500 miles PKU

500 miles PKU

You've heard the one about walking 500 miles, well in 2017 I will be running 500 miles and hopefully more, including the Barcelona marathon in March, to raise funds for The National Society for Phenylketonuria (NSPKU) that help families coping with children diagnosed with PKU.PKU is a rare genetic condition that causes an amino acid called phenylalanine to build up in the body. Our bodies normally break down protein in foods like meat and fish into amino acids, which are the "building blocks" of protein. These amino acids are then used to make our own proteins.Any amino acids that aren't needed are broken down further and removed from the body. People with PKU can't break down the amino acid phenylalanine, which then builds up in the blood and brain. In short it means that people with PKU have to have a very restricted diet with very few "exchanges" of protein. That means no meat, fish, bread, dairy products and a host of other daily food items we take for granted.My nephew Christy (pictured) was diagnosed days after his birth with PKU. Thankfully, he is a happy and healthy boy thanks to the family support network around him that know about and can help him deal with the condition as he grows older.Funds raised through this project will go helping families that aren't so fortunate and aiding research into advancements in how to treat the condition.Thank you so much to anyone who can donate anything. I will be thinking of you on the roads and treadmills for the next 12 months.Kieran

Roberta's Recovery

Roberta's Recovery

Help support Roberta's recovery!In February my fiancée Roberta suffered a brain haemorrhage from a burst aneurysm, 4 months before our wedding. She was taken to a local hospital in her home town where they operated to stop the bleeding. She was then transferred to a hospital in Rome where they slowly brought her out of an induced coma. For a few days things were looking very positive; Roberta was able to confirm that she could understand those around her and was able to mouth words. Unfortunately, a week later there was a complication and Roberta suffered an ischaemic stroke, damaging a large part of the left side of her brain. She remained in a coma for some weeks. Doctors at the time said that she may not be able to wake from the coma but Roberta is strong and managed to wake from the coma. Although alert, as yet, she has not yet found a way to communicate and has significant movement issues. It is hoped Roberta can shortly be transferred to a specialist rehabilitation clinic. We do not know what the future holds for Roberta but with her strength and passion for life we are optimistic that she will make significant improvements over the coming months and years. This page has been set up to raise funds to to enable Roberta to access the best treatment and rehabilitation available to aid in her recovery process. Nel mese di febbraio la mia fidanzata Roberta ha subito un'emorragia cerebrale da un aneurisma, 4 mesi prima del nostro matrimonio. Era stata portata in un ospedale locale nella sua città di origine dove operavano per fermare il sanguinamento. Fu trasferita in un ospedale di Roma dove lentamente l'ha portata fuori da un coma indotto. Per qualche giorno le cose stavano cercando molto positive; Roberta riuscì a confermare che poteva capire chi era intorno a lei e riuscì a parlare di bocca. Purtroppo, una settimana dopo c'era una complicazione e Roberta subì un ictus ischemico, danneggiando gran parte del lato sinistro del suo cervello. Rimase in coma per alcune settimane. I dottori allora affermavano che potrebbe non essere in grado di svegliarsi dal coma ma Roberta è forte e riuscita a svegliarsi dal coma. Anche se attenta, ancora non ha ancora trovato un modo per comunicare e ha importanti problemi di movimento. Si spera che Roberta possa essere subito trasferita in una clinica di riabilitazione specialistica. Non sappiamo quale sia il futuro per Roberta ma con la sua forza e la sua passione per la vita siamo ottimisti che farà notevoli miglioramenti nei prossimi mesi e anni. Questa pagina è stata creata per raccogliere fondi per consentire a Roberta di accedere ai migliori trattamenti e riabilitazione disponibili per aiutare nel processo di recupero.

