We are looking to raise €20,000 to start the life saving cancer treatment in Germany for Dainora

We are raising money to help our good friend Dainora Berzina in her brave fight against cancer. Unfortunately, Dainora has a very aggressive form in triple negative breast cancer. She was diagnosed in 2016. Despite two years of chemotherapy, a masectomy and radiotherapy the cancer has now spread to her lungs, bones, liver and skin and became inflammatory. As of March, 2018 Doctors are claiming that her cancer is incurable. Dainora is not willing to accept this prognosis and we know that she can overcome this disease. Through investigating what options are available out there miracles do happen. One place that has a success rate higher than most is the Hallwang Clinic in Germany that offers next generation immunotherapy. Many cases of "miracles" have occurred and we want to give Dainora the best chance possible to beat this disease. This treatment, unfortunately, doesn't come cheap. That's why we have set up this page. We are looking to raise the €20,000 to get Dainora started on the treatment she needs to beat this. Time is also of the essence. Doctors have given Dainora 5 months to live. We refuse to accept this and there is plenty of fight left in Dainora. Let's give her the chance to beat this disease. Thank you for taking the time to read our page, any donations towards Dainoras treatment would be gratefully received by us. Family and Friends of Dainora

Peter Hofschröer & Barbara Hofschröer ('Grandma B')

Even if you cannot support this appeal financially, please share it with all who might be able to. Listen to Brian Gerrish and Alex Thomson present the Hofschröer case in full at: https://soundcloud.com/ukcolumn/despatches-hofschroer-13032018-1912 A version of that discussion with presentation of some images is at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x0ctbdNqTE  Update of 17 May 2018: Thanks to the continuing fantastic generosity of donors, the full amount of €3,600 has now also been raised to settle the bill of Dr Klaus Burtscher, a court psychiatrist who wrote a full refutation of Prof. Manfred Walzl's sectioning order which placed Peter Hofschröer in the Sigmund-Freud-Klinikum in Graz. Dr. Burtscher writes that Walzl cited erroneous literature and repeatedly went well beyond his professional limits in asserting that Peter represented a danger to society, and that the court order to section him is therefore unsound. Peter's lawyer (whose full bill donors have now paid) has submitted this as part of his appeal to the court to have Peter released. Funds continue to be necessary for: (a) any possible additional expenses incurred as the court case goes on;(b) hiring an English barrister to contest York Social Services' ongoing kidnap of Barbara Hofschröer ('Grandma B'). Thank you again, especially on Peter's behalf. We call him on his ward telephone number as often as we can, and he remains in good spirits and profoundly grateful for all your efforts for him "and thereby for tens of thousands of other victims of psychiatric abuses", as he rightly puts it.  Update of 10 May 2018: The whole of Peter's lawyer's fees (EUR 12,000 or GBP 10,600) have now been collected thanks to your fantastic generosity. The request has just been submitted to Leetchi.com to transfer this sum directly to the lawyer's Viennese bank account. Funds are still needed: Several thousand pounds to secure a good barrister to challenge, in the English courts, York Social Services' continuing kidnap of Barbara Hofschröer (Grandma B). Although no legal counsel has yet been identified for Barbara's case, the publicity of this appeal has already pressured York Social Services and the Sigmund-Freud-Klinikum in Graz, Austria, into allowing mother and son to have regular and unmolested phone calls from the captivity of their respective 'care' facilities, after years of Barbara's having been held incommunicado or with a social worker breathing down the phone line.  Original appeal text follows: Peter Hofschröer is incarcerated for life in a psychiatric facility in Graz, Austria, without ever having been examined by a mental health professional in that country. He has had his British house robbed from him, is facing the prospect of having his Austrian home stolen too, and when his case began to be raised pointedly in the House of Lords, he was fitted up with ludicrous and ever-changing accusations of possessing child pornography, the details of which accusations have never been forthcoming. In fact, the only mental health examination that Peter has ever had has been by Dr Elizabeth Gethins in Derby, who concluded, "I can find no evidence to suggest that Mr Hofschröer is suffering from a mental illness." Peter's crime seems to be knowing too much about paedophile-enabling networks in the public authorities in and around the city of York. His persecutors have followed him effortlessly across the borders of three European countries. Peter has been repeatedly let down by English lawyers, has no access to money, and now requests your funding to enable him to engage one of the finest and most conscientious advocates in Austria who is able to take on this case, through to the end of a court challenge of Peter's patently unlawful mental health sectioning, for €11,000 (about USD 13,500 or just under £10,000 sterling). Secondly, he requests funding for a legal challenge of the secret Court of Protection's obvious failures to do the job they were set up to do by protecting the intere

