Aidons Dima, fixeur en Ukraine

Aidons Dima, fixeur en Ukraine

Ils sont nos yeux et nos oreilles sur le terrain, mais leurs noms n’apparaissent presque jamais dans nos reportages. Les fixeurs sont des travailleurs de l'ombre indispensables aux journalistes sur les terrains de guerre. Par leur réseau, leur connaissance du terrain, leur dévotion, ils contribuent à l'information. Ils deviennent notre plus précieux allié, mais aussi, souvent, un ami cher.Dima est de ceux-là.Depuis le début de la guerre du Donbas en 2014, ses compétences et son implication ont fait de lui un des fixeurs les plus demandés d'Ukraine. De nombreuses rédactions du monde entier, telles que le New York Times ou le Washington Post, ont fait appel à ses services. Ainsi que des photographes renommés (Manu Brabo, prix Pulitzer), ou des créateurs de contenu connus (le Youtubeur Le grand JD).Mais Dima n'est pas seulement un excellent fixeur, c'est aussi une personne admirable, intègre, loyale, respectueuse des autres. Des valeurs qui le rendent extrêmement attachant.Le 24 février dernier, jour de l'invasion, Dima travaillait avec plusieurs journalistes dans le Donbas, lorsque tout a basculé. Lui qui avait déjà connu la guerre, étant originaire de la région de Luhansk en territoire occupé, a dû partir soudainement pour organiser l’évacuation de ses proches dans l'ouest du pays.Un exil forcé, sans avoir eu le temps de repasser par son appartement à Kyiv, dans un pays où il est maintenant devenu difficile, en certains endroits, de se nourrir, d'avoir accès à l'eau, de retirer son argent ou de faire le plein d'essence.Comme de nombreux Ukrainiens, Dima ne peut plus travailler, il est devenu un réfugié au sein de son propre pays. Dima a aidé pendant des années à raconter l'Ukraine, maintenant c'est à notre tour de l'aider :C'est pourquoi nous faisons appel à votre solidarité avec le lancement de cette cagnotte.L'argent récolté servira à subvenir aux besoins les plus élémentaires de Dima et ses proches : se nourrir, se chauffer, s'habiller, se mettre en sécurité. Parce que nous, journalistes, avons aussi le devoir de protéger ces acteurs de l'information, sans lesquels, rien ne serait possible dans les zones de guerre.Pour tout cela : aidons Dima.

