A PHILOS PROJECT INITIATIVE

GAZA EXODUS

Help The Philos Project reunite four Gazan Christian families.

 

Christians have been living in the Holy Land since the time of Jesus. But today, especially in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian Christians are suffering and disappearing due to dire humanitarian circumstances and radical Islamist ideology popularized after the Hamas takeover in 2007. With less than 1,000 Christians left in Gaza, many are seeking a new home in the West Bank. Due to geopolitical constraints, only a few have made it out while leaving the rest of their families behind. The Philos Project is here to help.

  

By Christmas this year, and with the help of our Palestinian Christian Advocacy Fellow Khalil Sayegh, The Philos Project will raise $20,000 USD to reunite and support the relocation, moving and temporary living expenses of four different Gazan Christian families who've been separated by these unfortunate realities on the ground. With your help, we can bring these families together and change their lives forever.

 

 

 

MEET THE FAMILIES

Due to the sensitivity of the issue at hand and safety concerns, the names of the families will remain undisclosed.

Here are their stories.

A.S. Family

A Christian family of six was split after three of the A.S. children found a new life in the West Bank. The son of the A.S. family now lives in Bethlehem, working long hours and longing for the day when he and his family can be reunited again.  

 

M.A family:  

The M.A. family, a Christian family of four, was separated when the two sons moved to the West Bank. One of the sons, now married and expecting a child, states that he could never have imagined raising his kids in Gaza. However, the parents of the M.A. family are still in Gaza and are not allowed to see their children in the West Bank. They hope for the family’s reunion.   

W.S Family: 

The W.S. family of four was separated when the son and daughter sought freedom in the West Bank. Their parents are still stuck in Gaza and long to move to the West Bank to be reunited. 

 

F.A Family: 

A 19-year-old son of the F.A. family, a family of six, had the opportunity to move to the West Bank in the hope of a better life free from Hamas control. His parents and siblings, one sister and two brothers, long to move to the West Bank as well in hopes to reunite their family and flee their present persecution.
