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

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.

Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice

Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice

Vidéo YouTube synthétique décrivant le projet: https://youtu.be/WU3ln3Jpnmk ENGLISH BELOW Un Véhicule Adapté pour Tarcice Je m'appelle Tarcice, je suis née le 26 Avril 1977. Je travaille à mi-temps dans une entreprise privée et l'autre moitié du temps je le consacre dans mes activités sportives et au bénévolat. Marraine d'une association qui défend les femmes atteintes du cancer, j'aime passer mon temps pour des causes humaines car donner une part de votre personne aux autres est le plus grand bonheur pour moi et pour ces gens. J'ai également une petite particularité : je suis handicapée moteur depuis l'âge de 2 ans et je me déplace en fauteuil roulant manuel et électrique ; c'est le petit plus que la vie m'a offerte et j'en suis ravie. Mon handicap n'a jamais été un frein dans ma vie. C'est grâce à lui que je suis devenue déterminée, toujours ambitieuse et que j'ai appris à ne jamais baisser 1es bras.Cependant , tous mes déplacements me prennent deux fois plus de temps que pour une personne valide. En fauteuil roulant, chaque trajet devient un parcours du combattant: Je prends les transports quotidiennement pour aller travailler mais les imprévus compliquent énormément mes déplacements. Autrement je me déplace en fauteuil qu'il pleuve qu'il vente ou qu'il neige. Des imprévus quotidiens: -Attendre le bus suivant car la rampe d'accès du précédent est en panne. -Atteindre la station de métro suivante car les ascenseurs y sont régulièrement en panne. -Me faire oublier par le réseau de transport en commun des handicapés. Il m'est déjà arrivé de rater des journées de travail! Tout ceci est une pression quotidienne et c'est très épuisant. C'est pourquoi j'ai décidé de passer mon permis de conduire en 2017 pour faciliter mon quotidien. Seulement, à cause de ma maladie, je ne peux pas conduire un véhicule "normal". Si vous lisez ce message, je fais appel à vous. Il m'est impossible de payer toute seule un véhicule spécialisé. J'ai déjà réuni une somme de 18 500€ mais je dois toujours payer 25 000€ pour devenir libre et autonome. Avant de faire un prêt à la banque je cherche à diminuer cette somme. S'il vous plait, sachez que chaque don, quel qu'il soit, fera la différence et surtout qu'il m'encouragera dans mon combat.Alors n'hésitez pas à m'accompagner et explosons ensemble ce compteur !Vous en remerciant du fond du coeur.Tarcice ESSON An adapted vehicle for Tarcice My name is Tarcice, i'm born the 26th of April 1977, i work part-time in a private company and i spend the rest of my time doing sport and volunteering. I'm part of an association that defend women with cancer; i like spend my time for human cause because give a part of myself to others is the greatest happiness for me and for these people.I have also a little feature: i'm disabled moter since i'm 2 years old and i move with a wheelchair; that's the little plus that life gave me and i'm happy with it. However, all my moves in public transports take twice time than a valid person: buses and subways aren't always equipped for people in wheelchair like me.That's why i've decided to pass the driving licence but i can't drive a "normal" car. That's the reason why i created this page to raise funds in order to help me to buy an adapted car for my disability. I already raise 18 500€ (21 500$ US) but the car cost 43 500€ (50 700$ US) so i need 23 250€ (29 000$US) more to buy it. Each gift, whatever the gift, can do the difference! So don't hesitate to follow and help me!Thanking you from the bottom of my heart!Tarcice ESSON

