Gaza is sealed off from the rest of the world - that's what

started all of this, gazans are suffocating from economic and military seige!

All mail sent to Palestinians from abroad must first be delivered to

Israel. Mail is regularly blocked by Israel and prevented from being delivered to

the people of Gaza.

I've sent my fiance items, documents before in the past and he never received

and thats because we stay in the west bank.

My family sent me a care package with my favorite snacks and items I missed

never did receive it (acutally I did - 11 months later but I had already left).

Ya, I highly doubt they would get there, Rajaa. It's a very noble idea though.

I think donations to the aid foundations would be the best route.

If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.

Thanks!

Rajaa I know you mean well but Gazan's do not need blankets, clothes, radios, etc., they are in desparate need of food and medical supplies. The border is sealed off and has been even for a very long time. Palestinians have their every movement controlled by Israel. Israel decided what enters and leaves. Again, it's been like that for a very long time.

People can donate all the medical and food supplies they want but unfortanetly it's

up to Israel on whether it goes in or not. If they haven't allowed supplies to enter in the past I don't see it happening now.

God help them.

It is very difficult to get money to individuals to Gaza. My ILs have had to carry money on their person in order to give it to my SIL.

What is most in need is medical supplies and basic food supplies. No groups are getting in right now, but as soon as we can hear from his sister who is able to help and what groups ARE getting through, I will let you know.

The best that we can offer up is prayers to keep all of the innocent civilians safe...ALL of them.

what if i packed my bags with MREs and flew there???? and went in myself?

Gaza is sealed off to internationals / foreigners has been for the past several years. I'm guessing

Israel does not want outsiders seeing the unbearable squalid living conditions Gazans are living in for fear outside visitors will relay to the the rest of the world how Israel has trapped them into the worlds largest open air prison.

Someone prompted me to ask hubby about donating to Gaza last night and this is what he told me...

He had a friend who is a multi millionaire here in the states. This friend had family in Gaza so he was sending money over to help not only his family but anyone else the family could help. The US government found out about it and stripped this man of his US citizenship. He had been in the states for over 20 years and they pulled it out from under him just like that. They took his green card and had him deported with no return allowed. They warned him that if he had any other foreign friends who were helping Gaza, he should warn them that this will happen to them too because helping gaza in any way is aiding terrorist organizations.

This halted my idea of helping because although I wish with my heart and soul that I could do something for them...I don't want my husband to be deported. So what is left to do??? Pray. I'm praying as hard as I can every day that the remaining civilians stay safe and unharmed...It's sad....

My ILs hold Palestinian passports and they've had difficulty getting in the last few years and not at all for almost two years now.

The last time my MIL went, she had to wait at the Egyptian border for 3 weeks...waiting everyday for the border to open.
