L'HEURE VIDE HUMANITAIRE - Venezuelan refugees

While travelling through South America by car we crossed the border of Ecuador and Colombia in Rumichaca. There we saw so many Venezuelan refugees in such great misery without the help they needed, that we decided to stay. We started this NGO, and have been working together succesfully with local and international organizations to give them the help they need. Please visit us at: www.lheurevidehumanitaire.orgInstagram: L'HEURE VIDE humanitaire L’HEURE VIDE humanitaire is a small network-based NGO focused on short-term projects in emergency situations involving refugee issues worldwide. Our approach is to assist existing humanitarian aid structures and local associations and to supplement them when their opportunities to act are limited or restraint.Our aim is not to direct or to implement.We are there to help. This approach ensures that we can focus on what is needed on the ground and in the now to fill the gaps in aid left by big organizational structures and complex international policy. As a small and nimble organization, we are not limited by bureaucracy or massive overhead.This allows us to concentrate our efforts where we excel: organizing the available resources in a hands-on, creative way to produce tangible results quickly and effectively. Sofie Sleumer and Michel MulderFoundersEn voyageant à travers l’Amérique du Sud en voiture, nous avons traversé la frontière de l’Équateur et de la Colombie à Rumichaca.

FurloughedFoodiesLondon

We are Furloughed Foodies London. We’re on a mission to help feed the NHS💙 Why we exist:We are a group of people that have recently been furloughed or let go from our employment due to the current global crisis. Instead of bingeing on Netflix over the next few months while we’re all stuck at home, we wanted to help our #NHSheroes and the community. After speaking to some NHS workers about how we could help we realised two things: 1. doctors are receiving lots of cakes and unhealthy snacks 🍰, which is not great brain food for those on the front line. What they need and lack is healthy, hearty meals 🥘. 2. Canteens in most hospitals shut at 5 pm and staff working in the Covid-19 wards aren’t allowed in other areas of the hospital. This means staff really struggle for options when it comes to evening meals. Want to help? You can...💰 Donate money (on this page) 👨‍🍳 Cook food🚗 Deliver foodPlease register on our website

The ARC Centre

Raising money to help The ARC Centre through Covid-19.We are a small animal education in Selsdon, Croydon. Due to Covid-19 we have decided that as of 16:15 on March 18th we are closing our doors. We are incredibly concerened and worried about shutting The ARC, but due to new government guidelines we feel it is within the best interest of all our Rangers. Not only this, but as we are such a small centre, we are worried about the risk of Rangers Louise and Iain falling ill at the same time. We need to make sure that we are able to continue looking after the animals throughout this and we are therefore looking to minimise risk of exposure. We are also concerned about the risk to our primates. There is no evidence currently to suggest that covid-19 can spread to animals, but obviously primates would be at the highest risk. Due to this we have already quarantined our rainforest biome. Aside from the risk of infection, we are greatly concerned about the effect shutting is going to have on our business. We have only been open 18months and are such a new business, with very high outgoings. From animal feeds and vet bills, to electricity bills and general animal supplies, we are worried about getting through this pandemic and still being able to open on the other side. We know that this is a truly terrifying time for everyone and we completely understand that not everyone will be in a position to help financially, but if anyone can help during this time of crisis we would be incredibly grateful.

Support for Aelfin Michel

Support for Aelfin Michel

Aelfin Michel - Critical Condition - Hua Hin, ThailandSadly, on December 31st, Aelfin tragically crashed on a motorbike causing him to suffer severe head and face trauma.  Aelfin is currently in ICU under 24 hours medical care and constant support. When Aelfin arrived in emergency he required immediate surgery to remove bleeding on the brain and had part of his skull removed, which will need to be replaced with titanium.  His jaw and teeth were severely smashed which will require surgery, as well as other serious facial and head injuries.   Unfortunately this is a very critical situation.  Due to the severity of his head injuries he has had many operations to date and requires many more, plus 24 hours support and months (if not years) of therapy.  The latter is not yet known as we are currently taking it day by day, knowing that each day is a miracle. Aelfin is a fighter and at every set back he is fighting to stay here with us.  For those that know him will know his determination and stubbornness.  This trait is shining through in his fight for his life.  This gives us hope. Holding onto this hope and knowing that Aelfin will keep on fighting, there is a long and very expensive battle ahead of us. He requires many more surgeries, and unfortunately at this stage, we are unsure of the extent of damage and rehabilitation required.   We urgently ask all of you to help support Aelfin and his mother, Emma, with the extensive ongoing medical costs and medical care that Aelfin needs now and for the coming months.  ALL of the funds donated will be used to cover Aelfin's hospital bills, medical and rehabiliation expenses. We would like to express our gratitude for your kind donations to the SUPPORT AELFIN FUND. Best regards,Aelfin's support team