Construction d'une maison de naissance à Guambía

Construction d'une maison de naissance à Guambía

[English & Spanish versions below]Bonjour à toutes et à tous,Mama Cristina est issue d’une longue lignée de sages-femmes du peuple misak, dans le coeur des Andes colombiennes. Depuis une quarantaine d’années, elle accompagne des grossesses et accouchements dans la réserve indienne de Guambía (Colombie).Dans cette région du Cauca, où les services de santé sont souvent géographiquement ou économiquement peu accessibles à l’ensemble de la population, le recours aux pratiques ancestrales de soins est fréquent. Les sages-femmes traditionnelles, appelées parteras, jouent un rôle prépondérant au sein de la communauté misak, où la majorité des femmes accouchent encore à domicile.Nous sollicitons votre soutien pour réaliser le rêve de Mama Cristina: créer une Maison de Naissance dans la réserve de Guambía. Cette maison sera dédiée aux suivis de grossesses et aux accouchements, mais constituera également un espace de dialogue pour les femmes, où seront organisés différents ateliers d’éducation sexuelle et de transmission des savoirs autour des plantes médicinales du territoire, entre autres. Nous souhaitons concevoir la maison en bio-construction et nous aurons presque exclusivement recours à des matériaux issus de la réserve (pins, bambous, paille, pierre, argile, tuiles et briques fabriqués à Guambía). Elle sera construite en suivant le modèle de l’architecture autochtone, à l’image du symbole de la spirale qui représente le cycle de vie misak. Budget estimé: 3.400€* Matériaux de construction et transport: 2.000€* Salaire maître d’oeuvre pour 2 mois: 650€* Installation eau et électricité : 300€* Matériel hospitalier: 250€* Nourriture bénévoles (pour les journées de travail collectif): 200€Pour celles et ceux qui le souhaitent, nous enverrons des nouvelles du processus de construction et des photos du résultat. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter pour plus d'informations.Un grand merci de la part de Mama Cristina et de la communauté misak, ainsi que des enfants á naître.--- Español ---Hola a todas y a todos,Mama Cristina es una partera tradicional del pueblo Misak, viviendo en las montañas del Cauca colombiano. Desde hace cuarenta años, acompaña los embarazos y los partos en el Resguardo de Guambía.En esta región del Cauca, donde los servicios de salud aun no son accesibles para toda la población, se han mantenido las prácticas ancestrales de cuidado. Las parteras juegan un papel fundamental en la comunidad Misak, y la mayoría de las mujeres todavía dan a luz en casa.Pedimos tu apoyo para hacer realidad el sueño de Mama Cristina: crear una Casa de Partería en el Resguardo de Guambía. Esta casa estará dedicada al seguimiento de embarazos y partos, pero también constituirá un espacio de diálogo para las mujeres, donde se organizarán diversos talleres de educación sexual y de transmisión de conocimientos en torno a las plantas medicinales del territorio, entre otros.La casa está diseñada en bioconstrucción y utilizaremos casi exclusivamente materiales de la reserva (pinos, guadua, paja, piedra, arcilla, tejas y ladrillos hechos en Guambía). Se construirá según el modelo de arquitectura nativa: el espacio en espiral representa el ciclo de vida misak.Estaremos enviando noticias del proceso de construcción, así como fotos del resultado. No dude en contactarnos si quiere más información.Muchas gracias, de parte de Mama Cristina y de toda la comunidad Misak. --- English ---Hello everyone,Mama Cristina is a traditional midwife from the Misak people, living in the heart of the Colombian Andes. For forty years, she has accompanied pregnancies and deliveries in the indian reserve of Guambía.In this region of Cauca, where health services are often geographically or economically inaccessible to the entire population, the use of ancestral care practices is frequent. Traditional midwives, called parteras, play a major role in the Misak community and the majority of women still give birth at home.We ask for your support to make Mama Cristina's dream come true: to create a Birth House in the Guambía Reserve. This house will be dedicated to pregnancies and childbirth, but will also become a space to promote dialogue between women, where various workshops about sex education and knowledge of the territory's medicinal plants will be organized, among others.We wish to create a house in bio-construction and will almost exclusively use materials from the reserve (pines, bamboo, straw, stone, clay, tiles and bricks made in Guambía). It will be built according to the model of native architecture and will symbolise the spiral that represents the life cycle of the Misak people. For those who wish, we will send news of the construction process, as well as photos of the result. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.Many thanks, from Mama Cristina, the Misak community, and from the unborn children.

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

Together for Selim!

Together for Selim!

