Welcome to this money pot !The goal of AktivKidz is to get kids active! Some studies predict that our children will live a shorter life than us and that this is due to our inactive lifestyle. The same studies say that should our children live a longer life, their health will be poor again due to inactivity. Nearly 25% of teenagers in Luxembourg are overweight or obese and this is getting worse. We aim to get kids active by creating inclusive, participative and fun sporting events in school, at the weekend and in the holidays. We have kids running a marathon during the school year. We will once again do the family Tri4Life event in 2017. All kids can use this page to collect any onlone sponsorship money from friend and family. As a not for profit organisation, all our profits go to Lesotho in southern Africa where we work in conjunction with Kick4Life. Lesotho is a country that has the second highest prevalance of HIV in the world and over 25 % of kids have lost parents to HIV. Kick4Life is a charity devoted to social change in Lesotho. By using sport (football) they educate kids about HIV and offer free testing, counselling and ongoing support. They also help kids in Lesotho get active through sport. Click to make a contribution.

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.
Нам нужна ваша помощь! В 2006 году более 180 новорожденных были заражены вирусом ВИЧ по халатности врачей в больницах Южного Казахстана. Непроверенную кровь врачи покупали за бесценок в Узбекистане и продавали за хорошую цену в больницах Шымкента. За этот черный бизнес маленькие дети заплатили своими жизнями. Часть зараженных детей умерла, остальные живут и принимают лекарства каждый день, думая, что пьют витамины. Их иммуннаясистема очень слабая и они много болеют. Благодаря современной медицине, ВИЧ перестал быть приговором. Многие люди с вирусом иммунодефицита доживают до 50 лет. Но в Казахстане, как и во многих других развивающихся странах, к сожалению, такие люди и их семьи становятся изгоями общества, их выгоняют из школ, не берут на работу, люди их избегают. В этом году эти дети достигли возраста 11-12 лет, и настало время сообщить им об их болезни во время летних каникул... но как объяснить 11-летнему ребенку, что шанс на полноценную жизнь у него был отнят врачами-недоумками? К слову, главврачи этих трех больниц получили по 3 года условно. И все. В общем, этим детям и их родителям, большинство из которых находится в постоянной депрессии, срочно необходима психологическая помощь. Дети должны узнать, что они возможно, не смогут иметь семью и своих детей, и что их жизнь полна ограничений, и при этом не сойти с ума и не наложить на себя руки (такие случаи уже были). "А что же государство?" - спросите вы. Государство про них забыло. Чиновники ездят, по телевизору про них говорят (видео внизу), но, к сожалению, денег никто не дает. А практически все больные дети - это дети из бедных семей, из аулов под Шымкентом. Сейчас у нас главная цель собрать деньги на психологов, которых привезут из Петербурга, и организовать детям хоть какое-то развлечение в течении каникул. Если показать им, что жизнь продолжается, что мир прекрасен и необъятен, им будет легче принять свою болезнь. Сумма, которую запросил фонд, составляет £27,979. Часть этих денег уже была собрана благодаря мини-аукционам и частным пожертвованиям. Осталось собрать примерно половину. Мы будем очень благодарны любым суммам. Спасибо всем, кто не остался равнодушным! Ваши денежные пожертвования помогут подарить ребенку:£10 поход в бассейн£25 канцтовары для школы£50 консультация с психологом£100 консультация родителей и ребенка с психологом£150 поездка в Астану на EXPO 2017 на одного ребенка ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We need your help!In 2006 over 180 newborn babies got infected with HIV by the negligence of medical staff in the clinics of South Kazakhstan. Now, these kids reached the age (11-12) when their illness has to be disclosed to them, and they require psychological help to adapt to the news. Unfortunately, our government does not wish to support these children. You can check this story in the news, but it's only in Russian. With your donations, we can provide these children with psychological treatments and increase the quality of their lives during the adaptation period. For you donations we can provide a child with the following:£10 one swimming pool session;£25 one school stationery kit for a year;£50 one hour psychological session;£100 one hour one-to-one psychological session with parents and the child;£150 trip to Astana for EXPO 2017 per child.
