Transgender Retirement Home Pakistan

Hello everyone & welcome to our money pot! This money will be used specifcally to make the retirement home sustainable. The primary focus is on installing solar panels to ensure the home has a clean, long lasting energy supply. Pakistan's "third-gender" people, or khawaja sehras as they identify, are often rejected by their families and can have no-one to look after them in old age. Third-gender people are 50 times more likely to be living with HIV than someone from the general population in Pakistan - it's believed almost 5% of the community are HIV-positive. Now, Guru Ashee, an activist and a respected member of the community has opened a retirement home providing dignity for residents in their final years. The retirement home has been eight years in the making. It opened in 2019 and provides accommodation, medication and food for 40 older third-gender people. It's part of a bigger project that will eventually incorporate a medical centre and additional housing. Ashee's retirement home allows third gender people to spend time together in a private space where they are accepted. Food and shelter are the starting point but the fact that older third-gender people can be themselves and feel valued is truly revolutionary. For more detail see: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-48707042 The BBC documentary 'Our World : The Best Pakstani Transgender Retirement Home' is available on the @BBCNews channel and on @BBCiplayer The retirement home has also been featured in @AttitudeMag @Dawn_News and other news outets All funds raised will be sent to Naz Male Health Alliance, Pakistan's primary LGBTQ NGO.

Feed South African Children During the Covid-19 Lockdown

Feed South African Children During the Covid-19 Lockdown

Feed South African Children During the Covid Lockdown-Dear Friends and Colleagues, -Even before the coronavirus arrived, many nations were already suffering from extreme hunger because of war and climate change. Now, while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are also on the brink of a hunger pandemic at the same time, where women and children are hit the hardest. -With the Covid-19 lockdown in South Africa, entering its 4th month now and about to hit its Covid peak, the Cape Flats community needs our support!! -I am raising funds to support Philisa Abafazi Bethu, a women’s and children’s rights NGO, in providing meals to children in the Cape Flats, an area of forced settlement of the apartheid regime, infested with gangsterism and drugs and a particularly tough neighborhood for kids to grow up in. They usually provide one meal to about 3000 children a day but are only able to provide to 1500-1700 children today due to a lack of funds. -I spoke with the director of the organization recently, Lucinda Evans, a human rights activist who comes from the community and leading a team of lockdown heroes, where she told me that they’re not getting any support from the South African government, so they rely fully on donations. -One child’s meal only costs them around EUR 0.5 (ZAR 10) so any small donation will go a long way in feeding some of these children.- -According to David Beasley, the United Nation’s World Food Program Executive Director, children are particularly vulnerable to hunger and malnutrition, which is why these organizations are prioritizing the kids. He also recently warned the UN Security Council that there’s a big risk that the Covid pandemic will soon be followed by a Hunger pandemic, where we could be facing multiple famines of biblical proportions within a short few months, especially in communities in countries across Africa and the Middle East, because the virus threatens further damage to the lives and livelihoods of people already put at risk by conflict... -There are so many communities across the globe that needs this type of support right now, if this particular one is not of interest to you, please try to find one that is, so we can support the less fortunate who do not have the privilege of having a salary and having access to the basic human necessities while we are fighting through this pandemic. If you're interested in finding something similar in a different context, please feel free to reach out and I can share with you how I located this NGO and how to manage the transfer of funds. -The actions we take today will save lives tomorrow... -Many thanks for your generous support and for sharing this with anyone you believe would be interested in contributing. -Warm Regards,Faadiya Darries