Construction d'un nouvel orphelinat au Sri Lanka

Construction d'un nouvel orphelinat au Sri Lanka

(ENGLISH WILL FOLLOW) Bonjour à tous, Comme certains le savent peut-être déjà, je suis en ce moment au Sri Lanka menant une mission solidaire (enseigner l’anglais aux jeunes moines bouddhistes et élèves d’un village pauvre) au sein d’une ONG Sri Lankaise qui me loge et me nourrit pendant la durée de mon séjour ici.Cette association (Sri Bodhiraja Foundation) mène beaucoup de projets dans tout le pays pour tenter d’améliorer, au possible, la vie des plus démunies (voir le site de l’association plus bas).Un de ces projet est donc de construire un nouvel orphelinat pour accueillir et améliorer la vie de nombreuses jeunes filles qui n’ont aujourd’hui plus d’appuie familiale. Malheureusement, les jeunes filles vivant ici sont déjà vraiment nombreuses et n’ont que peu d’espace vitale (voir photo des dortoirs).L’orphelinat déjà en place était à la base prévu pour accueillir 15 personnes, c’est malheureusement 39 filles qui résident actuellement ici.Si elles sont si nombreuses c’est parce que l’association a préféré toutes les accepter plutôt que d’en laisser certaines entre de mauvaises mains.  C’est pourquoi j’ai donc aujourd’hui créé cet appel aux dons, jugeant qu’il est urgent d’améliorer la vie de ces jeunes filles qui ont déjà beaucoup souffert.Ce nouvel orphelinat permettra aussi de continuer à tendre la main à de nouvelles petites âmes en grand besoin de sécurité et d’amour. Si ce projet vous parle, je vous invite grandement à le soutenir et à faire un don (selon les moyens de chacun), sachant que même 1 € est déjà un poids considérable ici. Merci d’avance et merci aussi de partager cette page au maximum pour toucher le plus grand nombre possible (une autre façon d’aider et de soutenir ce projet !) Sabbe sattā sukhīta hontu.(Puisse tous les êtres être heureux et en paix.)Pol Thomas -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi everyone, As some may already know, I am currently in Sri Lanka leading a solidarity mission (teaching English to young Buddhist monks and pupils of a poor village) in a Sri Lankan NGO that lodges me and feeds me for the duration of my volunteering.This association (Sri Bodhiraja Foundation) carries out many projects throughout the country to try to improve the lives of the neediest (see the website of the association below).One of these projects is to build a new orphanage to welcome and improve the lives of many young girls who have no family support anymore. Unfortunately, the girls living here are already very numerous and have little vital space (see photo of the dormitories).The orphanage already in place was basically planned to accommodate 15 people,it is unfortunately 39 girls who are currently living here.If they are so numerous it's because the association has preferred to accept them rather than leaving some in the wrong hands. That is why I have today created this call for donations, considering that it is urgent to improve the lives of these young girls who have already suffered a lot.This new orphanage will also allow us to continue reaching out to new little souls in great need of security and love. If this project speaks to you, I greatly invite you to support it and to make a donation (according to the means of each one), knowing that even 1 € is already considerable here. Thank you in advance and thank you also to share this page to the maximum to reach as many as possible (another way to help and support this project!) Sabbe sattā sukhīta hontu.(May all beings be happy, well and peaceful.)Pol Thomas --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/Construction-dun-nouvel-orphelinat-au-Sri-Lanka-1417789121673371/ Foundation website : http://bodhirajafoundation.org/

Saving A Single Mother

Saving A Single Mother

Suheir Halawani, 50, is a mother of four. Not more than 11 years ago, Suheir was a married woman in a perfectly healthy state who had moved with her children to Lebanon from Ghana, where they were all born.That very year, 2005, she began experiencing numbness in her left first toe. Thinking that it could possibly be due to an unnoticed bump during rush times, or perhaps due to the difference in climate from Ghana, Suheir dismissed the idea by taking over-the-counter medication. Nonetheless, the numbness only increased as time went on, until it stretched across her entire left leg. She had already begun seeking medical attention and performing numerous tests at the time, only to be told something along the lines of "Your case is strange, we have never seen this before." Her tests showed absolutely no sign of deficiencies nor anything she should worry about. At least that's what the doctors said.About one year later, Suheir was virtually paralyzed. She could not feel nor control her lower half. It was not until one doctor who used cortisone treatment on her that she was gradually able to feel and walk on her legs normally. It was a dream come true. This dream lasted for a good four years. After that, her health plummeted once more. This time, it was due to marital problems. Since she has a nervous issue, anytime she gets worried or angry, her legs would turn as stiff as stone. She then went back for even more tests. In fact, she had spinal fluid extracted twice as well as a sample from her lips in one of the best medical centers in Lebanon, all in vain. Unfortunately, every doctor's calming promises were eventually broken. "You will walk out of this hospital, trust me," they said. In 2013, Suheir got divorced, and was cut from the monthly income her ex husband sent to her and the children, who were taken back to Ghana.Within a month, she was back at her mother's house with none of her children, and zero financial income. Needless to say, both her mental and physical health deteriorated after that.Perhaps I should mention that Suheir also has only one kidney, as she lost the other in a childhood accident. She therefore needs periodic bowel checkups, which she hasn't had for over 3 years now.I also didn't mention that I am Suheir's 16 year old, and last son. During the one month that I see my mother in every year, I have seen her giving up too many times, and hate to think that she is helpless. My only dream is to know that my mother is healthy, able to walk, and that she is reunited once more with my siblings and I. Thank you.  Please click to make a contribution, and be ensured that every single penny raised from this fundraiser will go solely to the treatment of my mother in the University of Ulm, Germany.* Give however much you want.* All payments are completely secure.Thank you!

