Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can donate to a cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you! The Stories of those who died in the Great War from the Parish of Fulflood & Weeke, Winchester  November 11, 2018 will mark the centenary of the Armistice that finally silenced the guns in the Great War. Up and down the country, in what will undoubtedly be deeply poignant commemorative services, communities will remember the hundreds of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in a conflict that is still etched on our national psyche. Fulflood and Weeke in Winchester will be no exception. The churches of St. Paul and St. Matthew contain memorials to no fewer than 91 men from the parish who went off to war never to return and they will be remembered at services in November. Although these men died more than a century ago their stories are only now being retold thanks to the efforts of a local research group. Over the past three years the researchers have worked to build up a picture of the lives of the parish’s war dead – where they lived and worked, where they went to school, their families, and, of course, where they fought and died. The stories we have glimpsed have been moving and fascinating. Young men from the streets of Fulflood, Weeke and elsewhere in Winchester went to fight and die not only on the Western Front but also at Gallipoli, Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and even Russia. Winchester, of course, was a garrison town so many joined those regiments based here – the Hampshire Regiment the Rifle Brigade and the King’s Royal Rifle Corps. Others served in the Royal Navy and the fledgling air force. Men from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and East Africa with family connections in the parish, volunteered to fight for the “Mother Country” and their names are remembered on the memorials. One of these men had been on Captain Scott’s final expedition to Antarctica in 1912 and was to die in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Many schools where the men went to are still here. Several went as infants to Western School, then in Elm Rd, and onto St. Thomas School in Mews Lane, which was eventually amalgamated into Kings’ School. There, they are remembered on the St. Thomas School Memorial Board. Some went onto Peter Symond’s Grammar School, now the Sixth Form College, and they too have a memorial board. Some went to prep schools and onto public schools such as Winchester College where they are also remembered. Some schools they attended no longer exist, for example, St. Peter’s in Chesil Street - but their records do. The time has now come to make their stories accessible to all interested people and aspects of this will take money! * The most expensive item will be to publish a book of their stories which we aim to have available by Remembrance Sunday, on the 11th November this year.* We also plan to have portable permanent exhibition boards which can be displayed in:* St. Mathew’s and St. Paul’s, the churches of the parish of Fulflood & Weeke.* Local schools* Hampshire Record Office & the Discovery Centre* Community halls* Relevant military museums & local military bases* Creation of a website with all the information on it which will have an element of interrogation for example, do any of the men live in your street?* We hope further that:* Teaching resources will be created in liaison with local schools. Many current pupils in Winchester, especially at Western, Westgate and Peter Symmond's, may live in houses that were once the homes of these men.* A programme of Public Lectures & Guided Tours will happen.Long-term, we also hope to tell the stories of all the men who went to fight in World Wars I & II but that is not part of the current project. We do hope that you find this a worthwhile cause to contribute to.You can further help if you think you are related to any of the men and even have relevant photographs.

Hilfe für Jamile

Hilfe für Jamile

Liebe Kollegen, Freunde und alle die uns helfen wollen Jamile zu unterstützen, Jamile  ist vor einigen Jahren von Kolumbien allein mit 2 Kindern nach Deutschland gekommen. Ihr drittes Kind ist in Kolumbien gebliebenK um zu studieren. Jamile musste nun leider ein ein sehr schweres Schicksal erleben: Kolumbien ist das Land der Drogen und Korruption.Ihre 20 jährige Tochter, die in Kolumbien geblieben ist, kam an den falschen Partner ,der mit Drogen in Kontakt geraten ist und nicht bezahlen konnte. Er bekam dadurch massive Probleme mit den Geldeintreibern und verkaufte!!! seine Freundin, die Tochter von JamileJamile bekam einen Anruf von der Polizei aus Kolumbien und reiste sofort dorthin. Eine Woche dauerte es bis sie ihre Tochter gefunden hat.Das kostete nicht nur viel Kraft sondern auch richtig viel Geld.Ohne Geld läuft in Kolumbien gar nichts, keine Polizei, keine Freunde und nicht mal die Familie haben ihr bei der Suche geholfen. Geld ist das einzige Mittel um Informationen sehr teuer zu erkaufen.Auf diversen Wegen, die sich an der Grenze der Legalität befanden, hat sie ihre Tochter gesucht und gefunden. Diese hat eine Woche in der Hölle verbracht. Sie wurde unter Drogen gesetzt, in ein Verlies eingesperrt und täglich verkauft. Gott Sei Dank gab es ein Happy End:Durch den Einsatz ihrer Mama ist sie frei bekommen und der Mann der sie verkaufte sitzt im Gefängnis. Jamile holte ihre Tochter nach Deutschland wo sie medizinisch und psychologisch betreut wird.  Auch das kostet eine Menge GeldFazit:Jamile hat nur 30.000€ Schulden und ist auf Hilfe angewiesen. Es hat sie sehr viel Überwindung gekostet an die Öffentlichkeit zu gehen und über das Passierte zu sprechen. Jamile würde nie von allein nach Hilfe fragen doch wir möchten die Augen nicht vor ihrem Schicksal verschließen und ihr helfen  Vielen Dank

