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: 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.

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

Support for Aelfin Michel

Aelfin Michel - Critical Condition - Hua Hin, ThailandSadly, on December 31st, Aelfin tragically crashed on a motorbike causing him to suffer severe head and face trauma. Aelfin is currently in ICU under 24 hours medical care and constant support. When Aelfin arrived in emergency he required immediate surgery to remove bleeding on the brain and had part of his skull removed, which will need to be replaced with titanium. His jaw and teeth were severely smashed which will require surgery, as well as other serious facial and head injuries. Unfortunately this is a very critical situation. Due to the severity of his head injuries he has had many operations to date and requires many more, plus 24 hours support and months (if not years) of therapy. The latter is not yet known as we are currently taking it day by day, knowing that each day is a miracle. Aelfin is a fighter and at every set back he is fighting to stay here with us. For those that know him will know his determination and stubbornness. This trait is shining through in his fight for his life. This gives us hope. Holding onto this hope and knowing that Aelfin will keep on fighting, there is a long and very expensive battle ahead of us. He requires many more surgeries, and unfortunately at this stage, we are unsure of the extent of damage and rehabilitation required. We urgently ask all of you to help support Aelfin and his mother, Emma, with the extensive ongoing medical costs and medical care that Aelfin needs now and for the coming months. ALL of the funds donated will be used to cover Aelfin's hospital bills, medical and rehabiliation expenses. We would like to express our gratitude for your kind donations to the SUPPORT AELFIN FUND. Best regards,Aelfin's support team

Coup de projecteur sur le rugby Togolais

Coup de projecteur sur le rugby Togolais

Bonjour à tous, A trois copains, nous nous lançons dans un super projet et nous avons besoin de votre aide ! Le 5 avril prochain, nous allons courir le Marathon de Paris 2020 afin de lever le maximum de fonds pour Togo en Mêlées. Tous les trois joueurs et passionnés de rugby, nous avons grandi et nous sommes construit autour des valeurs de ce sport. Cela n’aurait pas pu être possible sans l’engagement de dizaines de bénévoles tous les week-ends pour nous transmettre leur passion. Nous avons donc à cœur de rendre ce que nous avons reçu. Nous nous sommes tournés vers l’association Terres en Mêlées qui a pour but de promouvoir le rugby dans les pays en développement. Avec l’aide de leur filiale Togo en Mêlées, nous avons monté un projet au Togo où le rugby est en train de devenir un sport très populaire mais aussi un vecteur de cohésion sociale et d’éducation. Ce projet comporte deux étapes. - La première est une levée de fonds afin de financer l’équipement complet d’un terrain (comprenant une installation électrique pour l'éclairage) qui permettra à de nombreux clubs de la région de s’entraîner de jour comme de nuit. L’électricité utilisée pour éclairer le terrain proviendra de l’énergie solaire et sera donc 100% verte et renouvelable. - La seconde est un voyage sur place qui nous permettra de suivre l’avancement du projet, d’amener du matériel (maillots, ballons, chasubles...) et d’animer des séances d’entrainements pour des jeunes joueurs locaux. Le budget total nécessaire est de 5000 euros et l'integralité de la somme recoltée sera investie dans ce projet. Nous comptons donc sur votre soutien pour nous aider à atteindre cet objectif. Chaque euro récolté sera utile donc n’hésitez pas ! Rugbystiquement, Vincent, Paul et Lucas