Hi dear Selim's friends!As most of you already know, Selim had a serious accident while traveling in New Zealand. He will be staying at the hospital until his repatriation to France. The injury was to his spinal cord, so his actions are limited at this time. Due to the nature of his injury, he spends his days lying on his bed and trying to recover as much as he can.We really would like to bring him some joy and sun after this tragic event. So first of all we were hoping to gift him a Nintendo Switch and some cool games to help him have more entertaining days and a lighter mood to pull through this awful situation. Showing him our support will definitely help him to keep going. :)We know this will be a long journey and he will need all the support he can get while he adjusts to these changes. So rest assured that all the money raised will be used wisely to help him with this big new challenge. For now we are trying to move step by step and focus on his comfort and mental health.Your support is more than precious. Please send him as much as you desire: messages, videos, love, anything that could help him to get through this difficult time! Let's help him keeping smiling and fighting no matter what. :)Thank you so much for being here for him! Lots of love ❤️️(Of course we'll keep you updated!!) Salut les ami-e-s !Comme la plupart d'entre-vous le savent déjà, Selim a eu un grave accident en Nouvelle-Zélande l'obligeant à rester à l'hôpital pour plusieurs semaines avant son rapatriement en France. Sa colonne vertébrale a été durement touchée et il doit passer ses journées allongé à essayer de récupérer le plus possible.Pour tenter de les rendre un peu moins longues et pénibles, nous nous cotisons pour lui offrir une Nintendo Switch et quelques jeux sympas qui, on l'espère, rendront son quotidien plus divertissant. :)Cela reste une petite goutte d'eau pour l'instant et il aura définitivement besoin de votre aide plus tard mais chaque chose en son temps ! Notre priorité du moment est son confort et sa santé mentale. Bien sûr, tout l’argent récolté sera exclusivement utilisé à bon escient et pour l’aider, maintenant ou après son retour en France. Car nous savons que la transition sera un vrai challenge et qu’il aura besoin de toute l’aide nécessaire.Votre soutien est très précieux, aussi n'hésitez pas à lui écrire, lui envoyer des audios ou vidéos, de l’amour, tout ce qui pourra l'aider à garder le moral et lui montrer que nous sommes tous là, derrière lui ! Car si vous l'aidez à garder son sourire et sa force, il les gardera. :)Merci du fond du cœur d'être là pour lui ! Des bisous ❤️️(On vous tient au courant!!)

Hola a todos, soy Alejandra y esta es mi hermana Daniela. El 21 de Diciembre es su cumpleaños y otro año más que ella está inconcientemente en este mundo.Hace casi 3 años tuvo un ACV mientras se mudaba de Barcelona a Koh Phangan (Tailandia). Daniela era una persona muy saludable y extremadamente cuidadosa, pero el estrés del cambio le jugó una mala pasada. Siempre generosa y disponible a ayudar a quien lo necesitara. A día de hoy está sola en su mundo, sobreviviendo en estado vegetativo y aferrándose persistentemente a la vida. Soy su única cuidadora y no la pienso abandonar. Tengo que hacerle frente a todos los gastos para su cuidado y para subsistir, y así surge la idea de solicitar esta colecta para emprender un pequeño negocio que nos dé una entrada de dinero regular y continuar en paz en este trayecto que nos queda.Gracias de todo corazón por cualquier ayuda que puedan darnos. Mi hermana Daniela y yo se lo agradecemos eternamente.Información detallada sobre el estado vegetativo: https://msktc.org/tbi/factsheets/facts-about-vegetative-and-minimally-conscious-states-after-severe-brain-injury------OPCIONES DE DONACIÓN:Banco Santander Rio (Argentina)Para tranferencias o depósitos en Pesos.CBU 0720205888000033968386Bank of Ayudhya PCL Bophut Brach (Tailandia)Nombre: Ana Alejandra GonzálezSwift Code: AYUDTHBK Cuenta: 535-1-08768-1PAYPAL: ago46426 @ gmail . comWESTERN UNION Ana Alejandra González - Pasaporte AAA655725Hello everyone, I am Alejandra and this is my sister Daniela. December 21 is her birthday and another year that she is unconsciously in this world.Almost 3 years ago she had a stroke while she was moving from Barcelona to Koh Phangan (Thailand). Daniela was a very healthy and extremely caring person, but the stress of her change played a trick on her. She is always generous and available to help whoever needs it. To this day she is alone in her world, surviving in a vegetative state and persistently clinging to life. I am the only caregiver for her and I will not abandon her.I have to face all the expenses to take care of her and to survive, and thus the idea arises of requesting this collect to start a small business that will give us a regular income and continue in peace on this path that we have left.Thank you with all my heart for any help you can give us. My sister Daniela and I thank you forever.Detailed information about the vegetative state: https://msktc.org/tbi/factsheets/facts-about-vegetative-and-minimally-conscious-states-after-severe-brain-injury------DONATION OPTIONS:Banco Santander Rio (Argentina)Transfer or deposits in Pesos.CBU 0720205888000033968386Bank of Ayudhya PCL Bophut Brach (Thailand)Name: Ana Alejandra GonzálezSwift Code: AYUDTHBK Account #: 535-1-08768-1PAYPAL: ago46426 @ gmail . comWESTERN UNION Ana Alejandra González - Passport AAA655725 ¡Muchas gracias por vuestra atención!

