L'HEURE VIDE HUMANITAIRE - Venezuelan refugees

While travelling through South America by car we crossed the border of Ecuador and Colombia in Rumichaca. There we saw so many Venezuelan refugees in such great misery without the help they needed, that we decided to stay. We started this NGO, and have been working together succesfully with local and international organizations to give them the help they need. Please visit us at: www.lheurevidehumanitaire.orgInstagram: L'HEURE VIDE humanitaire L’HEURE VIDE humanitaire is a small network-based NGO focused on short-term projects in emergency situations involving refugee issues worldwide. Our approach is to assist existing humanitarian aid structures and local associations and to supplement them when their opportunities to act are limited or restraint.Our aim is not to direct or to implement.We are there to help. This approach ensures that we can focus on what is needed on the ground and in the now to fill the gaps in aid left by big organizational structures and complex international policy. As a small and nimble organization, we are not limited by bureaucracy or massive overhead.This allows us to concentrate our efforts where we excel: organizing the available resources in a hands-on, creative way to produce tangible results quickly and effectively. Sofie Sleumer and Michel MulderFoundersEn voyageant à travers l’Amérique du Sud en voiture, nous avons traversé la frontière de l’Équateur et de la Colombie à Rumichaca. Ici, nous avons vu beaucoup de réfugiés vénézuéliens vivant dans une telle misère que nous avons décidé de rester. Nous avons donc lancé cette ONG et nous collaborons avec succès avec des organisations locales et internationales pour donner à ces réfugiés l’aide dont ils ont besoin. Voici notre site web: www.lheurevidehumanitaire.orgInstagram: www.instagram.com/lheurevidehumanitaire L’HEURE VIDE humanitaire est une petite ONG dédiée aux projets à court terme impliquant des réfugiés dans le monde entier. Notre approche consiste non seulement à aider les structures d’aide humanitaire existantes et les associations locales mais également à les suppléer lorsque leurs possibilités d’agir sont restreintes. Autrement dit, notre but n’est pas de diriger ou de mettre en œuvre: Nous sommes là pour aider. Cette approche nous permet de nous concentrer sur ce qui est nécessaire sur le terrain et dans le présent pour pallier aux limites l’aide accordée par les grandes structures organisationnelles et les complexes politiques internationales. Pour cause, en tant que petite organisation agile, nous ne sommes pas contraints par la bureaucratie ou les frais généraux massifs. Cela nous permet de concentrer nos efforts là où nous excellons, à savoir l’organisation de ressources disponibles de façon pratique et créative pour produire des résultats tangibles rapidement et efficacement.

Support a family house in Cambodia

Support a family house in Cambodia

Hello friends, family and guests of "Les Néréides"!Since 2011, our holiday rentals have generated an annual donation of 800 to 1000 euros so that Cambodian children in need can live and grow in a safe family environment. They need our support as much as ever, but with Covid, our bookings have raised just 220 euros.Here, you can donate a small part of what you may not have spent on a foreign holiday this year, and help us reach our usual amount. We have all lost a lot in 2020, but hope is around the corner. Let’s make sure the children of Krousar Thmey can enjoy some of that hope too!Thank you from them and from us, for whatever you can contribute.Best wishes for the holidays and for a bright and better New Year,Suzanne & Jean-François Presentation of the projectThe project aims to support a family house in Cambodia in order to help marginalized children to be reintegrated into their families and society, through emotional, educational, and material support. The family house in question (named "Kpop Veng") welcomes street children who have suffered from important trauma into a safe environment, tailored to their needs, while providing them with the resources and care they require to become independent and responsible adults.BackgroundBorn in 1991 in the Site II refugee camp in Thailand, Krousar Thmey (“New family” in Khmer) is the first Cambodian foundation helping underprivileged children. Its mission is to enable the integration of underprivileged children into Cambodian society through education and support adapted to their needs, with respect to their traditions and beliefs.Kpop Veng family house is one of the four family houses run by Krousar Thmey in 2020. The house opened in 1999 and is located in the city of Takhmao, in the suburbs of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Sokhy, the mother in charge of the family house, has been working with Krousar Thmey since 1999, which demonstrates her reliability and provides a sense of security to the children. After 20 years, she is always enthusiastic and still passionate about her work.Currently, the house welcomes 8 children (4 boys and 4 girls).How will the funds be used?The funds will be used to support the education, health, hygiene, nutrition, as well as cultural and recreational activities for the children of the Kpop Veng family house. For instance, a contribution of:- 5$ covers the expenses allowing the children to do gardening for a month- 10$ covers the price of school uniforms for one child for one year- 37$ covers the food for one child for one month- 50$ covers extra English classes for the children for one month Thank you again for your support !

Team Annette: Water for Nele - Wasser für Nele

Hallo zusammen & willkommen an diesem Geldtopf! Nele ist ein kleiner Junge in einem Dorf in Kiuti County, einer Region nahe Nairobi in Kenia. Er ist vier Jahre alt und spielt leidenschaftlich gern Fußball auf dem Dorfplatz. Nele will mal ein großer Fußballspieler werden, denn dann hat er Geld und kann seiner Mutter ein neues Kleid kaufen. Nele hat einen großen Bruder, der schon in die Schule geht, die neun Kilometer weit weg ist. Jeden Morgen, wenn der Bruder sich auf den langen Fußweg macht, möchte er am liebsten mit. Ach, wär er doch schon sieben! Seine drei Schwestern machen sich auch auf den Weg, aber die beneidet er nicht. Statt mit Schultasche gehen sie mit Wasserkanistern los, sie suchen Wasser für die Tiere und die Familie, denn sein Land trocknet aus unter der sengenden Sonne Südostafrikas....Nele steht für tausende Kinder in der Region Kiuti County und es ist nicht gesagt, ob er überhaupt sieben Jahre alt wird. 90 % der Haushalte haben keinen Zugang zu frischem, sauberen Wasser. Sie decken ihren Wasserbedarf durch Brackwasserpfützen voller Erreger, die u.a. Thyphus auslösen können. Die Kindersterblichkeit ist entsprechend hoch, 9,8 % der Kinder im County sterben vor ihrem 5. Geburtstag - an Thyphus, Malaria, Tollwut. Dank der Lifeplus Foundation sind wir in der glücklichen Lage, die Patenschaft für den Bau eines Dorfbrunnens zu übernehmen. In jedem Dorf des Countys gibt es mindestens einen Nele, der sieben Jahre alt werden will. Wir wollen als Team Annette dafür sorgen, dass er das kann.

