    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    This is a project that is currently set up in Punjab India.
    This is solely run by 1 elder gentle man who has nothing but a heart of gold.
    It's a place for the elderly, disabled and children/babies.
    It shocked me to see how people can dump babies just because a girl was born, they dump a family member because they are blind or disabled and finally because they simply grew old.
    My aim is to fund a social/support worker for a minimum of a year, someone who can support the elderly who are quietly suffering in silence and someone who can support children/babies settle in a unknown scary place.
    Mental health is not recognised in India it's simply ignored and people are dieing every second of every minute.
    This support/social worker could make all the difference that is needed and also train staff members to understand needs and mental health as a whole.
    It touched me so much when I visited this place in India for the simple reason of my own story...I almost killed myself here in England because of depression. If it wasn't for the support of my mental health worker I wouldn't be here. We don't appreciate the services available here in England until it's needed, it's a true eye opener to see the huge world that is suffering. We tend to take things for granted knowing it's available...but in Punjab it's a totally different story...it's a very lonely world which we can change if we pull together.
