Anna's new wheelchair

Anna's new wheelchair

Welcome to my money pot! I am Anna, I was diagnosed with Friderichs Ataxia when I was 14, a progressively more degenerative illness with symptoms not dissimilar to MND though with slower progression. This slowly took away my mobility and by the time I was 16 I was needing to use a wheelchair every day, however this wheelchair only allowed me to self propel inside and my world got smaller and darker. When I was 21 a charity called Action for Kids considered me a kid and helped me fund an outdoor powered wheelchair; the Alber Adventure. It totally opened up my world and allowed me to go to places that I just couldn't  for at least the previous 5 years, everone else takes an afternoon at a country park for granted. The first holiday after getting the chair was to The Lake District and I can't explain how liberating it was and my world grew and grew. Although the Alber Adventure is a great chair, it has now had 11 years of hard use, it is no longer manufactured and so it has a couple of major faults now that just can't be sorted out. It has served me well, and in that time it has allowed me to volunteer as a Rainbow, Brownie and Guide leader including taking my Guides to Switzerland, taking the Guides on camp, and to Somerset, taking the Brownies on unit holiday and plenty of walks, orienteering, treasure hunts, sports days and wide games in the New Forest and parks. I also volunteered at Scout Eurojam in Essex, on Brownsea Island for the Scout Centenary, a Scout Jamboree in Ireland and hopefully at The World Scout Moot in Iceland this summer. I have done my Duke of Edinburgh and Queens Guide awards and enjoy dog walks pretty much every day, some  in the New Forest some other local areas. I always had an adventurous streak as a child an outdoor powerchair allows me to be who I want to be and desperately don't want to have to let that go. I need to replace the Alber Adventure, however the replacement is going to cost £13.608 as this is how much I have been quoted by All Terrain Wheelchairs (01952 471255 - Quote 1285)I hope to be doing a number of challenges and sponsored events to be actively work for these funds. * Should this be funded be the NHS? - The NHS are only responsible for an everyday chair, not this.* Are you applying to charities? - Yes however I am only eligible to apply to a few charities for grants and the maximum awarded is usually about £2500.* Shouldn't you have just saved for this? 2 years ago Dan and I bought a house. We kept back some savings for an extension to the house to improve the access and for a replacement chair. We were told that we would be eligible for some statuatory help with the building works for access; but we were then told we were ineligible so we were forced to spend all our savings on creating access to our home.* Does this site charge fees? - Yes but it is one of the lowest around. 2.9% (for money pots over £2,000) although if you prefer you can donate to me or the wheelchair company directly.

