To get visitors back and foster employment on the island, replanting along the beaches and the roads is crucial. * The project is supported globally by St Barths lovers and executed locally by people with a proven track record of delivering on environmental projects on the island (For instance, Didier Laplace of Coastal Restoration St Barth). * Green StBarths is working under the advice of the local environmental authorities (Agence Territoriale de l'Environnement) to plant on species endemic to the island and safe for the local animals. * The money collected will be used in 2 ways:* Giving St Barths its alluring beaches back by planting smaller trees and plants that can stabilize the sand dunes. We will also only select plants that make it possible for turtles to lay their eggs on our beaches. Thus, we are using local knowslege and scientific studies to select the right plants.* Giving St Barths landscapes and roads their allure back by replanting hedges that were dotting the island. Locals and visitors enjoy the charm and the privacy that natural hedges of small local trees give to the roads and neighborhoods of the island.* This is a French non-profit, located in St Barths, and certified by the local authorities ("Collectivite de Saint Barthelemy) as part of the non-profits officially endorsed and superviced to be part of the post hurricane Irma relief effort.

The Race That Counts A famous ultra runner once said to me “you have to go for the race that counts”. Two years ago, on a holiday in France, I found that race – the UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc). 171km and 10,300 metres of ascent (and descent – there aren’t many flat parts on this run!), 46.5 hours cut off time and two nights of running, following the Tour de Mont-Blanc hiking path through the Alps in France, Italy and Switzerland. * 2 years of preparation* Over 2,000 training miles* 4 qualifying races (1x50 miles, 2x100 miles and 1x110 miles)* And many glasses of wine I had to say no to! And I now have a place in the UTMB 2018! :-) I decided to run the race for charity. The race means everything to me but running it for charity makes it so much more important. Please support me and the two amazing organisations I am raising funds for: * The Motor Neurone Disease Association - this is for my dear friend Mike Crisp and his family. Mike – you are one of the bravest people I know. I admire how you embrace life. * The Ultra Sports Science Foundation – they do some fantastic research for the very sport I love and they are the organisation that is giving me the place in the UTMB. Thank you. Now all I have to do is train for the race… Thank you for your support! Svenja
Welcome to this money pot !Eleanor was diagnosed with bone cancer and, sadly, at the beginning of October 2017, had to have part of her leg removed. Throughout the whole of the ordeal, Eleanor and her family have been incredibly brave in how they have dealt with the news and we wanted to help them out in any way we can. So, to support Eleanor and her family, a few of us have decided to hold a ‘charitable’ year of fundraising to assist with this transition, to run from November 2017 to November 2018. We are hoping to hold a different, exciting event every month for the whole year. This will start with a raffle next month, where winners will be able to claim some fantastic prizes, in addition, there will be various challenges undertaken where sponsorship will be sought. For the slightly less energetic, a summer tea party is also planned. The fundraising year will culminate in November 2018 with a grand ball. Any further support would be greatly appreciated and if you have any further ideas, or are already doing something and are looking for a charitable cause to link this to, please consider using Think Pink for Eleanor Be warned though, as the title suggests there will be lots of pink involved……..and sparkles and glitter!
Please Help Tim Sears Fight Cancer Hello. Meet Tim Sears. Pictured with his two daughters Many of you reading this will already know Tim. Tim lives in the county of Shropshire in England. His Job as a Truck Driver is to deliver life to people. Yes. You and me ! Tim is one of those anonymous people who has spent most of his life delivering other people's promises. Making daily deliveries of food and supplies that keep our country running every day. But there's a problem; Tim is suffering from cancer. He has a Type 4 Melanoma. This has spread to some of his internal organs. He has just begun, as of December 2017. Treatement to preserve his life. His condition is incurable, but it it may be possible to extend his life with the use of drugs. This means he is unable to work Tim is currently 49 years old. He is a proud father to his three children.Joshua,Chloe and Jasmin. He lives on his own. He currently survives with support from friends and family. He should have everything to live for. But like so many others, he is blighted by this terrible disease. He truly, tries to make the best of every day. He tries hard to face up to his situation and remain positive. His fight with cancer is ulimately a matter between him and his doctors. There is nothing really that anyone can do to change it. I am making this request in the hope. That with your help and generosity. We can raise enough money for Tim to be able to afford to live, while he is receiving treatment . He currently is only entitled to £79 per week to live on in Income Support . That's what he is entitled to under the British Welfare System £79 UK Pounds = $ 105.00 US Dollars or 89.27 Euros ( Dec 2017) Herein Lies The Problem; Currently. £79 per week. Is barely enough to feed one person, never mind pay the rent