In memoria di Giovanni | In Giovanni's memory

In memoria di Giovanni | In Giovanni's memory

IT (EN below)Giovanni era tante cose: un amico, un collega, un parente, un compagno di vita...ma soprattutto una persona con un'incrollabile fiducia nella vita, capace di portare uno sguardo positivo su tutto. Ogni interazione con lui aveva il potere di migliorare qualsiasi giornata.E' stato anche un combattente contro un brutto male che ha affrontato fino alla fine con dignità e coraggio. Giovanni ci lascia tutti piu' soli e impotenti.In sua memoria, vorremmo fare una donazione all'Istituto che si e' occupato di lui, per contribuire alla ricerca contro il suo brutto male, per continuare un pochino a lottare con lui.Alla fine della raccolta, faremo un bonifico alla fondazione IRCCS "Istituto Nazionale Tumori" (https://www.istitutotumori.mi.it/) e, in particolare, al dipartimento che si occupa del tipo di tumori (sarcoma) di cui Giovanni soffriva.Inoltre, faremo pervenire alla famiglia i vostri nomi. Se potete/volete, lasciate il vostro nome (il contributo puo' restare anonimo).Grazie.ENGiovanni was many things: a friend, a colleague, a relative, a life partner ... but above all a person with an unshakable trust in life, capable of bringing a positive outlook on everything. Each interaction with him had the power to improve any day.He was also a fighter, against an ugly evil which he faced until the end with dignity and courage. Giovanni leaves us all more alone and helpless.In his memory, we would like to make a donation to the Institute that took care of him, to contribute to the research against his bad disease, to continue, in our small and limited way, to accompanying him in his fight.At the end of the collection, we will make a transfer to the IRCCS foundation "National Cancer Institute" (https://www.istitutotumori.mi.it/) and, in particular, to the department that deals with the type of cancer (sarcoma) that Giovanni suffered from.In addition, we will forward your name to the family. If you can / want, leave your name (your contribution can remain anonymous).Thanks.

Bonjour à tous,Janne, notre maman, nous a quitté récemment en essayant de se battre contre une maladie, à ce jour incurable : la fibrose pulmonaire idiopathique.Infirmière de profession, elle s'investissait beaucoup dans des associations, en leur faisant profiter de son temps, son expérience et sa bienveillance.Le soutien que nous avons reçu de la part de ses proches a été un vrai réconfort et nous encourage à lui rendre un ultime hommage, en participant à un évènement sportif : un triathlon (Half Ironman de Vichy le 20 août 2022) afin de promouvoir l'APEFPI ( Association Pierre Enjalran Fibrose Pulmonaire idiopathique) qui accompagne les malades et leurs familles et qui fait avancer les recherches contre cette maladie.Nous souhaitons faire plus que simplement sensibiliser à cette maladie, nous souhaiterions récolter des fonds afin d'aider concrètement à la recherche médicale.A cette fin, nous lançons cet appel aux dons.
