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

WHEN ZIG NEEDS A LITTLE PUSH (Quand Zig a besoin d un petit coup de pouce)Traduction francaise en bas de page HI GUYS, As some of you may be aware, I am facing big issues of health which forced me to come back to France in semi emergency without revenue. Symptoms:* Numbs hands, legs, arms and feets (feeling I slept on it) permanently with sometime very painfull moments.* Difficulty to control my moves perfectly, grab objects, or type on a keyboard.* Electric pain running though my spine* Overall impression to be plugged to a 220V plugTHIS IS A RESULT OF ME CONSUMMING TOO MANY BALLOONS OF NITROUS OXIDE. Articles below: https://yourroom.health.nsw.gov.au/a-z-of-drugs/Pages/nitrous-oxide.aspxhttp://realitesbiomedicales.blog.lemonde.fr/2018/12/28/le-protoxyde-dazote-un-gaz-hilarant-qui-ne-fait-pas-du-tout-rire-les-medecins/?fbclid=IwAR3iCx3CrTfNJCvZxEImJPO7vWbdfsZIo_48vnnReE4GC2jdALsbQCeL7EU I left from my life in Vietnam hoping I could benefit from the French free medical care, however, the authorities here ask me to justify that I lived 3 months here.... Meanwhile difficult to work, but I also need a treatment which can be costly. I also need to settle in France and it will take time for me to be able to have revenue again. Difficult to ask my parents for cash again as they are both retired with not much... That is why I call for outsiders generosity to try starting again a life here and get the medical care I need. Part of the cash will also help me reimburse those who lent me money in Vietnam to handle my health issues there. Meanwhile, I will still try to be looking for DJ gigs to start somewhere... New life, new challenges and joy. Thanks for any support! CComme certains d'entre vous le savent, je fais face a de gros problemes de sante qui m'ont forces a rentre en France en semi urgence et sans source de revenu. Symptoms:* Fourmis dans les jambes, les bras, les mains et les pieds de facon permanente avec parfois des douleurs assez severes.* Difficultes de controller mes mouvements, d'attraper des objets et meme de taper sur un clavier.* Douleurs electriques dans l'epine dorsale* Impression permanente d avoir les doigts dans une prise de 220vLa cause identifie est l usage excessif de ballons de protoxyde d'azote que nous consommons dans les clubs au Vietnam. See article below in French https://yourroom.health.nsw.gov.au/a-z-of-drugs/Pages/nitrous-oxide.aspx J'ai quitte ma vie au Vietnam en esperant de beneficier de la securite sociale francaise, mais celle ci me demande de justifier que j'ai vecu ici au moins 3 mois pour presenter mon dossier... Pendant ce temps la, je ne peux pas prendre un emploi a temps complet et je n'ai pas le cash pour suivre une therapie qui peut couter. J'ai aussi besoin de m'installer ici, mais je ne beneficie pas des fonds pour recommencer une vie dans ce pays. Dur de demander de l'argent a mes parents qui sont tous deux retraites avec peu... Je ne peux pas non plus commencer un boulot dans cet etat. J'en fait donc appel a la generosite publique pour essayer de redemarrer une vie normale ici et avoir assez pour me faire soigner. Une partie du cash me permettra aussi de rembourser ceux qui m'ont avance de l'argent au Vietnam pour m'occuper de ma sante quand j'etais la bas. Pendant ce temps je vais voir ce que je trouve comme gigs et essayer de recommencer quelque part. Nouvelles vies, nouveaux challenge. Merci d'avance de votre aide!

Welcome to our campaign - Ahlan wa Sahlan :) We are fundraising to plant more than 1000 olive trees in Palestine and need your help to make this possible. Olive trees are symbolic of Palestinian identity and attachment to their land, resistance and resilience. For the last forty years, over a million olive trees and hundreds of thousands of fruit trees have been destroyed by the Israeli occupation. "Security reasons" is the justification given by the Israeli’s for the uprooting of trees, while in reality Palestinians' olive trees are destroyed for the expansion of Israeli settlements and their bypass roads, the building of the Israel's "Apartheid wall", and as a result of Israeli settlers' violence in the occupied West Bank. This campaign will target small–scale farmers, low income families, female-headed families, and those disadvantaged from land confiscation and uprooted trees. We have a trusted team of volunteers in Palestine who take care of all the work on ground and provide regular updates on the trees planted with photos which we will share with all our supporters. The planting will be done from the end of November to March 2020. One olive tree costs just £6 and it will help by:- Providing food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years- Saving Palestinian land from Israeli theft- Assisting Palestinians, for whom this remains the main source of livelihood Olive trees carry more than an economic significance in the lives of Palestinians. They are not just like any other trees, they are symbolic of Palestinians’ attachment to their land. Because the trees are draught-resistant and grow under poor soil conditions, they represent Palestinian resistance and resilience. The fact that olive trees live and bear fruit for thousands of years is parallel to Palestinian history and continuity on the land. Palestinians are proud of their olive trees; they take care of them with care and appreciation. Palestine has some of the world’s oldest olive trees, dating back to 4,000 years. Some families have trees that have been passed down to them for generations and the olive harvest season in October bears a socio-cultural meaning where families come together to harvest olive trees bearing in mind that their forefathers and mothers had tended to the same trees several years ago. What better way to keep the Palestinian struggle alive other than by planting an olive tree on the blessed land of Palestine? Baha + Shazad + Zeyn
Hello everyone & welcome to my money pot! I have created this money pot for all friends and family members who would like to contribute to my upcoming projects. As some of you may know, I am starting with a friend of mine an audio engineering company called Brick District, where our work is to polish other artists’ creations to make them sound the best for different environments (cars, earphones, theatres, clubs, etc.). In parallel, as I am passionate about photography, I would like to work in this field to generate some additional revenues while developing my audio engineering company. As such, I need to invest in some equipment (gear) for my future projects in audio engineering and photography, for which I don't have sufficient funding. Thank you very much for all your contributions (large or small) and any other form of support you may provide for my projects!