A trip for a better world

A trip for a better world

(version française plus bas) Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!My name is Mickael, I am 40 years old, French, and September 27, 2019 is going to be the first day of my one-year trip around the world. Throughout my journey, I will seek to connect, discover and volunteer with people who work on topics that matter to me: education, the environment and music. Education is, in my opinion, the foundation of development. Today's children will be the actors of tomorrow. Reading and writing is not a privilege but a right, regardless of the country.The environment is threatened. Despite the neurosis, there are local initiatives that must be helped to protect the flora and fauna.Music brings people together, promotes self-assertion and local cultures, and serves as a springboard for other artistic talents or passions. This personal project has been well prepared and I have self-financed from savings made over past months. I created this money pot to raise money and donate it throughout the trip to local initiatives. For every €10 paid in this pot, €9 will be directly distributed to local initiatives to support their project in either areas (education, environment, music). The remaining euro will help me personally during these missions. How will the money be used? Here are some examples that will become clearer over the next few months: Financial contribution towards the purchase of supplies, material, either for schools, or cultural centers, or animal health shelter, etc.  You will be able to follow my progress on instagram and facebook @whereismike2020 and I will keep you informed as well by email every time money is used. For those who only wish to support me personally on this travel project, a pot is available here: http://www.leetchi.com/c/whereismike2020 Give however much you wantAll payments are 100% secure Thanks in advance for your participation!   Mike  Bonjour à tous et bienvenue sur cette cagnotte en ligne ! Je m’appelle Mickaël, j’ai 40 ans, français, et le 27 septembre 2019 sera le 1er jour d'un tour du monde en solo qui va durer 1 an.   Tout au long de mon voyage, je vais chercher à entrer en contact, découvrir et aider des personnes (bénévolat) qui oeuvrent pour des sujets qui m’importent :  l’éducation, l’environnement et la musique. L’éducation est, selon moi, la base pour aider au développement. Les enfants d’aujourd’hui seront les acteurs de demain. Lire et écrire n’est pas un privilège mais un droit, quel que soit le pays. L’environnement est menacé. Malgré la névrose, il existe des initiatives locales qu’il faut aider pour protéger la faune et la flore. La musique rassemble les gens, favorise l’affirmation de soi et des cultures locales, et sert de tremplin à tout autres talents ou passions artistiques.  Ce projet personnel a été longuement préparé et je l’ai auto financé grace à des économies réalisées depuis plusieurs mois.J’ai créé cette cagnotte pour collecter de l’argent et le reverser tout au long du voyage à des initiatives locales liées à l’éducation, l’environnement et la musique.Pour 10€ versés dans cette cagnotte, 9€ seront directement donnés à des initiatives locales, 1€ pour m’aider personnellement pendant ces missions. Comment sera utilisée la cagnotte ? Voici quelques exemples qui se préciseront au fur et à mesure ces prochains mois :Participation financière à l’achat de fournitures, de matériel pour une école, un centre d’accueil pour des activités culturelles, un centre de prise en charge d’animaux malades, etc... Vous pourrez suivre mes avancées sur instagram et facebook: whereismike2020 et je vous tiendrai informé au fur et à mesure par email à chaque fois qu’une partie de la cagnotte sera utilisée. Pour ceux qui souhaitent uniquement me soutenir pour ce voyage, une cagnotte est à disposition ici: http://www.leetchi.com/c/whereismike2020 Donne ce que tu veuxTous les paiements sont 100% sécurisés Merci d'avance pour ta participation !  Mike

