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

Cancer Survivor

Cancer Survivor

Hallo German version - please scroll down to see the English Version WIE MICH DER KREBS NOCH STÄRKER MACHTE!  Der Schock saß tief! Endlich hatte ich meine längst vergessenen sportlichen Fähigkeiten wiederentdeckt, und mein Körper schenkte mir durch Bewegung zusätzliche Lebensfreude, da kamen zunehmend für mich völlig unbekannte Schmerzen. Im Rücken fingen sie an. Monatelang rannte ich von Arzt zu Arzt, von Chiropraktikter zum Osteopathen und dann irgendwann kam sie - die Gewissheit: Brustkrebs mit Ausstrahlung in die Knochen. Obwohl der Ultraschall unauffällig war, hatte ich den Knoten im November bereits gespürt – dennoch dauerte es bis Februar, bis die Diagnose endlich da war.Die Diagnose war das schlimmste, was mir passieren konnte. Doch habe ich von Anfang an beschlossen, dass ich mich von dieser Krankheit nicht unterkriegen lasse. Was tun, welche Möglichkeiten habe ich? Fragen über Fragen! Seit über 7 Jahren lebe ich schon glücklich und zufrieden in meiner neuen Heimat, meiner großen Liebe, in Kapstadt. Letztes Jahr wurde diese durch die perfekte Symbiose aus Leben und Arbeiten gekrönt - mit einem wunderschönen Appartement direkt am Meer. Meine selbständige Tätigkeit als Coach macht mir riesigen Spaß, denn ich tue das, was ich schon immer tun wollte: Menschen helfen, sie beraten, unterstützen, Visionen aufzeigen, begleiten – ich zeige Menschen dass alles auf dem Weg ist und nicht im Weg! Und nun das! Nun war und bin ich an dem Punkt, an dem ich fremde Hilfe in Anspruch nehmen musste und muss. Ich bin aus tiefstem Herzen dankbar für all die Hilfe und Unterstützung, die ich in jedweder Form von Familie, Verwandten, Freunden und Ärzten erhalten habe.Meine onkologische und sonstige medizinische Behandlung hier in Kapstadt ist hervorragend; ich fühle mich mehr als gut aufgehoben und beraten, die positiven Fortschritte und Rückmeldungen meines Körpers sprechen eine eindeutige Sprache! Bereits vor langer Zeit habe ich mir den Leitsatz meines Uropas "Sepp" zu eigen gemacht: "Der Optimist ist der beste Mist"! Und deshalb möchte ich meine Krankheitsgeschichte auch für andere als positive Erfolgsgeschichte aufarbeiten, dokumentieren und für möglichst viele persönlich Betroffene als Inspiration und Kraftquelle veröffentlichen: WIE BESIEGTE ICH MEINEN KREBS Bereits jetzt, während meiner aktuellen Tätigkeit als Coach, die ich aktuell zwar reduziert, aber dennoch aktiv durchführe, habe ich von einigen Klienten erfahren, dass sie ein ähnliches Schicksal wie ich durchlebt haben! Dies hat mir zusätzlich Kraft und Anreiz gegeben, mein lange begonnenes Vorhaben schnellstmöglich voranzutreiben und umzusetzen! Da zur Umsetzung dieses Vorhabens leider auch erhebliche finanzielle Mittel z.B. für Videoaufnahmen, Dokumentation und Aufzeichnungen erforderlich sind und werden, habe ich nach Rücksprache mit meiner Familie, Bekannten und Freunden hier dieses Spendenkonto eingerichtet. Jegliche finanzielle Unterstützung hierfür wäre eine riesige Erleichterung für mich. Egal in welcher Form Ihr mich unterstützt oder unterstützen werdet, ich bedanke mich bereits im Voraus recht herzlich hierfür. Und für alle unter Euch, die ebenfalls direkt oder indirekt mit einer brutalen Krankheit kämpfen oder in einer anderen, schwierigen Lebenssituation stecken:Denkt an das alte und teilweise in Vergessenheit geratene Sprichwort: "Und denkst Du auch es geht nicht mehr, kommt von irgendwo ein Lichtlein her" In diesem Sinne weiterhin viel Spaß, Erfolg Zufriedenheit im Leben wünscht Euch Jenny  English Version:  HOW CANCER MADE ME STRONGER! I was in deep shock! Finally, I had rediscovered my long-forgotten sporting abilities, and my body gave me additional joy through movement and suddenly I was in increasing pain I had never experienced before. It started with my back. For months I visited doctor after doctor, from chiropractor to osteopath, from pillar to post; and eventually I had certainty: Breast cancer that had spread into my bones.

