Peter Hofschröer & Barbara Hofschröer ('Grandma B')

Even if you cannot support this appeal financially, please share it with all who might be able to. Listen to Brian Gerrish and Alex Thomson present the Hofschröer case in full at: https://soundcloud.com/ukcolumn/despatches-hofschroer-13032018-1912 A version of that discussion with presentation of some images is at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x0ctbdNqTE  Update of 17 May 2018: Thanks to the continuing fantastic generosity of donors, the full amount of €3,600 has now also been raised to settle the bill of Dr Klaus Burtscher, a court psychiatrist who wrote a full refutation of Prof. Manfred Walzl's sectioning order which placed Peter Hofschröer in the Sigmund-Freud-Klinikum in Graz. Dr. Burtscher writes that Walzl cited erroneous literature and repeatedly went well beyond his professional limits in asserting that Peter represented a danger to society, and that the court order to section him is therefore unsound. Peter's lawyer (whose full bill donors have now paid) has submitted this as part of his appeal to the court to have Peter released. Funds continue to be necessary for: (a) any possible additional expenses incurred as the court case goes on;(b) hiring an English barrister to contest York Social Services' ongoing kidnap of Barbara Hofschröer ('Grandma B'). Thank you again, especially on Peter's behalf. We call him on his ward telephone number as often as we can, and he remains in good spirits and profoundly grateful for all your efforts for him "and thereby for tens of thousands of other victims of psychiatric abuses", as he rightly puts it.  Update of 10 May 2018: The whole of Peter's lawyer's fees (EUR 12,000 or GBP 10,600) have now been collected thanks to your fantastic generosity. The request has just been submitted to Leetchi.com to transfer this sum directly to the lawyer's Viennese bank account. Funds are still needed: Several thousand pounds to secure a good barrister to challenge, in the English courts, York Social Services' continuing kidnap of Barbara Hofschröer (Grandma B). Although no legal counsel has yet been identified for Barbara's case, the publicity of this appeal has already pressured York Social Services and the Sigmund-Freud-Klinikum in Graz, Austria, into allowing mother and son to have regular and unmolested phone calls from the captivity of their respective 'care' facilities, after years of Barbara's having been held incommunicado or with a social worker breathing down the phone line.  Original appeal text follows: Peter Hofschröer is incarcerated for life in a psychiatric facility in Graz, Austria, without ever having been examined by a mental health professional in that country. He has had his British house robbed from him, is facing the prospect of having his Austrian home stolen too, and when his case began to be raised pointedly in the House of Lords, he was fitted up with ludicrous and ever-changing accusations of possessing child pornography, the details of which accusations have never been forthcoming. In fact, the only mental health examination that Peter has ever had has been by Dr Elizabeth Gethins in Derby, who concluded, "I can find no evidence to suggest that Mr Hofschröer is suffering from a mental illness." Peter's crime seems to be knowing too much about paedophile-enabling networks in the public authorities in and around the city of York. His persecutors have followed him effortlessly across the borders of three European countries. Peter has been repeatedly let down by English lawyers, has no access to money, and now requests your funding to enable him to engage one of the finest and most conscientious advocates in Austria who is able to take on this case, through to the end of a court challenge of Peter's patently unlawful mental health sectioning, for €11,000 (about USD 13,500 or just under £10,000 sterling). Secondly, he requests funding for a legal challenge of the secret Court of Protection's obvious failures to do the job they were set up to do by protecting the intere

Ihr Lieben, Frei nach dem Motto “man läuft für all jene, die selber nicht laufen können” möchte ich am 16.09.2018 den 45. Berlin-Marathon laufen, um Spenden für die Stiftung der Deutschen Multiple Sklerose Gesellschaft (DMSG) zu sammeln.Multiple Sklerose (MS) ist eine entzündliche Erkrankung des Zentralen Nervensystems, die unter Anderem mit Lähmungen und Sehstörungen einhergeht und zu Behinderungen führen kann. MS kann jeden treffen und betrifft dann nicht nur den Patienten. Diese Krankheit trifft auch Freunde und Familie. Die Stiftung der DMSG sammelt Spenden, um Patienten und Angehörige im Leben mit der Krankheit zu unterstützen und fördert Forschungsprojekte zum besseren Verständnis, zur besseren Diagnose und zur besseren Behandlung von MS. Durch die Arbeit der Stiftung wird die Behandlung und das Leben mit MS für alle Betroffenen leichter.Ich bin ein gesunder Mensch und diesen Luxus möchte ich nun nutzen um Menschen zu helfen, denen das Glück von Gesundheit nicht beschert wurde. Inspiriert wurde ich dazu von einer besonderen Person. Ines Kübler hat mehrere Familienmitglieder, die an MS erkrankt sind. Letztes Jahr hat sie ihren ersten Triathlon absolviert und damit Spenden für die DMSG gesammlt. Dieses Jahr wollte sie sich den Traum vom ersten Marathon erfüllen und diesen nutzen um erneut Gelder zu sammeln. Nun hat sie sich aber im Training verletzt und muss ihre Marathonteilnahme schweren Herzens absagen. Getreu dem Anfangsmotto “Man läuft für all jene, die selber nicht laufen können” möchte ich nun den Berlin-Marathon nutzen um Ines’ Ziel zu erreichen und Spenden für die DMSG sammeln. Wenn man etwas aus eigener Kraft nicht schaffen kann, dann schafft man es immer gemeinsam! Das gilt für die Verwirklichung von Träumen, aber noch mehr für das Leben mit einer chronischen Erkrankung. Ich spende meine Kraft, Zeit und Energie, um auf die Deutsche Multiple Sklerose Gesellschaft aufmerksam zu machen.Wer mich dabei unterstützen möchte und mir dazu noch eine Extramotivation für den Marathon geben will, kann einfach auf den “teilnehmen” Button klicken und eine Spende hinterlassen. Ich freue mich sehr über jede Einzelne. Die Aktion läuft bis zum 16.9., an dem Tag möchte ich den Berlin-Marathon unter 3:15:00 absolvieren.Unter #SisufürMS könnt ihr auf Twitter verfolgen, wie ich mich in den letzten Wochen im Training und dann beim Marathon schlagen werde. Vielen Lieben Dank für eure Spende oder auch einfach nur für das Verbreiten meiner Aktion, Maike

