Dear Friends and family,As we are currently in Maputo, many of you have reached out to Kiki and me to see how you could help the families affected by Cyclone Idai. The situation just up north from us is dire. This past week, we have personally delivered more than 7 tons of goods, worth over 16,000 EUR, to the Port of Maputo. The supplies have been sorted into family-sized relief kits and loaded onto a Ocean Africa’s MV Border ship that is on its way to Beira. A team on the ground in Beira will distribute supplies directly to the victims. The situation is far from over. We are still collecting donations to send the next shipment of supplies. If you would like to support, we are able to receive donations through: If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Love and gratitude from Maputo,Kiki & Nico Articles:- www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/19/cyclone-idai-worst-weather-disaster-to-hit-southern-hemisphere-mozambique-malawi- https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47661437
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 interests of his mother Barbara (who is still alive and being held almost incommunicado in the "care" of York social services). Barbara was kidnapped at gunpoint, with liberal use of pepper spray, by a joint team of North Rhine-Westphalia police and British military police, acting outside their jurisdiction, in May 2014 and was hauled back to York. This was despite both Barbara and Peter holding official Persecuted Persons status in Germany as a result of the authorities there having accepted that criminal networks in public office in both Britain and Austria were out to get them. When Peter contacted England's Court of Protection about the kidnap of his mother, they slammed the phone down on him. For this reason, the fundraising target is £20,000 sterling to enable both these legal challenges. Private prosecutions, or actions using cheap or free non-lawyers, are not possible at all in the Austrian court system and are effectively ruled out in this case in England, since it was Peter's bringing of a private prosecution at York in December 2014 which prompted him to be arrested on bogus child pornography charges and extradited to Austria to be declared mad without being examined. A penetrating overview of the case by UK Column is given below (the page contains a link to a podcast on many details of the abuses perpetrated against Barbara and Peter Hofschröer). UK Column News will continue to promote the case and Robert and Barbara's desperate need for legal assistance to have any hope of getting out of this "dark heart of the deep state". Any would-be donor who wants to be telephoned by Peter (which is fortunately still possible from his psychiatric ward) or e-mailed by UK Column's Europe correspondent Alex Thomson to check that this is a genuine case can do so by contacting Andy Peacher on 01847 539317 or using the 'Contact Alex Thomson' option at https://www.ukcolumn.org/contact (select under 'Category' in the contact form to contact Alex Thomson).Write-up of the case by UK Column: https://www.ukcolumn.org/dispatches-from-the-front/dark-heart-deep-state-hofschroer-grandma-b-case http://www.freedomtalkradio.co.uk/barbara-and-peter-hofschroer-political-prisoners-and-victims-of-the-state/
Ce projet représente un nouveau départ pour nos loulous, un moyen de les mettre à l'abri, voilà pourquoi nous avons besoin de vous pour leur offrir un refuge aux normes où ils seront en sécurité ! Ceci est un appel à votre générosité, à votre grand coeur, pour la construction d'un refuge SAVE pour nos loulous. C'est la seule solution pour continuer à sauver les loulous de Roumanie de manière durable et à les rapatrier vers la Belgique/France où ils pourront vivre dignement. Sans vous, ce projet ne pourra pas aboutir ! Notre projet de construction - sur 1 hectare :Nous allons constuire notre refuge sur une parcelle d'un peu moins de 1000 m2 sur une colline, derrière le siège de l'association où nos loulous seront en sécurité. Nous devrons ensuite obtenir un permis d'urbanisme, une autorisation de l'Agence de protection de l'environnement et une autorisation de construire.Voici les différentes étapes de construction et les aménagements aux normes que nous prévoyons. Nous pourrons vous donner des éléments plus précis dès que nous aurons fait un cahier des charges avec notre entrepreneur. Aidez-nous à réaliser ce projet à taille humaine pour continuer à sauver des loulous de Roumanie ! Grâce à Vous, ce projet pourra voir le jour et nous pourrons continuer notre action dans la région : stérilisations, soins, vaccins, adoptions, et espérons-le à long terme, changement des mentalités. Merci pour votre soutien ! L'équipe de Save & Hope
étapes ludiquesL’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 8 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 2019 (après-midi jeux de société, journée de roulage (motocross), concert de Nicolas St-Lanne, rallye vélo avec étapes ludiques, soirée années 90 et la 3e édition de la randonnée semi nocturne avec repas par étapes...) 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/

Ayudemos! cualquier ayuda cuenta, se trata de muchos niños, madres, ancianos, a los que les cae bien un poco de abrigo, cuento contigo!