A call for help for Martin Veise

A call for help for Martin Veise

HELP! No help for severely disabled during COVID19.This post is NOT about the Coronavirus, but about how the system may withdraw help from the weakest citizens.While @Xavier Bettel promises unlimited resources to cover those who will fall out of their jobs due to COVID19, severely handicapped and the weakest citizens lose all help, regardless of their individual situation, condition and dependence.I express my gratitude towards the public initiatives during the pandemic and I am sincerely happy for those who will get financial aid in case of employment termination.So, briefly, here’s what I’m talking about:My uncle, @Martin, suffered a massive brain stroke in November 2018. The stroke was *not* threated by the Robert Schuman Hospital that Martin was taken to. Martin was left paralyzed down through his left side and with severe cognitive damages. Essentially Martin’s wife Anne and his four kids lost him that day. Martin is not even remotely the same person anymore.After being left untreated under miserable conditions at the hospital for a month, Martin was transferred to the Rehazenter. I have previously written about the conditions at the hospital and Rehazenter here: lux-patient.com, and won’t get into the details of the disastrous conditions at the two institutions.*I would however like to underline, that Martin was declared traumatized by his stay at the Rehazenter.*-> This means, that the conditions were so extremely miserable at the Rehazenter, that Martin’s condition as a patient not only declined severely, but additional damage was added to his brain.Martin received 2 months of rehabilitation in Denmark. One of the two months spent de-traumatizing him... After the two months, Martin was dispatched with a comprehensive report explaining his needs as a patient and how he should receive further treatment. The conclusion of the report is clear - Martin still needs intensive rehabilitation in order to be able to live the rest of his life at an acceptable standard. Acceptable standard defined by being able to walk or go to the toilet for example.Martin has been home in Luxembourg since August and has not received rehabilitation since then. Myself and Anne was taking care of Martin at home throughout August and September - the report *clearly* states that Martin needed help 24/7. Practically this means that he needs a team of nurses around him, as well as physiotherapists, ergo therapists, a psychologist and/or psychiatrist and a doctor with neuroscientific knowledge.Despite the urgency, we were not able to get a meeting with Assurance Dependance before October.The amount of responsibility for such a weak patient, with such needs, is beyond comprehensible. My aunt Anne is doing blood tests, regulating blood thinning medicine and all other medications for Martin.After tasting the mud of rock bottom, we at least got some help assigned by Assurance Dependence and by the end of 2019 Martin could start going to a daycare facility in Rollingergrund. *This help has been withdrawn with effect from march 17th, 2020.*Martin hasn’t had a shower for almost a week now. Martin has still not had a chance to rehabilitate. Anne is taking care of Martin 24/7, while trying to homeschool their 3/4 kids who are still in school. No help is provided.ZERO.I would like to underline, that we have not received ANY proactive help from the authorities. This includes any and all doctors we have been in touch with and the health authorities / CNS.You must fight for what you are entitled to by law and you must figure that out yourself. No guidance has been offered at ANY point since November 2018. We had to proactive ask for information about the stroke itself, the further process, what could be done etc.On top of the described problems, there’s no help to get from any authority. We have contacted every instance we could, as well as the Family minister, who referred back to the Rehazenter for help.As a patient, you have a LOT of additional expenses and the public coverage does not correspond to your normal salary, so effectively it means that you will have much less cash available.Now, one should think, that the loss of a husband and father to 4 should be more than enough to work with and that financial troubles should be the least to worry about.This is not the case in this country. Should you be as unlucky as my uncle, Martin, you WILL have a reduced income and much higher expenses.The social authorities cannot offer any help financially, as we are too well off. They recommend that we move out of the country, regardless of 3 of the 4 children being born and raised here.The banks wont extend credit as we are way too poor.The European school will not offer ANY deduction in their school fees. Changing school wouldbe incredible hard for the youngest kids and they would lose 2 years of their respective life’s due to the new language they’d need to adapt to.The insurance has covered absolutely nothing during all this. And I can list example after example.Now, what undeniably will happen, UNLESS something is being done, is that my family will be forced out of the country due to the lack of help from the government, despite contributing to the society for almost 20 years.This would mean that Anne and her 4 kids have lost their husband and father, that the kids will have to change school during their grief and give up 2 years of their life, the family will be forced to leave their home and attempt to successfully move WHILE taking care of a 24/7 patient who needs intensive rehabilitation AND homeschooling 3 kids. This isn’t possible.Let me get to my final words for this round.Imagine yourself in the same situation. Imagine that your spouse, or child, or parent suffers a massive stroke and you would have to go through the same. Imagine, if you had to see your dearest being unable to move or speak, yet being severely mistreated. Imagine loosing your home and telling your children, that they’d have to move school knowing that it costs 2 years of their lives.It’s a horrible thought... and living it is worse.We have literally tried to seek help from the authorities in ANY way possible and we don’t know how to get help at this point.Here’s what you can do to help us:* You can share this post to spread the word* Those who would like to help us financially can donate through this link: https://www.leetchi.com/c/martinveiseThe fundraiser has been requested by several friends of the family. We are forever grateful for the support that you are all giving. This is bright light during dark times. Lastly, I’d like to mention, that the during the last meeting we had with a social worker, it was proposed that we have friends or family take care of Martin on weekends, so that Anne and the KIDS?! Could work. The youngest boys are 12 years of age. We reminded her that we live in 2020 and not 1920 and she then took that back. She had absolutely no words or advice to give. This clearly suggest how dire this situation is...The above is me objectively documenting our situation. I am working on a comprehensive complaint to the court of human rights as well as the EU. This entails detailed information and documentation as well as evidence supporting the potential breaches of law.My recommendation: Hedge yourself. This is real and can happen to anyone.My sincerest gratitude and appreciation towards those who decided to help and especially those who continue to provide help!