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Two important great books about antinatalism have already been released, but, unless you speak French or German, you might never get to read them. The good news is that you can help out this fundraiser to get them translated into English, so these two books can be read by an international audience, as they deserve.  We’re launching this fundraiser in hope that antinatalists see the value in getting these two books translated. Any amount of money, even small amounts, are welcome to help us to get to the fundraiser goal. If you don’t have much financial resources, you can also help by spreading the word about this fundraiser to anyone you think might be interested.  The fundraiser goal is 10.000 euros, which is roughly about 11000 dollars. All money will go into hiring someone to translate the book. If the fundraiser doesn’t reach its full goal, any given money will still go into translating as much as possible.  You can read more about the two books in the description below.   The Art of Guillotining Procreators : an Anti-natalist Manifesto (L’ART DE GUILLOTINER LES PROCRÉATEURS : MANIFESTE ANTI-NATALISTE) Released: 2006 By Théophile de Giraud  «Published in 2006 (same year as Benatar's famous «Better Never to Have Been») and written in French, this book is one of the few to be entirely dedicated to antinatalism, developed as a system. Spiced with black humour, it methodically dismantles most of the classical pronatalist arguments and shows the vices hidden behind the supposed virtues of bringing a child into the world. Its chapters cover subjects as the right to sue one’s parents in justice if one feels uncomfortable about having been born ; mandatory parenting classes in schools to prevent child abuse, mistreatment or neglect ; strike of the wombs as a political way of action ; and feminism as the key to overcome the phallocratic fertility obsession. Ecologically concerned, it adresses the overpopulation problem, pleading for a non-violent reduction of global human population to 100 millions of people. On the whole, this essay tries to demonstrate that having children is incompatible with ethics, and that adoption is the only moral way to build a family. This book also contains many antinatalist thoughts from various reknown authors throughout the ages and countries, so constituting an anthology of quotes against procreation.» Review, summary and short extracts here from Francois Tremblay’s blog «The Prime Directive» Theophiles book is currently out of print in french, but can be bought used on Amazon «ANTINATALISM. A Manual.» (German title: Antinatalismus. Ein Handbuch, 736 pages).Released: 2017 By Karim Akerma This book on ANTINATALISM is designed as a manual from A-Z. It pursues the ethical purpose of making readers willing to procreate change their mind. Readers already critical towards procreation will be corroborated in their antinatalist attitude. In order to propagate non-propagation the book presents a series of new reflections and neologisms on antinatalism. At the same time the manual makes use of a wealth of arguments and statements on natality from thousands of years. Even though some of these arguments and statements may belong, as it were, only to the outskirts of antinatalism, they are still proof of the fact that man – as a cultural being – has always been able to take a critical stance against the bio-social radical of procreation. In as much as it advocates universal antinatalism the book also takes into account other sentient beings, thus claiming: It is almost always better not to act in such a way that a sentient being begins to exist. This is where humanistic antinatalism and ethical vegetarianism meet.  While the original German edition comprises some 735 pages the English translation is set to present a condensed version of about 250 pages. The English edition will focus on systematic elaboration of the subject matter rather than on historical exemplification. The german edition can be bought hereKari

Noor Medical Field Testing

Noor Medical Field Testing

Noor Medical seeks to improve humanity's access to equitable healthcareNo one should die because of  improperly sterilized medical equipment. We believe in the universal right to equitable health care delivered in a sustainable manner. Clinics in remote areas often do not have the necessary access to electricity to sterilize their instruments. Nurses frequently have to travel long distances to sterilize their medical equipment properly in major hospitals with a more stable electricity supply. Sometimes, however, it is still not possible to sterilize the equipment in these hospitals and they have to either use less efficient sterilization methods such as boiling water or to operate without sterilizing the instruments at all. Noor Medical Information Video featuring Dr. Ndilta from the Koyom Hospital in Chad Noor Medical’s goal is to provide effective sterilization solutions to remote areas, reduce postoperative  infections and increase the quality of life of nurses, doctors and their patients through an easy to use device. Noor Medical supports endogenous structures through the local production of hybrid autoclaves with locally sourced materials. We design our autoclaves to be durable, affordable and modular, so that they can be easily repaired and are easy to operate. The diversity of energy inputs ensures that our product can be operated in a variety of contexts and provide the critical sterilization of medical equipment for rural clinics at high risk of grid-disruption or with no electricity at all. Guided by a sustainable mindset, Noor Medical empowers healthcare through light while considering the social, economic and environmental aspects of our operations. Goals of field testing:During field testing, Noor Medical will test prototype usability, robustness, and sterilization effectiveness utlizing biological indicators within the intended operating context of our devices. To that end, Noor Medical has secured Memorandums of Understandings (MOUs) from two clinic networks in Chad represented by the Adventist Health International and the Deutsches Institut für Ärztliche Mission e. V. (Difäm). Our devices have passed through a series of technical testing rounds and it is now time to bring them to the clinics we plan to serve.  How will the money aid our field testing? The graph below displays the financial distribution of the planned crowdfunding goal of €25,000.Example costs within the aforementioned categories:* Production: Equipment and machinery upgrades for improved boiler unit assembly; Costs related to a more in depth supply chain analysis.* Material Costs: Expenditures for materials required for production. * Material Transport: Transport costs for components required for import and transport of prototypes to field test locations. * Travel Costs: Expenditures required for traveling to field testing locations. Includes living expenses while in the field. * Incidentals: Contingency costs related to travel and device testing. * Administrative: Legal and tax related expenses required for company registeration.Noor Medical strives to be fully transparent during the field testing phase. We are happy to provide a more detailed financial report of our activities to interested investors and supporters as we move into our next phase of development.  Noor Medical Vision For additional information:Please see our extended information video: https://youtu.be/bo8E5GH6l_s Or, visit www.noor-med.com for updates and to learn more about our team!

Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice

Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice

ENGLISH BELOW Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice Je m’apelle Tarcice, je suis née le 26 Avril 1977,  je travaille à mi-temps dans une entreprise privée et l’autre moitié du temps je le consacre dans mes activités sportives et au bénévolat. Marraine d’une association qui défend les femmes atteintes du cancer, j'aime passer mon temps pour des causes humaines  car donner une part de votre personne aux autres est le plus grand bonheur pour moi et pour ces gens. J’ai également une petite particularité : Je suis handicapée moteur depuis l'âge de 2 ans et je me déplace en fauteuil roulant manuel et électrique ; c'est le petit plus que le vie m'a offerte et j'en suis ravie . Mon handicap n’a jamais été un frein dans ma vie. C’est grâce à lui que je suis devenue déterminée et toujours ambitieuse, il m’a appris à me battre pour obtenir ce que je veux, à surmonter tous les obstacles et à ne jamais baisser les bras. Cependant, tous mes déplacements me prennent deux fois plus de temps que pour une personne valide.  En fauteuil roulant, chaque trajet devient un parcours du combattant: Je prends les transports quotidiennement pour aller travailler mais la planification et les imprévus compliquent énormément mes déplacements.Par exemple, je dois souvent attendre le bus suivant car la rampe d'accès du précédent est en panne; je dois parfois me rendre à une station de métro plus lointaine car  les ascenseurs y sont régulièrement en panne; et cela , qu'il pleuve qu'il vente ou qu'il neige. Il arrive que le réseau de transport en commun des handicapés "TLV" soit indisponible. Ou il m’est déjà arrivé qu’ils "m’oublient" dans la planification des trajets. De plus, TLV optimise ses trajets en transportant plusieurs personnes à la fois: rendant le trajet deux fois plus longs pour moi. Tout ceci est un stress et une pression quotidienne et c'est très épuisant. C’est pourquoi j’ai décidé de passer mon permis de l’année passée conduire pour faciliter mon quotidien. Seulement, à cause de ma maladie, je ne peux pas conduire un véhicule “normal”. Le prix du véhicule spécialisé est de 43 500€. Si je fais appel à vous aujourd’hui c’est qu’il m’est impossible de payer véhicule toute seule! J’ai déjà réussi à réunir la somme de 18 500€ mais il manque tout de même 25 000€. Chaque don quel qu'il soit fait la différence ! Alors n’hésitez pas à m’accompagner et explosons ensemble ce compteur!Vous en remerciant du fond du cœur,Tarcice ESSON An adapted vehicle for Tarcice My name is Tarcice, i'm born the 26th of April 1977, i work part-time in a private company and i spend the rest of my time doing sport and volunteering. I'm part of an association that defend women with cancer; i like spend my time for human cause because give a part of myself to others is the greatest happiness for me and for these people.I have also a little feature: i'm disabled moter since i'm 2 years old and i move with a wheelchair; that's the little plus that life gave me and i'm happy with it. However, all my moves in public transports take twice time than a valid person: buses and subways aren't always equipped for people in wheelchair like me.That's why i've decided to pass the driving licence but i can't drive a "normal" car. That's the reason why i created this page to raise funds in order to help me to buy an adapted car for my disability. I already raise 18 500€ (21 500$ US) but the car cost 43 500€ (50 700$ US) so i need 25 000€ (29 000$US) more to buy it. Each gift, whatever the gift, can do the difference! So don't hesitate to follow and help me!Thanking you from the bottom of my heart!Tarcice ESSON