on his home or keep up with his financial commitments. It is not enough to help him support his young family. It is not enough to let Tim afford to keep a car on the road or fund him for his regular visits to hospital for treatment. This involves regular 80 mile round trips to hospital, sometimes more than once a week. I have known Tim for about six years. I know him to be a big personality and lovable friendly man, with a big heart. I admire him greatly for his commitment to his young family. I know that Tim worships his three children. It would be great to help Tim with his financial problems. So that while he is undergoing painful and disruptive treatment.The one thing that he does NOT have to worry about is lack of money. My aim is try and substitute Tim's usual income for at least the next six months and maybe beyond as circumstances dictate. I am hoping to raise £ 10,000 in that time. So that financially. Tim can live life without worrying about how he can afford it. I know that this is a lot ask. But it will only give Tim the equivalent of a very basic wage for the next six months. Is it too much to ask ? It could easily be YOU or ME in this situation. Wouldn't it be nice if we had support in our time of need ? THIS IS TIM'S TIME OF NEED - HE NEEDS OUR HELP. NOW Please help me, to help my friend Tim. So that he can concentrate on coping with cancer and NOT have to worry about being able to afford to live. Thank you for reading. Please contribute if you can. All contibutions will go directly to Tim. If you can't contribute. Please share this post among as many people as you can. We are very grateful to you.

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
Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you! The juvenile black storks have left home. Where are they now? The Eagle Club of Estonia has ten years experience of streaming Black Storks' nest life online (since 2007). An ever-increasing fan club has grown during that time and every year new people join the ranks of observers. Special forums about the webcams are established, where people can share their observations, photos and videos. You may be, or may become a member of this community.Black Storks breed as far from human settlements as possible, therefore, watching them directly without a webcam is almost impossible. People who watch during the months of egg-lay, incubation, brooding, off-spring hatching, growing and finally fledging - they dream of following these juveniles after the nest life, when the chicks start to live their independent lives. It is possible to install small transmitters on the almost grown-up chicks while they are still in the nest. This gives information about their movements after fledging, during their first migration to the south, and further.But, as in nature it is, not all juveniles are strong and clever and lucky enough to survive. This is a rule in nature - stronger individuals may produce their offspring but we never know who is who, in the nest.Therefore, observers need to be ready for bad news as well as good. Nevertheless, our beloved "kids" may not be the winners in natural selectionEverybody is able to follow Black Storks' (named Karl and Kati) nest life next season - since the beginning of April 2018 in Karula National Park, Estonia, (via http://www.looduskalender.ee/n/en) whether or not you want to support the current funding drive! To see about the breeding season 2017, you can visit forum site http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=878The Eagle Club of Estonia has an ever-increasing fan club for its nest cameras. It is possible to use the same tracker method for different species of juveniles leaving our webcam nests in Estonia. Much depends on the funding capacity. Nowadays there are safe tracking devices developed for majority of bigger bird species. Many young black storks perish on their first migration. If only we had a way to track them, that would give us the information about where and why they perish. Sometimes, starvation is the cause. Sometimes, collision with power lines, or they are prey to a predator. Knowing what the dangers are will help to protect them in the future. Thank you for helping to protect them.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi OPG, As some of you may have heard, Zeina's son, Tommy, has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) last week. Tommy is currently hospitalized in Paris and as you can imagine this is an incredibly difficult moment for their entire family. Many of you asked how they could help or provide support to Zeina and her family. After discussing with her, she felt that even though Tommy is provided with great care in Paris, supporting research on Leukemia and improving the environment of the kids in hospital is what is the most needed today for kids suffering from Leukemia. With that in mind, for those of you who want to support Tommy and all kids suffering from similar illness, we will organize a collect for the Laurette Fugain association. It is a french association who's mission is to fight Leukemia and has been also supporting The Trousseau hospital where Tommy is currently hospitalized. Its mission is structured around three main pillars: * supporting medical research on leukemia* mobilizing around Life Gifts (blood, platelets, bone marrow, cord blood, plasma and organs) ) that are essential to the patients healing journey* helping the patients and their familiesThe website is in French however if you have any questions feel free to ask Emmanuel, Maryna, or any other french speaker that can help you navigate their content Thank you for your support.
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.

