Just a reminder > Gaza Emergency Appeal – Maryam's Story

This is Maryam. At just 14 years old, she lives in the Gaza Strip with her 14-member-family.

“Dad is fisherman. Sometimes I go with him to help. I feel happy when I see the sea. I feel freedom. Dad has a small fishing boat. He can’t sail deep in the sea for fishing. That’s why my family doesn’t have enough income.

From time to time, there is a scary war. I am afraid of losing someone from my family. I lived
three difficult wars and I always expect a new war. Getting water is difficult. Tap water, which is mostly cut, is undrinkable. Electricity is mostly cut off. Our home turns dark as soon as the sun sets.

I was born with one kidney. I started getting kidney dialysis treatment when I was six. It is so exhausting to go to the hospital. It affects my progress at school. Alhamdulillah, I only go once a week now.”

It would be easy to think that one person cannot make a difference. However, at Human Appeal, we are here for ‘the one.’ For the one child, just like Maryam, who desperately needs our support, and this is one opportunity to help.

Let’s be one. Unite with us this Ramadan to help the people of Gaza.
