I just got off the phone with Abdulhadi & khalil. Two brothers, one lost his eye, another his limbs in the 2009 attack.
“Hamdul Allah we are fine.. three days no water, electricity. Our neighborhood is a ghost town. Everyone evacuated, two missiles hit two houses next to ours. We are fine.. its difficult to see children go through this”..
The UAE community hosted both brothers in 2010 for medical treatment. Khalil became the first double amputee scuba diver in the Arab world. Abdulhadi an amazing human being, an artist, a confident outspoken young man who relentless asks me what he can do for others. I pray that he and his family survive.
I asked how I can help.. “Allah yebarek fiki.. pray for an end to this.”
Please pray for their safety and that of others around them.