Transit Home in Kathmandu

Transit Home in Kathmandu

Welcome to this money pot !The goal is well-defined: our mission is to build a better life for children in Nepal and to create the first Transit Home in Kathmandu.We support THE CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD (excerpt): Article 9 (Separation from parents): "Children have the right to live with their parent(s), unless it is bad for them. Children whose parents do not live together have the right to stay in contact with both parents, unless this might hurt the child". Article 27 (Adequate standard of living): "Children have the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and mental needs. Governments should help families and guardians who cannot afford to provide this, particularly with regard to food, clothing and housing". What is a Transit Home?  It is a safe space for 30-35 children that are either run aways, street children or children that are victims of abuse. You should know that majority of those children are victims of their parents poor financial situation which is something we are adressing as well. Goal is to create an enviroment that can protect them and will be a solid foundation for their future set up. We follow 2 major goals: - provide a safe space until next steps are legally well defined in cooperation with relevant authorities- check in on family background to see if partents can be empowered to take the child back We decided to collaborate and join forces with with Child NGO Federation-Nepal (http://www.cnfnepal.org). Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!Love bbuildsupnepal

Syrian school-room for the poorest kids

Syrian school-room for the poorest kids

Hi, the three sets of images show you how Moataz – a young motivated community-minded trained school-teacher living in Southern Syria, in Tafas, Daara – brought back to the poorest of kids in the locality their much-loved school-room. WHAT WE NEED? This coming semester he needs some financial support of 700€ to pay for the running costs of the school-room since he lost his job as a bookseller during the 30th June 2018 attacks on the southern region where he lives, and until he can get back earning again.  About the 30 June attacks: Click to read the article I wrote about it on Medium  So for this appeal, we're hoping to get him and the kids a sum of 700€ which will assist Moataz in paying fees and the modest salary he lost when the bookshop was destroyed, so he can continue giving kids the learning experience they love for the upcoming autumn 2018 teaching semester; yet, of course, any amount we can reach beyond 700€ can also be put to good use.  THE CURRENT SITUATION: Moataz has been sharing some of the school-rooms repair process, from kids so excited to hear of a new course, that they helped scrub away the dust and debis, then the rebuild, a few days ahead of Moataz opening, albeit temporarily, before hopefully getting some support through this appeal to keep the school-room open for another semester. After this initial appeal/fundraiser the plan is to be finding suitable sponsor and or organisation to maintain the good work he's already done.     Cleaning-up (post 30th June shelling) with Moamen (8 years old), Mohammed (10 years old), Monaster (6 years old) and Mossa (8 years old): Re-making the wall for the school-room to make it secure again:  Temporary re-opening of the school-room (and we're keeping our fingers crossed we can keep it open for the new autumn semester with your help!!) – the girl receiving a daily award is Arwa (6 years old).    SOME BACKGROUND: Originally the school-room was an empty space below where Moataz lives and for 2 years he was paying out of his own pocket, whilst working in a bookstore alongside having borrowed a bit of cash. But on 30th June that bookstore was part of the collateral destruction of a shelling over Tafas. He bought the school desks from a local carpenter.  ADDITIONAL PRACTICAL STUFF ABOUT THE SCHOOL-ROOM: The school-room is ideally located next to his home which means that kids have access to a clean toilet facility and they can also get clean drinking water.  WHO IS MOATAZ, WHO YOU'D BE SUPPORTING? In terms of Moataz's background, he's a 28 year old Syrian educated in English literature from Damascus University and is a father and husband and a trained teacher. His favourite book, he told me, is the short Hemingway novel The Old Man and the Sea.   AND, SO MOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!... WHAT/WHO IS CUTE COW THEN? I'm a school teacher myself and saw that Moataz had been looking for help/support to develop his school-room (even before the unfortunate June 30 shelling). And Cute Cow came out of that terrible event. The admin of a coaltion group on facebook had posted about the school-room and she had been helping Moataz and together they decided that Cute Cow: Come! Unite to Educate the Children of War could help give a starting point. And to make sure that these will not be 'the lost generation', most of them as old, of even younger of the civil conflict itself. Thanks for reading, we hope it makes sense. Any advice alongside financial support always welcome too. :)
