From rubble to hope

From rubble to hope
Nagham Al-Tanna

rebuilding our live in Gaza

 

Hello, my name is Nagham Al-Tanna, and I'm from the heart of Gaza, Palestine—a place deeply scarred by the resonating echoes of conflict, that have touched the lives of so many, including my family. Amid ongoing turmoil, our lives have been upended, our dreams dashed, and our very sense of home shattered.

In northern Gaza, where we live, our home has not been spared. It stands, though damaged, as a testament to the relentless conflict that surrounds us. My story is not just about the destruction of physical structures, but about the crumbling of hopes and the yearning for normalcy in a life once filled with simpler joys.

 

As I navigate my final year of high school, I'm holding tightly to the dream of furthering my education, despite the rubble that was once my school. My determination to pursue knowledge, to reach for a future brighter than our present, remains undimmed. But this journey is not mine alone; it is shared with my family, a family of 9 souls each carrying their own burden of dreams deferred and opportunities lost.

 

My sisters and brothers, bright and educated, find themselves ensnared by the circumstances of our reality. Despite their university degrees, the paths to employ their knowledge are blocked by the ceaseless conflict. Mohammed, trained to heal as a nurse, stands idle without a place to offer his skills. Abdallah's expertise in software engineering and Heba's training in physical therapy lie dormant, their talents untapped amidst the chaos. Majd, who dreams of coding and software, has seen her aspirations interrupted, her education halted prematurely by the war.

 

The heart of our family, our parents, endure their own battles amidst this storm. My father, once a beacon of strength, now faces severe health challenges in his retirement, a time when peace should be his companion, not the specter of illness. Beside him, my mother, the cornerstone of our home, battles her health issues, her resilience tested every day as she strives to provide and care in these dire circumstances.

It is in these moments of darkness, with survival a daily battle and hope a flicker in the night, that we turn to you, the global community, for support. Through this Steunactie campaign, our plea is heartfelt and urgent—not merely to rebuild a house, but to restore the essence of what makes it a home, and with it, the dreams it nurtures.

 

Our goal is $15,000, a beacon for a new dawn. Each donation, no matter its size, lays the foundation for our renewed beginning, helping to restore the safety and peace torn from us by war.

 

Your support transcends the physical rebuilding of walls; it kindles the dreams within us. It opens doors to education, provides medical assistance, and paves the way for employment and self-reliance.

 

In a landscape shadowed by despair, your generosity shines brightly, showcasing the indomitable strength and compassion of humanity. Every contribution, every share, takes us a step closer to not just rebuilding a structure, but to reviving lives brimming with hope, dreams, and the invincible human spirit.

 

We recognize the privilege in being able to give, and we are immensely grateful for any form of support—whether through a donation or by sharing our story. Your help magnifies our voice, transforming despair into hope, one share, one donation at a time.

Together, let us knit a tapestry of resilience, hope, and the enduring strength of the human spirit. Thank you for standing with us, for believing in the possibility of a brighter tomorrow, and for helping us turn the page from the shadows of the past to a future lit with hope.