Water is Life

Water is Life

During the health crisis of COVID-19, the indigenous Wayuu people of Colombia, are facing a tragedy, they are not able to get enough water to survive. The people of Cabo de la Vela make a living mainly from tourism, selling handicrafts and fishing to provide fresh produce to the hotels and restaurants in the small village.During this world lockdown their livelihood is gone. No tourists sadly means no income.The families cannot pay for the tankers that deliver water to this arid region.With no access to water, such an essential life source, the lives of these communities are threatened. This concern is even greater than the coronavirus for these isolated tribes... Who are we ?Emma and Ompi, a young Franco-Colombian couple, owners of a small kitesurf school, Cabo Kite Center, in the village of Cabo de la Vela.For 2 years we have been living among the indigenous Wayùu tribe. We share the daily life of these people who are sadly forgotten by the Colombian government. Some humanitarian aid has emerged since the start of the COVID 19 quarantine but no project seems to focus on the donation of water which, for us, is absolutely essential! We initially decided to contact customers who have visited our kitesurf center in the past years in order to raise funds for the cause, then we thought of pushing the project further by creating this crowdfunding project to raise your awareness and call upon your generosity.Our project is straightforward !Raise funds to finance the distribution of water in the hamlets located around Cabo de la Vela.For those who are not familiar with the area, the village has no irrigation system.Water is supplied by tanker trucks which fill the basins where the water is stored, this is the only drinking water supply used also for washing and cooking...Some of the poorest get some water by walking long distances to reach natural pools which are also used to water their small goat farms.However an additional problem is that these pools are dry at this time of the year and the first rains do not fall until November. Still not convinced? We have teamed up with entrepreneurial friends from the region to offer you discounts on our catering services, hotels and of course courses and rentals in our kitesurfing center in return for your participation however small.Donate 20€ and receuve 15% discount in our centers.Just claim your discount by sending us a message! "Sounds good but where does my money go ?"There are 7 surrounding communities in total:Pujuru - Ishotshimana - Atutului - Kousochon - Palerü - Palamana - Aipir Each community has about 10 families with an average of two 500 litre tanks to stock water per family. The community of Ishotshimana is the biggest with approximately 30 families.A tanker truck can carry a load of 10,000 liters of water. We would therefore need a total of 9 tanker trucks to provide a week's supply of water.Each tanker truck is worth around € 100, which would correspond to a total of at least € 1.000. Hoping to be able to supply these communities at least twice, we have set our target at € 2.000.If our project is successful, a contribution of 4% will be paid to the Leetchi platform,i.e. € 2.080 to be collected in total.

Help two cyclists abducted and robbed in Zanzibar

Help two cyclists abducted and robbed in Zanzibar

Yesterday, right at the end of our two month bike packing trip in East Africa, the unthinkable happened- we were abducted in a car and robbed. It is the sort of thing you always fear in the back of your mind when you travel like we do. It is always a small possibility whenever and wherever you travel and you do your best to avoid taking risks, to be prepared. It is always a small possibility and yesterday we were the unlucky ones.We are Clare and Antoine, creators of travel website docgonewild.com and producers of travel film Pamir to Karakoram: cycling the world’s highest roads . We live for travelling. We travel mostly by bicycle, occasionally on foot, and we try to inspire others to travel and push their limits. We have travelled all over the world and count ourselves to be experience travellers. Perhaps we made an error in getting into the taxi, but when you travel like we do you must learn to trust the people you meet on your journey. We trusted our instincts and for the first time in many years we were wrong. We explain all the details of what actually happened to us over on the website, but essentially we were trapped in a car for severa hours and our captors took all our money, all our filming equipment, our camera with all our lenses and they took our cards with their pin codes to empty our bank accounts. They gave us back our passports, one telephone and -miraculously- we managed to negotiate the memory cards from all our equipment.We count ourselves extremely lucky just to have survived. We count ourselves lucky to have escaped serious injury. We are shocked and very shaken by what happened, but we are trying to remember all the many, many good experiences we have had whilst travelling which outweigh this one bad one. We are trying to remember why we travel and why we try to inspire others to do the same. In total we lost around $10,000 of cash, personal belongings and filming equipment. This represents years of investment, of scrimping and saving on our part. We lost years of Christmas presents, birthday presents and the camera lens we were given as a wedding gift last year. If you have enjoyed our website, our film or our social media content; if you are a fellow traveler who has lived through a similar situation or perhaps who counts their lucky stars to have never been in this situation then we ask to consider giving a small donation to help us replace what was stolen. We don’t have travel insurance for our belongings. Because of the length of trips that we do and the value of the equipment we just can’t afford to insure all our belongings. It would have cost almost what we lost over the years. If you are in a position to help us in this difficult moment, if you want to encourage us to continue in our travels and film-making or if you simply want to boost our faith in the goodness of humanity then we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We understand this year in particular has been difficult for everyone and you may not be in a position to give anything, if you are able to share it around you then this is super helpful too and if not then just a message to cheer us up will make all the difference too! ❣️

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!
