Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I believe with all my heart in Edmunt Burke's quote that tells us, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that the good people do nothing."
My name is Alexandru Radu, 32 years old, former Non Commissioned Officer and I wanted to leave the comfort zone in 2019 to help the children's of Uganda, Africa by walking on Via Francigena - the ancient path of pilgrimage between Canterbury, UK and Rome, Italy with a distance of 1900km and a 2469 meter altitude difference that will be covered in about 3 months.
I try to go through this long trip to raise the necessary funds to put a smile on face of these children and to ease their lives as much as possible.
I have proposed to gather £10,000, money that will be spent on food, drinking water, clothing, toys, medicines and other needs to make life easier. I do not want to appeal to any foundations, I want to give my personal help over there, being helped by a good friend from Uganda.
The present situation of children in Uganda is very bad!
In Uganda, more than a third of all residents live below the poverty line and for this reason, the mortality rate of children under 5 is very high.
Viral maladies are very virulent and are rapidly transmitted due to lack of hygiene and unhealthy living conditions. Holera, for example, is one of the issues that seriously affect the health of Ugandan youth. The use of dirty water in many households leads to many children infected with this particular disease, which can be fatal. AIDS is as prevalent across the country, and malnutrition is very common.
I have listed just a few problems of course.
For this cause to materialize I need you! Any donation, as small as it may be, is welcome and can save a life.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
