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.

The ARC Centre

Raising money to help The ARC Centre through Covid-19.The ARC Centre is a unique animal education centre based at Greenvale Primary School. We offer weekly classes to 2-18 year olds as well as school trips, 1:1 sessions, birthday parties and experiences! Due to Covid-19, The ARC Centre has had to shut it's doors. For us, it's not as simple as closing shop and waiting for this to pass. We have to care for all of our residents and make sure that their lives are unaffected by the loss of business. Our business may have stopped, but food, bedding, vet bills and electricity usage can't. We are therefore asking you to please donate to help us care for our animals. We so desperately want to be able to have a centre for all of our Rangers to return to at the end of this and won't be able to if we cannot make it through. Thank you in advance,Ranger Louise and Ranger Iain.

Help fund a cochlear implant surgery for 18 month old baby

Raising a funding campaign as I came across the story of Marc Alexander, 18 month baby boy born in Haiti and diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). Long story short, Haiti does not have the proper medical infrastructure and the government support to help this little boy get a cochlear implant surgery that would give him the ability to hear and speak. The longer he waits to get the implant, the more irreversible speech and development delay will occur. This would cost USD 30,000 including a trip abroad to get the surgery done (I myself have done research for my daughter and no kidding, it really cost that much). I spoke to his mother who didn't know what to do and who to turn to, and I felt the need to help them. As a French national and a Hong Kong resident , and as a mother of a 6 months deaf baby myself, my family is fortunate enough to have access to the best-in-class health support, excellent medical care and infrastructure ...and this is all (or almost) FREE!! We tend to forget how lucky we are. This little boy does not share our luck.Please take some time to read his story, DONATE and SHARE THIS POST to help him get access to a cochlear implant surgery, this amazing, life changing technology that will give him back the gift of hearing and speech.Carine Story of Marc Alexandre: Hello everyone. We are Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty, parents of 18 months old Marc-Alexandre. We live Haiti, one of the most under-developed country in the world.We suspected the deafness of our son when he was 2 months and a half, as he was not reacting to sound. Due to lack of medical resources and infrastructure in Haiti, we were unable to obtain a diagnosis right away. When Marc-Alexandre turned 12 months old, we had been recommended to have him checked out in Republic Dominican. Without a second of hesitation, we took out all of our savings and bought a flight for the 3 of us to go meet an ENT specialist there. The results were devastating: Marc-Alexandre was diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). We were not sure what to do or where to turn. We do not know if he would ever say, "I love you Mommy and Daddy." We have prayed for a happy, productive life for Marc-Alexander, and we want him to go to school and someday graduate from university to pursue a career and a life that he chooses.The ENT was adamant that our son needed cochlear implants; Implanting Marc will give him access to sound which will provide him with the only chance of age-appropriate speech and language development. This will provide him the opportunity to a better education and independent employment as an adult in the future. If not implanted, it may lead to permanent changes in the auditory cortex in the brain which may make it impossible to benefit from a cochlear implant or any form of hearing restoration surgery in the future. The cochlear implant bypasses the damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. The signals are generated by the implant and are sent passed the auditory nerve to the brain where the signals are recognised as sounds. However, the cochlear implants will cost USD$30,000 as we do not have insurance and there is no government social subsidy or help of any kind. We are raising money to pay for medical expenses including surgery, cochlear implant device, and a trip abroad for the surgery.Marc is growing up and as his parents; we know we have to do something. The only future for our son is to hear with cochlear implants. Just like everyone else, we want to give him the best possible future there is.Life is so precious and this innocent boy who deserves the right to live normally. In advance, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your incredible moral and financial support. Thank you for helping us change the life of our child. Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty

Marco & Thijs - Bike4Kika

All, This summer (4th August) myself and my son Thijs will be biking ~1000km from Oberrieden, Switzerland to Schagen, the Netherlands. We will be following the river Rhein all the way to the Netherlands. We aim to complete the bike tour in 10 days. We are doing this to raise money for child cancer research. Reason we are doing this is that a little over a year Thijs’s grandad passed away from cancer. I also had cancer and was lucky enough to survive, as such we want to do what we can to help other people that have cancer. Every little bit helps. All the money donated will go 100% to KIKA, which has been set up in 2002 to fund innovative research for Child Cancer. Treatments have significantly improved but still 1 in 4 children, diagnosed with cancer dies. The charity’s aim is to increase the survival rate of children suffering from cancer from 75% to 95% by 2025. They aim to do this by funding scientific research, improving treatments (less pain, higher cure rate and improved quality of life), concentrating expertise and treatment for children to accelerate experience. We hope you want to support with us this cause as no one especially not a child, should have to die from cancer. Thank you!Thijs & Marco

COVID-19 help-project El Salvador

Hello everyone & welcome to this cause! IF YOU DONATE, PLEASE LEAVE ALWAYS A MESSAGE. JUST SAYING YOUR NAME SO I CAN HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR EMAIL AND I CAN UPDATE YOU. During the COVID-19 crisis we have all been affected! As Salvadorian I felt worried about how such a poor country would react to this emergency, since most of the Salvadoreans economically survive with their daily incomes. If you are reading this, you are from the lucky ones (like me!) and even though it is hard-time, we can rely on our monthly income to surpass this crisis. That's why my family and I started to put together emergency food baskets filled with food for one week for more or less 4 persons for people who have lost the job or haven't sold anything during the day.1 emergency food basket contains * 5 pounds rice* 5 pounds beans * 1 liter oil* 5 pasta packs * 2 sauce packs * 1 pound of salt * 4 instant soups * 1 pound cornflour for tortillas * 1 pack of cookies * 1 pack of cereal the cost of goods of such a kit (packed in a reusable bag) is 20 USD. All components have been/will be bought from market stands and not from the supermarket! If you want to help a family donate a kit! Or donate however much you can. We will notify you to whom did your pack go! Thank you & put your name so I can send you the picture! 💙All good things that go around, come around. 🇸🇻 DISCLAIMER: If you try to pay with a debit card from El Salvador, it can happen that Leetchi can not proceed with the payment and your bank will block the amount but the transaction would fail. This amount will be unblocked after! DONT WORRY! Please try again with a credit card. This action has been privately organized by a private family in El Salvador. We can not issue a donation receipt.

Nandri Trust Association fighting Coronavirus India 2020

Nandri Trust Association fighting Coronavirus India 2020

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Nandri Trust Association aims at enabling women to earn their own money and thereby to make their own choices and become self-reliant through tailoring and stitching projects. Since 2009, some underprivileged and poor women from rural and very backward villages around Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu-India) are identified and enrolled in the Nandri Trust Program. Opening up this tailoring training and job opportunity does not only provide them with a salary but also helps to raise confidence and to increase the weight of their voice and their share in decision making processes within their families. The Nandri Trust Program is structured around 3 steps that are all interdependent: 1- The 10 months intensive tailoring course within the Nandri Trust Tailoring Institute based in Mahabalipuram provided for free. Here the women learn the basic sewing, stitching and tailoring skills and thereby enabling them to continue with us in a professional working environment. 2- After the training the women are given the possibility to join our sewing studio as permanent staff. All the employees have followed and completed the Nandri training course. 3- Childcare: these women mostly mothers, poors and without family support struggle for sustenance during the training. It is to meet their needs that we created a small kindergarden. the “Nandri Kids Villa” where the mums can earn professional skills while their kids are properly taken care of. The entire structure is managed by women who took part of the program. We started the project back in 2009, the rental cost were entirely covered by donations till now, we were facing some difficulties to cover all the training costs (buying the fabrics / materials and sewing machine) and insuring meals all year long for the women and the kids. In the mid long term, the goal for Nandri Trust was to be self-sustained without having the need for any monetary support from the outside. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, all the ladies in our association no longer have jobs, some of their husbands have also lost their jobs and all these families are struggling to survive with this health crisis. Our association is trying to raise funds to support these women and their families. Your donation is important and precious during this special difficult time! It will help 17 ladies and 36 kids from villages around Mahabalipuram! Thank you for them! 200 rupees = 2 days of meal for 1 family (200 rupees = 2.40 euros)(200 rupees = 2.65 USD) With just 1-click you can donate to a good cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!