Welcome to the Chiswick RFC London to Paris Bike Ride Donation PageA (semi) elite selection of players from Chiswick RFC have set themselves the challenge of riding from London to Paris which is a grueling 290 kilometres which they aim to complete with 3 days of constant riding (minus the odd sleep). We're doing this to raise funds for two causes dear to our hearts:1) The Royal Trinity Hospice, where one of Chiswick's former coaches Rocky Skinner spent his last days bravely battling cancer.2) The Chiswick RFC clubhouse, which, though steeped in charm and history, is in desperate need of some TLC! Any contribution will make a big difference and go a long way to helping The Royal Trinity Hospice and the club with some much needed funds.

Kitchen for homeless refugees and homeless locals in Thessaloniki, Greece.Our project is well established by now. We expanded our work. Kitchen now cooks 2 hot meals a day and distributes to streets and parks in Thessaloniki and to one of the camps nearby. Our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/dirtybunch/ is the best source of daily updates on our work. We are a small private group and cooperate with several groups in order to make our entire operation possible. Winter in Northern Greece is severe and there are still about 61.000 refugees in Greece. Small volunteer initiatives such as ours are flexible and adapt to daily needs quickly and efficiently. We are doing our best to cook on daily basis and the need is not smaller but bigger every day. Please support us with as much donation as you can afford. We can provide a hot meal for as little as 30 cents. And daily need is for 100-400 people. Food, water, sometimes sweets for kids :) Ok, so much for now. Thanks to everyone, thanks for helping us feed the people.

We are association of citizens Alfa from Belgrade and we have been taking care of abandoned dogs and cats for many years. We found homes for over 150 animals.We don’t have any means of financing except for good people who are helping us. Unfortunately, there is not enough of them and we find it hard to manage our expenses.At the moment we are raising money to pay for boarding houses for 20 dogs and one pig which costs about 650 euros, without the food. All the dogs in boarding houses were sick, hurt or taken from a shelter in order not to die there. Pig was save from floods in Obrenovac two years ago.Let me sort out some of them.Maki is a dog we found immobile in a ditch near the road. He had a broken spine and a bullet from a blowpipe. He is our miracle because he managed to walk in spite of that condition.We found Flekica (‘Little Stain”) as a puppy with the hard form of demodex (a skin condition).Vuka , Zuca , Brka , Viki , Pegica , Masa , Bleka , Pega , Meda , 3 Puppies , Stefi , Mirko , Crni , Milka , Lara , Flekica , Maki , Zuca2 , Cupko , Gile .We have more animals in foster homes , and we provide food for them.Therefore, we are addressing you with the pleading to help as much as you can. Out work is completely transparent, every dog can be seen and visited. Each of them deserves a chance to live, and we are asking you to help us provide them with that chance.Regarding our future plans, we need the money for sterilization of the dogs, in order to reduce the number of the dogs on the street. We need the money for the food for all the dogs we take care of. We need the money for paying veterinary expenses for the sick and injured dogs.If we had more means we could take care of more dogs and cats from the streets and find them real homes later on. We are very limited by the donations we raise through social networks, which are more than humble,so with your help we can do much more.
