After losing his entire family in an airstrike, badly injured 13-year-old Amer urgently needs transfer from Gaza for medical care

by Yousef's friends and colleagues in Liverpool, England, United Kingdom

Thirteen-year-old Amer's home was obliterated by an airstrike, killing his entire family – parents, grandparents, and five siblings. Despite sustaining serious injuries, including a fractured skull and severe burns, Amer miraculously survived. Now, due to a lack of hospital beds, he lies on the floor of a hospital in central Gaza, awaiting proper care. 

His only remaining family member is his uncle, Dr. Yousef Alkhatib, who works as a radiologist at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. As  Yousef's colleagues at the hospital, we are raising funds on his behalf to support Amer's urgent needs.

Yousef is determined to bring Amer to safety and provide the care and support he desperately needs. To make this possible, we urgently need to raise funds. Our goal is to facilitate Amer's transfer from Gaza to Egypt, where he can receive the medical attention he requires. The funds will also be used to cover legal fees associated with bringing Amer to the UK and facilitating his adoption by Yousef. The approximal breakdown of the costs involved is listed below:

  • Transfer to the UK and miscellaneous associated expenses: approximately £3,000.
  • Medical care in Egypt: approximately £10,000.
  • Cost of living in Egypt: approximately £5,000.
  • Legal fees, adoption costs, and UK visa application: £12,000

Time is critical. The child's current condition greatly increases the risk of infection. Not to mention that the building he is in is situated in Deir al Balah, one of Gaza's most heavily bombarded areas.

Let's get him out of there.

Thank you for your support.