Ça roule pour Lulu

Ça roule pour Lulu

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 9 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 (les travaux devraient commencer au printemps 2019 grâce à l'argent récolté depuis la création de l'association). 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.C’est pourquoi la famille a décidé de créer l’association afin de lever des fonds pour améliorer le quotidien de Lucas. De nombreuses manifestations sont à venir en 2020 (soirée théâtre, marché fermier et artisanal, 4e édition de la randonnée semi nocturne...) 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 https://www.facebook.com/Ça-roule-pour-Lulu-115857582219000/

Ambasada Rog

Ambasada Rog

Community space for refugees, Ljubljana, Slovenia Ambasada Rog is a community space run for the last two years by refugees, activists, journalists, cultural workers, lawyers, unemployed, parents and everyone who believes in solidarity and the power of a community. We understand Ambasada Rog as a space of mutual support and we all work on a volunteer basis. Our work includes numerous activities: daily, we cook and provide a free meal for 20-25 people, we provide social and legal support to asylum seekers; we organize campaigns and protests, as well as educational workshops and events like exhibitions, concerts, dance classes and excursions. Since we wish to remain politically independent, we work outside the institutional framework and rely mostly on our solidarity network and our supporters. They are the ones who most effectively participate in our efforts. We invite you to become part of this network and support our work with your contribution. Any donation is welcome and it will be fully used for our activities. Most of the expenses go for cooking free meals and offering social support to migrants and asylum seekers, who are left without basic means. Our activities take place in the Autonomous Factory Rog, a former bicycle factory which has become a complex community with over fifteen active collectives and spaces. Since 2016 the space is under threat of eviction by the municipality which also filed a lawsuit against eight activists. A small part of every donation is thus also used to cover the legal expenses which allow us to continue using this space. Your support will enable us to continue with our activities - to mutually create an open community and confront our country's most inhumane policies. For all our activities please visit our Facebook page as it is the best source of daily updates and on our work. Or come visit us at Rog factory in Ljubljana! Skupnostni prostor za begunce, Ljubljana Ambasada Rog je prostor, ki ga že dve leti skupaj upravljamo begunci, aktivisti, novinarji, kulturni delavci, pravniki, brezposelni, starši in vsi, ki verjamemo v solidarnost in moč skupnosti. Ambasado Rog razumemo kot prostor druženja in podpore. Prav vsi delujemo prostovoljno. Naše delo obsega dnevno kuhanje brezplačnih obrokov za 20-25 ljudi, nudimo tudi socialno in pravno pomoč prosilcem in prosilkam za azil, organiziramo kampanje in proteste, izobraževalne delavnice ter dogodke kot so razstave, koncerti, plesni tečaji ter izleti. Ker želimo ostati politično neodvisni, delujemo izven okvirov institucij in se v prvi vrsti zanašamo na solidarnostno mrežo podpornikov. Tudi vi lahko postanete del te mreže in nas podprete z donacijo. Vsak prispevek je dobrodošel in bo v celoti porabljen za naše delovanje. Največji strošek predstavljata kuhanje brezplačnih obrokov ter socialna pomoč prosilcem za azil, ki ostajajo brez osnovnih sredstev za preživetje. Naše aktivnosti potekajo znotraj avtonomne Tovarne Rog, nekdanje tovarne koles in danes kompleksne skupnosti, v kateri deluje okoli 15 organiziranih kolektivov. Od leta 2016 občina grozi z izselitvijo, vložila pa je tudi civilno tožbo proti osmim aktivistom. Manjši del vsake donacije se zato uporabi tudi za te administrativne stroške, ki nam omogočajo nadaljno uporabo prostora. Z vašo podporo bomo lahko še naprej nadaljevali z aktivnostmi. Pomagajte nam pri sogradnji odprte skupnosti in platforme, ki se spopada z najbolj nehumanimi politikami naše države. Več o nas, o naših dejavnostih in novostih najdete na Facebooku. Ali pa nas obiščite v Tovarni Rog v Ljubljani!

