The population of the city where we are has doubled, while its resources have stayed the same. A man in the neighbourhood told me they’ve secured a generator to pump water from a nearby well, but can’t find any fuel.
I can’t keep writing. It is draining every drop of energy I have. The tension I feel inside is overwhelming. I am not sure this is end of our journey. I am afraid we are going to be displaced again. Maybe we will become refugees. People live in Gaza as refugees evicted from their home in 1948, and now we might die refugees fleeing for safety in 2023.
Please help Islamic Relief to support people in desperate need in Gaza. Donate to our Palestine Emergency Appeal now.