Welcome to this money pot !HISTORY1Kurshaid Nawab was born 1st March 1966 in a remote village called Tindrah in Khaniwal District Pakistan. Her family were poverty stricken and worked on the land they lived on.2Not long after her birth, relatives noticed she had a congenital eye condition which rendered her visually impaired. The condition was quickly spotted as her brother suffers from the same complaint.Her father, wishing the best for them, guided and protected them both as much as possible throughout his life. Her mother, equally concerned, ensured Kurshaid had a respectable Islamic upbringing for similar reasons.3Kurshaid could not attend school as there was nowhere locally that catered for her special needs.4Kurshaid acknowledges that while she lived with her parents, she was under no obligation to carry out house working tasks.Unsatisfied with this arrangement, Kurshaid proceeded to throw herself in to completing as much housework as she was able to do for her family, partly to keep up with contributions made by other members. She often recalls the intense anxiety experienced at night after a day’s work, when visiting the outside bathroom with her sisters, as she was unable to go safely independently due to her visual impairment.5During the early 1980’s, Kurshaid’s uncle, my father, visited Tindrah from the UK. Upon seeing his nephew and niece’s plight, he was emotionally moved such that he made arrangements to try and bring them back with him for possible treatment to improve their quality of life.6BACKGROUND Kurshaid finally came to the UK in 1986 and lived with her uncle, my father and our family which is when I first met her. She attended Southwark College London, where she learned English and a little braille. The more she learned, the more she empowered herself.7Since being acquainted with Kurshaid, I have perceived five fundamental characteristics inherent to her personality which preserved her wellbeing, such that at times it appeared that she lived the life of two people. These characteristics were: Zakat: Generosity, Kurshaid rightly felt we all have a duty to raise money for those less fortunate than ourselves, despite her own plight. To this end, she supported her own family, often sending clothes money or equipment for those she knew of who had special needs. Additionally, she often prompted us to collect our second hand clothes, shoes and money for UK charities frequently hurrying to get to collection points. Salat: continuing to pray five times a day no matter what, together with an acceptance that god knows best whatever happens in life and that we have little control over events. She lived by this mantra throughout her life. Gratitude. Kurshaid was grateful for everything, every day, from when she rose to when she slept. I believe this too contributed to her overall happiness and is an example to us all. Her mental and physical capacity. Kurshaid was steadfast in her Islamic beliefs. When faced with adversity, she prayed to Allah for help to either accept or change matters for the best. Kurshaid was also physically stronger than she appeared. She occasionally surprised us all by moving heavy cumbersome furniture independently when the need arose.These four characteristics when combined, produces a fifth. This is to care for anyone who were fortunate enough to cross her path.8MOTIVATION TO RAISE FUNDS Kurshaid nawab passed away after four anxious weeks in hospital on Thursday 9 March 2017. No one properly knows how much money she raised since 1986, as she never counted what she gave. We do know that it must have been significant. Kurshaid was very resourceful in completing her objectives and was relentless in this task since being in the UK.She leaves a wonderful twelve year old boy, Khalil and loving husband who now both have to learn to live without her.On 10 March 2017, the day of kurshaid’s Jannaza (funeral), those who attended, was testament to her astonishing personality.

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

Dear Sir or Madam I take part in Civil March For Aleppo, the March from Berlin to Allepo. March is to draw attention to the endless conflict in Syria. The idea is to draw attention to the inaction of the conflict. I thought, it's an amazing initiative. There are many opportunities to help but giving by marching all our time is something rare. It is is a great opportunity to make people realize that something is wrong. We watch the news on TV like a bombshell, not understanding and not feeling that people there are going through the worst nightmare of theirs life. I came on Dec. 26 at Templehof, the last day of Christmas. At the beginning I came only on the weekends because I was working. In January I decided to quit job go till the end of the March. I join the March in late January. In addition to marching, I support the March as best I can do what is a photography. My pictures were shown repeatedly during meetings in different countries. After the end of March I would like to publish a photo book of March as a group of people who decided to devote their time, quit their jobs and go on a long journey - in the act of pilgrimage to tell the world that we do not agree with indifference and inactionCivil March For Allepo doesn’t cover in full Marching. Mostly we don’t have to pay for accomodation but we have to pay for food. If you would like help me walking please donate Anybody who would like my pictures can get them in gratitude of donation, just writte to me to arrange delivery Pictures with stamp and signed My pictures on Instagram ryszardszpytmanorFacebook Best regardsRyszard Szpytman
Walk 1000 miles in one year? Why not!When Linda and Emma saw the #Walk1000miles challenge, they had the bright idea of using it to raise money for their local animal shelter based in SW France. Some of our other volunteers also thought they might like to join in too. Get fit, enjoy the countryside, walk some dogs, raise money ... it's a win-win!The Refuge de l'Angoumois is one of the largest shelters in France, accepting over 1000 animals a year. It exists only through the support of local community funding and donations. Having had one of the community funds cut for the foreseeable future to the tune of 25000€ a year, the budget is tighter than ever and depends more than ever on donations. Many times, money cannot help. It doesn't clean up dog poo very well. Its interest as a cat toy lasts only seconds. However, it can help fund staff, buy animal food and pay for veterinary care, the three biggest expenditures at the shelter. As the national austerity budget threatens to drag on for many more years to come, we need your help and your money to ensure our animals get the best care we can offer.