Sid's 'Hair Cut' fundraiser for Auryn's Heros  #aurynsheroes

Sid's 'Hair Cut' fundraiser for Auryn's Heros #aurynsheroes

Hi everyone,Last year, when Auryn was just 4, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.Even though he’s close to beating it, this cancer (just like all the worst villains) has a nasty habit of coming back. There’s a clinical trial for a vaccine that helps prevent relapse in the Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital, New York and we’d love to help get Auryn on the trial in early 2021.The total cost of the vaccine and travel etc. is €375,000. Every contribution, no matter how small will help beat this bad guy once and for all.Every donation will make you a hero to Auryn. Our 10 yr old son Sid is going to get his hair cut to raise money for this little hero Auryn #aurynsheroes. A kid getting his hair cut doesn’t sound that impressive, but Sid’s been growing his hair for quite a while now, it’s very long (see above) and it’s his pride and joy, however, it’s getting chopped.... All money raised will go to the Auryn’s Hero Fund to help this 5yr old boy battling cancer- 13 rounds of chemotherapy, two major surgeries, two stem cell transplants, 14 rounds of radiotherapy and multiple bone marrow aspirates, blood transfusions and other medical procedures. There’s still a few more treatments to come. Please donate if you can by using this Leetchi page (orange 'Contribute' button on the right) so Sid can see how much he has raised and all money will then be donated to the Auryn’s Heros Go Fund Me page in one go once the hair has been shorn during the Halloween mid-term. ( If info appears in French, go to bottom of page and translate)Also don't forget to share with your family and friends.Thanks so much from Alan, Karen, Max and Sid.#aurynsheroeshttps://www.facebook.com/aurynsheroes/https://www.instagram.com/aurynsheroes/

Plato Recovery Scheme

Plato Recovery Scheme

Hello everybody! You may or may not know by now that the Plato residence was recently broken into, and equipment in excess of £2000 was taken from us while we were asleep. Among these possessions, most significantly, was the laptop we used to record and store our own recordings - recordings which we had spent many, many hours working on. We were in fact nearing the point at which we were ready to start sharing these with you. Unfortunately, these files were not backed up (learnt our lesson the hard way there didn’t we), and so we have lost a huge amount of the progress we made over the past few months towards better music. Also stolen was George's Eastman electric guitar which is another heartbreaker for us; it cost around £950 and added a distinct element to our sound. We also lost 2 SONOS speakers - we use these to listen back to our recordings and ideas in optimum sound quality, to constantly evaluate what we're doing. Our request to you therefore, whoever you are, is to donate if you feel inclined to do so, to our crowdfunder so that we can overcome this setback. Given the current worldwide crisis that we are all facing, we expect very little sympathy from anyone. We know that we are still incredibly lucky to live in a country that is more financially stable and generally safer than most, and that we are all in good health. We are just doing our best to deal with the situation that we find ourselves in, and the massive amount of support and sympathy we have in fact already received, combined with several suggestions to set this crowdfunder up, from our fans, family and friends, seemed to justify its creation. Please only give what you can afford. We’ll accept every penny, probably even obscure foreign ones if that's all you have to offer. The sooner we get back on track the sooner we can start sharing much more with all of you guys. There may even be exclusive content on offer to those who donate (if you want it). We will heal from this regardless, and return even stronger and even more driven. Thank you for taking the time to read this and especially to anyone who has donated!!! If you're not in a position to donate, simply sharing it is more than enough, and we will be forever grateful for every single contribution. With obscene amounts of love and gratification, we thank you again.Plato xxxx