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!

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

Bienvenue ! Je me présente, je m'appelle Camille. J'ai 21 ans. Je suis la fille de Véronique. J'ai crée cette cagnotte car j'ai besoin de vous. Ma maman est atteinte d'un cancer à l'estomac depuis mars, et pour cause de "non-respect" des heures minimales demandés elle n'a pas le droit aux indemnités journalières. On a pû à peu près vivre correctement jusqu'au mois de septembre grâce à l'argent que ma grand-mere nous avait légué à sa mort (elle est décédée deux semaines avant qu'on apprennent le cancer). Depuis un mois 1/2 ma maman est hospitalisé car en plus du cancer, les médecins lui ont diagnostiqué une méningite. Au cours de cette hospitalisation, elle c'est étouffée en mangeant et est tomber dans le coma pendant plus de 12 heures. En se réveillant, elle était branchée de partout car elle ne pouvait pas respirer ni manger par elle-même. Elle est sortie de réanimation il y a 2/3 jours mais elle est encore très faible. Durant la toute première hospitalisation, la mutuelle c'était arrêter en plein milieu et donc l'hôpital lui demande de payer (ce qu'elle ne peut pas). Ma sœur et moi-même (Camille) vivions avec elle dans une maison où elle est propriétaire. On a du faire des travaux d'urgence pour ne pas qu'elle tombe en ruine (mais elle ne peut plus les payer). J'ai un travail mais jai à peine de quoi nourrir ma famille, c'est pour cela que je demande votre aide. Cela fait deux mois que l'électricité ne passe pas et j'ai peur qu'il nous le coupe. La facture de télé/téléphone n'est pas passé non plus, avec en prime son assurance de retraite. J'ai vraiment besoin de votre aide. Ne serait-ce que 5€ pourrait nous aider.

Je déteste me voir en tant qu'homme, la société le fait assez. Bien sûr, je travaille, je travaille beaucoup, je travaille toutes les nuits sauf les dimanches pour avoir un peu de repos. Et j'ai un travail difficile. Mais même si je travaille autant, je ne peux pas vivre décemment. Parce que comme tout le monde, j'ai aussi beaucoup de choses à payer ... Alors, aidez-moi à devenir une vraie femme. J'en ai besoin. S'il vous plaît. S'il vous plaît aidez-moi à me sentir enfin vivante, merci beaucoup si vous m'aidez et si vous ne pouvez pas contribuez, pouvez-vous partagez la cagnotte, s'il vous plaît ? Celapeut quand même m'aider ! Merci beaucoup ! Elise.

Help Ania fight off the cancer

Help Ania fight off the cancer

"Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible."I have decided to create this Money Pot to help my friend Ania, who is battling cancer metastasis. Ania is 40-year-old mum of two (13 and 3), loving wife and a good friend. But life wasn't too gracious for her. In 2014 she lost her mother due to cancer. Month after her mum's funeral Ania was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy, then mastectomy of right breast and radiotherapy with hormone therapy.In July 2015 cancer was defeated. She couldn't have been much happier. But her happiness had lasted for about one year only. In November 2016 she was told about metastasis to bones (left hip, pelvis on the right side, ribs on both sides, spine). And her battle with cancer had started again...Ania is very determined to fight it off, because she has very important reasons to live. Unfortunately conventional medicine is not able to help her, only to ease the pain with some strong drugs. But... There is a chance to cure Ania with intravenous infusions of vitamin C. Unfortunately 6-month treatment costs about £9,000 (one year costs £18,000!). It's not covered by NHS. To get this kind of treatment she has to travel abroad. It's very expensive, but it's the only hope for her and her family.Hope is the last thing to be lost. We can't lose it. If we lose hope, we lose everything. That's why Ania needs your help. Without this money she is not able to undergo the treatment which may save her life.Please remember one thing, helping Ania you are giving her sons hope that they will still have their mum...Every penny counts. Give however much you want.Thank you!If you wish to contact Ania, you can find her on Facebook: Anna Piżewska. With love,Edythe