You've made it! Welcome to my fundraising page. I know, I know, I'm really not too sure why I entered, I quite like having 10 toenails and 2 nipples but alas there's no going back now. I will be running for the MS Society. They are the biggest charitable funder of MS research in the UK. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialists can help you to manage the condition and its symptoms. MS is complex, and has many symptoms. More than 100,000 people in the UK have MS. Symptoms usually start in your 20s and 30s and it affects almost three times as many women as men. The cause is unknown and a cure is yet to be found, but research is progressing fast. The MS Society funds research, provides grants, campaigns for change, provides information and support, invests in MS specialists and lends a listening ear to those who need it. My own struggle is a daunting 31 week, 121 run, 667-mile training plan and of course the final BIG day. But despite how mammoth this task seems, thinking of those close to me who are living with MS puts everything into perspective and continues to motivate and inspire me as I hope it will for you too. So when donating be a babe and give generously :) Please feel free to join me anytime whilst I pound the pavements of London & Essex. Thank you all so much!Much love Toni x

L’association Ça roule pour Lulu a vu le jour en novembre 2016 à Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois en Charente-Maritime. L’objectif est de lever des fonds afin d’améliorer le quotidien de Lucas, un petit garçon handicapé de 7 ans.Lucas, surnommé affectueusement Lulu par ses proches, est un petit garçon pas comme les autres. Il est né grand prématuré à seulement 28 semaines. Il pesait 1,2 kg et mesurait 37 cm. Cette grande prématurité a provoqué des lésions cérébrales qui ont touché la zone de psychomotricité et a entraîné une hémiplégie droite. Mais les soucis de Lucas ne se sont pas arrêtés là. Quelques jours après sa naissance, les médecins lui ont diagnostiqué une maladie génétique rénale rare, un diabète insipide néphrogénique.Depuis Lucas a bien grandi et ses besoins également. Il faut notamment penser à aménager sa maison pour qu’il puisse circuler avec son fauteuil roulant. En projet, l’extension de sa chambre avec une douche et un w.-c. adapté à son handicap. Il faudra aussi rendre accessible les abords de la maison et adapter un véhicule à Lucas. Ces travaux sont estimés à 70 000 €, un coût trop élevé pour la famille aux revenus modestes et les aides sont peu nombreuses. Les pouvoirs publics de notre pays ne prévoient aucune aide complémentaire au peu que verse la MDPH (Maison Départementale des Personnes Handicapées). Lucas ne bénéficie plus de son complément à l’allocation d’enfant handicapé de base.C’est pourquoi la famille a décidé de créer l’association afin de lever des fonds pour améliorer le quotidien de Lucas. Une quarantaine d’adhérents s'est déjà mobilisée pour Lucas. De nombreuses manifestations sont à venir (soirée zumba, journée handisport, soirée couscous, randonné gourmande semi-nocturne, course pédestre...) pour augmenter la cagnotte.Merci à vous, qui avez fait un don ou qui avez donné de votre temps pour améliorer la vie de Lucas.Pour en savoir plus sur l'association, l'histoire de Lucas, ou encore sur le planning de nos prochaines manifestations, rendez-vous sur notre site Internet http://caroulepourlulu.e-monsite.com/ ou sur notre page Facebook "Ça roule pour Lulu".

Text Books for ExamsCommonwealth of Dominica Hurricane Relief Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you! In the evening of 18 September 2017 Maria, a category five hurricane, hit the Caribbean Island of Dominica. Many of us were to find out only during the course of the following day(s) that it was a category five, as we had lost power before we got the news. It was the most terrifying experience of my whole life, a statement that thousands of others all around the country can testify to. As the winds howled and screeched, trees, guttering, galvanize, fridges, washing machines, cars starting flying through the air, and this is no exaggeration, as could be witnessed the following morning. People reported finding their roofs, and other property in some cases several miles away from where they lived. Whole houses were taken away by rivers or by the sea…people lost their lives, their families, their houses, and other possessions, some people lost everything.…but being Dominicans, we did not lose hope! For the majority of us the clean-up started immediately the following morning, still in a state of shock and bewilderment – most had not been able to sleep anyway so after a brief immediate assessment of the situation, checking in on family and friends where possible (the majority of us had no phone or radio communication) people started clearing up… The following weeks I spent helping family, friends and neighbours, giving time to help clean up and wherever possible at the old people’s home, sourcing food for my mother and brother, helping with distributing foods and other relief goods I came across.When I visited the SDA school close to my house and saw the amount of devastation I was moved once again to tears. I learnt that the roof had completely gone, many students had no books, clothes, other school necessities and in some cases no home! This was when I started the initiative to provide as many books as I could collect money to buy. The hurricane meant that schools were closed for some time but once the children got back to school, (in many cases in tents provided by relief support), in particular those facing CSEC exams in May had to buckle down, but how so with missing text books? Initially I informed some people of my idea and received some promises. Due to the urgency this was not enough, time was running out for the exam preparing students.My beautiful God daughter offered her support by putting together this site to push my efforts. My goal is to buy as many of 148 books on the list provided by the school by the end of January. I have so far managed to buy 27 with the support of family and friends.I would appreciate ANY contribution you can make, nothing is too small. But more importantly I know the children and staff at the SDA school in Glanvilla would appreciate this even more.

