Help End the Suffering on our Borders!The pictures of the injustice and suffering on Europe's borders were too much for us to watch. United by our desire to do something to help the thousands of people abused as pawns in this political game, we decided to join forces and take action. We sent a first team (Eva Schade, Lorenz Böttcher and Natalie Gruber) on the ground to Edirne to assess the situation and decide on whether to call for the others to join. Unfortunately, we soon realised that a large scale civil response is not possible and thus decided to focus on sharing as much information as possible from the border in the hopes of getting the European governments to finally end this horror. Eva and Lorenz continue to support the refugees as much as possible - as long as police tolerates it - in cooperation with local individuals. That help consists mostly of purchasing products like plastic sheets, underwear, socks, medicine, food and water to distribute it to refugees. The rest of us is now focusing on raising funds to enable the purchase of more supplies and sharing the information from our contacts on the ground (our own team, other volunteers, journalists, and, most importantly, refugees themselves). Even though we all work voluntarily, we still rely on your financial support.Purchasing and distributing hundreds of plastic sheets and blankets, tons of medicine, foot, hygiene products and whatever else is needed the most every day costs money. As long as the situation is the same as now (you can read more about it on our Blog: https://www.josoor.net/ ), we will continue. If not, and not all the funds have been used by then, we prepared for the following scenarios: * Should Turkey clear the area, we would relocate to Istanbul or other parts of Turkey - wherever the refugees will be at afterwards. * Should the Turkish police - who has been harrassing us frequently - make it impossible for us to continue, we will hand over the donations to our local Turkish friend and colleague who will still be able to continue long after we are not anymore. * Should (against all odds) the situation suddenly improve severely within Turkey, we will hand over the funds to trustworthy partners on the Greek islands.

Second chance surgery for our voiceless daughter

Second chance surgery for our voiceless daughter

Dear CommunityWe need your help to take our daughter for hospitalization in Switzerland. She needs an urgent surgery. Amelia our daughter was born premature at the 28th week. She was diagnosed at the age of 3 months with larynx complication (laryngotracheal stenosis). At her 5th month she was placed a tracheotomy tube to help her breathing.November last year, she was admitted in CHUV - University Hospital in Lausanne - at the ORL Service with worldwide known Professor. It was our only hope the tube will be removed so she can finally breath and grow. Amelia went under a partial cricotracheal resection and anastomosis (PCTR) surgery and was eventually decannulated begin of December, and released from the Hospital. Without tracheotomy tube. First time we look at our daughter without breathing tube. We had to do heavy fundraising to cover the cost in our residence country Poland. Approximately 235'600 CHF (Swiss Francs) in total.For a month Amelia could breath alone. Unfortunately few days after returning home in Poland, she started having breathing issues again. She had to be taken to emergency at the Prokocim Hospital in Cracow to have the tracheotomy tube put back.She had a schedule this year, in August, for second surgery of same type. But it was cancelled. We did not manage to raise the fund for the required deposit (100'000 Swiss Francs) in time. We have hope to reach the deposit amount.Our daughter is exposed now every day to complication. This include breathing, eating issues and her general development delay. Now aged 4 she is voiceless as her vocals are not responding. The goal of her hospitalization is to have the tube removed so she can breath with natural ways. And hopefully be able to speak with proper rehabilitation programms.We need your help. Please share Amelia's story. Thank you in advance for your kind support.

