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.

Bonjour, Suite à la publication d'une vidéo tout sauf intelligente d'un jeune se moquant d'un sans abris, nous souhaiterions aider celui-ci à hauteur de ce que chacun veut et peut.Il s'agit là de rendre un peu justice face à des actes odieux envers les plus démunis. Les riches gagnent souvent ... Aidons les plus faibles .L'argent sera évidemment remis en main propre à cette personne sans abris sur la commune de Saint- Jean-De-Luz. (ou il aurait été aperçu, nous sommes sûres de rien et allons faire ce qu'il faut pour s'en assurer) Si malheureusement nous n'arrivons pas à retrouver ce monsieur l'argent sera remis à une association. Inutile de revenir sur la personne qui a fait ça, le but n'est pas de l'écraser mais de rendre en quelque sorte justice à cet homme.Au vu de l'ampleur de la vidéo je pense qu'il a bien compris et que certaines menaces ont été plus absurdes et graves que cette publication.
Bonjour à tous, J'ai décidé de créer cette cagnote pour aider un ami qui vit une période difficile. En effet, un de ses proches est en train de mourrir, et lui et sa famille n'ont pas les capacités financières suffisantes pour pouvoir payer les obsèques à venir. Pour ceux qui le connaissent, sachez qu'il n'est pas au courant de la création de cette cagnotte et je vous remercierai donc de ne pas lui en parler. Je pense que vous comprendrez qu'il n'est pas forcément facile d'accepter d'être aidé dans ce genre de situation... Mon ami et ses proches ont lancé des démarches auprès d'associations pour avoir des aides financières, mais la procédure prendra du temps et la somme qu'ils percevront ne couvrira qu'une partie du coût des obsèques (coût minimum de 3000 euros). Je fais donc appel à votre générosité, ainsi qu'à votre solidarité. Mon ami en a bien besoin en ces temps difficiles, où il ne pourra surement pas rendre hommage comme il le souhaite à son défunt (cause : COVID-19). Je tiens à préciser qu'il n'y a pas de contribution innutile (que ce soit 5 euros, 10....), et je tiens également à tous vous remercier par avance du soutien financier dont vous ferez preuve. SACHEZ QUE LES DONS SONT ANONYMES. Merci à vous tous.
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!Given the unusual circumstances due to the Corona crisis, the Egyptian government decided that this year there won't be public food supplies to poor people during the month of Ramadan. Usually, there are massive distributions of food in key crowded places in Cairo. This measure is part of the set of measures (such as the daily curfew from 8pm to 6am) taken by the government in order to limit the spread of the virus in the country. Yet, many Egyptian families depend on or at least need this help in food supply from the government and particularly during Ramadan. Ramadan is a period of gathering, sharing and joy. However this year it might be different especially for people living in poor conditions, which are exacerbated by the current crisis. Thus, this initiative project aims at raising funds in order to buy basic food products. The money collected will serve to buy the following items: Rice, Foul, Oil, Foul, Cheese, Jam, Pasta, Juice, Sugar, Tomato paste. All these will be gathered in a box and each family will receive one box. We estimate the price of one of these boxes at 400LE (approximately 25 euros). We previously targeted some families in Cairo we could benefit from the initiative. I will personnally be in charge of the food shopping and then the distribution of it. The people who donated will be rigorously informed of the process, step by step. We are aware of the fact that these troubled times affect everyone all around the world. But if you have the means to help, and are willing to, please do and share the initiative around you. From Cairo, with love !Sarah.
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!! -In partnership with the Philisa Abafazi Bethu, a women’s and children’s rights NGO, I am raising funds to support them 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

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

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.
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 !
Hello everyone & welcome to this fundraiser!Baleswar and Jyoti are friends of mine in Bodhgaya, Bihar in Northern India. I have known them since they were children of 14 and 10 (now they are grandparents):They are community workers from the dalit commnuity in the area, and so they understand from the inside how hard are all aspects of life for people at the bottom of the vast Indian pecking order. You will have heard about the terrible plight of migrant day labourers across India, stranded overnight without food or transport by the COVID lockdown that was imposed by the Indian Government.at a only few hours notice To read more about it see Arundhati Roy's brilliant recent article here. NGOs in India have stepped in to try to help people to return home (see May Guardian ). Jyoti and Baleswar are helping to supply food for families who depended on the wages sent home by those migrant workers, and who now have no income. WIth a relatively small sum, my friends put together these bags of basic supplies: 1. 5kg flour2. 5kg rice3. 1litre oil4. 2kg potatos5. 2pcs soap for hand wash6. 1kg salt and distributed them to the poorest families of migrant workers in the area. This is immediate practical help from people who know what is needed most and who can organise and deliver it directly. Every pound in this pot will make more food distribution possible. SO much more than you could buy with it here. Thank you.Caroline To help more rural communities in other parts of India too, see this solidarity appeal from Action Vill India Leetchi.com is straightforward and transparent.

