“Before we go to sleep, we say goodbye to each other”
“Picture a child in Gaza right now. Instead of bedtime stories, they hear explosions; instead of dreams, they have nightmares. These kids are living through a terrifying reality that no one should experience,” asserts Khitam Abuhamad, Head of our Gaza Office.
“Almost all of us left our homes, the majority of us are staying with relatives,” says Khitam. “I fled with two of my sisters to the South of Gaza. We lost connections with other family members and friends. It’s hard to reach people by phone – at the same time you need courage to try and call, fearing to hear sad news. We are 20 people sleeping in each room, with no electricity, and water is hard to find. The night is especially scary. We try to sleep knowing that this might be our last night. Before we go to sleep we say goodbye to each other. Waking up every morning is like a miracle. “