Thank you for visiting my page.In July I will be undertaking a 3 week unpaid volunteering project working on primate conservation in the amazon rainforest.I will be spending 3 weeks volunteering to help the scientists and conservationist from ARC Amazon, a non-profit organisation based in Peru. The objectives of the organisation are to "Increase the value of the amazon, to conserve and protect it, and to connect people with rainforests." As with lots of parts of the Amazon, the area I will be working in is under threat from logging industries and the growth of land for agriculture. As a result, many of the species native to the area are becoming increasingly under threat and closer to extinction. An example of one of these animals is the Peruvian black spider monkey (pictured). The organisation aims to protect this species of monkey, as well as 8 other endangered species by understanding the monkeys and making local communities and the rest of the world aware of the impact of them being wiped out. The research undertaken by the scientists working there helps Arc Amazon determine strategies for local conservationists in their aim to create a Biodiversity Corridor in an important river system in the north east of Peru on the border of Brazil and Bolivia. This local conservation will ultimately help conserve the species and environment in the Amazon, as well as protect the environment that the people who live and work there from illegal trade.I am a second-year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Bath with a strong interest in conservation. I have project led and participated in the Brecon Beacons National Trust volunteering residential undertaken by the university this year, and participated in it last year. I also have led other conservation activities with the National Trust in Bath and was nominated for the Bath Young Volunteer of the year award 2017. I enjoy adventures and being outdoors! The volunteering work that I will be involved with whilst I am there will include:* Following, observing and recording data about the wild monkeys.* Trekking through lowland Amazon rainforest in search of monkeys.* Recording and uploading data captured for analysis.* Assisting in the learning of the different monkey species and other fauna and flora species present in the monkey's habitat.* Helping protect the lands of the Indigenous people.I will also be witnessing first hand the deforestation, species loss and other threats to the rainforest as well as gaining an understanding of the successes and challenges of deforestation and thus be able to convey this message on my return. I would really appreciate it if you could help in this project by donating. It will really help with the vital research and assist in the conservation of the Amazon rainforest. As this is a volunteering trip, which is vital for the organisation as I am completely unpaid and have to pay the company to be there, I have to completely self-fund this trip. The money will be going towards paying for my food, water and travel whilst I am assisting the conservationists and scientists. Therefore your money will be going directly into helping conserve the Amazon and help everyone understand the amazing species of monkeys that live in the Amazon rainforest, so you will know exactly where your money is spent. Any money raised above the costs of participating in the projected will be donated directly to the organisation to help fund further research and conservation.Please click to make a contribution, or get in contact with me to learn more about the project, donate via paypal or bank transfer please email me at email@example.com.For more information on the charity, please visit http://conservetheamazon.org/arcamazon/#mission To read some of my blog posts about the species that I will be working with, check out my blog at: http://www.trottingtonsblog.com/category/blogs/amazon/

Namaste!On April 25, 2015 11:56am Nepal Standard Time (GMT +5:45), 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. It killed: 8,617 people and injured 16,808. It destroyed over 473,000 houses and displaced: 2.8 million. In my village nobody was killed but it left 8 houses totally damaged and 15 houses partially damaged, in its wake. There are 32 houses in the village. The village is in mid-western Nepal, about 300 km and 50km west, respectively, of Kathmandu and the epicenter Barpak, Gorkha.Currently, 50 people reside in the village. Majority of the inhabitants are the old, infirm, men, women and children. There are only 9 able bodied men among the fifty. About 75 people live outside the village – education, employment or simply looking for better life and greener pastures.The government survey team visited the village and provided few packets of noodles and a plastic 12ft x 12ft plastic sheets to the households whose houses had been completely destroyed. Now after 18 months, they have declared that no further help will be extended.In the villages, it is the practice that all houses are built without help of any modern