Improving Mental Health for the Poor in Cambodia

Improving Mental Health for the Poor in Cambodia

This page is to donate money to Prof. Alex Wood to help some of the poorest people in Cambodia to get better mental health care. The money is planned to be used as part of an ongoing project to improve the treatment of mental health in the region, or to be donated to a hospital which gives good healthcare to the poorest people for free (or at a cost affordable to them).Best value charitable donation - no middle menA key challange with giving to charity is knowing how much actually gets to where it is needed. Alex is able to personally take the money to where it is needed and use or give the money directly to the hospitals. No middle men, no employees, no advertising, none of the normal worries about the efficiency of charities.Our Mental Health ProjectImproving mental health services is a key health challenge for developing countries across South East Asia. Cambodia faces particular challenges following a genocide and series of wars in the 1970s and 1980s. During this period health care and university services were nearly entirely destroyed, including through a particular targeting of medical practitioners and academics for execution during the Pol Pot era. In the last two decades, Cambodia has made impressive efforts to rebuild its health and educations systems, including through the establishment of a basic infrastructure of hospitals, medical education universities, and aspirations to conduct international quality research. This has led to notable improvements in physical health as seen, for example, in arrested and declining HIV rates. However, mental health needs have been nearly entirely neglected, and the Cambodian population is largely without access to even rudimentary psychiatric or psychological treatments in both primary and secondary care, leading to several problems.First, rates of untreated mental illness are very high, with associated suffering and stigmatisation. Globally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that depression alone causes more suffering than that generated by all physical disorders combined. This suffering may be expected to be exceptionally high in Cambodia as almost no one in the older generation will have avoided witnessing or experiencing highly traumatic events, and the younger generation will have been born and parented in the recent aftermath of the trauma.Second, mental health conditions are often miss-diagnosed as physical, leading to inappropriate treatment that both wastes resources and risks harming the patient through unnecessary treatment, which in many cases exacerbates the mental health condition.Third, the treatment of chronic physical health conditions is complicated through a lack of assessment or treatment of co-morbid mental health conditions, resulting in the physical health conditions being more difficult and expensive to treat, as well as causing a considerably worse prognosis for the patient. For example, key challenges of HIV programmes include; (a) missed appointments, (b) patients dropping out of the system, (c) the need to locate patients that have so disengaged, (d) lack of adherence to treatment leading to both the emergence of opportunistic infections and HIV medication failure, (e) the need to use newer, more expensive medication due to first line medication failure, and (f) erratic medication compliance risking the emergence of drug resistance at the population level with international implications. Much of these problems emerge from patient disengagement and non-compliance, a key predictor of which in other countries is untreated simple mental health conditions such as depression. Adding a mental health assessment and treatment protocol may both reduce these problems and lead to a net financial saving for the programme.The implementation of an evidence based mental health programme is not currently possible due to the near total lack of research on how to assess or treat mental health in Cambodia, and there is no current mechanism to disseminate new p

Solidarity for Victoria

Solidarity for Victoria

Welcome to Solidarity for Victoria  ,a human help money pot !We are the parents of Victoria.Victoria is affected from many years from  with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) with Major depressive disorder and Panic attackNow she is 35, and she has not been able to have a life as the others girls.. Who is affected by it  tend to be extremely sensitive. Some describe it as feeling like an exposed nerve ending. Small things can trigger intense reactions. And once upset, you have a hard time calming down. It’s easy to understand how this emotional volatility and inability to self-soothe leads to relationship turmoil and impulsive—even reckless—behavior. There is often an extreme fear of abandonment, frequent dangerous behavior, a feeling of emptiness, and self-harm. When you’re in the throes of overwhelming emotion, you’re unable to think straight and stay grounded. You may say hurtful things or act out in dangerous or inappropriate ways that make you feel guilty and ashamed later on. BPD is related to lower functioning and disability, even when socioeconomic status, medical conditions, and all psychiatric disorders were controlled .It’s a painful cycle that can feel impossible to escape. But it’s not.There are several treatments that are most often used to manage BPD:1. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on the concept of mindfulness, or paying attention to the present emotion. DBT teaches skills to control intense emotions, reduce self-destructive behavior, manage distress, and improve relationships. It seeks a balance between accepting and changing behaviors. This proactive, problem-solving approach was designed specifically to treat BPD. Treatment includes individual therapy sessions . DBT is the most studied treatment for BPD and the one shown to be most effective.2. Mentalization-based therapy (MBT) 3. Transference-focused therapy (TFP) 4. Good Psychiatric Management: GPM provides mental health professionals an easy-to-adopt “tool box” for patients with severe personality disorders.5. Medications can cure BPD and can help treat other conditions that often accompany BPD such as depression, impulsivity, and anxiety, SUICIDAL ideation . Often patients are treated with several medications.6. Self-Care activities include: regular exercise, good sleep habits, a nutritious diet, taking medications as prescribed, and healthy stress management. Donate to funding better therapies and, ultimately, cures...and to find better life. we are in difficulty now, after years of therapies and medicines to really high costsYour donation will help real Victoria who live through this!With the help of Charity  we can help her with her mental illness and for suicide preventionCharities where your money will be put to good use.

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.

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!

Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure Hi Guys Im not the best at doing this kind of thing as my pride gets in the way, However I have a project that will help me professionally. As many of you know I am a flustist and started playing at the age of 12. I advanced very quickly and within my 3rd year of playing I had achieved my grade 8 exams and was accepted to study a bachelor of music in flute performance at Auckland university. I have spent many years lost not knowing what to do, Working in retail, restaurants etc. Now Im in Paris and have had the opportunity to return my studies and really make a go of music as my career. I am currently studying in Paris with an amazing American teacher and will sit my DipABRSM exams (1st step diploma professionally) on the 15th of june after just 9 months of return to study and 4-5 hours a day of practise. I am currently looking for work here in Paris but am finding it hard as my french is not amazing. I hope to start getting students to teach flute and work part time probably back in retail and maybe small gigs to fund my lessons and masterclasses and future exams in the coming years. Not to mention daily living costs. This project is to fund a new semi professional flute so I can continue to advance and develop. I currently play on a student model flute that no longer allows me to push my technique and develop further. Please, If you can give me a hand and donate to this money pot and if you have any questions I will be happy to answer. There is no maximum or minimum amount anything will be appreciated. And of course I will definately keep you all updated on my progress. Thank you so much to all of you for your support. Chris

Fundraising for Bristol Heart Institute, Bronglais Hospital and Wales Air Ambulance

Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you! On 12 June 2017, I took my son Daniel to A&E at Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth.  He was admitted and moved to the Cardiac Ward the following day.  That evening, he was flown by the Wales Air Ambulance to Bristol Heart Infirmary, where sadly he passed away the following day during a procedure to try and support his heart and get his kidneys working. He was a little fighter, but this last battle was just too much for him and his heart stopped beating.  We are all heartbroken, he was such a special person who brought so much love into the lives of everybody he met. Bronglais Hospital were absolutely fantastic, on the Tuesday they had a 2 hour window to get him into a helicopter and transported to the specialist centre in Bristol.  His Consultant in Bristol waited until 10 in the evening, until he arrived, to check him in and do his vitals.  He then phoned me as I was on my way down in the car. Despite being moved to Intensive Care the following day, and having the best team work on him, sadly during the procedure his heart gave up. As a thank you, and because I know it is what Daniel would have wanted, we decided to have a collection for the three teams that supported him throughout his short life.   I cannot commend Bristol, Bronglais and the Air Ambulance teams enough, they made his last few days very comfortable and he passed away very peacefully.  Without the support from everyone around him, the outcome might have been hugely different.  I know that all three organisations need funds to continue their good work, and whilst we will be unlikely to make much of a drop in the ocean, every small amount helps. Please give generously, so that our NHS can continue with the good work that they do, and the Air Ambulance team can continue flying.  Funnily enough, the Wales Air Ambulance was a charity I always supported as I thought that one day, we might need their services.  Well, we did, and it was thanks to them that Daniel got to Bristol in time and was supported by a team of specialists who put him completely at ease and who he trusted implicitly.