Cesta Fresca Providencia

Cesta Fresca Providencia

The Cesta Fresca (Fresh Basket) project aims to bring healthy food to the most vulnerable families in the Morro da Providência, the oldest in Brazil and backdrop to the famous Central do Brasil (yes, from the movie). Most members of this community work informal jobs and are now faced with a choice of either respecting social isolation or having nothing to put on the table. Access to healthy food should not be a privilege, and we want to show that fresh and unprocessed products can be an economically viable alternative to many non-perishable products that are already being distributed. The products are sourced from the Landless Rural Workers Movement, a network of activists defending agrarian reform and agroeocological practices (and LGBTQI rights! - they are that cool) throughout Brazil. They are bought at a fair price and delivered on the same day. The residents, previously mapped out through surveys, are called at pre-defined times at the distribution center to avoid crowds. This is also an occasion to distribute masks to those that may still need them.In the first edition, 100 families were reached, with the support of many community volunteers to organize the distribution. Beyond the short-term objective of ensuring food security during the pandemic, the project aims to connect the struggles of marginalised communities in the country and the city. In the long term, it also aims to transform cultural habits around food consumption in the favela and address the malnutrition and host of associated health problems which have made these communities especially vulnerable to Covid-19. The cost of a complete basket of fruits and vegetables is around US$ 4.00/€3.60. Content will vary every week according to the offer, but our goal is to perpetuate the scheme in the coming weeks, extending it as long as the need for social isolation continues, reaching as many families as possible. Please consider giving using the link in bio (if outside Brazil you need to do it from a computer and tick the “foreigner” box to be able to give without a fiscal number). Contents of the Fresh Basket for the first edition (Sunday, May 24): 1 kg of cassava1 kg sweet potato1 kg of yam1 dozen banana1 dozen oranges1 dozen lemons1 bunch of cabbage

The Skinner Family Fund / Little Princess Trust

The Skinner Family Fund / Little Princess Trust

Some of you reading may be aware that a good friend of mine Clare Skinner was diagnosed with Cervical cancer in January 2019. As you can all imagine a mum of 4 young children this was devistating for both Clare and her husband Doug. They stayed strong for their children and got through the treatment. They were then greeted with good news in August 2019 with the all clear. AMAZING, Right. If only that all clear stayed that way. Unfortunately Not, just before Christmas, Clare was suffering with a lot of pain in her back so after a few times of us all begging her to go and get checked out early just before Christmas they were told the cancer had come back. Christmas celebrations were a time for them to have the results of how much the cancer was back. It brings tears to my eye to sadly say its now terminal. I want Clare, Doug and their 4 beautiful children to be able to make some life long memories together as a family.. Some of you may know I have long hair that I absolutely love. OK I don't often do anything with it 9 times out of 10 it's normally in my mum bun style. I've been looking at the Princess Trust website about donations, they are crying out for longer haired donations and my hair fits into that category. Currently I have enough to actually send just over the 41 cm that they would like so if you haven't guessed already this is what I am going to be doing.. I would love to be able to raise enough money to send some off to a Cancer based Charity of Clares choice as well as some for Doug and Clare to put into a pot towards one time opportunity days with the children to make them life long lasting memories that they all truely deserve. Please please show Clare and her family your support even its it's just £1 they all add up I'd love to give her a massive pot of money for a trip to her favourite place to go with the kids and that's disney 🤞 would just like to say a huge thank you if you've spent the time to read and to be so kind and to have donated. SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL THE FEMALES YOU NOW HAVE YOUR SMEAR TEST DONE IT TAKES 5 MINS AND THE NURSE WOULD HAVE SEEN EVERY STYLE OF NUNNEY THEIR POSSIBLE IS.