technology or equipment. Everything is cut, dug and carried via manual labour. So it is quite cumbersome, time and energy consuming. Furthermore, it is practically impossible to repair certain part of the damaged houses as these houses have inter-locked walls and do not have pillars or beams. So if a section of the house is pulled down for repairs, the whole house will fall down. So we have decided to leave these damaged houses as they are.As it is not possible for the villagers to individually rebuild, the consensus has been reached that they will build a single house which will be used as the Disaster Relief Centre. It will also be used as meetings, storage, festivals and ceremonial venue. The villagers already possess enough large cooking utensils, plates, glasses, bowls etc. and traditional musical instruments which need to be stored and safeguarded. Besides, first aid kits, medical supplies, blankets, stretchers and non-degradable food grains, oil and salt will also be stored.To accomplish above, minimum of NRs. 1.5 mio (approx. USD 15K) is estimated. The villagers are confident that they can raise NRs. 500k plus provide voluntary labour (number of days for each household not decided yet).The reason we need to help these people is that they are living in constant fear. We all know that it does not need a quake of such magnitude as the last one to destroy their houses. It is the fear factor that we need to mitigate by providing them the psychological buffer that their needs have been taken care of in case of disaster. This would be extremely meaningful to them. Therefore, I sincerely request you all to chip in whatever you can and show “heart”. Your contribution of USD5.00 can employ an un-skilled labour for a day and by USD 100,00, a whole month. Your kind humanitarian gesture is highly appreciated.Should you have any queries please direct them to Shiva Gurung (email: firstname.lastname@example.org , cell no. +977-9841845841. with Viber and Whatsapp connection).Thank you. and god bless you.Shiva

Welcome To Habitat Run For Isla Fund Raising Page Fifteen Habitat employees are running the Standard Chartered City Run on the 24th July to raise money for Isla. This is a 5k run around the city of London amongst hundreds of other keen beans! You may be thinking that 5k isn't much of a challenge but it's in name of an amazing cause which affects one of our very own Habitatees.As well as running around the City of London, Habitat employees are baking, training, talking, balancing, bouncing, fighting and many more to raise funds and we would love your support. Please make any contribution you can via the link below and we'll keep you up to date with what we get up to and how much we raise. About Isla:Isla is a lively, happy little girl, playful and bubbly with a sweet nature and loves nothing more than playing with her twin sister. She loves being creative and adores anything pink, sparkly and cuddly, just like any other girl.Isla was diagnosed with ‘High Risk, Stage IV, Neuroblastoma’ on her 1st birthday in September 2016. Neuroblastoma is a rare and aggressive children’s cancer. Less than 100 children are diagnosed a year. So far, Isla has responded well to an extensive treatment regime including chemotherapy, high dose chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, several blood transfusions and radiotherapy. Isla has undergone many other of procedures, including major surgery and has gone through it all with a smile on her face. As you can imagine the treatments aren’t kind on such a little girl but she has made amazing recoveries and advances. Although surgery was successfully in removing the entire primary tumour (Isla had 4 tumours in total) on top of her right kidney, Isla still needs immunotherapy at Great Ormand Street Hospital until the end of the year, which is hoped, will bring her into remission. Unfortunately, Isla’s cancer is especially susceptible to a relapse. Whilst the prospect of a relapse is extremely real for Isla, Rick (Isla's father) and his family remain ever positive and prepared to fight. High-risk neuroblastoma has a high rate of relapse, and the survival rate for relapsed neuroblastoma is very low, currently only 1 in 10 children survive. Relapsed neuroblastoma is particularly challenging to treat and there are limited options; all of which exist in the form of clinical trials in New York. Rick and his family have chosen for Isla, along with the amazing Great Ormand Street Hospital, to access a clinical trial, in the hope of preventing a dangerous relapse. Accessing a clinical trial in New York is not NHS funded and will cost £190K just to take part. This is an overwhelming amount of money to raise so Habitat helping to with some fund raising activties including the run to raise as much money as possible to towards this incredible cause. Should Isla not require the treatment after successful remission the money will go towards the organisations that supported Isla throughout her treatment and other children like Isla. Thank you!
