Svenja’s UTMB Fundraiser

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

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

Apportons notre aide aux réfugiés Rohingyas

Apportons notre aide aux réfugiés Rohingyas

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.  To follow our actions on field and your contributions you created a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HelpRohingyas/ 10€ represent 22kg of rice which means 132 meals.

Improving water supply at Uganda Pioneers’ Association Volunteers’ Guesthouse

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. SOLUTION​UPA 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. RESOURCESWebsite: http://www.ugandapioneers.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/uganda.pioneers CLICK TO CONTRIBUTE* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure.​Helping our volunteers is linked to helping our community.We would appriciate your kindly supporting. Thank you for your cooperation!!

Une carrière pour notre club

Une carrière pour notre club

Une carrière pour notre club Organisé pour : Centre Hippique du Territoire de Belfort  Urgence pour le bien être des chevaux Qui sommes nous?  Le Centre Hippique du Territoire de Belfort est une association loi 1901. C’est un centre équestre se trouvant dans un parc verdoyant, arboré et agréable tout en étant en ville. Nous accueillons une vingtaine de chevaux et poneys.Notre association permet aux clients d’évoluer dans différentes disciplines (CSO, dressage, éthologie, cross, balades, …) dans un cadre agréable et familial. Nous souhaitons avant tout que petits et grands évoluent avec les chevaux en confiance et dans la bonne humeur.Aujourd’hui, c’est un nouveau comité, jeune et dynamique, plein de nouveaux défis et de projets en tête qui représente l’Association et qui souhaite développer l’activité du centre équestre. L'association compte de nombreux membres, bénévoles, sympathisants ou encore propriétaires qui assistent l’association dans les différentes activités de la vie du club (entretien des infrastructures, rénovation des box, soin des chevaux, …)  Que voulons-nous faire ? Notre comité a changé en Mars 2016 et souhaite s’inscrire désormais dans une démarche de développement de notre activité tout en respectant le bien-être animal. Notre démarche est simple : nous souhaitons proposer aux enfants de découvrir l’animal dans son milieu naturel (comme vit-il au pré, qu’est-ce qu’il mange ?) mais aussi d’apprendre à l’approcher, à travailler avec et à le comprendre. Nous avons également la possibilité de proposer le même service aux personnes âgées situées sur le même domaine que nos équidés.Nous avons de cesse d’améliorer la vie du club et des chevaux au quotidien. Aujourd’hui, nous avons accueillis 4 nouveaux équidés, avons rénové les infrastructures des box et mis en place des prés permanents pour que les chevaux puissent prendre l’air et se détendre dans leur milieu naturel.Grâce à nos bénévoles et à nos monitrices, nous avons pu mettre en place différentes activités pour la découverte du milieu équestres. Pendant les vacances scolaires, nous proposons des programmes pédagogiques pour les enfants afin qu’ils découvrent la voltige, l’éthologie, l’attelage et encore bien d’autres disciplines.               Aujourd’hui, nous avons un manège et un accès à un étang basé sur le domaine, mais nous souhaitons construire une nouvelle carrière afin de développer l’activité du club en plein air. Nous souhaitons avons tout mettre en avant la découverte du milieu équestre à travers la pédagogie, les activités autour du cheval pour les enfants, tout cela dans un environnement naturel et calme.  Que ferons-nous de cette cagnotte? Aujourd’hui, nous souhaitons créer cette nouvelle carrière afin de développer l’activité du club. Pour cela, nous avons besoin d’un apport conséquent afin de financer notre projet. Effectivement, nous voulons tout mettre en œuvre pour le bien-être de nos chevaux et faciliter l’approche de l’animal pour petits et grands en toute sécurité.Cette carrière serait un atout supplémentaire pour accueillir petits et grands dans une structure sécurisée et encadrée en plein air.En restant dans un esprit pédagogique et sécurisant (en cas de chutes de nos petits cavaliers) mais également en respectant la santé de nos équidés (travail régulier sur un sol sollicitant les sabots et les membres du cheval) nous avons demandé plusieurs devis à différents fournisseurs spécialisés dans le domaine. Malheureusement, les devis actuels, bien que certains raisonnables, restent encore trop élevés pour la trésorerie de notre petite associationC’est pourquoi nous sollicitons donc votre générosité car ensemble rien n'est impossible et notre projet pourra prendre vie !  Toute l'association, bipèdes et quadrupèdes, vous remercierons de tout cœur pour votre participation.