Bonjour à tous, J'ai été profondément touchée par la triste situation du chauffeur de mon amie Marie Claire en Inde dont je connais le professionnalisme, le dévouement et la gentillesse légendaire depuis plus de 6 ans auprès de familles françaises.Shri a eu un terrible accident domestique il y a une semaine : brûlé à 60% au visage et à une main, il est hospitalisé et est en soins. Il nous a demandé notre aide financière car comme beaucoup de personnes, il n'a pas d'assurance accident ou maladie. Son employeur a déjà fait beaucoup pour lui notamment pour les premiers soins et pour maintenir son salaire sur janvier et février mais il a besoin d'une aide supplémentaire pour subir une intervention et continuer à payer ses soins. Je fais donc appel à vous, à votre bonté, pour l'aider comme vous le pouvez, TOUT l'argent récolté lui sera intégralement reversé.C'est la première fois que j'ouvre une cagnotte en ligne mais sa situation m'attriste profondément....Si vous avez envie de lui tendre la main, vous pouvez faire un virement, même 1 euro l'aidera !Un grand merci pour luiPauline Hello everyone,I was deeply touched by the sad situation of my friend Marie Claire's driver in India whose I know the professionalism, dedication and kindness legendary for over 6 years with French families touch me deeply.Shri had a terrible domestic accident a week ago: 60% burned in the face and one hand, he is hospitalized and in care. He asked us for our financial help because like many people, he has no accident or sickness insurance. His employer has already done a lot for him especially for first aid and to maintain his salary on January and February but he needs additional help to undergo surgery and continue to pay for his care. I appeal to you, to your goodness, to help him as you can, ALL the money collected will be fully returned to him.This is the first time I open an online kitty but I feel so concerned....If you want to reach out to him, you can make a transfer even one euro will help !A big thank you for himPauline
EVICTION NOTICE! WE NEED $5000 IN 2 WEEKS OR WE ARE HOMELESS! Our contract has ended and we haven’t been able to find a suitable temporary replacement as the one we had lined up fell through! Time is up and the landlord wants us out! The power will be cut to the house in 2 days and Olek has to get out! After some difficult negotiations we have been able to buy some extra time for the animals but it’s only a few weeks! Olek himself has to be out by Sunday and has nowhere to go. He will not leave his animals in a dangerous situation so needs a generator ASAP to hook up the flood lights to keep wild animals away at night. He also needs somewhere to sleep nearby to ensure the animals are safe.He is currently desperately in search of a temporary property that He can get fenced ASAP and start moving the animals to safety. We need urgent funds to make this happen! This is a desperate situation and I dread to think what will happen if we can’t raise these funds! These animals have been through so much already, and so has Olek, they urgently need your help! Help us get $5000 in the next 2 weeks to not only save the huge amount of rescues he currently has but for those who will need his help in the future!
I have the dream to become a conference interpreter... I'm a Tolosan (France) high school girl that will graduate this year. Since a few year, I dream to integrate a school in Paris that can afford me to study the career of conference interpreter, my dream work.But unfortunately, nor I (I'm only a student) or my family can pay me the school I want to go to. It cost 15000 euros/years, during 6 years. I have two other sisters in graduate studies, so if I can't help my family to pay, I'll never fulfill my dream I worked hard to create.This lack of money is the only brake over that dream.I don't live in France, I'm living in the World, and I want to work for this World. So, this is to the World I'm asking for help. I have a dream. What about you ?