FaceShields for Madrid

FaceShields for Madrid

Buenas tardes equipo! Como sabréis por las noticias, ante la escasez de mascarillas y gafas protectoras, hay grupos de « makers » (gente anónima con impresoras 3D en casa) que fabrican máscaras de protección para médicos, enfermeros y personal no sanitario que trabaja en hospitales, residencias de ancianos, centros de salud etc. Tan sólo un grupo en la sierra Norte de Madrid está haciendo más de 2.000 unidades al día! Protección civil y taxistas voluntarios se encargan de distribuirlas. Mis padres fueron a donar cajas de plásticos transparentes que se utilizan en los despachos para encuadernar documentos y se enteraron de que había escasez de material para imprimir el plástico necesario para fabricar las máscaras. Desde hace unos días estoy en contacto con distintos grupos de makers de la Comunidad de Madrid así como 15DíasPara (https://15diaspara.es/) -movimiento apoyado por la Sociedad Española de Medicina de Urgencias y Emergencias, la Sociedad Española de Geriatría y Gerontología, el Colegio Oficial de Psicólogos de Madrid - para ver cómo podemos aportar nuestro granito de arena. Estos grupos de voluntarios se están quedando sin los filamentos para imprimir el soporte de las máscaras, todas las tiendas donde se podrían adquirir los filamentos están cerradas y hay escasez de plástico en todo el mercado europeo. Stratasys, un fabricante israelí de impresoras 3D y de materiales para imprimir a escala industrial (son proveedores de Airbus, Seat, etc.) con el que colaboramos desde hace mucho tiempo nos podría hacer llegar el plástico compatible con las impresoras domésticas de los grupos de makers de Madrid en tan sólo dos días con un 50% de descuento. El reto que tenemos es alcanzar los 7000€ para poder fabricar unas 7.000 - 8.000 máscaras de protección dependiendo del modelo. Estas máscaras se pueden reutilizar y sirven de protección ante la falta de equipación sanitaria homologada. El pedido lo haría yo directamente y lo recibiría un grupo de voluntarios que se encargaría de distribuirlo a los makers que están fabricando las viseras en casa en la Comunidad de Madrid. Muchas gracias por vuestra contribución! No dudéis en difundirlo. Un abrazo desde Bruselas Enrique

F*CK THIS VIRUS

F*CK THIS VIRUS

Dear members of the No Diet Club(future and old ones 💐) We've been getting dozens of cancellations related to the virus these last few weeks and tried to keep it cool, but after Trump's travel ban we received +100 extra cancellations the same day. We think Trump's decision is out of proportion and not fair for a lot of people, but we totally understand our guests concern and fear for their jobs and families. We feel for you all and sincerely hope that this stressful situation won't last. For our part, yellow vests, retirement strikes and now THIS, goddamn, we've been through a lot of shit last/this year and it's honestly getting harder and harder for us to keep going. When we started this little company 2 years ago, it was only my crazy ass (Claudia) and my partner in food, life, everything (Antho El burrito) doing food tours in London city, living in a dark tiny place with 8 strangers because we couldn't afford any better. We met the most beautiful human beings on the tours we hosted and made soooo many friends from all over the world, US, Australia, Europe, Africa, even Arctic (only one dude though) we just couldn't stop there. We've been working like beasts 7/7, no weekends or holidays for 2 and a half years, nothing but work. Since 2020 we can proudly say that we are a team of 25 passionate young tour guides in 5 cities and for that we can't thank you enough. *feels* Today we have no other option than refunding everyone who has to cancel because of that f*cked up virus and a president who thinks he can blackmail his own citizens / tell them how to live their lives. Entire tours have been canceled for months to come and we have no guarantee to get back what has been lost. We might lose everything this time, our savings and our guides. We opened that money pot as a small compensation for those who are willing to help us. See it as an "early tip" if you are planning on booking with us again. :) You have absolutely no obligation to contribute, but if you do (OMG) even the tiniest amount will help us get through this shitty time for our small company. (and we promise we won't buy any burgers with it) We love you and hope to feed you anytime soon so we can thank you "IRL" and give you a hug when that virus is gone. Until then please take care. ❤️ Team No Diet Club