Big Family Orphanage

Big Family Orphanage

Hello everyone!  Our trip in Vietnam brought us to a small homestay in Kon Tum held by a Vietnamese woman Teresa and her husband Thin. They have an orphanage a few kilometers from the homestay which is what they are dedicating their life to.Teresa was herself put in an orphanage at the age of 8 when her mother past away. She got married and had four kids but reached out to 35 other kids during these years and gave them a home which they called "Big Family Orphanage".Our volunteering there was one of the best experiences of our trip. We got to take care of 35 children everyday teaching them English, playing all kinds of games, starting arts and crafts activity but also singing and dancing! But most of the work needed there includes a lot of construction in the orphanage as well as in the homestay which is still in progress. The homestay is crucial to them so that they can have a more consistent income allowing them to buy more clothes and food for the children. However they are lacking so much funding between the orphanage and its daily cost. As volunteers, we all decided to start this money pot to help this Big family even after we leave as we now feel we are part of it. Many of our family and friends have already contributed to this project during our stay here and made a big difference (see progress below). We wanted to set up a plan for you to see what each of your donation is contributing to and how far the project has gone with your help. 1) Most urging projects · Making a sustainable well providing running water at the orphanage = 2,120 euros· Fixing the road to the orphanage = 3,600 euros 2) Daily expenses · School fees = 20 euros/month for each kindergarden and 100 euros/ year for older children· Food = 30 euros/day· Clothes = 100 euros/year 3) Homestay · Finishing yard at the homestay· Homestay furniture to be prepared to welcome guests So far, your generous contributions have allowed us to contribute to buy new clothes for the children and to pay for most of the well! If you want to be part of this project with us even a few euros/dollars will be greatly appreciated so please don't hesitate to donate even the smallest amounts on this money pot :)Each donation you make will be managed by the volunteer team to help them invest it the most efficiently possible and support their hard work. If you also want more information about tbe big family orphanage and its creators you can visit our webpage: http://bigfamilyorphanage.wordpress.com Thank you! The Big Family Orphanage and its volunteers

Aider Franck a retrouver Giovanni

Aider Franck a retrouver Giovanni

Il y a bientot 3 ans, Franck rentrant d'une longue journée de travail découvrait sa maison vide, sa femme était partie avec leur enfant de 14 mois à 750 km, elle était retournée chez ses parents à Marseille avec l'aide de son père et son frère, par surprise et sans aucun préavis ! Franck était dévasté. Ils s'étaient rencontrés à Paris quand ils travaillaient dans l'industrie musicale, lui en tant que régisseur dans différents musique-hall et pour différents groupes et elle en tant que chanteuse qui essayait de se faire une place dans le monde du spectacle, elle a trouvé un producteur qui leur proposa de quitter paris pour lui produire un album, mais ce « pseudo producteur » les laissa tomber par la suite, mais comme une revanche sur la vie le merveilleux Giovanni est venu au monde et la vie retrouvait tout son sens!  Franck avait 44 ans et elle en avait 36. Franck retrouva vite un emploi, sa belle-mère lui mettait la pression pour que l'accouchement se passe à Marseille mais Franck ne se laissa pas abattre et redoublait d'énergie pour travailler un maximum, il a grandi dans un environnement bien différent de sa femme Marseillaise. Né dans les montagnes du Jura d'une famille d'agriculteurs. La vie n'a jamais été facile pour lui mais c'est l'homme le plus fort que je n'ai jamais rencontré. il a été élevé avec toutes les valeurs fondamentales que nous devrions tous avoir : Honnêteté, respect, générosité et persévérance.  Imaginez rentrer chez vous, une maison vide, plus de voiture et votre bébé enlevé à 7h de route... Elle n'avouera jamais qu'elle ne supportait pas une vie stable avec enfant en bas âge nécessitant une stabilité, c'était l'opposé de tout ce qu'elle avait vécu jusque-là, chacun et libre de ses choix mais pas pour enlever un bébé comme ça. Franck a achevé son contrat de travail pour déménager à Marseille au bout de 4 mois, il a trouvé un appartement, des boulots ici et là comme saisonniers dans les vignobles. Pas assez pour s'assurer une vie confortable loin de chez lui de ses amis et sa famille, le divorce acté Il obtint une garde de son fils tous les week-ends, mais son ex-femme aidée de son avocate payée grâce à l'aide sociale fera changer la garde aux dépens de Franck... puis un jour elle refusa de remettre Giovanni à son père et cela dure depuis plus d'un an maintenant, elle l'éloigne de son père... Giovanni et Franck avaient une relation très spéciale faite d'amour et de plaisirs simples à la campagne.   Espérant que Franck baisserait les bras elle a essayé de rassembler toutes sortes de dossiers contre lui, en jouant toutes sortes de tours, essayant de le rendre fou faisant de sa vie un enfer.Franck se doit de voir son fils régulièrement car il a l'autorité parentale ! Mais elle en a décidé autrement, il a pu avoir Giovanni durant 2 jours seulement grâce à sa soeur et ses parents qui ont fait le voyage à Marseille la mère de Giovanni ne pouvant pas refuser ce contact avec ses grands-parents paternels, Franck avait peur d'avoir perdu certains liens son Giovanni si petit encore., mais il était heureux comme un pinçon dans les bras de son papa ! un vrai bol d'air frais pour tous, ce qui a redonner un peu d'espoir. Toute cette affaire est maintenant devant un tribunal. Malheureusement, Franck n'a pas les moyens de se payer un avocat et doit payer une pension alimentaire. Les deux parents sont sous enquête sociale mais en France les procédures sont longues et le temps passe... j'espère que le juge réalisera à quel point cette situation est terrible pour Giovanni et son papa.L'amour de Franck pour son fils est authentique, c'est un père incroyable et Giovanni aime son père, sa tante et ses grands-parents qu'il n'a jamais l'occasion de voir. L'objectif de cette campagne est d'aider Franck a se payer un avocat. Aider Franck va également soulager sa famille, tout spécialement sa mère et sa soeur qui n'ont pas passé une bonne nuit depuis des mois.