Help Australia

Help Australia

To my backpackers friend, I've been watching the news for days now feeling absolutely helpless as I watch huge parts of Australia burning more and more every day. People are losing their homes, all their possessions and many still in danger. Millions of animals have died or are dying by suffocation, burned, trapped and all the while the precious landscape is horrendously burned to the ground and it's heart breaking. Many of us have been there, for some weeks, months and for a lucky few several years. We spent some of our best times whilst living there, met the most amazing people, shared the best experiences, travel and adventures. We took the most beautiful and unreal pictures, discovered amazing places, gorgeous beaches, colorful seascapes, marvelled at the wild life and all the wonderful creatures that have occupied this beautiful place. If every one of us gives 3 or 4 quid (price of a pint of beer) I believe we could make a difference. Share it to all your backpackers friends, and ask them to do the same with their ones. Thousands of us are flying there every year to live the dream. Let's give it back, in memory of all the moments we cherished, all the new friends we made, the love we shared for this beautiful country. I'm currently looking for an organisation to donate the money and support any rescue, relocation or restoration efforts. I'm open to any suggestions as well if you have any ideas or preferences you can lend. Share it with every backpacker you know and even with your family or friends. There is no minimum even the smallest donations could be useful! I deeply appreciate and thank you for taking the time to read this and giving any support you can give.

DAUPH'INTERNATIONAL YOUTH 2021

DAUPH'INTERNATIONAL YOUTH 2021

Bonjour et bienvenu à la cagnotte en ligne de la quatrième mission humanitaire de Dauph'International Youth!Dauph'International Youth est l'association humanitaire du campus londonien de l'Université Paris-Dauphine. Nous sommes un groupe de 20 élèves qui partagent des valeurs communes d'intégrité, de partage, et de volonté d'aider les autres.L'année passée nous avions prévu de partir dans un village au Vietnam, malheureusement cette mission n'a pas pu voir le jour à cause des conditions sanitaires actuelles. Ainsi cette année notre objectif serait d'aider un village au Maroc dans les montagnes de l'Atlas, grâce à l'assocation locale Elbassma. Notre projet serait d'apporter un soutien moral par des jeux avec les enfants et des cours d'anglais; mais aussi un soutien physique par la construction d'infrastructures sur place.Les enfants des villages de l'Altlas souffrent d'un manque profond d'accès à l'éducation. Ce problème est en parti dû au manque d'infrastructures scolaires dans les différents villages alentours. Ainsi, les enfants, dès leur plus jeune âge accompagnent leur parents travailler dans les cultures pour aider financièrement leurs familles et ne reçoivent pas l'éducation qui pourrait leur être indispensable. C'est pourquoi l'association Elbassma s'est lancée l'objectif de construire des écoles dans ces villages, et les projets qui ont déjà abouti les annéees passées ont été un grand succès.Pour prolonger ce succès, nous avons besoin de votre aide! Quelle que soit la somme, tout don serait d'une aide substantielle. Aidez nous à aider les autres! Vous pouvez suivre nos évènements tout au long de l'année sur notre page Facebook Dauph'International Youth ou bien sur notre compte Instagram @dauphinternationalyouth. Merci d'avance de votre soutien ! L'équipe DIY🌏🐬 Hello and welcome to Dauph'International Youth's 4th mission's money pot!!Dauph'International Youth is the Humanitarian society of Paris-Dauphine University's London campus. We are a team of 20 students who share common values of integrity, generosity and genuine wanting to help those in need.Last year we planned to go to a village in Vietnam, unfortunately this mission could not see the light of day due to the current sanitary conditions. This year our goal would be to help a village in Morocco in the Atlas Mountains, thanks to the local association Elbassma. Our interest would be to provide the local population with moral support through games with the children or English lessons; but also physical support by building infrastructure on site.Children in these villages suffer from a profound lack of access to education. This problem is partly due to the lack of school infrastructure in the various surrounding villages. Thus, children from an early age accompany their parents to work in the fields to financially support their families and do not receive the education that could be essential to them. This is why Elbassma association set out with the objective of building schools in these villages, and the projects which have already taken place in the past years have been great successes.To extend this success, we need your help! Any donation, whatever the amount, would be extremely helpful. Help us help others! You can follow our events all around the year on our Facebook page Dauph'International Youth or on our Instagram account @dauphinternationalyouth. Thank you so much for your support! The DIY Team🌏🐬
