Please help my friend Hasan and his family in Gaza

Something far, far more important than Google or Amazon—neither of which I particularly enjoy writing about, but do so only as a public service. Ditto with anything I’ve written about social media.

My friend and typeface design colleague Hasan Abu Afash and his family have been displaced by the war in Gaza, and they are currently in a camp in Rafah with no power and water. Their home is no more, and obviously Hasan can’t work as they’re literally trying to survive.

Even in Rafah, they are under constant threat, and the family want to escape. There are six in the family.

His son has just graduated from his electrical engineering course and was trying to build his life. His daughter was in her fourth year and his second son was in his second year at med school. The college has been destroyed. They averaged over 90 per cent in their courses. Finally, his youngest daughter is 15 and was attending high school.

The reality is that Hasan needs US$5,000 for each member of his family to travel out of Gaza and to reach Egypt, where the family can rebuild their lives.

He’s prepared to provide further information to prove the above, but in the meantime, I’m asking anyone out there to donate to his Paypal. I already have, and I know many of you who follow me on Mastodon have, so let’s get some way toward the US$30,000 Hasan and his family need.

If anyone wishes to send a bigger amount to his son’s account at the Bank of Palestine, please get in touch with me and I’ll send over the full details.
