Philippines Family Support

Dear EDITION team,As some of you may have heard, Philippines have been ravaged by a Typhoon. Some of our colleagues have family there, their houses have been destroyed and they lost their belonging.We want to help and raise some money to support them.THANK YOUPlease see below a message to Rachel Anne to us: Dear Edition Family, One week before Christmas Typhoon Odette (International name: Rai) the strongest typhoon Ravaged the Central and Southern parts of the Philippines on December 16-17 2021, it started around 1pm from other regions of the Philippines and the eye of the typhoon lands until dawn in our hometown provinces in the Philippines. What happened is still so fresh until now, every detail,every feeling,every worry are still felt by some filipinos which was badly affected. A lot of livelihood were gone, many families had lost their houses including ours and even lives were lost during the catastrophe, the devastation was unforgettable. It was the first time in our whole life my family experienced a traumatic such tragedy in our place. But despite the trials they are facing right now, seeing the smiles on their faces and the heartbreaking yet uplifting spirit of "Importante Buhi" or "the most Important is we're alive" shows how optimistic and resilient these people are and had me the reason to help and this is the only way I could help them and to ease their pain. In behalf of the victims of Typhoon Odette especially my family and neighbours in my hometown, I am Rachel from Ronda Cebu Philippines, knocking on your generous and humble heart to please help me raise some aid for my small hometown who is devastatingly hit by Typhoon (Rai) locally named as Odette. They were on Signal number 4 category. All telecommunications are down, even at this moment i wasn't able to have a direct contact with my parents only my brother who travel 5 hrs to the city from our province to find connection to update us even just for a couple of minutes, no electricity, no internet, limited food and no water supply at this moment. The life in my country is tough. You work hard for less money and in a blink of an eye, everything is lost. God is still good to spare one's life coz we Filipinos are resilient and will always rise up. Morever, With the aid of your help and heartfelt donations of any kind amount, it can provide water, food and medicine. From there on, the trusted individual will buy all the relief goods to be sent and distributed to our hometown (Ronda Cebu Philippines). And In behalf of my 2 co-filipino workers, one is from Bohol (Arlyn: uniform attendant) which she is also from one of which greatly affected areas in the Philippines and 1 guy (kitchen staff) who somehow lost his family's source of income in cebu. I know their families are also in need of basic necessities. I want to share to them the financial support that will be raise. Or if you want to offer them personally the support is way better. Bohol and Cebu Philippines are now under state of calamity. Also your contributions will help other families who got affected by the pandemic and lost their source of income. Everything will be documented including your financial support. If you have questions, I would be happy to provide you with more information. May God repay you a hundred folds for your kind donation. 🙏🏻🖤 (this is open to anyone who wants to help and support) these are the devastating reality and aftermath of typhoon Odette. Together we rise strong, but we need help too, that's the reality. 😔thank you so much and may God bless us all.🙏🏻🖤

Helping out a gay refugee

Helping out a gay refugee

Hi there, to whoever is reading this. My name is Rammah Alashkar I’m a 23-year-old Arab gay boy from Syria, who is currently in French Guiana and in the need of much help, Here is my story so that maybe you could understand where I’m coming from and how maybe you could eventually help me.Everything started in my homeland Syria. Maybe everyone already knows about the situation that's going on there currently, but if not I’ll tell you. Syria has been in a very violent and severe war for almost 9 years now. In 2017 I had to flee my country and leave my entire life behind so that I didn't get drafted in the army to give my service (which basically meant to go and die). I came to Venezuela, a country where the entire culture was different and I barely knew anyone. I was so devastated as I left home, my friends and my life in Syria behind and sadly enough for me things didn't go better. I’m grateful that I could flee and survive don't get me wrong, but Venezuela had been also having their own issues with economy, politics and also safety, there I had to stay for two years in one room on the building of a couple of relatives. This room had a broken ac, a non-working fridge, and a very old broken bed. This wasn't enough to get me fully down tho, as I said I stayed two years there, what was really crushing me was the disconnect from culture, other humans and from myself. I started to get really depressed because I was being discriminated for acting differently and yelled at for not “trying” enough to invest myself in this new life of mine. But this felt like no life for me, each second of every day I felt unhappy. I had to leave.Thankfully enough my parents helped me out with some money to go to French Guiana cause there they were accepting people who fled from Venezuela. The problem was that the place where I was supposed to arrive in French Guiana belonged to my homophobic uncle, with whom I already had had problems. This wasn't the first time that I was discriminated from my relatives because of my sexuality, it happened a lot to in the place where I stayed at in Venezuela, I hadn't been out but people and especially my relatives would give me dirty looks and discriminate me because of my sexuality and for how I was. Therefore I couldn't get to that point again. That's why when I got here to French Guiana I immediately asked for refuge in an LGBTQ+ Center. Things seemed to be having a turning point for me or at least that's what I thought.Now to the present day. I had plans of starting over, getting a job, learn french and leave for France as soon as possible. But finding a job here was very difficult for me not only because I didn't know the language but because people were discriminating against me yet again, and this time it wasn’t only caused by my sexuality but because of my race. And when I finally started school the pandemic happened, I couldn't finish my studies cause I’m quarantined, therefore I couldn't get a job, which led me to not being able to leave for France.I’m very depressed at the moment, it seems like the odds are always against me and I can never get it right. But I’m not giving up yet and to do so I need ur help. You see the LGBTQ+ Center only offers their refugees a place to stay for a certain amount of months, me I have only 2 months left. Even if the pandemic and quarantine are through in a short time, it wouldn't give me the time to save up the money that I need for my plane ticket and save my arrival in France. That's why your donation means so much to me, anything is appreciated.Oh and also, if you’re having troubles through this site my PayPal is( PayPal.me/ramosxcurse )thank you for taking your time of the day to read my story and if you donated thank you so much for giving me hope for a future again. Goodbye :)