Itsinkoudi, Pvadzima ne toumou

Itsinkoudi, Pvadzima ne toumou

Chers parents, familles, amis et compatriotes, La jeunesse d’Itsinkoudi Oichili se mobilise en ces temps difficiles pour aider leurs proches aux Comores. La situation d’insulaire de notre archipel, les soupçons de Covid 19 et le ramadan créent une situation d’urgence sanitaire. En effet le pays dépendant essentiellement de l’importation, la fermeture des frontières, des marchés publics, des agences de transfère monétaire plongent le pays dans une situation de précarité croissante. Il parait donc judicieux voire nécessaire d’apporter une aide alimentaire afin de soutenir financièrement les familles dans le besoin, notamment les personnes vulnérables pendant ce mois béni du Ramadan. Les personnes âgées représentent environ un tiers des personnes contaminées dans le monde et trois quarts des victimes du Covid 19. Cette cagnotte a pour but d’aider dans un premier temps nos Wa Baé et Cocos pendant la dernière quinzaine du mois Béni. L’aide concerne toute personne agée d’environ 60 ans, ceci sans distinction sociale ! L’aide se fera sous forme d’une distribution alimentaire (farine, sucre, huile entre autres) au seizième jour de jeûne. La cagnotte sera directement transférée sur le compte d’un site d’achat en ligne et la livraison se fera au village qui se chargera de la distribution par le biais de MERCI. L’action peut être élargie à plus de monde, sous réserve de fonds suffisants ! Nous sommes les seuls acteurs quant à l’aboutissement de ce projet ! La base du volontariat est obligatoire !! Cependant tous les jeunes itsinkoudiens résidants en France ou ailleurs, nous avons la possibilité de constitué un minimum de capital pour soutenir notre village. Pvadzima !!Tout seul on va plus vite mais ensemble nous allons plus loin !Itsinkoudi compte sur nous !Soyons Nombreux !

Support Masjid Quba

Support Masjid Quba

#SupportMasjidQuba Masjid Quba - URGENT APPEAL 🚨 !!️ **Assalamualaikum to all my Brothers, Sisters in Islam we have a pledge for all of you to please help the house of Allah** Support Our local Masjid Quba, based in Leicester, United Kingdom. It is in urgent need of fixing and renovating in order for the masjid to open after the current pandemic. During its closed period it has racked up a high amount of bills - as the masjid was closed from its community. The sadaqah and local fundraising was cut off as everyone is facing difficulties. During its empty period, we have had issues like broken windows, problems with the heating system and leaks from the roof. Masjid Quba is in need of financial help, a beautiful mosque established for many years which serves the local community through its many services. We could not believe the state of the Masjid in the heart of Leicester, it being the house of Allah, yet it seemed to lack love and community spirit. After visiting Masjid Quba in Leicester, we have taken it upon ourselves to help raise funds to have essential and emergency repair works done. Alhamdulillah we have already managed to get the lighting working but there is so much more to be done, by the will of Allah your donations will make a difference. The Prophet (Sallallau Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise" (Bukhari) The Masjid have been fully transparent with all donations collected and inshaAllah we can follow the repair project of an integral part of our community. Please don't forget, the Prophet (Sallallau Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Charity does not decrease wealth.” (Muslim) ESSENTIAL WORK REQUIRED: - Roof- Walls - Internal & External- Windows- Carpet- Ceilings & Lighting ‏جزاك الله خيرا ‏وبارك الله فيك

Help me raise €500 for two great causes by 6/11/20!

Help me raise €500 for two great causes by 6/11/20!