Heaven Hill Academy in Nepal

Heaven Hill Academy in Nepal

Welcome to Heaven Hill Academy in Nepal The goal of this charity is to raise money for the school and the community in Gaunshahar, Nepal. To improve the quality of the teaching abilities as well as making it possible for all children in the area to get a free education. I will be traveling around Asia doing some volunteer work in the different countries and after my first volunteer work in Sri Lanka in December, I will travel to Nepal. I will be staying there for 3 months helping out at the Heaven Hill Academy, which is located in the small village of Gaunshahar. (about 6-10 hours from Kathmandu). During my stay in Nepal, I will be writing a blog describing the daily life in the small village of Gaunshahar and to account for the how the donations are being spent. Please visit https://vogns3n.wordpress.com/ And of course 100% of the donations received will go to the community! Please see below for further details about the project. Heaven Hill Academy was founded in 2014 by Shamser Thapa, a teacher and principal of Guanshahar village in Nepal. Shamser’s lifelong ambition is to offer better educational opportunities to local children. His vision was to build an independent school that would not discriminate between caste nor gender. Instead, it would provide quality education to ALL children whose families could not afford the financial burden of school fees, notebooks, course books, and uniforms.I have met many of these incredible children during our time in Nepal. They are smart as whips! And boy can they sing.... With a strong emphasis on learning English, this school is changing lives, giving its students a fighting chance to rise up out of poverty. The work Shamser has done is remarkable, growing the Academy from 40 to over 90 students in the last three years. The success of Heaven Hill is truly a team effort, including members of the community and with help from international volunteers who have donated their time, labour and money. Presently, there are 6 classrooms and a new library (built 2017). However, with new grades being added each year, Shamser and the children need your help to expand and maintain the school. Currently in the process of building a kitchen and a classroom for the 4th grade. The new classroom needs to be ready before April 15, 2018, which is the date of the new school year. Donations to Heaven Hill Academy are needed to help build their next classrooms, which has a total approximate cost of $3,000 USD. The school also needs financial support to cover the monthly cost of each student and their required supplies. Shamser himself also feels the financial burden for continuing to pay the six teachers from Guanshahar that dedicate their time and energy to educating these youngsters. The school receives no financial support from the Government of Nepal.  Every child deserves an education and the children of Gaunshahar are no different. Your donations will go directly towards providing these local children with an opportunity to learn.Through the generosity of fundraising campaigns such as this one, the school has been able to support a number of particularly underprivileged children, including 2 orphaned students and 3 students with Down Syndrome. Your help would make a world of difference to these wonderful children’s lives.Should you also be interested in sponsoring one of these kids, a commitment of $15 dollars per month will cover the cost for school supplies, uniforms, lunches and work books.For a closer look at how your donations will make a difference to the children of Heaven Hill Academy, please visit their website athttp://www.heavenhillacademynepal.org/ Thank you for your support!