Plant an olive tree in Palestine

Plant an olive tree in Palestine

Welcome to our campaign - Ahlan wa Sahlan :)  We are fundraising to plant more than 1000 olive trees in Palestine and need your help to make this possible. Olive trees are symbolic of Palestinian identity and attachment to their land, resistance and resilience. For the last forty years, over a million olive trees and hundreds of thousands of fruit trees have been destroyed by the Israeli occupation. "Security reasons" is the justification given by the Israeli’s for the uprooting of trees, while in reality Palestinians' olive trees are destroyed for the expansion of Israeli settlements and their bypass roads, the building of the Israel's "Apartheid wall", and as a result of Israeli settlers' violence in the occupied West Bank. This campaign will target small–scale farmers, low income families, female-headed families, and those disadvantaged from land confiscation and uprooted trees. We have a trusted team of volunteers in Palestine who take care of all the work on ground and provide regular updates on the trees planted with photos which we will share with all our supporters. The planting will be done from the end of November to March 2020.  One olive tree costs just £6 and it will help by:- Providing food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years- Saving Palestinian land from Israeli theft- Assisting Palestinians, for whom this remains the main source of livelihood  Olive trees carry more than an economic significance in the lives of Palestinians. They are not just like any other trees, they are symbolic of Palestinians’ attachment to their land. Because the trees are draught-resistant and grow under poor soil conditions, they represent Palestinian resistance and resilience. The fact that olive trees live and bear fruit for thousands of years is parallel to Palestinian history and continuity on the land. Palestinians are proud of their olive trees; they take care of them with care and appreciation. Palestine has some of the world’s oldest olive trees, dating back to 4,000 years. Some families have trees that have been passed down to them for generations and the olive harvest season in October bears a socio-cultural meaning where families come together to harvest olive trees bearing in mind that their forefathers and mothers had tended to the same trees several years ago. What better way of keeping the Palestinian struggle alive than by planting an olive tree on the blessed land of Palestine? Baha + Shazad + Zeyn

