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.

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 !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!
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 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.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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.

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

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
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.

I have decided few days ago to travel to Bengladesh and support NGOs helping the 600,000 Rohingya refugees in the camps. I have seen a lot of misery and poverty that words can not describe but besides that I remain astonished about ONE thing...The children's smile despite the miserable situation. Therefore, I have decided to bring a small contribution and organize a food distribution for 1000 children refugees. Only 2€ are enough to nourish a child for a week here in Bangladesh, so everybody can bring a smile to a child and any donation will make a difference. So please donate, support or at least share.

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. SOLUTIONUPA 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. Total is 2000€ for upgrading water system at the volunteers’ guesthouse. Once getting enough funding, if UPA is supported to get this money, work shall commence in end of December 2017. LONG-TERM IMPACTWith the successful completion of this project, we believe that the volunteers shall have a better health while using the UPA guesthouse and it will increase their productivity on projects since there shall be less or no illnesses due to inadequate water.