Aidons Sunil à se construire un meilleur futur / Help Sunil build a brighter future!

Aidons Sunil à se construire un meilleur futur / Help Sunil build a brighter future!

Bienvenue sur cette cagnotte ! (scroll down for English!)Mon voyage en Inde bien que rapide m’a profondément bouleversée dans le sens ou j’ai été confrontée à beaucoup de misère et de pauvreté. Et tout d’un coup je me suis sentie encore plus privilégiée d’être née en France, d’avoir tant d’opportunités et de choix. J’ai rencontré là-bas un jeune garçon, Sunil, qui était mon guide pendant quelques jours pour visiter les temples de la ville ou je séjournais. Sunil a 22 ans, il travaille non pas en tant que guide à la base, mais s’occupe de la comptabilité de l’ashram ou je vivais. Il travaille 6 jours sur 7 de 9h à 19h chaque jour et gagne 10 000 roupies par mois ce qui est l’équivalent de 130 euros. Ce n’est pas son premier boulot, en effet il travaille depuis l’âge de 8 ans pour subvenir aux besoins de sa famille, sa mère et son petit frère. Son père est décédé lorsqu’il avait 2 ans.Un de ses grands rêves est de voir la Tour Eiffel un jour. En attendant il aimerait travailler au gouvernement en tant que IAS (Indian Administration Service) Officer. Pour cela il doit suivre une formation d’un an à la suite de laquelle il devra passer l’examen d’entrée. S’il réussit l’examen il pourra avoir accès à un bon emploi qui lui permettra de gagner au début 70000 roupies par mois soit 915 euros, et 7 fois son salaire actuel.  C’est un garçon ambitieux et intelligent qui travaille déjà dur, je n’ai aucun doute à ce qu’il puisse réussir cet examen ! La formation est couteuse et il ne peut actuellement pas se permettre de la financer. Nous avons a peu près besoin de 5200 EUR ce qui inclut :* les couts de la formation* 300 EUR par mois pendant un an : l’université étant à Delhi soit a trois heures de route de là ou il vit, il aura besoin d’un logement et devra continuer de soutenir sa famille* le prix d’un ordinateur pour lui permettre d’étudierAlors oui le total est un peu ambitieux, mais tout ce dont nous aurions besoin c’est que 520 personnes donnent 10 euros. Pour nous 10 euros, c’est deux verres dans un bar, un ticket de cinéma, ou un menu chez Mcdo. Pour Sunil cela pourrait être bien plus ! En lui permettant d’accéder à une formation qualifiante, nous pourrions l’aider à avoir un meilleur futur et surtout lui donner une chance de visiter, un jour, notre belle capitale.  *** Dear all,My recent trip to India has upset me in many ways; one of them is that I had never been confronted to so much poverty before. It made me feel even more privileged and fortunate to have been born in a country like France, that gives us opportunities and choices. There I met a young man, Sunil, who was my guide for a couple of days to visit some of the numerous Hindu temples of the city I was staying in. Sunil is 22; he actually does not work as a guide but takes care of the accounting in the ashram where I was living. He works 6 days a week from 9 to 7pm and earns 10 000 rupees every month, which corresponds to 150 US dollars. This is not his first job; indeed he has been working since he was 8 years old to support his family, his mother and little brother. His father died when he was 2 years old. One of his biggest dreams is to see the Eiffel Tower one day. Meanwhile he would like to work for the government as an IAS (Indian Administration Services) officer. In order to do that, he needs to take a one-year training after which he will take the entrance exam. If he passes the exam he will have access to a good job that will allow him to earn 70 000 rupees at the beginning (around 1000 USD). He is a very ambitious, smart and hardworking guy so I have no doubt that he will pass the exam! The training is costly and he is not able to afford it right now. We need about 6000 USD, which includes:* The one-year training* 350 USD per month for a year: the school is located in Delhi which is at a 3 hour-drive away from where he lives, he will need accommodation and he will have to keep supporting his family* The cost of a computer so he can studyThis amount is ambitiou