My name is Ashlee Blair, I am a Mother to 3 beautiful children, Amelia is four, little Peter is three and in 2016 our youngest, Conor was born. I live in Greenisland with my wonderful partner Peter and as well as look after the children (which is a full time job in itself) I work as a care assistant looking after elderly and vulnerable people with Dementia and Alzheimers. My life was as perfect as life can be. I was raising a beautiful family with the man I loved and even though I had already achieved so much at only 28 I looked forward to the future with my wonderful family. We had no idea that soon, our lives would be thrown into turmoil.In October 2016 I found a lump in my breast. Then in December I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. There are no words to describe how we felt when we heard the doctor say it, I became so scared and worried for my kids. It was beyond surreal, one day I was planning a family Christmas and the next I've been diagnosed with Cancer. My joy and happiness replaced by fear and uncertainty. After the initial shock wave dissipated and my head stopped spinning, I looked at my kids and I knew I could not give up, they were counting on me, they needed their Mum to be strong and fight back. So in January 2017 I began Chemotherapy which was very hard, it took such a toll on me. I was constantly sick, all my hair fell out and I didn't even have have the energy to play with the kids. That's who I was doing this for and I couldn't even play with them, I was devastated but I still didn't give up, even when I had to have a double mastectomy on top of everything I was already dealing with. My body and spirit was broken but if I could pull through this and be there for my children it would all be worth it. That was what I held onto through all of it. That is what kept me strong. In 2018 I began to recover, My family was so proud of me. I had endured the pain of Chemotherapy and Radiography and came out the other end. The physical and mental scars of my double mastectomy had started to heal. My hope for the future was returning and I had returned to work as a care assistant but most importantly, I was beginning to feel like a mum again. I could lift up my children and play with them, that was all I had wanted the whole time, seeing their happy smiling faces almost made me forget the fear I had felt before but again this happiness was not to last.Later in the year I began to struggle with back and abdominal pain and in July I had to undergo surgery once again to remove an Ovary, a growth on my pelvis and other growths throughout my body. These turned out to be benign and in August 2018 I celebrated being one year cancer free, I finally dared to hope again, it seemed as though my life would now continue on the intended course, I could watch my children flourish and I could leave Cancer behind me.But the back pain increased and then I found a lump under my arm, I developed rib pain and sadly, the week before Christmas, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer, from my neck down my spine including my ribs, pelvis, hips and femurs. Again, there are no words to describe how completely soul crushing it was to hear this. I felt as though I was being punished for daring to hope.We have started this fundraiser because my Oncologist has given me 12-24 but I would like to explore some alternative therapies to use alongside my Chemotherapy.We are also asking for help with the costs of myself being off work and in the foreseeable future my partner Peter also being off work so he can look after me. I am currently in the hospital as my pain has grown to unmanageable levels but I hope to be home again with my family soon. I just want to watch my babies grow for as long as I possibly can. My family and I would be very grateful to you if you could help me achieve that by donating to our fight.If I were to pass on whilst fighting against this then I would like the donations to go towards my funeral cost and the rest for my kids.Fro
Hi my friend and supporter, Did you know this? In our community there are many children from poor financial backgrounds whomiss out on school due to lack of what many of us refer to as simple scholasticmaterials such as a Note/Exercise Book, Pen, Ruler, Geometry Set, Crayon,Ream of Paper, a Pencil etc. Besides tution, children from poor financial backgrounds will never have scholastic materials on time.They will always report to school late and are often sent home for scholastic materials. This means that they will always miss out on the curriculum which affects their education potential. Please partner with us to change this now. Donate a scholastic material and you provide an opportunity for a disadvantaged child to access school and have hope for a brighter future.