#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
Hello! My name is Martina, I am a student and I desperately need your help! I hate asking for money, but I find myself in a terrible financial situation. I am a student, and I usually have a job during my school year. While I had a job that helped me pay my rent, the shop I worked in closed down, and the money I had was barely enough to cover 2 months of rent! Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I was unable to find a new job that would have secured the last months I have left to pay on my tenant's agreement, and now as my parents cannot help me anymore (money is tight for them too), I find myself in a terrible situation, not being able to cover my last months of rent. This is why I find myself on here, appealing to the good heart of people around the world. I repeat, I hate asking for money, and I know that there is people who deserve this more than I do, but please, I need your help right now. I normally am the one that donates for the wellbeing of others, knowing that if I found myself in their situation I would not mind some help. All I need is 600€ that would help me to cover my charges, and be sure to not be thrown away from my apartment. I would love to thank you all in advance for your generosity and help, I know that if there is a God up there, they
As Salaamu Alaikum wa’Rehmatullahi wa’Barakatuhu (peace and mercy and blessings be upon you) Humble, modest and loving, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was known for his generosity. As ‘the most generous of all the people...’ (Bukhari). Emphasising the importance of charity, the Prophet (saw) said: ‘Generosity is near to Allah, near to Paradise, near to the people, and far from the Hellfire...’ (Tirmidhi) Please help me in raising funds to support the poor families in Karachi, Pakistan who are struggling during post COVID-19 situations. Due to the lockdown imposed by the provincial government, people who are either daily wagers or aim for "kasb-e-Halal" while roaming on the streets on daily basis are severely impacted. Especially those that have only single person to look after amid the most affected families. My aim is to support at least 80 aggrieved families targeting to raise £1,000 in total. To support each family for up to a month or two, we aim to raise Rs. 2,500 (~£12.50) per ration cart. You may support by donating as many carts to support the number of families you wish. I’m starting from myself by donating £50 (taking responsibility of 4 families). Here’re the options for contribution: • 1 x cart (to support single family) ~ £12.50• 2 x carts (to support two families) ~ £25• 4 x carts (to support 4 families) ~ £50 May Allah SWT accept our charity and raise our ranks hereafter - Aameen.

Hi guys,welcome to Covid-19 Solidariedade. As some of you may know, I have been living in one of Rio de Janeiro's favela for the past few months. The situation here with Covid-19 is pretty rough, with people not being able to buy primary necessities like water and food. There are lots of people living in the streets and with the government advise to stay home, the homlesses don't get much help from the empty streets. I would love to get lots of food and babies necessities for the people that need it the most here in the favela and the homeless.

Please help the community of Zanzibar with the plastic pollution. Your kind donations will provide jobs for those in the village to make ecobricks (a sustainable method of packing single use plastic into bottles). You are able to make a difference today; to those living in Zanzibar, your donations will help us accomplish our goals:* To provide a sustainable method to clear the plastic pollution on the island * To provide an income to those living in poverty * To provide English language lessons to the community Please read on to see how you can help! When I saw the devastating amount of plastic on the island and the hardship the local community face, I knew there must be a way to link the two. I then created Zecobricks, a non profit NGO. I recruited a team of local like-minded volunteers and we started to collect plastic bottles from hotels as well as plastic from the local shops and schools to build ecobricks. Ecobricks are made from single use plastic and is a sustainable way to reuse the plastic that is otherwise polluting the beaches and local environment. Many countries such as Thailand and Indonesia, have started this initative making furniture, walls and houses. With the ecobricks we make we plan to build an after school club for the children in the village to learn English (I am a primary school teacher on site in Zanzibar). We want to provide jobs for those struggling in employment by recruiting them to make ecobricks. Your donations will provide a basic income for those who are unable to support their children. Not only will this provide job opportunities and an after school club, but will also prove to the community of Zanzibar that ecobricks are easy to make and a useful building tool. Once this project is grown and known to the community, we hope individuals can be responsible for their plastic waste by making their own ecobricks and eco-constructions and sell these on to make a living. Spreading awareness of plastic pollution is a huge part of what we do at Zecobricks. Right now we teach in the Government schools and community areas about the hazards of burning plastic and littering in both English and Swahili but we need to do more! This non-profit NGO is still at its infancy phase but I strive, with your help, to turn it into a success, where the local community can earn a living and tourist volunteers can join the initiative. My passion and compassion for others enables me to speak from the heart and my drive allows me to work relentlessly for something I believe in.Due to 8 months of volunteering, i have a lack of funds and therefore your support will enable this to happen! Help us help the community of Zanzibar who have no voice.Help the environment. Help the children to learn English to help their future.
