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

Nepal Vocational Training Project

Nepal Vocational Training Project

Our dear friend Tirtha Poudel has asked us to help organize the funding for a project focusing on vocational training in Nepal and we are more than happy to help. Our aim is to raise £5,200, to pay for twenty young Tharu men and women (a low caste, poor indigenous ethnic group) to receive vocational training over a three month period. The training in the Bardia region will cover building, plumbing, electrics, carpentry and vegetable farming. 100% of the money raised will be used in the training and eventually the project will be expanded to fund 100 young people. So, we need your help to raise this money. Any amount would be hugely appreciated and all contributions will go directly to the people where it's so desperately needed. Employment Issues in Nepal. Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries. A high proportion of young people struggle to find work in Nepal and if they do their wages are so low because they don’t have the necessary skills. Every day between 1000 and 1500 young people from Nepal travel overseas to work in the Gulf. Many are unskilled workers and receive very low pay, living in poor conditions. Vocational training in Nepal is vital for young people however they often don’t have the resources to fund it. Many young Tharu people have never had the opportunity to have an education or gain necessary vocational skills. The aim of this project is to provide 20 young men and women (eventually expanded to 100 participants) with basic vocational training in building, plumbing, electrics, carpentry and vegetable farming over a three month period. Participants will be selected from various villages in the Bardia region and at least 10 villages will be covered. Training will be focused on those young people who have had to drop out of school due to financial problems. The cost of training will be £260 per person for three months. This includes the training equipment, protective clothing, stationary, trainers’ fees and the rent for the training venue. Once participants have received their training, they should be able to find work as skilled labour in their respective areas and will be less likely to need to travel overseas to find work. For those who do want to travel abroad they will also find themselves in a better position to receive higher wages. Tirtha is working with a number of local and reliable Non-Governmental Organisations:  * Partnership for Sustainable Development (PSD) will assist with the financial administration and monitoring on a voluntary basis;  * Local community groups will also support the project * Local cooperatives will provide soft loans for participants on completion of the project to help buy necessary equipment for their professional work All the money we raise will go towards the vocational training project. Our Connection with Nepal Twenty years ago I travelled to Nepal as a gap year student to participate as a volunteer for an environmental charity. Fellow friends in this group have also volunteered in Nepal over the past 15 years. My experience of the country, the mountains, the culture and above all it's wonderful, open and honest people has remained with me ever since. I witnessed at first hand, the impact that direct funding had on providing remote communities with not only resources to build their own facilities, whether it be deep water wells, pit latrines or smokeless stoves but also training in vocational skills for the future. This is why we are asking for a pledge from you. I’ve decided to head to Nepal again next year to monitor the progress of the project and prior to this I want to help by raising money for a grass roots vocational training project. I know 100% of the money raised will go to the project. What we’d like you all to do is PLEDGE & SHARE this request for help. SHARE it with your friends, your family, your colleagues, and your neighbours, anyone who might be willing to donate so that 20 people, a world away, can start learning a trade and vocation for life.PL