Soutenir une famille d'Ukraine

Soutenir une famille d'Ukraine

Bonjour,Nous sommes une famille d'Ukraine, nous avons dû quitter notre maison et obtenir l'asile temporaire en France. Papa Dima, mère Tanya, fils Lev(7 ans), fille Lola(3 ans) et sœur cadette Dima- Stasya (18 ans, handicapé).Nous avons besoin d’être aidé.1. Un ordinateur portable workstation pour Dima afin qu'il puisse continuer à étudier pour devenir artiste 3D et travailler.Nous avons quitté notre maison sans pouvoir rien amener. Nous avons également besoin de livres pour la formation. De plus, le téléphone de Dima est cassé.2. Stasya a besoin d'aide, elle a un handicap. Il lui est difficile de contrôler les émotions et de comprendre les tâches exactes, mais elle est très gentille et très serviable. Nous devons trouver quelque chose à faire pour elle, peut-être des cours de dessin ou de modélisation. Ou elle pourrait aider dans une organisation, nettoyer ou faire du travail. Il est difficile pour elle de rester à la maison toute la journée.3. Nous avons besoin de fonds pour les cours de français à l’Alliance Française pour notre famille. Ils offrent une réduction aux Ukrainiens, et vous pouvez suivre un cours intensif pour 100 € par semaine et par personne.4. Les enfants ont besoin de vêtements pour la saison chaude, car nous avons quitté la maison en hiver.Nous serons heureux et reconnaissants pour toute aide.Nous avons quitté notre maison à cause de la guerre, qui est arrivée de façon inattendue. Pendant 10 jours, nous nous sommes cachés au sous-sol, l'alarme a augmenté de plus en plus. Cela se reflétait particulièrement chez les enfants, nous avons donc décidé de partir le 11ème jour.La route était très difficile, nous y sommes arrivés pendant 8 jours, nous avons changé 7 nuits et nous avons traversé 6 frontières. En chemin, les enfants avaient la varicelle, nous y sommes arrivés sans voiture, presque tout notre argent a été utilisé pour le voyage.Mathilde nous a rencontrés à Bordeaux. Mathilde et Gilles sont un couple marié avec qui nous vivons depuis 3 semaines. Nous nous sentons bien avec eux, ils sont très gentils et nous aident beaucoup. Les enfants vont déjà à l'école.

MAKIMEI ORPHANAGE NEEDS A PLACE TO LIVE IN

MAKIMEI ORPHANAGE NEEDS A PLACE TO LIVE IN

Jambo! Hola! Bonjour! Hi! We are Pau Buyreu and Hélène Ballart, two students from Barcelona, Spain. This last August we went to Nairobi, Kenya to volunteer in an orphanage: Makimei children's home. Pau with Kamau and Natasha.Hélène with Ndungu. It was our first time volunteering in Africa and we discovered a whole new world we didn’t fully realised it existed. This orphanage is managed by a single woman, Mama Margarette, with the help of her daughter and brother, Ruth and James. She also gets a lot of help from her oldest orphan, the first kid she hosted, Rachel. Today, she is taking care of over 70 children who were found abandoned in the streets of Nairobi. She is a real life-saver. Mama feeding the kids.As you can imagine, they live very precariously and Mama Margarette struggles day by day to get the orphanage going. They rent a house in Kikuyu, a district in the outskirts of Nairobi. However, they are now facing a really big problem. The owners of the house they rent want to recuperate it, so Mama and the kids have to move out by December. The problem is they don't have enough money, so far, to rent or buy a new place. This means that by December, Mama and all the kids won't have any place to go. This situation is really stressing and urgent. We have created this crowdfunding to raise money so that we can contribute to find a roof for these children. Each contribution, even small amounts, will make a difference. If we all contribute, we might get them a decent place to live, which they truly deserve and need. Helping them is easy for us, let’s make a change! “Oh think twice, it's another day for you and me in paradise.” - Phill Collins We have an instagram page where you can learn more about the orphanage and contact with us: @childrens_home_makimei