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Two important great books about antinatalism have already been released, but, unless you speak French or German, you might never get to read them. The good news is that you can help out this fundraiser to get them translated into English, so these two books can be read by an international audience, as they deserve. We’re launching this fundraiser in hope that antinatalists see the value in getting these two books translated. Any amount of money, even small amounts, are welcome to help us to get to the fundraiser goal. If you don’t have much financial resources, you can also help by spreading the word about this fundraiser to anyone you think might be interested.  The fundraiser goal is 10.000 euros, which is roughly about 11000 dollars. All money will go into hiring someone to translate the book. If the fundraiser doesn’t reach its full goal, any given money will still go into translating as much as possible.  You can read more about the two books in the description below.   The Art of Guillotining Procreators : an Anti-natalist Manifesto (L’ART DE GUILLOTINER LES PROCRÉATEURS : MANIFESTE ANTI-NATALISTE) Released: 2006 By Théophile de Giraud  «Published in 2006 (same year as Benatar's famous «Better Never to Have Been») and written in French, this book is one of the few to be entirely dedicated to antinatalism, developed as a system. Spiced with black humour, it methodically dismantles most of the classical pronatalist arguments and shows the vices hidden behind the supposed virtues of bringing a child into the world. Its chapters cover subjects as the right to sue one’s parents in justice if one feels uncomfortable about having been born ; mandatory parenting classes in schools to prevent child abuse, mistreatment or neglect ; strike of the wombs as a political way of action ; and feminism as the key to overcome the phallocratic fertility obsession. Ecologically concerned, it adresses the overpopulation problem, pleading for a non-violent reduction of global human population to 100 millions of people. On the whole, this essay tries to demonstrate that having children is incompatible with ethics, and that adoption is the only moral way to build a family. This book also contains many antinatalist thoughts from various reknown authors throughout the ages and countries, so constituting an anthology of quotes against procreation.» Review, summary and short extracts here from Francois Tremblay’s blog «The Prime Directive» Theophiles book is currently out of print in french, but can be bought used on Amazon «ANTINATALISM. A Manual.» (German title: Antinatalismus. Ein Handbuch, 736 pages).Released: 2017 By Karim Akerma This book on ANTINATALISM is designed as a manual from A-Z. It pursues the ethical purpose of making readers willing to procreate change their mind. Readers already critical towards procreation will be corroborated in their antinatalist attitude. In order to propagate non-propagation the book presents a series of new reflections and neologisms on antinatalism. At the same time the manual makes use of a wealth of arguments and statements on natality from thousands of years. Even though some of these arguments and statements may belong, as it were, only to the outskirts of antinatalism, they are still proof of the fact that man – as a cultural being – has always been able to take a critical stance against the bio-social radical of procreation. In as much as it advocates universal antinatalism the book also takes into account other sentient beings, thus claiming: It is almost always better not to act in such a way that a sentient being begins to exist. This is where humanistic antinatalism and ethical vegetarianism meet.  While the original German edition comprises some 735 pages the English translation is set to present a condensed version of about 250 pages. The English edition will focus on systematic elaboration of the subject matter rather than on historical exemplification. The german edition can be bought hereKarim

Hello     Tomek hopes to finally complete his winter ascent of 8,126m (Nanga Parbat). With each passing year the scale of the project has increased, becoming a major project and healthy obsession, stoked by Tomek's stubbornness. During the 2012/2013 expedition Tomek reached 7,400m, the highest that anyone has reached in 16 years (in 1997 Zbigniew Trzmiel / Krzysztof Pankiewicz team, Trzmiel reached a height of 7,800m. This expedition was led by Andrzej Zawada going from the Diamir valley, through the Kinshofer pass). The few nights spent alone at an altitude of over 7,000m, in a hole in the snow, attracted interest, attention and appreciation from the Polish and global climbing community. Tomek has shown that he and the mountains go together. They understand and respect each other and Tomek's presence on Nanga Parbat is no accident. For him and some of the supporters of the expedition, it makes perfect sense. This project shouts for completion. Tomek wants to successfully end several years of trying to achieve his goal and to free his mind from the vision of the summit of Nanga Parbat and prove, both to himself and the world, that it is worth persevering in the pursuit of a goal. This goal is real and imminent. Wanda Rutkiewicz said "the value of the climb is determined not only by whether your reach the top, but how you climbed", and Tomek wants to achieve his goal with these words in mind. Climbing to the top of Nanga is not about conquering or taming the mountain. It is about being face to face with a perfect beauty and becoming a force 1,000 times more powerful than yourself. Above all it is about overcoming your own weaknesses. Last year's collection on (Polish crowdfunding service) received a very enthusiastic response. The team collaborated with Simone Moro's Italian expedition taking the Shell route. Tomek and David Goettler reached an altitude of 7,200m.    By supporting us financially, donators have also shown that they too believe in the idea that a person, not a system, nor various official bodies and organisations, has the right to realise their own goals and self assess their potential and overcome their own weaknesses. In the words of Marek Klonowski "the collections showed that people yearn for freedom”; freedom, understood as the right to choose their own path, which does not require a permit or acceptance from any system. There have been many attempts to try and ascend Nanga Parbat in winter. 1) 2010/2011 expedition from the Diamir face. Tomek and Marek Reached an altitude of 5500.. 2) 2011/2012 expedition from the Diamir face. Attempt of the classic Kinshofer route (collaboration with Simone Moro and Denis Urubko, using a different Diamir route). Reached an altitude of 5500  3) 2012/2013 expedition from the Rupal Face by the Shell route - Tomek reached a solo altitude of 7,400m  4) 2013/2014 Shell route, team composed of Tomek Mackiewicz, Marek Klonowski, Jacek Teler, Paweł Dunaj, Michał Dzikowski and Michał Obrycki. Cooperation with the expeditions of Simone Moro and David Goettler, reached an altitude of 7,200 m). Marek Klonowski and Michał Dzikowski left the expedition after a fiev weeks. Paweł Dunaj and Michał Obrycki were caught in an avalanche at the end of the expedition. They were seriously injured, but thankfully both of them survived the accident. Simone Moro he returned to BCafter reaching the second camp at 6100m.      5) 2014/15 Tomek & Elisabeth Revol 7800m Diamir   6)2015/16 Tomek & Elisabeth Revol 7600m Diamir  Tomek will undertake the 7th expedition with and is planning to take the Messner route from the Diamir face. He & his partner will make an ascent, possibly by the Messner route as well. After many struggles and several years of joint and team expeditions, Tomek decided to go to Nanga with Eli. Tomek: "I am most effective climbing on my own, taking my own route and going at my own rhythm in small team alpine style. My attention isn't distracted, I'm focused on specific actions and follo