VAO BUNGALOW, an ecotourism project to support an isolated community in Vanuatu

VAO BUNGALOW, an ecotourism project to support an isolated community in Vanuatu

VAO BUNGALOW : un micro-projet écotouristique pour une communauté isolée du Vanuatu.Scroll down for english version Bienvenue sur notre cagnotte solidaire ! Notre projet a pour but de soutenir le développement de notre petite communauté du village de Vao, au Vanuatu, via la création d’une structure d’accueil de voyageurs étrangers comprenant bungalow traditionnel, lieu de restauration locale, et activités touristiques authentiques. Le Vanuatu est un pays insulaire du Pacifique composé de 83 îles où plus d’une centaine de langues vernaculaires sont quotidiennement parlées, et d’une population généreuse et souriante de presque 300.000 habitants, riche d’une culture coutumière ancestrale. Plus de 80% de la population vit en zone rurale très peu développée et en quasi-totale autonomie. Les autres 20% se sont exilés en ville où le salaire mensuel minimum est de 250 euros et où le prix de la vie est extrêmement élevé, engendrant : exposition forte à la société de consommation, précarité, perte de repères et d’identité...Mais le Vanuatu est surtout le pays le plus touché au monde par les catastrophes naturelles, (cyclones, activité volcanique et séismes récurrents chaque année) et où les effets visibles du changement climatique tels que l’érosion, la montée des eaux ou la salinisation de l’eau douce par exemple, contraignent les populations à adapter leurs modes de vie et augmentent leur dépendance aux aides internationales...Notre communauté de Vao vit de manière traditionnelle au nord-est de l’île de Malekula, et représente plus d’une centaine de personnes, dont 40% sont des enfants de moins de 15 ans. Nous sommes trois porteurs pour ce projet et nous représentons la communauté, mais chaque personne de Vao y est impliquée. Violaine, fille du chef du clan et initiatrice du projet, est diplômée en management des structures touristiques à l’université de Port Vila, la capitale ; Pierre, son mari, est ingénieur agronome et directeur d’un bureau d’études qui œuvre pour le développement de l’agriculture biologique et durable ; et Cécilia, adoptée coutumièrement par la communauté, est animatrice en environnement et santé.L’objectif de ce projet est de créer une micro-économie locale permettant de subvenir aux besoins essentiels des familles de Vao: paiement des frais de scolarité des enfants ainsi que des dépenses de santé, et assumer le coût des quelques matériaux et vivres ne pouvant être produits localement.Les frais de scolarité représentent la dépense majoritaire de la population du Vanuatu, et l’éducation des générations futures est l’enjeu principal de ce pays magnifique. En proie au changement climatique et aux modifications des modes de vie entraînés par la mondialisation, le pays subit progressivement pertes de repères culturels, accumulation des déchets plastiques et détérioration de la santé publique.De plus, les évolutions climatiques rapides forcent les populations du Vanuatu auparavant autonomes en nourriture et matériaux de construction à recourir à des solutions extérieures et onéreuses : l’utilisation de matériaux plus résistants pour faire face à des cyclones de plus en plus violents (béton, ferraillage) ; et l’achat de vivres basiques (riz, farine, eau) pour survivre à des sécheresses récurrentes de plus de 6 mois ou des évènements climatiques désastreux. Le tourisme est l’activité principale du Vanuatu et se développe rapidement. Cependant il est peu développé sur l’île de Malekula, malgré deux aéroports domestiques et une infrastructure routière en état convenable. Pour cause, le manque de structures d’accueil et de restauration, que les locaux n’ont pas les moyens de financer. Pourtant cette île ne manque pas d’atouts : plage de sable blanc, fonds marin préservés, nature verdoyante, culture et savoir faire traditionnel...Le tourisme engendre des revenus pour les communautés et permet la transmission de savoirs ancestraux et coutumiers que les touristes viennent observer. Mais le tourisme mal encadré peu aussi provoquer des détériorations des lieux et modes de vie. Ainsi s'est pensé notre projet : à l’instar de demander des financements pour aider au développement de notre communauté, nous voulons assurer une source de revenus encourageant des pratiques locales et ancestrales telles que la cuisine traditionnelle, les danses et chants coutumiers, ou encore les sculptures et vanneries en matériaux naturels. Cette source de revenus sera alors utilisée par les familles pour leurs besoins de base.La construction de cette structure vise à servir d’exemple et de point de départ pour des projets de la sorte tout autour du pays. Nous avons alors créé cette cagnotte solidaire pour vous demander de nous aider à lever des fonds afin que ce projet devienne réalisable et puisse garantir la qualité et le mode de vie des populations du Vanuatu, et développer la résilience de ces populations aux aléas climatiques. Un grand merci pour votre aide et votre soutien dans ce projet éco-responsable à vocation solidaire ! English version VAO BUNGALOW : An ecotourism project for an isolated community in Vanuatu Welcome to our fundraising!Our project aims to support and help the development of our community of Vao, a small village in Vanuatu, through implementing an ecotourism structure to welcome foreign travellers including a traditional bungalow, a local restaurant, and several authentic tourist activities. Vanuatu is a country situated in the Pacific and composed of 83 islands where more than a hundred of indigenous languages are used every day, and where live a generous and smiling population of nearly 300.000 habitants, strong of an ancestral custom culture. More than 80% of the population lives in rural areas, very few developed and almost independent. Other 20% moved to towns, where a monthly salary is about 250 Euros and where the cost of living is extremely high, causing vulnerability to goods consumption, poorness, and loss of cultural identity.Therefore, Vanuatu is the country the most exposed to natural disasters in the world (cyclones, volcanic activity and earthquakes every year) and where visible effects of climate change such as erosion, sea rising, or fresh water access for example. This forces populations to adapt their lifestyle and increase dependency to international aids.Our community of Vao lives in a traditional way at the north-east of Malekula island, and represent over one hundred people, including over 40% of children under 15 years old.We are three project managers to represent this community, but every man and woman Vao is concerned about the project. Violaine, daughter of the chief of the tribe, has a diploma in Management of Tourism units from the university of Port Vila; Pierre, her husband, is an agronomic engineer and chairman of a consultant office working to develop organic and sustainable agriculture; and Cecilia, who the community adopted through custom, is a consultant in environment and health. The goal of this project is to create local micro economy allowing families of Vao to provide their essentials needs: school fees for the children, health costs, and the few materials and supplies than cannot be produced locally.School fees are the main outcome of the population of Vanuatu, and education of future generation is the most important issue of this beautiful country. In the grip of climate change and modification of lifestyle caused by globalisation, the country gradually suffer from the loss of cultural marks, accumulation of plastic waste and degradation of public health.Moreover, strong climate change forces the population of Vanuatu who has always been independent with food and building materials to look for solutions from outside and then depend on money: use of more resistant and sustainable materials to face cyclones getting stronger and stronger (cement, iron framework); and purchase of basic needs like rice, flour or water to survive to regular droughts over six months or climate disasters.Tourism is the main income of Vanuatu and tourist activities is developing fast. However, tourism has grown small in Malekula island, despite of two domestic airports and good road infrastructure. Reason is the lack of accommodations to welcome tourists because the locals don’t have the money to build them. However this island has plenty attractive features: white sand beaches, conserved underwater reefs, green and protected nature, cultural and traditional know-how. Tourism brings income to local communities and allows transmission of ancestral and custom knowledge to the visitors who come to witness it. But tourism which is badly managed can end up with a deterioration of landscapes and lifestyles. And so comes our project: instead of asking funds to support development of our community, we chose to insure a long-term income to support local and ancestral know-how like traditional cooking, custom dances, or natural carving and weaving for example. The families will then use this income to cover their basics needs (and stay living on their lands).Finally, building and managing this ecotourism structure will aim to lead example and can be used as a starting point to other similar projects around the country.This is why we have made this supporting fundraising: to ask you to help us gathering money, to allow this project to become real and help population of Vanuatu to keep their quality of living and lifestyle. On a long term basis, we can also develop resilience to face climate hazards in this fragile environment. Thanks to everyone for your help to build this ecotourism project and to support our community !