English version below (click on "voir plus") Mesdames, Messieurs les caravanistes;En cette période sombre qui nous sépare les uns des autres, j'ai besoin de vous rassembler autour d'un projet commun. Devenu depuis peu un habitant d'une installation mobile restant à quai (la discoravane), j'ai entrepris un agencement de l'espace vert m'entourant dans le but de satisfaire mes passions multiples et d'organiser des évènements sportivofestifs.Très vite, cet endroit où peuvent se rencontrer les plus fins esprits du comté de Nice, s'est transformé petit à petit afin d'accueillir des passionnés de musique néo retro futuriste et des sportifs de l'extrême.Cependant, une installation mythique et tant attendue manque toujours à l'appel... Cet équipement, unificateur et porteur de symboles forts, ne pouvait être réalisé sur des bases médiocres, et nécessite un investissement économique important pour être à la hauteur de nos espérances.C'est pour cela que j'ai besoin de vous afin de réaliser ce projet !Pratiquants de planches à roulettes, arsouilles du dancefloor, on en a tous rêvé un jour... Une mini rampe devant la mythique Discoravane. * Tous les fonds récoltés seront utilisés dans les matières premières nécessaires (Bois, visserie, support, outillage)* Dans l'éventualité d'une récolte de fond supérieure au nécessaire, l'argent servira à l'aménagement d'autres projets à vocation collectives sur cet espaceDesign: Matthieu PoutzMerci à tous ! 🔥❤️ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------English versionIn these dark periods that tears us apart, I need your help on a project that brings us together.Since I moved into a moving house stopped forever on a family land (now called the Discoravane), I have been trying to shape the green landscape around me to fulfill my passions and organise small events that brings us together around sports or fiesta.However, I am lacking funds to properly build one mythic equipment that will take us to the next level.I am calling the skate community to help me achieve a collective goal: to build a mini ramp in front of the Discoravane * All the collected funds will be used to buy the source material (wood, screws, tools, plateform)* In the possibility of the funds being superior to the project, the money will goes towards financing other collective projects around the DiscoravaneDesign by Matthieu PoutzThanks for your help ! 🔥❤️

Par ou et comment commencer...Un ami m a invite et conseille de monter cette cagnotte etant vraiment dans l impasse. On ravale sa fierte, on tient compte de la situation et puis oui bah... Ai je le choix...Bcp d entre vous me connaisse, pour les autres je me presente.Pascal Radigois alias patsal44 ou patsallin au poker. Createur de la French poker connexion et du club live poker Allinouest de nantes il y a plus d une dizaine d annee. Expatrie en Thaïlande depuis 7 ans, non pas pour le poker, incompatible avec les montants engages, et ma vie professionnelle ici en Thailande. Je gere un petit bar cosy en rooftop dans le centre de Chiang mai, j ai pu y accueillir d ailleurs certains d entre vous avec un grand plaisir.Je vis une annee catastrophique... Chiang mai est l une des villes les plus polluees au monde et ca commence a ce savoir. Le baht thaïlandais a grimpe de 30 pourcent faisant fuire les touristes au cambodge ou vietnam. La voirie a decide de refaire la rue de mon bar durant les 2 mois de forte haute saison. (rue fermee) J ai eu des pb de visas et j ai du passer les fetes solo au cambodge etant interdit de Thaïlande, occasionnant de fortes depenses non prevues. Je terminerai par ma copine est tombee enceinte et a perdu le bebe a 7 mois, peut etre la moins pire des nouvelles, etant donne la situation financiere dans laquelle je suis. Evidemment avec tout ceci peu de Touriste, Mon bar est un bar a 95 pourcent de touristes, et voila le fameux coronavirus Qui acheve la situation chaotique. Parlons bien parlons peu. Bar ferme, plus aucun revenu jusqu au 12 avril minimum.Plus de famille pour m appuyer. Demander a emprunter, c est deja fait et a 4 chiffres, je les remercie infiniement. Je suis proprietaire de Mon appart que je vends, mais voila rien ne se vend ici Actuellement.

Que ce soit le montant d un buy in, d un verre, ou autres c est salvateur. Merci

Daily wage working families in Iran need help during COVID-19 outbreak

Daily wage working families in Iran need help during COVID-19 outbreak

Amid the shock, pain and fear of the novel Coronavirus, Iran, one of the most affected countries by the virus, has also been suffering from crippling American and international sanctions for years. These sanctions have made thousands of local businesses vanish and reversed the previously decreasing rate of poverty in this country, endangering the livelihood of millions of Iranians. On top of the international isolation, Iranian government has been the embodiment of incompetence and discrepant statistics since the beginning of the outbreak by not shutting down pilgrim sites, offices, banks, and not quarantining the city the outbreak started from and even worse than that by mocking the international measures taken to limit the spread and misinformation campaigns on state TV that lead to the public not taking the disease seriously and continue their daily activities. Since millions are daily-waged in Iran, they suffer from biological poverty if they don’t leave home every day. By only 20 euros you can support one whole family to have acceptable quality of nutrition for a few days.We are directly connected to over fifty families and can send your support directly to them so they can supply themselves for one month without needing to work outside. Since the sanctions have made it impossible to send money to Iran, we have used our network of trusted people that are willing to help with the transaction. You can share the joy of getting through the hard times of quarantine by enabling at least one more family in a highly affected part of the world to also be able to stay safe.