Français / Español (descripción abajo, después del francés) / English (bottom page) FRANCAIS Bienvenue dans cette page officielle de financement participatif pour soutenir l'Organisation Non Gouvernementale "MAGIC BROTHERS WORLD" dans son projet d'offrir des spectacles de magie solidaire dans des orphelinats et autres organismes caritatifs en Asie de 2017 à 2019 ! MAGIC BROTHERS WORLD (MBW) apporte de l'espoir et du bonheur à travers des spectacles de magie dans des orphelinats du monde entier et où il en a le plus besoin. Avec son équipe toujours grandissante de 70 magiciens bénévoles et basée sur les 5 continents, MBW soutient les enfants en besoin de rêves pour grandir et se développer avec un avenir meilleur. La majorité des orphelins retournent à la rue à un moment donné après avoir quitté l'orphelinat. L’objectif principal de MBW est d’encourager ces enfants et ces jeunes à trouver un but dans leur vie, à y croire et à travailler dur pour atteindre ses objectifs. Tout cela à travers quelques histoires lors de la présentation du spectacle de magie. Le deuxième objectif de MBW est d'inviter les magiciens bénévoles locaux à faire des spectacles solidaires ensemble dans les orphelinats locaux, puis continuer à inviter d'autres magiciens locaux pour poursuivre les spectacles ensemble à l'avenir. De cette façon, leur "famille" de magiciens bénévoles continue à s’agrandir au fil des mois et au fil des spectacles. Certains des magiciens bénévoles de MBW sont eux-mêmes orphelins, d'autres ont participés aux derniers championnats du monde de magie en 2015 en Italie, d'autres ont commencés avec la magie il n’y a que quelques mois et malgré toutes ces différences ils se considèrent tous comme des Frères. MBW espère que dans quelques années, certains de ces orphelins rencontrés récemment vont continuer à aider cette Organisation et continuer à répandre la magie, l'amour et l'espoir pour les autres de leurs "frères orphelins". Après avoir partagé leur message d'espoir et partagé sa magie en Afrique, en Amérique du Nord et du Sud, en Europe et en Océanie (Australie), MBW se concentre maintenant sur leur expansion en Asie. Le fondateur de MBW "Magic Tony" voyage en ce moment Asie, de 2017 à 2019, pour inviter les magiciens locaux à faire des spectacles solidaires ensemble et à se joindre à leur famille de magicians solidaires. Magic Tony a travaillé préalablement pendant 10 mois en Australie afin de collecter un maximum de financements pour ce projet en Asie et ainsi atteindre cet objectif d’étendre la famille de magiciens solidaires et avoir une présence sur les 5 continents. Jusqu'à présent, avec l'aide de dons privés et avec l'argent recueilli par le fondateur, MBW a pu récupérer $3056 AUD (2138€) des $5898 AUD (4140€) nécessaires à ce projet. Pour pouvoir continuer à répandre l'amour et la magie aux 4 coins de l'Asie, MBW manque seulement de la dernière partie du financement (voir ci-dessous pour plus de détails). C'est pour cette partie qu'ils ont vraiment besoin de votre soutien si vous pouviez ajouter quelques euros dans ce projet de financement participatif afin de pouvoir rendre ce rêve possible et faire partie de ce magnifique projet.