TRIBUTE TO A ROHINGYA REFUGEE

TRIBUTE TO A ROHINGYA REFUGEE

Who are we? The 1000 Village Project campaign is in partnership with the French NGO Solidarite Sans Frontiere (Solidarity Without Borders) and aims to rehabilitate Rohingya refugees in Malaysia fleeing from persecution. The Rohingya people are often said to be amongst the worlds most persecuted minority, comprising of up to 100,000 of all Malaysian refugees. Having being denied Burmese citizenship under the 1982 Citizenship Law in Myanmar, the Rohingya people are left stateless and lost for identity. However, their challenge does not end there. Despite escaping immediate genocide, living in fear remains a constant reality for the Rohingya people, and the threat of losing their livelihoods continues to resonate. In Malaysia today, these refugees are refused the right to an education, are not allowed to work legally and are often the targets of vicious organ harvesting attacks. They are left helpless with no one to care or listen. What we do: The 1000 Village Project aims to provide a sustainable future for refugees fleeing persecution to Malaysia, and is currently developing a detailed strategy to create a permaculture which will conquer the cycle of persecution and dependence, presenting the opportunity for self-sufficiency. Despite being provided refugee cards by the United Nations High Comission for Refugees (UNHCR), the Rohingya people are forbidden by law to work and are denied their personal autonomy. Without the ability to work, these refugees cannot break out from persecution and reinstate a sense of independence.  Our Solution In addressing the issue, our Project will focus directly on affording these refugees the opportunity to live self-sufficiently, in a way in which they can grow their own crops, build infrastructure for the village and actively participate at school to learn life skills. We will immediately buy land and provide the refugees with basic living necessities, before gathering with volunteers from all around the world to build a village of ten houses to accommodate the Rohingya peoples. We are inspired to expand our vision, building subsequent villages systematically to mitigate the current situation and cease such societal inequities. The permastructure will also include sustainable solutions such as waste management, energy production, rainwater harvesting, and vernacular concepts that take into consideration the refugees' culture, religion and tradition. THE STORY OF ABDULLAH  One of the refugees who I have tried to help, and whom I have spent a lot of time with passed away a few weeks ago. I wish to build a first village for the maximum number of families before the end of the year as a tribute to his memory. Abdullah was 20 years old in 2014 when the Myanmar army raided his village. His parents told him to flee with his two siblings - a younger brother and sister .His brother was shot by the military that same day. Abdullah fled in the jungle with his sister who died after a few days from starvation.Abdullah had to leave his sister's body in the jungle and continue walking. His parents asked him to go to the harbor and find smugglers to go to malaysia .After reaching the harbor and finding the smugglers, he realized that he didn’t have enough money to have a place in a boat.Desperate, he decide to use the most common, cheapest way to escape; another kind of boat where peope can board with a third class ticket.This means that he got on a boat which stored fish. Under the fish, they smuggled drugs. Under the drugs, they smuggled people. For 4 months, Abdullah rode on this crowded boat. There was a very limited supply of clean water and food. After over one hundred days on this boat, they reached South Kuala Lumpur.After this long journey and few weeks on this promised land, he was arrested by immigration , put in jail for 2 years. In jail he was abused in countless ways. He was beaten up, had cigarettes extinguished on his skin, and more.Once he was finally out , he started his process with the UNHCR

ALIVE PROJECT

Icarus dance company is in need of your support! Follow our story on Icarus by Natalia Skarpeta on Fb and help us by sharing our journey and contributing! Every little helps!To follow our journey :https://www.facebook.com/natskar/To find out more: https://nat-skar.wixsite.com/nataliaskarpeta "One day your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching." The newly founded  Dance group Icarus is working on the new project "Alive" : an innovative project dedicated to the  "dance for social change" movement. I (as the choreographer) am personally invested in activism and my work is my way into taking a small step to change this world and our society for the better. Every project is supporting a special cause, issues that need to be faced or charity. ALIVE is in support of the homeless, so part of the funds that we will raise will go to the national charity Crisis.uk in hope to change some people's lives. So if you are in need of some good karma help us to help the world!  The  team is consisted of  professional dancers, versatile and with strong technique. We are very passionate about what we do and we strive for excellence so with your support we will be sure to deliver! Your funds will go to studio space, dancer's pay (for rehearsals and performance), customes/props and theatre hire, so technically you will become our producers! And you are sure to get VIP seats on opening day which is soon to be confirmed!  “Alive” is built around the journey of self-discovery and the inner search for what really matters in life in order to be truly alive. The dancers  will embody and express all the barriers (physical and emotional) that prevent people from living their lives whether by getting into a primitive state or by facing their truths and breaking stereotypes and society's standards. You only live once, so make sure you LIVE IT! Using contact, Laban’s movement analysis and improvisation techniques Icarus company  will explore and build movement which will utilize the dancers’ skills to the maximum.  The role of an artist is to speak a universal language, which everyone at every corner of the world understands and connects to. I am passionate about activism through dance because people most of the time forget their power and they are too scared or too comfortable to stand up and have their voice heard. There is nothing to lose but there is everything to lose if you are not active and aware. You have to look into the future and think- how do you want the future to be instead of waiting to be told what is going to happen. Environment, social media, wars, irresponsible governments, diversity, humanity, culture...it's time to shape our own future.   For the amount of £5 ( the price of your tall starbucks coffee!) you can help us bring our show to life and give a group of passionate young dancers the opportunity to work on something we have worked our whole lives really hard for. Your funds will cover the cost of our rehearsals and show: studio: £1,110- £1,500dancers ( pay- rehearsals and show): £ 2,130theather: £ 500props: £ 50costumes: £600video/projections: £200extras ( technicians, dress rehearsal, lights, etc) : £1,000marketing, tickets, posters, flyers, emergency costs, etc: £ 1,000Total: £ 6,980All donators will be publicized on our official page and on the flyer.Donations of £200 and over: You will get exclusive access to our rehearsals before the release date, so you get to experience the magic before anyone else! 5 Highest donors will get free Vip tickets on our debut night!  Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!

