ibrahim. “Our home took severe damage, but most important, we survived. We were lucky. In one night we are homeless and now live with relatives whose economic situation is no better and now has increased their burden by 9 people.”
Gaza continues to suffer from total closure, inflicting unjustifiable punishment on the civilian population. Ibrahim continues, “I ask only for the poor people and children who have no guilt for these attacks. At least we need to feel safe and to live in dignity and to be able to feed our children.”
KinderUSA needs your help to raise $25,000 to continue the emergency food distribution and help 500 families like Ibrahim’s. Close to 2 million people live in Gaza, more than half children and in need of food.
All of us at KinderUSA are thankful for donors like you who stand in solidarity and remain committed to the children in Palestine.