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Nele is a young boy in a village in Kiuti County, a region near Nairobi in Kenya. He is four years old and loves to play football in the village square. Nele wants to be a great football player one day, because then he will have money and can buy his mother a new dress.Nele has a big brother who already goes to school, which is nine kilometers away. Every morning, when the brother sets out on the long walk, Nele would like to go with him. Oh, if it were already seven! His three sisters set off too, but Nele doesn't envy them. Instead of carrying a school bag, they set off with water cans, they are looking for water for the animals and the family, because his country is drying up under the scorching sun of Southeast Africa ...Nele stands for thousands of children in the Kiuti County region and it is not known whether he will even be seven years old. 90% of households have no access to fresh, clean water. They cover their water needs through brackish puddles full of pathogens that can cause typhoid. Child mortality is correspondingly high, 9.8% of children in the county die before their 5th birthday - from typhoid, malaria, rabies.Thanks to the Lifeplus Foundation, we are in the fortunate position of sponsoring the construction of a village well. In every village in the county there is at least one Nele who wants to be seven years old. As Team Annette, we want to make sure that he can do that.With just 1-click you can donate to a good cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com?

Transforming Waste Through Education and Empowerment in Malawi

Transforming Waste Through Education and Empowerment in Malawi

ICCM is Creating Opportunity, Protecting People and the Environment, by Reducing Waste ICCM is a Malawian based social enterprise dedicated to tackling the unceasing issue of waste and our aim is to not only protect the environment but also the people who live in it.Our main focus is educating the community with our ‘Reduction, Reuse and Recycle’ strategy but we also implement waste management best practise, waste collection and commercial consultation. We rely heavily on our amazing volunteers and this allows us to pour any revenue into our projects and programmes but in order to spread our message further we require more funding to employ talented and dedicated individuals with the skills to take this enterprise further. We have already provided education programmes to schools, expanded our commercial waste collection to over 30 businesses and funded community workers in starting their own eco-friendly businesses but with your help we could do so much more! Your donations will help to preserve the undisputed natural beauty of the area, reduce respiratory disease in adults and children and allow us to help communities thrive where poverty is rife. As COVID 19 is closing in on Malawi Duty of Care to our waste collection workers is key, this money will be prioritised to ensure our team have the correct PPE to start. All other donations will be used to build the capacity of communities to manage waste to improve their health, livelihoods and environment. THANK YOU ............................................................................................................................... Our vision is to create and maintain a healthy environment by reducing pollution and the damage caused by unregulated waste disposal. Our waste ‘Reduction, Reuse and Recycling’ strategy is imperative to support this goal. In the 4 years ICCM has been operating we have documented evidence-based research, secured income streams from waste collection and waste reduction business services. We provide commercial consultation/advice and deliver school programmes on environmental and waste management best practice. We support commercial activity and education in the community which helps relieve poverty and improves positive ideas/behavioural change.We currently rely heavily on volunteers due to limited funding, but as we expand our aim is to identify new sources of revenue which will enable is to become self-funding, allowing us to employ talented and committed individuals who share our values. Studies clearly document the negative effect that poor waste management has on the health and wellbeing of communities in Malawi. Broad environmental issues include water,soil and air pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions from uncontrolled open waste sites and associated transportation. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/57a08a06ed915d3cfd000550/EoD_HD099_Oct2013_Solid_Waste_Mang_SL.pdf. UN-Habitat (2010) reports that prevalence rates of acute respiratory infections among children living in households where garbage is burned in the yard can be six times higher compared to houses where waste is collected regularly.Our team work to transform waste into a resource, creating economic incentives as social drivers to behaviour change. Our achievements up to date include:• Environmental waste management (re-use & recycle) best practice education to students in both government and private schools.• Training and supported development of the skill-sets of ICCM employees and volunteers.• Supported Clement Kandodo, a former ICCM volunteer in setting up his own successful environmentally friendly biogas company.• Increased the skills of practical innovators enabling them to become productive environmental designers and teachers.• Engaged with over 30 organisations & businesses promoting environmental best practice and compliant waste collection services.• Created a platform for waste stakeholders to discuss key issues for knowledge sharing, efficient waste management and waste innovations.• Secured a ‘Letter of Support’ from Environmental Affairs Department (Malawi Government) to setup waste collection in the Capital City of Lilongwe. ICCM need financial support to deliver an increasing number of vital educational activities and projects. This will enable us to hold and regularly deliver waste educational waste management events, youth panel meetings, entrepreneurship events and activities to promote ethical waste management practice. Equally we are committed to supporting waste innovators with the provision of design knowledge, tools and equipment to enable them to generate income from agri-waste and eco-waste derived product or solution sales. If you would like to help us make a real difference - where it is desperately needed by making a donation, you can be assured that every contribution, no matter how large or small will be appreciated and be used effectively to Create Opportunity, Protect People and the Environment by Reducing Waste.