Incidentally, we had to defend our TV Tower before we could watch 'Twin Peaks', in 1993.  In my book, I want to explain how 'Twin Peaks: The Return' (2017) is commenting on the intervening 25+ years of *our* life, as well as to comment myself on the enduring relevance of 'Twin Peaks' as a work of art, including some surprise comparisons, such as to the famous Lithuanian art nouveau genius Čiurlionis. The present campaign is intended to support the research work on and writing of the book. 'Twin Peaks' invites and  stimulates *creative watching*: a close and slow reading of images, as opposed to fast consumption.  This book is also meant to be a  statement in favour of *creative television*, one that can afford supporting (and sustaining) production on grounds different than commercial calculation.  The planned duration of the process leading to the final draft of the book (complete with illustrations) is (less than) 3 months. It will be delivered to supporters — and promoted in public events — in a digital format. However, opportunities to publish it on paper will also be explored. The author has lectured on cultural studies in Lithuanian universities, and has taken interest in David Lynch's work for many years. He is also a spiritus movens behind the Twin Peaks 2017 Club, a public initiative aimed at encouraging popular debate on popular culture.  Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

PsyClean Crew needs a wind- and waterproof area!After 5 years of working in the field, endless efforts to install tarps to keep the crew dry and warm, we're now looking forward to The Dome. This star-tent will be the centre of our community, a dry and cosy space for our eco-warriors. About the projectThe PsyClean Crew is a volunteer-based initiative aiming towards more environmental awareness on open-air events. By involving "regular" festival visitors, we're inviting them to a life-changing journey. Here they face the other side of a commercial event, gain some ecological sensitivity and get the chance to work as a team fuelled by love and acceptance. It is our hope, that this knowledge is then shared with their friends –  also "regular" visitors – and together we can create a critical mass of conscious and respectful festival visitors.The PsyClean Crew has worked on almost 30 festivals, involving more than 350 volunteers, who have dedicated their time and energy to stand up for the greener future, regardless of the atmospheric conditions, repeatedly and many times.Now we'd like to award their contribution with a 100% waterproof and cosy community tent. As a project we can't afford to buy The Dome without the help of You. About The DomeOur new community area will provide dry seating spots for ~80 volunteers. We'll equip it with carpets, bean-bags, shoe cases, coat hangers/dryers and a small tea/coffee station, where they can always grab a warm drink. It will be illuminated with solar-powered lights. It will be a perfect space to rest after working hard in the field. :-) Please meet The Dome!All the sides can be closed with zipped walls if needed for better wind/water protection.  We've already received a price offer for The Dome from the local factory in Poland, the closest manufacturer to our location. Our crowd-funding goal represents this price offer plus the campaign costs. Click to make a contribution.* Give what you can.* All payments are secureThank you!The PsyClean Crew

Es sind Anpassungen in: Sprache-, Beschäftigung und Physiotherapie, medizinische Versorgung. Und dies alles ist für sie alle sehr belastend, denn es gibt in der Familie noch zwei weitere gesunde Kinder, die auch ihre Bedürfnisse haben. Elandri kann nicht normal essen, sie wird nach einem festen Rhythmus über eine Sonde ernährt. Also über flüssige Nahrung, und daher sind Nahrungsergänzungen und Vitalstoffe lebensnotwendig für sie.Sie muss alle drei Stunden umgebettet werden, um Wundliegen zu vermeiden. Darüber hinaus ist sie auf ein spezielles Bett angewiesen, das genau auf ihre Bedürfnisse angepasst ist.Aktuell braucht sie einen neuen Rollstuhl, der ihren heranwachsenden Körper unterstützt. Sie hat tägliche eine Art epileptische Anfälle und ihr Gehirn muss daher regelmäßig überwacht werden. Auf Grund der Anfälle sind die Kosten für ihre Behandlungen sehr hoch.  Mit DEINER Spende können wir Elandri die beste Versorgung und damit Lebensqualität ermöglichen. Gesegnete Grüßeaus NamibiaIHR könnt mehr über ELANDRI van Wyk auf dieser Seite erfahren: https://www.facebook.com/ElandriVanWyk/?fref=ts