HiMy name is David Williams and I compete as an u105kg strongman. I have enjoyed some pretty good success in this sport over the last few years and i have now been invited to compete at the World championships in India. I have turned down 4 major international competitions in the last 2 years due to financial reasons, but this time I want to do everything I can to get there to represent my country and do well at the highest level in my sport.
I’m going back to Sudan in August and want to install fly traps to stop the little babies been eaten by flies. Earlier this year I went to Sudan to see some friends. I was a little nervous because of the uprising and the civil unrest but my friends assured me that the people of Sudan were loving and respectful and would never harm anyone. My friends were right. My beautiful, sweet and caring friend Sarra who I had met in London the year before decided to take me and Samah on a surprise visit to Mygoma orphanage in Khartoum. This was the first time I had been to an orphanage and the first time I’ve cried since my dog died. I shit you not.The moment that broke me was when my finger was being held by this tiny little hand that didn’t want to let go. She was no more than a week old and looked me straight in the eyes; she just stared with this helpless look saying ‘don’t leave me’. I kept trying to brush the flies from her eyes but they just wouldn’t f**k off. These bloodsucking flies just wouldn’t stopeating her right in front of me. Yeah that did it. I felt powerless to help and as I looked up at Samah I tried my best to be brave. I could see her struggling as much as me. There were around thirty new-born babies in this small room with four women doing their best to keep them all clean and fed. I asked the women how many rooms the orphanage had, she told me there were 30 rooms with over 600 babies aged between 0-4 years. I asked why there were so many and she explained that it was the only orphanage. In Khartoum, I asked? In Sudan, she replied. When I left, I felt a determination to do something about it. Something achievable, something that would make a difference. Something to get rid of these flies! I’m asking family, friends and their friends to help me to help them. I need a minimum £1,000 for bug-zapping lights and cables. I’m going to install one in each room when I go back. If I can raise more money I will spend it on netting for windows and doors, fans, mosquito nets, etc. The money raised will only be spent on materials needed for the orphanage. There will be no expenses taken out. Every pound raised will be spent by me personally to make sure I achieve this simple goal of getting rid of the flies to ensure better living conditions in the orphanage. All work carried out will be done with my two hands or under my supervision. I will be paying any expenses out my pocket and suppling all labour free of charge. I need £1,000 to make any difference. But I’d like to raise £10,000 to make big difference. Please help us create a positive change in a challenging environment. Thanks for reading and giving. All the bestTom x

Kate Fahy, a good friend of ours who lives in England needs our help and her story, somewhat briefly, goes like this: On April 26, on her way home (on her bicycle) she was in an accident with a truck. The truck was pulling out, didn't see her and knocked her down. This resulted in a third degree sprain in the right ankle, a heavy blow to the hand on the same side and injuries to the face as well as a possible jaw fracture (she has lost 1 tooth and has fractured 3, which according to the dentist will have to be replaced with implants and crowns). I hope this is not the case for many, but those who have been in an accident know that the last thing that comes to mind at that moment is to gather evidence for a legal procedure; therefore, although the idea is to start a legal process (with the minimum information gathered by the ambulance) it is going to be a costly, long and complex process with vey uncertain results. So far the recovery is going well thanks to the fact that, in spite of everything, her wounds are superficial. However, there is still a long way to go (the issue of teeth will take months and will be very costly as will the rehabilitation for the ankle). So far, we have collected donated items (crutches, ankle boots and a bike).The insurance didn´t see fit to provide these and it also doesn´t cover dental treatment. The minimun that has to be paid amounts to approximately 300 euro and this includes the most basic and lowest quality dental treatment. Kate's family has also supported her, but financial help is still needed. That's why we want to unite and ask, through this message, for external help. Due to very high student loans, she has over 40.000 euro debt and due to the high living costs of the UK her account is already at max. overdraft, so she has no access to money. Thus, we write to you to ask for your collaboration and would be extremely greatful if you can/want to help out in any way. No amount is too small. All help always adds up! Thank you again for reading and/or contributing! Estefania and Maria Sofía P.S.: If you know someone who would also like to collaborate please feel free to share this message/link. We would be happy to keep you posted on how Kate's recovery is progressing if you so wish.
Hello to everyone! My friend and collegue Ioannis is dealing with a lot of problems lately. He left his country (Greece) in order to work as a data scientist, cause in Greece the Economic Crisis and the lack of jobs is making the living worst and worst.As any of these situations were not difficult enough, another problem came around. His mother is unable to move since to months now with a bad conditioned back. It is necessary to have a surgery but the doctors ask 7000 euros for the operation. It is very important for her to stand up again, all of her kids are immigrants and her husband is working every day 12 hours.I believe that some goals are impossible, although I still have faith in humans. With this platform I have participated many times in buying a gift for someone, this is a different cause though. I am sorry if I wasted your time with the long post. Ioannis is very proud and he is not aware of this pot so for the people that knows us please be very discreet. Any help could make a difference.Thank you again,Apostolos Valsamis