Help fund a cochlear implant surgery for 18 month old baby

Help fund a cochlear implant surgery for 18 month old baby

Raising a funding campaign as I came across the story of Marc Alexander, 18 month baby boy born in Haiti and diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). Long story short, Haiti does not have the proper medical infrastructure and the government support to help this little boy get a cochlear implant surgery that would give him the ability to hear and speak. The longer he waits to get the implant, the more irreversible speech and development delay will occur.  This would cost USD 30,000 including a trip abroad to get the surgery done (I myself have done research for my daughter and no kidding, it really cost that much). I spoke to his mother who didn't know what to do and who to turn to, and I felt the need to help them.  As a French national and a Hong Kong resident , and as a mother of a 6 months deaf baby myself, my family is fortunate enough to have access to the best-in-class health support, excellent medical care and infrastructure ...and this is all (or almost) FREE!! We tend to forget how lucky we are. This little boy does not share our luck.Please take some time to read his story, DONATE and SHARE THIS POST to help him get access to a cochlear implant surgery, this amazing, life changing technology that will give him back the gift of hearing and speech.Carine Story of Marc Alexandre: Hello everyone. We are Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty, parents of 18 months old Marc-Alexandre. We live Haiti, one of the most under-developed country in the world.We suspected the deafness of our son when he was 2 months and a half, as he was not reacting to sound. Due to lack of medical resources and infrastructure in Haiti, we were unable to obtain a diagnosis right away. When Marc-Alexandre turned 12 months old, we had been recommended to have him checked out in Republic Dominican. Without a second of hesitation, we took out all of our savings and bought a flight for the 3 of us to go meet an ENT specialist there. The results were devastating: Marc-Alexandre was diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). We were not sure what to do or where to turn. We do not know if he would ever say, "I love you Mommy and Daddy." We have prayed for a happy, productive life for Marc-Alexander, and we want him to go to school and someday graduate from university to pursue a career and a life that he chooses.The ENT was adamant that our son needed cochlear implants; Implanting Marc will give him access to sound which will provide him with the only chance of age-appropriate speech and language development. This will provide him the opportunity to a better education and independent employment as an adult in the future. If not implanted, it may lead to permanent changes in the auditory cortex in the brain which may make it impossible to benefit from a cochlear implant or any form of hearing restoration surgery in the future.  The cochlear implant bypasses the damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. The signals are generated by the implant and are sent passed the auditory nerve to the brain where the signals are recognised as sounds.  However, the cochlear implants will cost USD$30,000 as we do not have insurance and there is no government social subsidy or help of any kind. We are raising money to pay for medical expenses including surgery, cochlear implant device, and a trip abroad for the surgery.Marc is growing up and as his parents; we know we have to do something. The only future for our son is to hear with cochlear implants. Just like everyone else, we want to give him the best possible future there is.Life is so precious and this innocent boy who deserves the right to live normally. In advance, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your incredible moral and financial support. Thank you for helping us change the life of our child. Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty

Una Rosa nel Cuore

Una Rosa nel Cuore

Cari,Ricevete questa mia lettera perchè ho fiducia in voi, e voi in me, e so di poter aprire il mio cuore e raccontarvi quanto sto per scrivere. Il 19 giugno 2002, una Rosa si è spezzata cadendo dalla scala che conduce ai binari della stazione Roma Nomentana. Rosa, nostra madre, ha lasciato un vuoto in me e nei miei fratelli, aveva 59 anni. Vi potrei raccontare di questa Rosa, di una donna gentile, umile ma forte, che ha cresciuto da sola i suoi tre figli in una vita di impegno e lavoro. Rosa, come tutte le mamme, aveva dei progetti. Sognava di aiutare una figlia, Giancarla, in difficoltà, con tre bambini e un marito violento da cui si stava separando. Desiderava assistere alla Laurea della sua seconda figlia, Barbara. Sperava un futuro più certo per Cesare , che non aveva voluto studiare.Chissà quale è stato il suo ultimo pensiero, forse noi figli? i nipotini? e poi quella scala su cui si è spenta la sua vita e ha portato via ogni sogno. Quel giorno, 19 giugno 2002, Rosa stava tornando a casa dal lavoro.Il ricordo di una telefonata da parte di una vicina che aveva saputo da altri pendolari e che racconta "solo" di una caduta in stazione, sulle scale metalliche di Roma Nomentana.Una delle viti fuoriusciva troppo dal rivestimento metallico della scala. Proprio su quel gradino, accanto alla vite, venne ritrovata la scarpa di mia madre Rosa, lei, il suo corpo, qualche gradino più sotto. Una corsa in ambulanza già esanime. Una corsa verso l'ospedale, il Sandro Pertini, la speranza, poi il nulla. Al nostro arrivo quella meravigliosa Rosa si era spenta. Neppure un ultimo saluto. Solo dolore, vuoto, senso di impotenza. Il sopralluogo dei carabinieri rilevò quella vite che non avrebbe dovuto fuoriuscire, evidenza di una non idonea manutenzione e scarsa cura nella gestione, affinché non vi siano pericoli per i viaggiatori. Oggi. Dopo 17 anni, un altro dolore sta colpendo noi tre figli e orfani di Rosa. La giustizia, i tribunali, la burocrazia, non guardano ai dolori e ai sogni infranti. In tribunale i morti non hanno voce. Ed è così che oggi, secondo una sentenza che non comprendo, dovremmo essere noi tre figli di Rosa a risarcire per quell'incidente. Vi chiedo dunque con urgenza un aiuto. Per noi è un nuovo momento di sconforto, di dolore e di grande senso di impotenza. Molti di voi già lo sanno, ci conosciamo da molto, lavoro da quando avevo 16 anni, per pagare gli studi e aiutare mia madre. Quando ho iniziato a lavorare stabilmente, dopo la laurea, sono stata sempre un sostegno per i miei fratelli e i miei nipoti. Non è stato semplice soprattutto perchè non potevo contare su nessun altro. La somma da risarcire è importante ed ho deciso di chiedere supporto a Voi, a chi mi conosce. Dobbiamo risarcire le spese legali per un valore di 15.000€ (inizialmente erano 29.000€ la Società ha accettato di limitare alle effettive spese legali e rinunciare ai 'maggiori oneri') Da parte mia, ho chiesto alla Società che la somma resa venga poi data in donazione, non possono rinunciare a chiederci il dovuto ma possono decidere poi di effettuare una donazione pari ai 15.000€ da risarcire. Vorrei che tutto questo si trasformasse in un aiuto per una Casa Famiglia, con madri in difficoltà (proprio come la mia Rosa). In questo modo il dolore e il ricordo di nostra madre diverrebbe un atto di amore e l'inizio per un altro sogno  Condivido con Voi che se avessi avuto mai un risarcimento per la nostra Rosa spezzata avrei realizzato un progetto, Villa Rosa, una casa famiglia in onore di nostra madre. Ciascuno può fare la differenza. Voi potete fare la differenza aiutandomi con questa mia raccolta fondi. GRAZIE DI CUORE! Barbara_____________________________Dear all, you are receiving this letter because I trust you, and you trust me, and I know I can open my heart and share with you what I am going to write. On June 19, 2002, a Rose has been cut by falling from a poorly maintained staircase leading to the tracks of the Roma Nomentana railways station. Rose, our mother, left a void in me and my siblings, she was 59 years old. I could tell you about this Rose, a kind, humble but strong woman, who raised her three children on her own throughout a life of commitment and work. Rose, like all mothers, had plans. She dreamed of helping a daughter, Giancarla, in difficulty, with three children and a violent husband from whom she was separating. She wanted to attend the graduation of his second daughter, Barbara. She hoped for a more certain future for Cesare, who had decided to quit school. Who knows what her last thought was, maybe she thought of us, her children? Of her grandchildren? And then that staircase, that took from her her life and all her dreams. Today, after 17 years, another struggle is affecting us three children, Rose's orphans. Justice, courts, bureaucracy, do not care about sorrow and broken dreams. In a trial the departed have no voice. And so it happens that today, according to a sentence that I do not understand, it's us, Rose's three children, who have to pay for that accident. I therefore ask you for your help. For us it is a new moment of discouragement, sorrow, grief, and we feel neglected and powerless. On my side, I asked the involved company we have to financially compensate to eventually donate this sum to a charity organization. This sum amounts to € 15,000, that they reclaim to cover the legal expenses they had due to the trial we children lost against them. I wish all this would turn into a support to a Family Home helping mothers in difficulty (just like my Rosa). In this way the grief and memory of our mother would become an act of love and the beginning of another dream. But before getting to this point, we children have to collect the 15.000€ that the company is claiming from us. Be sure that if we had won the trial and if we had received a financial compensation for our broken Rose, this is what we would have done: starting a project, 'Villa Rosa', a family home in honor of our mother. Each of you can make a difference. You can make a difference by helping me and my family with this fundraiser. Thank you!BARBARA