Medica Afghanistan's medical emergency fund

Medica Afghanistan's medical emergency fund

Welcome to Medica Afghanistan's medical emergency fund !Violence against women and girls is still pervasive in our country and it hinders peace and development for all Afghan people. At Medica Afghanistan, we have been committed to end this violence since 2002. Despite struggling with an increasingly insecure environment, our team successfully supports 2,000 women every year with psychosocial counselling and legal aid. We also work with key people in politics and society to raise their awareness and build their capacity, and advocate for local and national policies to strengthen the rights of women. All of the women served by Medica Afghanistan are especially vulnerable – many of them being widows who have been traumatized by violence and face extreme poverty with no means of economic support. Some of them need urgent medical support.  While we don’t provide medical services ourselves, we cooperate with hospitals where we refer our clients for examination and treatment. To continue offering this support in 2017, we still need funding. Every donation counts - even a small donation of 20 – 50 Euro can provide them with the medical attention they need to cope and recover from their pain and hardship. * One of our clients, a 25 year old woman, was suffering from goiter, a condition which causes an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid. As a result of this, she had difficulties in breathing and swallowing, oftentimes leaving her coughing at length and breathless. She would often jolt from sleep and was always nervous about not being able to do something very basic, that is, to breathe. As she was very poor and not able to support her treatment’s expenses, we supported her through her surgery after which, her nervousness, palpitation, shortness of breath and fatigue disappeared.“Now I feel better. I can easily communicate in society and I don’t feel ashamed. Before that I felt that everybody paid attention to my illness.”  The cost of her treatment was approximately US$300. * Another client was suffering from severe prolapsed uterus, a condition which causes the uterus to weaken and sag into the vagina. Provided she was client to another services of Medica Afghanistan, yet again we helped her for her treatment, because due to her tight economic condition she was not paying serious attention to her health situation. We urgently referred her for medical examination and a hysterectomy was performed on her. To support her, we helped to pay her laboratory tests and medicine at a private hospital, which amounted to approx. USD$120. * Another client, a survivor of violence, was suffering from severe back pain as a result of beatings. We referred her to a Japanese clinic for physiotherapy to manage her symptoms. After six sessions of physiotherapy, she no longer has pain in her back and is happy to be able to return back to her normal life and live free of pain. To support her, we helped to pay her physiotherapy sessions which amounted to approx. USD$40.We have also supported many other clients from funding their CT scan examinations to surgery and finally, ensuring they receive physiotherapy treatment so that they can completely recover post-treatment.Currently, we are seeking urgent funding for a number of our clients. One of our clients who is only 23 years old is suffering from congenital heart disease, which is defect in the heart structure. She has been treated at the French Medical Institute for Children in Kabul, Afghanistan. However, the doctors have recommended that she undergo further examination and treatment in India, where there are facilities and specialists to look into her specific condition.  We are currently looking for 1500 $ of funding of her trip to India so that she can obtain the initial treatment that she urgently needs to fully recover and return back to her normal life once again. Any contribution at all is valuable. Most survivors of violence who are brave enough to leave their homes and approach us for assistance

She keeps a smile on so no one can see how scared she is to lose her mum.Her grandad takes her horse riding when he can so that she can escape everything for a few hours. She gets a holiday in the summer with the young carers group but more than anything wants to spend summer with her mum like she used to. She watches every day knowing her mum needs life saving abroad and that the money is the only thing standing in the way of getting her mum back. Picture a few years ago before things got really bad.I have a rare condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) I need Life Saving Surgery because my spine is unstable and crushing my brainstem. I cannot turn my neck without partially dislocating it and the bottom of my brain has come out of my skull into the spinal canal. I can't even turn my head when Caityn says "mummy look at this" The surgery I need is not done in the UK for EDS patients and I need to raise funds to go to Barcelona. I have brainstem compression and  I need surgery to to make more space for my brain and to fuse my skull to my cervical spine. I can't leave the house unless it's serious and I forget more and more memories of fun days with my daughter because of the damage being done to my brain.In order to prevent lower limb paralysis I also need to have lower spinal surgeries. I want walk hand in hand with my daughter in the sunshine again, take her to the beach and watch her collect shells. The conditions I have are called Cranio Cervical Instability, Atlanto Axial Instability, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and others.  I want to see the pain disappear from her eyes because she can be a child again and I can look after her. I have life threatening conditions and without these surgeries that the UK cannot provide I am living on borrowed time until the next thing happens. I need to get these surgeries to be there for my daughter. I have to achieve this, theres no other hope now. I already suffer from sublaxations, blood pressure and heart issues, facial swelling and numbness, electric shocks, insomnia, muscle weakness and so much more. I need your help to beat this and live.The money raised will pay for surgery and the required hospital care in Barcelonas Hospital Teknon. Surgery for Ehlers Danlos Patients is generally not undertaken in the UK  and is not offered for Cranio cervical fusion. It is only available in the USA or Barcelona. The cost to have surgery in the USA is approximately $150,000 for one part, so I am lucky to have the opportunity of surgery with Dr Gilete in Barcelona. Your donations will help me to live and mean so much more than any words I can say but from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I will also post videos of me at the hospital before and after surgery so you can all see what your amazing donations have done for me . Stage one is £60,000 and is the sugery that will save my life. Stage 2 will secure the rest of my neck and Stage 3 will be my lower spine.