James' Wish

James' Wish

Welcome to James' WishJames' story.On the 5th July 2016, our precious little boy James William Sessnon was born prematurely at 29 weeks. James was a miracle, he fought against all the odds just to be born. When 20 weeks pregnant an routine scan shown there was a problem, what we didn’t realise at that time is that what had started as an enjoyable pregnancy was to become a race against time and the odds just to say hello to our little boy. The Sonographer had picked up the fact that James didn’t appear to be growing, and there appeared to be very little fluid in the amniotic sac, we were immediately referred to see a Fetal Medicine Specialist Consultant. After a further scan the most likely cause we were given was Triploidy, a condition in which a child has three full set of chromosomes, and is fatal.We were given the option of a termination or an amniocentesis, we weren’t ready to say goodbye. After an arduous wait of seven days we got the results of the test, and the good news was genetically, he was fine. Our boy had a chance. What James was diagnosed with was a severe case of IUGR - Inter Uterine Growth Restriction - which was caused by placental insufficiency. With this condition the placenta could fail at any time and at such time James would have to be born, whether we were ready or not.We were at this stage offered a place on a medical trial which was aimed at lengthening the gestation period as much as possible, allowing James to grow and give him the best chance at survival, we didn’t need convincing, our Son was going to be born. The trial was funded by a neonatal research charity called ‘Tommy’s’, without them we are certain James would have died in utero. With the trial came scans every two days, these were needed as the placenta had a 48 hour period of dying, we were relying on the knowledge of strangers to tell us when the best chance of survival would come, thankfully these strangers became friends. Sunday 3rd July became that day, we went to the scan as always, hopeful and cheerful, and quite quickly we were told, now was the time. We had to go home, get our things together and arrive at St. Mary’s the next day, Marie had to undergo a number of medical procedures to aid with the best possible chance of James survival, Tuesday was going to be an emotional day.James didn’t want to wait to long, and at 10:45am he was born via emergency C section and weighing a tiny 1lb 2oz, he was taken to the NICU - Neonatal Intensive Care Unit - at St. Mary’s, this is truly an amazing place, an emotional place where heroes work tirelessly 24 hours a day to look after people they have never met, and to try and make happily ever afters. Meeting him for the first time gave us a sight of true courage and strength, in an incubator surrounded by flashing lights, sounds and machines was our son, James. The sight of just how small he was, was something not many were prepared for, we knew then, this was going to be an emotional roller coaster, a rocky road where we would truly need each other, our families and again the help of strangers. Our first meeting with James doctor was full of ups and downs, he was happy with his breathing and the inflation of his tiny lungs, and was also happy that he was trying to move around. But he wasn’t so happy at the amount of blood they were having to give James, it had to be going somewhere. We found out it was a bleed on his brain. Nothing can prepare you for this news, the news that the already extremely hard fight was now made all the more difficult. We were made aware that should James pull through, and the doctors always made it clear ‘should’ being the big word, that he would suffer some forms of physical and mental difficulties, these we can deal with, we can prepare for, no parent can prepare for the imminent loss of their child. Sunday 10th was a sunny afternoon, and an afternoon full of happiness, we had James christened. Our Uncle Brian led the service, he is a minister, and the doctors and

Apportons notre aide aux réfugiés Rohingyas

Apportons notre aide aux réfugiés Rohingyas

Plus d'un demi-million de réfugiés Rohingyas ont quitté leur pays, la Birmanie, fuyant ce que l'ONU qualifie aujourd'hui d'épuration éthnique perpétrée par l'armée et le gouvernement Birman. Ils sont regoupés actuellement dans des camps dans le sud du Bangladesh dans des conditions précaires. De nombreux organismes travaillent jours et nuits pour répondre a leurs besoins les plus fondamentaux ; se nourrir et se soigner.  La communauté Française du Bangladesh, dont nous faisons parti, se sent concernée par les événements terribles atteignant la population Rohingya et voudrait apporter son soutien aux organisations en place.  Un groupe de volontaires s'est rendu sur place du 29 Septembre au 1er Octobre afin de distribuer les premières rations de nourriture achetées grâce aux dons de la communauté d'expatriés du Bangladesh. Nous lançons cette cagnotte pour que nos amis, familles, collègues et connaissances puissent participer. Cet appel aux dons servira à financer les prochaines distributions de nourriture et de médicaments que nous ferons sur le terrain. Pour suivre ces actions sur le terrain et vos contributions nous avons créé une page Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HelpRohingyas/ 10€ représente 22kg de riz soit 132 repas. (Le prix d'un kilo de riz est 0,45€). -- ENGLISH --This weekend, the UN announced that more than 500,000 Rohingya refugees have now arrived in Bangladesh. The situation is set to continue until a solution is reached by the international community. A team of 9 people went to the Southern part of Bangladesh to assess the situation, and to volunteer help with a Turkish organisation, TIKA.  We visited the Balukhali Camp, which was established in February. It stretches as far as the eye can see, and officially has welcomed over 24,000 people. Roughly 1000 refugees arrive every day. At the moment, the camp is quite well organised, largely thanks to the help of the Bangladeshi army who are present in the camp. Organisations rotate in providing medical care, basic necessities, food and toys. Men, women and children wait hours to receive this assistance. The French community of Bangladesh wants to continue to help. Winter is coming, and the needs of these refugees will be even greater. We have set up a donations link to enable our families, friends and colleagues to participate. This fundraising appeal will be used to buy food and medicines that we will distribute directly among the Rohingya community.  To follow our actions on field and your contributions you created a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HelpRohingyas/ 10€ represent 22kg of rice which means 132 meals.

