Moving for a Good Cause: Special Wheelchair for my son Loris and his friends

Moving for a Good Cause: Special Wheelchair for my son Loris and his friends

Hello, My name is Luc Brucher, I work as an Audit Partner at Deloitte Luxembourg and I have decided to challenge myself to support a good cause. My goal is to sponsor a special wheelchair designed to enable runners to push a disabled person in the chair while running. This wheelchair will be donated to Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt, who will use it for various sport activities for disabled people. Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt is a Luxembourg non-profit organization created in 1996 that offers multi-disciplinary conductive education programs for disabled children. They are convinced of the benefits of sport activities for disabled people as it boosts their self-esteem and confidence, reduces stress, and fosters positive social interactions. Here’s a picture of the chair: To complete my challenge, I need your help to gather €6500.I will run the ING Half Marathon in Luxembourg on 27 May 2017 together with my son Loris, who benefits from the excellent work provided by Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt every day. Loris’s wheelchair will be accompanied by his friends in other wheelchairs as well as Deloitte volunteers who will support us during the race. This experience will be fun, inspiring, and impactful and it would be great if you could join me in this endeavor by making a donation on this Leetchi page. Every contribution is welcome, and together we can really make an impact that matters by helping Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt and its beneficiaries. Help spread the word! The more people become aware, the more we can help support Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt. I will post regular updates about my challenge on Facebook, and you can follow me by clicking on the link below:* Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/407122482994126/Don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, and thanks in advance for your support! Luc Brucher

School meals for kids in Volos, Greece.

School meals for kids in Volos, Greece.

Welcome to this money pot !When the volunteers at the Solidarity Kitchen heard me describing a young child in my daughter's class who came to school hungry and had nothing to eat all day, they immediately offered to feed her. Within a very short time, the Solidarity Kitchen's founder Angeliki had visited the school, met with the headteacher and was delivering 25 meals to children in need. This year, the Solidarity Kitchen is providing meals to 60 children in need in Volos schools. What I find most moving about their efforts is Angliki’s dedication to the cause. For example, throughout the summer she slept overnight in her car to set up a stall of hand-knitted and crocheted gifts every morning at a local seaside resort—all to raise money for the children's meals. As a woman in her late sixties, this is no mean task. Additionally, this week I found out that Aggeliki and another volunteer had visited a bazaar in Thessaloniki to raise money for the Solidarity kitchen. Once again, Angliki had slept in her car in order to set up her stall in the morning.. The Solidarity Kitchen needs to raise €3,500 to pay for the meals for the 2017 academic school year. While this seems like a lot of money, it will go a long way and be spread among many. As a mother, I would be very grateful for anyone able to help Angeliki, her team of volunteers, and the children of Volos who are in need of daily meals. Take a look at the Solidarity Kitchen's website to get a feel for the work they do.https://kouzinavolos.org/Of course, it's in Greek, but there are lots of photos and videos!! Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure In Solidarity,Maria McCarthy.

Kurshaid Ambulance Fund

Kurshaid Ambulance Fund

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.  Everyone

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

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.