Ça roule pour Lulu

Ça roule pour Lulu

L’association Ça roule pour Lulu a vu le jour en novembre 2016 à Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois en Charente-Maritime. L’objectif est de lever des fonds afin d’améliorer le quotidien de Lucas, un petit garçon handicapé de 9 ans. Lucas, surnommé affectueusement Lulu par ses proches, est un petit garçon pas comme les autres. Il est né grand prématuré à seulement 28 semaines. Il pesait 1,2 kg et mesurait 37 cm. Cette grande prématurité a provoqué des lésions cérébrales qui ont touché la zone de psychomotricité et a entraîné une hémiplégie droite. Mais les soucis de Lucas ne se sont pas arrêtés là. Quelques jours après sa naissance, les médecins lui ont diagnostiqué une maladie génétique rénale rare, un diabète insipide néphrogénique.Depuis Lucas a bien grandi et ses besoins également. Il faut notamment penser à aménager sa maison pour qu’il puisse circuler avec son fauteuil roulant. En projet, l’extension de sa chambre avec une douche et un w.-c. adapté à son handicap (les travaux devraient commencer au printemps 2019 grâce à l'argent récolté depuis la création de l'association). Il faudra aussi rendre accessible les abords de la maison et adapter un véhicule à Lucas. Ces travaux sont estimés à 70 000 €, un coût trop élevé pour la famille aux revenus modestes et les aides sont peu nombreuses.C’est pourquoi la famille a décidé de créer l’association afin de lever des fonds pour améliorer le quotidien de Lucas. De nombreuses manifestations sont à venir en 2020 (soirée théâtre, marché fermier et artisanal, 4e édition de la randonnée semi nocturne...) pour augmenter la cagnotte.Merci à vous, qui avez fait un don ou qui avez donné de votre temps pour améliorer la vie de Lucas.Pour en savoir plus sur l'association, l'histoire de Lucas, ou encore sur le planning de nos prochaines manifestations, rendez-vous sur notre site Internet http://caroulepourlulu.e-monsite.com/ ou sur notre page Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Ça-roule-pour-Lulu-115857582219000/