Enriqueta's help to create a new home after Mexico earthquake

Enriqueta's help to create a new home after Mexico earthquake

Dear Sir or Madam, As you may know, this last Tuesday the central area of Mexico was hit by an earthquake of magnitude 7.1. As the results of this natural catastrophy, over 255 people were killed and thousands of Mexicans were left without a home. Among them, my grand-mother, who worked and fought all her life to get a dignifying place to live watched all her work crumble into dust in seconds. She is therefore left, without a place to live, and without any hope of the government to help her situation.  Therefore, I come to you to help us collect the money she needs in order to rebuilt all that she has lost. Throught social network or any other way to share the news on the biggest possible scale.  The horrors left from this catastrophy are huge, but Mexico and its friends will not give up on helping those who needs it the most. Even the smallest gesture can make the difference. Thank you for your understanding.  Cher Madame, Monsieur, Comme vous le savez peut être, mardi dernier le centre de Mexico à été frappé par un tremblement de terre de magnitude 7.1. Cette catastrophe naturelle à laissé un bilan d'environs 255 morts et des milliers de Mexicains sans domicile. Parmi eux, ma grand mère, qui à travaillé et s'est battu toute sa vie pour obtenir un endroit digne pour vivre, a regardé son patrimoine s'effondrer en quelques secondes. Elle est donc laissé sans maison ou vivre et sans aucun espoir d'aide de la part du gouvernement mexicain.  C'est pour cela que je viens vers vous pour m'aider a collecter la somme dont elle a besoin afin qu'elle puisse reconstruire tout ce qu'elle a perdu.  A travers les réseaux sociaux, ou tout autre outil de diffusion d'information pour que l'impact soit à grande echelle. Les horreurs laissé par cette catastrophe sont enormes, mais le Mexique et autre contributeurs ne cesseront pas d'aider ceux qui en ont le plus besoin. Même le plus petit des gestes peut faire la différence. En vous remerciant de votre compréhension.  Estimado Señor o Señora, Como usted sabrà, el martes pasado la zona central de Mexico fue azotada por un terremoto de magnitud 7.1. Como resultado de esta catastrofe natural, mas de 255 personas murieron y miles de mexicanos perdieron su hogar. Entre ellos está mi abuela, quien trabajó y luchó toda su vida para poder conseguir un lugar digno donde vivir y quien tuvo que ver cómo el esfuerzo de tantos años se derrumbó en cuestion de segundos. Mi abuela quedo después de esto sin hogar y sin ninguna esperanza de que el gobierno le pueda ayudar. No pudo ni ir por sus pertenencias, ni por lo mas basico. Es por eso que quisiera pedirles su ayuda para poder recolectar el dinero suficiente para poder reconstruir lo que perdió.  Si podrian por favor difundir esto mediante redes sociales o cualquier otro medio para que el llegue a un maximo de gente posible. Toda ayuda recibida, sin importar lo grande o pequeña que sea, hará una gran diferencia. Muchas gracias por su comprencion.

Fundraiser for my sister Myriam and her family.

Fundraiser for my sister Myriam and her family.