Nous parlons souvent, lors des créations d’entreprises, de prêts bancaires, prêts d’honneurs, crédits, ou autres. Et si nous changions les règles ? Après tout, je ne souhaite pas réellement plaire au banquier, ce qui m'interesse avant tous, c’est de vous plaire à vous. « La création de ce projet découle d’un voyage culturel en Australie pendant 2 ans.La politique de ce concept sera de vous offrir la plus belle façon de manger, découvrir une nouvelle culture, parce que l’Australie n’est pas seulement liée a des paysages à couper le souffle, elle est catégorisée par une générosité humaine, une ouverture d’esprit, un partage, une vie enrichissante et saine.L’Australie est également l’un des pays ou les fruits et les légumes sont sublimés par un amour de la terre et de la culture, ce que nous ne retrouvons pas forcement en France. Ce pourquoi je souhaite travailler directement avec les paysans / maraîchers de notre région, car le circuit court aujourd’hui est plus important. Ils sont souvent délaissés au détriment des grandes enseignes.Tout ce que vous serrez capable de retrouver dans ce projet sera inspiré de ce voyage, qui m’a permit d’avancer, et de vouloir créer » Les donations sont aujourd’hui ouvertes, elles seront anonymes, sauf dans le cas ou vous souhaitez échanger avec l’entreprise, ou je prendrais un grand plaisir à vous répondre et vous remercier.Par la même, je serais ravie de pouvoir, par la suite, garder les noms et prénoms (avec votre accord) des personnes m'ayant aidé à monter ce projet.Au delà de l’aspect financier, le coté humain sera gravé dans un « livre d’or » exposé en boutique dès son ouverture. Vous retrouverez une gamme "healthy" de smoothies, tartines, bagels. salades, granola, muesli.. Pensez une chose, même si vos dons n’excèdent pas 2 euros, ils seront très précieux à la réalisation de l’entreprise, et grâce a vous, nous pourrons ouvrir nos portes. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ When you’re one your way to create your business, we’re always speaking about bank loans.                              Look, what do you think if we’re changing rules? I don’t want to be loved by bankers, I want to be accepted from you. “This idea came from after 2 years in Australia.The politic of this concept's gonna be to offer you the best way to eat, lear a new culture, because Australia is not just some wonderful landscape, it’s categorized with a human generosity, free mind, sharing, enriching and healthy life.Under than that Australia it’s one of the country where you can find lots of natural fruits and veggies, that we don’t really have in France, because of the big brands.Everything you'll find in this concept come from this important and amazing Australian travel, and this gave me this strong mind to want to create my own business” Donations are going to be anonymous, but if you want to share anything with me, I’ll be happy to reply. More than that, I want to create a « gold book », I would love to put all names who helped me to open my business, so feel free to contact me. Think about something, even if it’s just 2 euros, that will be the most helpfull thing I never had before.  I worked hard in your country during 2 years, and now I want to share with all Frenchies how Australia is. I need your help to create my business in France!

Welcome to this money pot !This money pot has a special purpose... It was set up on behalf of a young, absolutely fabulous girl and her family.Her name is Dorota and she is 16 years old. Last year, just a week before her 'sweet 16', Dorota was seriously injured in an accident. She was hit by a train while passing a train track. Thankfully, she survived. However, since the accident Dorota has lost consciousness and does not respond to the surrounding world. Her family, and especially her older sister Beata who is also my dear lifelong friend, are doing everything possible to bring her back to reality, to make her smile again.  Dorota is currently in a clinic in Warsaw (Poland), which was set up for all children suffering from similar conditions, such as loss of consciousness, coma, autism, etc. The clinic supports her progress for a year now free of charge. However, she will soon have to leave and go back home as the clinic only offers one year of free stay and beyong that it is of significant cost. However, my friend Beata, decided not to give up and raise money so that her little sister can stay there for a bit longer or participate in other ways of therapy which will result in regaining consciousness. And I want to support her efforts. I have known that little girl since she was 4 years old and she is a wonderful human being, everyone who knows you can tell you that! Therefore, I ask you please, to help me.... It would mean the world to me if I could have even the tiniest impact on her recovery with your help. Therefore, please, help me to help them. They deserve it.Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