Improving water supply at Uganda Pioneers’ Association Volunteers’ Guesthouse

Improving water supply at Uganda Pioneers’ Association Volunteers’ Guesthouse

Welcome to this money pot !UGANDA PIONEERS’ ASSOCIATION ​PROJECT TITLEImproving water supply at Uganda Pioneers’ Association Volunteers’ Guesthouse at Nansana, Wakiso District, Uganda. ABOUT THE ORGANIZATIONUganda Pioneers Association (UPA) is humbly seeking cordial support for raising 2000€ for improvement of water supply at the volunteers’ guesthouse in Nansana, ochieng zone, Wakiso district, Uganda. This organization is a youth voluntary non-governmental organization registered with the national NGO-Bureau. Since 1989, UPA has continued to offer the youth with the opportunity to contribute to community development through voluntary work which is realized through workcamps and international volunteer exchanges.With the motto “Together we shape the future”, UPA believes that involving youth can make a difference in the development of the local communities, enrich them with new skills for self-reliance and creating mutual understanding and intercultural learning. CHALLENGESUPA guesthouse is the home for international volunteers from where they live as they serve on the various community projects for weeks, months or even a year. The guesthouse has been existence since 1990’s. Due to the increasing number of international volunteers at this facility, the water supply cannot meet their demands hence the plan to overhaul the water supply system at the guesthouse by installing new water reservoirs for consistent and efficient water supply at the guesthouse for the good of the volunteers. Currently, the guesthouse accommodates a maximum of 30 volunteers and are faced with a problem of unreliable water supply from the public service provider. With the current water inadequacy, volunteers cannot have enough water for cooking, shower, laundry and general cleaning at the guesthouse and such a condition makes volunteers unhealthy.picture: a recent tank for 30 volunteers. SOLUTION​UPA has planned to acquire two new water tanks with a capacity of 4000 litters which are 500€. 550€ for tank stand. 450€ for Materials and 500€ for labor.

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

PsyClean Crew needs a wind- and waterproof area!After 5 years of working in the field, endless efforts to install tarps to keep the crew dry and warm, we're now looking forward to The Dome. This star-tent will be the centre of our community, a dry and cosy space for our eco-warriors. About the projectThe PsyClean Crew is a volunteer-based initiative aiming towards more environmental awareness on open-air events. By involving "regular" festival visitors, we're inviting them to a life-changing journey. Here they face the other side of a commercial event, gain some ecological sensitivity and get the chance to work as a team fuelled by love and acceptance. It is our hope, that this knowledge is then shared with their friends –  also "regular" visitors – and together we can create a critical mass of conscious and respectful festival visitors.The PsyClean Crew has worked on almost 30 festivals, involving more than 350 volunteers, who have dedicated their time and energy to stand up for the greener future, regardless of the atmospheric conditions, repeatedly and many times.Now we'd like to award their contribution with a 100% waterproof and cosy community tent. As a project we can't afford to buy The Dome without the help of You. About The DomeOur new community area will provide dry seating spots for ~80 volunteers. We'll equip it with carpets, bean-bags, shoe cases, coat hangers/dryers and a small tea/coffee station, where they can always grab a warm drink. It will be illuminated with solar-powered lights. It will be a perfect space to rest after working hard in the field. :-) Please meet The Dome!All the sides can be closed with zipped walls if needed for better wind/water protection.  We've already received a price offer for The Dome from the local factory in Poland, the closest manufacturer to our location. Our crowd-funding goal represents this price offer plus the campaign costs. Click to make a contribution.* Give what you can.* All payments are secureThank you!The PsyClean Crew