Bonjour à tous! Le paludisme au Togo c'est 12 décès infantiles chaque jour. Cela fait donc 5 ans que des étudiants de la faculté de médecine de Grenoble entreprennent le projet TOGO. Ce projet consiste à distribuer des moustiquaires imprégnées aux populations Togolaises.En effet, il est important de savoir que selon l'OMS, cela reste le seul moyen efficace de lutter contre cette maladie parasitaire qui se transmet par les moustiques.Cette année nous sommes donc 6 étudiants à reprendre le projet pour la 5ème année et distriburont pour la première fois des flyers expliquant les conditions favorisant la transmission du paludisme, les moyens de s'en protéger et les réflexes à adopter en cas de contamination. Notre Objectif : distribuer 9000 flyers et 3170 moustiquaires (sachant qu'une moustiquaire coûte 7€), pour protéger plus de 6335 personnes. La Contexte de la Mission : La réalisation de ce projet est possible grâce au partenariat entre PEP'S (Projet Étudiant Pour la Solidarité) et l'ONG locale Djidjolé Afrique. Nous aurons donc la chance d'être accompagnées de bénévoles togolais tout au long de la mission. Ceci nous permettra de mieux appréhender leur langue et de comprendre leur mode de vie afin d'adapter au mieux notre action de solidarité. Les Résultats : Les résultats des actions précédentes sont particulièrement positifs, en effet en 2015, nous avons constaté une diminution de 50% des cas de Paludisme dans le village de Dodji par rapport à 2014 ! Le projet marche tellement bien que l'année dernière, pour la première fois, ils étaient 6 à partir et nous espérons être 6 à nouveau cette année. Le projet prend donc de l'ampleur et tout ceci est possible grâce à votre générosité et votre soutien ! Il n'y a pas de petites sommes et n'oubliez pas que 1 moustiquaire = 7€, c'est le prix d'un macdo, d'un bon livre de poche, d'un pinte, d'un paquet de cigarettes ou ... de la protection de 3 personnes !!!Toute participation est la bienvenue. Merci 1000 fois ! non merci 10000 fois! :) Bien affectueusement, Rose FERRER, Guillaume BIBOLLET, Miléna SCIAMA, Marie DHERBEY, Dorian RENEVIER et Tania KHADROUCHE
I am creating this campaign to help the baby boy of Alex & Denise Spinoche, get the treatment he needs in order to fight brain damage at birth. Here is their story:Our little boy Thomas came like a mirracle, when, after 3 years of waiting, we almost lost hope of ever being blessed to be parents. All tests showed a normal pregnancy and normal baby development.Thomas was born at term, but prolonged lack of oxygen at birth led to severe brain damage, still hard to quantify. Resuscitation was needed, as well as an induced coma for almost a month backed by a cooling therapy to help reduce the brain edema. Our hearts were broken forever when the diagnosis came: severe hypoxic ischemia encephalopathy (HIE), a "desease" with no cure and permanent life lasting consequences.Thomas is 7 months old now, but consequences of oxygen deprivation are seen every day: he weights only 5 kg and cannot eat by himself, he must be fed through a tube through the nose into his tinny stomach, causing him to vomit on a regular basis. HIE comes with multiple side effects, all of which Thomas is fighting on a daily basis: under-development of motor skills, hearing and visual impairment, a weakimune system that already sent Thomas back to the hospital 3 times and the worst and most common, cerebral palsy.For the last 7 months, baby Thomas went through daily physiotherapy, meant to improve his motor skills and sucking instinct, with the hope that one day he will be able to eat and walk as normal as possible.Treatments such as hyperbaric therapy (pure oxygen therapy) and stem cells injections, although highly recommended by doctors and with incredible results, are not funded by the Maltese health system and are beyound our financial means.Thomas is schedulled for the first session of hyperbaric therapy in Manchester in January, thus raising part of the funds in short time is an urgent matter. Depending on the outcome, stem cells therapy will follow. We tried to reach several hospitals in Europe to asses the costs of such therapy and average estimation goes around 20 000 - 45 000 EUR, not including the parents' expenses with accomodation for the period of treatment.Our savings have slowly dried up and we must now work part-time and take turns in prividing full care to our beloved son, who needs us more than ever.We are realistic and we know our son will have to fight for his well being every single day of his life. And we are determined to do everything in our power to help him. Even if this means reaching up to you, generous people all over the world, to help us give our son the best care and medical help he can receive. Thus, any donation, contacts to foundations that can support or hospitals performing stem cells injections pro-bono would be more than welcome.
Cough up for Matilda and Leeds C F Unit As some of you are aware, Matilda was recently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (if you’re not sure what it is, here’s a good link: https://www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk/what-is-cystic-fibrosis )Unfortunately there’s no cure, but there is a lot of research going into making better medicines to help people diagnosed with this lifelong condition. And to help with this research, we need you to cough up (symptom of C.F. pun intended) and donate what you can to Leeds General Infirmary Cystic Fibrisis Unit. Thank you all in advance for your help, hopefully we can get Matilda (and the other kids with C.F.) even better care and medicines than she has now.