The Edinburgh 2017 Galloping Gorillas

The Edinburgh 2017 Galloping Gorillas

Welcome to the Edinburgh 2017 Marathon Galloping Gorillas campaign!  Who we are running for: The PRWOP campaign, Bring the PRWOP Kids’ Crew Back To School, seeks to bring back to school eight children who all lost their fathers who were protecting the wildlife of the Democratic Republic of Congo. PRWOP aims to help establish independent livelihoods for the widows of Park Rangers in the country. These rangers lost their lives in work related incidents and now their families are doing it tough.Helping these families will allow them to access primary school education for their children. These families believe that education can bring about lasting change in the lives and livelihoods of their households and communities. You can find the campaign here: carolinebec.wixsite.com/fundraisingsite   About us:  We are a motley bunch of friends from different parts of the world. Scottish, Australian, English and French, we are all living in Edinburgh and for some reason we all seem to enjoy running in Scottish weather (which is usually involves ice, rain and/or wind… on a good day). We have all decided to run for PRWOP, where we hope our travails can help out the PRWOP kids’ crew. Some of us have more experience than others, but we are learning (and suffering) together every time we sweat in the great city of Edinburgh. May 27th, four of us will be prancing through the 10K and May 28th, two of us will rock the Half Marathon.  Meet the Galloping Gorillas:   IAIN  As the one true Scotsman on the team, Iain has decided to show the rest of us tourists what it really means to run across his sacred Caledonia, the land of the brave. He does not feel the cold. He does not feel the rain. And he stands ready to defend Alba’s honour against his daytripper teammates in the 10k… while also conveniently helping the PRWOP kids’ crew. JOHN  John is from northern England and spends much of his time as a PhD student looking for Vikings. Like the Vikings of old, he plans to charge like a maniac through the streets of the UK… only this time to fundraise for the PRWOP kids, instead of for gold and glory. Though he’d still like a seat at the table in Valhalla for his efforts. John is running the 10k. JACK  Jack is from the English midlands. He is doing a PhD in alien-hunting (no joke). In his picture he can be seen stoking a large fire-beacon, which he uses to try and communicate with distant planets. He also likes to run (presumably in preparation for outrunning the tractor beams when they come for him). He has decided to put in an effort at the half marathon in aid of the cause. TAS  Tas in an Aussie with Grecian roots, who is thought to be looked over by two Greek gods: Dionysus, the god of debauchery; and Hermes, the Greek god of athletics. The former means that he knows how to relax (see picture). The latter means that he can run like the wind. He has decided to put this last talent to good use in doing the 10k run in support of the PRWOP crew. GEOFF  Geoff is Australian. He likes gorillas - as evidenced by his gratuitous selfie with a silverback on the border between DRC and Uganda. He says that the rangers who took him to the gorillas were total dudes. He also sometimes pretends to like to run. So he’s dusting off his long neglected running shoes to have a crack at a half marathon to try and raise some funds for the PRWOP crew. CAROLINE  Caroline is the French program manager of the PRWOP campaign. She also knows some Kung Fu. She is running a 10k for the first time ever and, as she did not want to suffer alone, used her Kung Fu to pacify this group of troublemakers and invite them to run with her. Fate decided that she will celebrate her 24th birthday the day of the race and this is giving her even more motivation.   Help up to raise funds for the Bring the PRWOP Kids' Crew Back to School   Your support will help the children to stay in school and reach their full potential.Thank You!

Improving Mental Health for the Poor in Cambodia

Improving Mental Health for the Poor in Cambodia

This page is to donate money to Prof. Alex Wood to help some of the poorest people in Cambodia to get better mental health care. The money is planned to be used as part of an ongoing project to improve the treatment of mental health in the region, or to be donated to a hospital which gives good healthcare to the poorest people for free (or at a cost affordable to them).Best value charitable donation - no middle menA key challange with giving to charity is knowing how much actually gets to where it is needed. Alex is able to personally take the money to where it is needed and use or give the money directly to the hospitals. No middle men, no employees, no advertising, none of the normal worries about the efficiency of charities.Our Mental Health ProjectImproving mental health services is a key health challenge for developing countries across South East Asia. Cambodia faces particular challenges following a genocide and series of wars in the 1970s and 1980s. During this period health care and university services were nearly entirely destroyed, including through a particular targeting of medical practitioners and academics for execution during the Pol Pot era. In the last two decades, Cambodia has made impressive efforts to rebuild its health and educations systems, including through the establishment of a basic infrastructure of hospitals, medical education universities, and aspirations to conduct international quality research. This has led to notable improvements in physical health as seen, for example, in arrested and declining HIV rates. However, mental health needs have been nearly entirely neglected, and the Cambodian population is largely without access to even rudimentary psychiatric or psychological treatments in both primary and secondary care, leading to several problems.First, rates of untreated mental illness are very high, with associated suffering and stigmatisation. Globally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that depression alone causes more suffering than that generated by all physical disorders combined. This suffering may be expected to be exceptionally high in Cambodia as almost no one in the older generation will have avoided witnessing or experiencing highly traumatic events, and the younger generation will have been born and parented in the recent aftermath of the trauma.Second, mental health conditions are often miss-diagnosed as physical, leading to inappropriate treatment that both wastes resources and risks harming the patient through unnecessary treatment, which in many cases exacerbates the mental health condition.Third, the treatment of chronic physical health conditions is complicated through a lack of assessment or treatment of co-morbid mental health conditions, resulting in the physical health conditions being more difficult and expensive to treat, as well as causing a considerably worse prognosis for the patient. For example, key challenges of HIV programmes include; (a) missed appointments, (b) patients dropping out of the system, (c) the need to locate patients that have so disengaged, (d) lack of adherence to treatment leading to both the emergence of opportunistic infections and HIV medication failure, (e) the need to use newer, more expensive medication due to first line medication failure, and (f) erratic medication compliance risking the emergence of drug resistance at the population level with international implications. Much of these problems emerge from patient disengagement and non-compliance, a key predictor of which in other countries is untreated simple mental health conditions such as depression. Adding a mental health assessment and treatment protocol may both reduce these problems and lead to a net financial saving for the programme.The implementation of an evidence based mental health programme is not currently possible due to the near total lack of research on how to assess or treat mental health in Cambodia, and there is no current mechanism to disseminate new p

Ryszard Civil March For Aleppo

Ryszard Civil March For Aleppo

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