Hello friends and family! (FRENCH & ARABIC below)ENGHello friends and family!It's been a difficult year for most, hope everyone is doing okay. I've recently submitted my thesis and I'm due to defend my PhD on 06/11/20... So I have set a target, help me raise at least £500 by then! The money will go to two great causes... I'll be over the moon if you can help me reach the target (or exceed it)! A minimum of £250 to each cause can make a difference... Let me tell you a little about these 2 causes: 1. SAMS emergency response to Beirut explosion: The massive explosion that rocked Beirut last month left at least 200 people dead, injured over 6,000 and plunged 300,000 into homelessness virtually overnight. Several healthcare facilities were damaged in the blast, further exacerbating relief efforts at a time when Lebanon was already suffering under the strain of the COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented economic collapse. The SAMS foundation has already managed to achieve the following through donations:* Distribute medical supplies for hospitals and humanitarian kits for homeless families.* Partnered with INARA to secure a medical tent providing urgent care to survivors.* Distributed hygiene and sanitation kits and food parcels to individuals and families affected by the explosion.* Coordinated with 44 hospitals across the city to maximise their relief efforts.They rely on donations and still need more because this devastating explosion has also exacerbated the existing humanitarian needs of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable individuals, at a time when many were already finding it difficult to meet their daily needs for food, shelter, and healthcare.You can find out more about SAMS here: https://www.sams-usa.net/ 2. La Cantine Syrienne/ The Syrian Canteen: This is a Paris-based association and a brilliant project. La cantine Syrienne/ the Syrian Canteen is a non-profit initiative serving meals for free during lunchtimes in Montreuil, Paris... The volunteers of La Cantine Syrienne have managed to create a new place of conviviality where people gather together at large tables to share meals and lively discussions. Creating this space in Montreuil is a way to build bridges between people... You can read a little bit about this association here: https://www.helloasso.com/associations/la-cantine-syrienne-de-montreuil/collectes/soutenir-la-cantine-syrienne ...Essentially, La Cantine Syrienne are trying to reach a 10K goal, I would love to see this project succeed. FR Bonjour les amis et la famille ! L'année a été difficile pour la plupart, j'espère que tout le monde va bien.J'ai récemment soumis ma thèse et je dois défendre mon doctorat le 06/11/20...J'ai donc fixé un objectif, aidez-moi à récolter au moins 500 € d'ici là ! L'argent ira à deux grandes causes... Je serai aux anges si vous m'aidez à atteindre (ou à dépasser) l'objectif fixé !Un minimum de 250 € pour chaque cause peut faire la différence... Laissez-moi vous parler un peu de ces 2 causes :1. L'intervention d'urgence de la SAMS suite à l'explosion de Beyrouth : L'explosion massive qui a secoué Beyrouth le mois dernier a fait au moins 200 morts, plus de 6 000 blessés et a plongé 300 000 personnes dans le dénuement pratiquement du jour au lendemain. Plusieurs établissements de santé ont été endommagés par l'explosion, ce qui a encore exacerbé les efforts de secours à un moment où le Liban souffrait déjà de la souche de la pandémie COVID-19 et d'un effondrement économique sans précédent. La fondation SAMS a déjà réussi à obtenir les résultats suivants grâce à des dons :* Distribuer des fournitures médicales pour les hôpitaux et des kits humanitaires pour les familles sans abri.* Partenariat avec l'INARA pour sécuriser une tente médicale fournissant des soins urgents aux survivants.* Distribuer des kits d'hygiène et d'assainissement et des colis alimentaires aux personnes et aux familles touchées par l'explosion.Coordination avec 44 hôpitaux de la ville pour maximiser leurs efforts de secours. Ils dépendent des dons et ont encore besoin de plus car cette explosion dévastatrice a également exacerbé les besoins humanitaires existants de centaines de milliers d'individus vulnérables, à un moment où beaucoup avaient déjà du mal à satisfaire leurs besoins quotidiens en matière de nourriture, d'abris et de soins de santé. Vous pouvez en savoir plus sur SAMS à l'adresse suivante : https://www.sams-usa.net/ 2. La Cantine Syrienne/ The Syrian Canteen : Il s'agit d'une association basée à Paris et d'un projet brillant. La cantine syrienne est une initiative à but non lucratif qui sert gratuitement des repas pendant les heures de déjeuner à Montreuil, Paris... Les bénévoles de La Cantine Syrienne ont réussi à créer un nouveau lieu de convivialité où les gens se retrouvent autour de grandes tables pour partager des repas et des discussions animées. Créer cet espace à Montreuil est une façon de créer des ponts entre les gens... Vous pouvez lire un peu plus sur cette association ici : https://www.helloasso.com/associations/la-cantine-syrienne-de-montreuil/collectes/soutenir-la-cantine-syrienne ...En résumé, La Cantine Syrienne essaie d'atteindre un objectif de 10K, j'aimerais voir ce projet réussir.