PLEASE SHARE In English: Hello, For whoever is reading this, my name is Zacharie MICHEL and I’m the brother of Myriam MICHEL. As you’ve probably already heard, hurricane Irma passed by beginning of September, ravaging islands in the West Indies. My sister lives in St Martin, and she and her family were directly hit by the hurricane. Thankfully, all of them made it out unharmed, but the entire island was destroyed. Contacting anyone on the island is terribly hard, but from the little information I’ve been given, I know the situation is still dire. Electric lines are still out and water and food are still difficult to access. UPDATE: Looters have been stopped, yayyyy ^^. Myriam is currently staying with her boyfriend, and his children. They are currently living in a very difficult situation. Obviously because the island is destroyed, but they’ve also lost their jobs, UPDATE: They are not in immediate danger from looters anymore, and things are moving in the right way. All the money we raise here will go to them. This money will help them survive for the next upcoming weeks, and help them rebuild their lives. Any amount helps. Sharing this post to friends also helps greatly. We hope this reaches as many people as it can, and that this will help our family and friends who are in St Martin. Thank you all for reading this and for helping. Zacharie MICHEL En Français : Bonjour, Pour ceux qui lisent ceci, je m’appelle Zacharie MICHEL et je suis le frère de Myriam Michel. Comme vous le savez probablement déjà, l’ouragan Irma a ravagé les Antilles début septembre. Ma sœur vivant à St Martin, elle et sa famille ont été directement frappés par l’ouragan. Heureusement, ils s’en sont tous sortis sains et saufs, mais l’ile a entièrement été détruite. Contacter les gens sur l’ile est très compliqué, mais grâce aux peu d’informations que j’ai pu avoir, je sais que la situation est très précaire. Les lignes de courant sont toujours hors services, l’eau et la nourriture sont difficiles d’accès. UPDATE : Les pillages ne sont plus présents. Myriam est actuellement avec son petit ami et ses enfants. Actuellement, la vie sur l’ile est vraiment difficile. Bien sûr, car l’ile est détruite et qu’ils ont perdu leurs travails. UPDATE: Ils ne sont plus en danger direct des pillards, et les choses semble avancer dans la bonne direction.Tout l’argent récolté ira directement a eux. Cet argent les aidera à survivre pendant les prochaines semaines, mais aussi les aidera à reconstruire leur vie. Même un petit geste peut les aider. Partager ce post avec vos amis aidera également beaucoup. Nous espérons atteindre le plus de personnes possible et ainsi, pouvoir aider nos familles et nos amis à St Martin. Merci à tous pour votre attention et votre aide. Zacharie MICHEL Photos: This used to be their work place (Restaurant Ocean 82)

Operation Cyclone Irma Public Gardens

Operation Cyclone Irma Public Gardens

Welcome to this money pot !Tourism is the base of St. Barthélemy economy. Taxi drivers, Restaurants, Hotels, supermarkets, boutiques, and many others, along with all their relative employees depend on the flux of tourists each year. Following the devastating passage of hurricane Irma on September 6, the Rotary Club of St. Barthélemy has committed to embark on a major reconstruction/re-plantation of the public gardens around the Gustavia Harbour. This will be the third time since hurricane Louis in 1995 that the Island leaders have entrusted in our club this important project. We plan to begin with phase 1: from the pétanque field to the Tourism office. If we are able to raise more than our initial objective, we will continue rehabilitation around the harbor, in front of the Anglican Church to the kiosk. Our members will be donating their time and expertise collaborating on the design, sourcing, supplying and financing and planting. We will create a sustainable project and avoid replantation of species that aren't adapted to our harsh conditions by working closely with the head of the environmental committee and the Collectivity of Saint Barthélemy.  We have set an initial budget at 80,000 euros for phase 1. Our Board has agreed to put our entire treasury (40,000)  towards this ambitious project but it's clear that we will need District and private support. Our goal will be to raise 50,000 through district support and donations. Luckily many people are motivated to help and give back to this wonderful community, but it's important to choose something sustainable. With the impact Irma will inevitably have on our tourist season and economy, it's a priority to replant as early as possible. Following Hurricane Louis in September of '95, our club and our partners were able to complete the gardens by Thanksgiving! We have a few more challenges this year but our objective might be the completion prior to Christmas 2017, welcoming back out first tourists of what will be a difficult but important season for the future of St. Barthélemy. Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