Humans for Equalism Project

Humans for Equalism Project

Inequality still remains a global difficulty despite of substantial national and international measures that have been taken towards inequality itself. Founded in March 2016 - Humans for Equalism is a movement, a foundation in which we seek to inform the members of our societies, of the gender and racial inequality amongst us all and how we as individuals and as a whole may eradicate the discrimination. Such discrimination is against the Equality Act 2010 and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Act 1948 - which states: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and in rights”.  We seek to eliminate hatred and establish equal human rights regardless of the factors and elements that define society's and individual's differences. We would also like to influence society's perception towards equality by being involved in global changes as well as inform the members of our societies about the bad and evil that is amongst us all, in order to establish freedom of equality, realisation and embrace equal rights. Racial inequality is a disparity in opportunity and treatment that occurs as a result of someone's race. Race is not a biological or genetic fact, but a socially constructed myth. Classifications are assigned to people on the basis of often arbitrary differences like the shape of the nose, the degree of pigmentation in the skin, and the texture of the hair. Those individuals are receiving brutal treatment despite being no more nor no less different than yourself.  Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals based on their gender. It arises from differences in socially constructed gender roles of expressive and instrumental which Talcott Parsons highlights. The degree and causes of gender inequality vary throughout the world; we are advocate's of equal gender rights, along with equal racial rights in order to eliminate hatred and establish global consensus.  "I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word." - Martin Luther King Jr.​ A global change must occur. We should use our powers not to create conditions of oppression that lead to violence, but conditions of freedom that lead to world peace and consensus.​Humans for Equalism desires to eliminate hatred by preventing antagonism, cruelty and brutal violent treatment between culture's and society's, but unfortunately, we cannot do such acts alone. Humans for Equalism prides themselves upon influencing individuals in order to create a more peaceful environment within our society's and culture's. We ask for your help - Please donate.

AR RAHMAN FOUNDATION

AR RAHMAN FOUNDATION

This money goes to all the Muslim Countries suffering in this world.It is absolutely central to the Muslim identity to feel care and compassion for one’s fellow human beings. Several ahadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) refer to this deep affection and brotherhood: “you will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”; “the believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever”. If a Muslim feels the pain of his or her fellow human being, and wishes the same comfort and good life for others which he wishes for himself – it is a natural reaction to give in charity, to ease this suffering.As well as the indisputable benefits for those receiving charity, Islam also highlights the spiritual need of those with wealth to give some of it away selflessly. It helps Muslims to remember that they are humble before Allah, and that every blessing they have in this life comes from Him – therefore they must not hoard it, but recognise that He wishes for us to be compassionate and share our provisions with our brothers and sisters in humanity. Indeed, the Qur’an warns against any feelings of pride, or reminding others of the charity one has given: “you who believe, do not cancel out your charitable deeds with reminders and hurtful words” (2:262). It also reminds us that there is a “recognised right, for the needy and deprived” over our wealth (70:24-5), so by giving, a Muslim is fulfilling a duty to those in need, preventing him or her from becoming proud of their own generosity.In the Qur’an, Allah describes those who prevent the supporting of orphans and the feeding of the poor as “those who reject the faith” (107:1-3), while emphasising that charity should be given in “prosperity or adversity” (3:134), without fear for one’s wealth, and having faith that a sincere act of giving can only bring abundant reward to the giver: “those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains” (2:261). Indeed, one of the five central pillars of Islam is zakat, or almsgiving – the obligatory tax due on an adult Muslim’s wealth every year, dedicated to supporting the poor and needy – making charity an undeniable cornerstone of the faith.
