Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am aiming to raise money, support and distribute medicine to low-economy areas
Cholera, typhoid fever and hepatitis A are caused by bacteria, and are among the most common diarrheal diseases. Other illnesses, such as dysentery, are caused by parasites that live in water.
All of the diseases listed above are hard to treat especially in poor and rural areas of India, Nepal, Africa, Turkey etc.
When I was in Nepal I saw an old man lying down-in fits of coughing. They told me that he has an undiagnosed asthma and is expected to die in less than a month, because their local doctor could not afford the correct treatment. This is mainly a political issue consisting of the Nepal governments lack of funding in healthcare. Many others suffer from issues such as this-the problem is not being unable to afford it but is where to get it
Over the next few years we will try many funding strategies to be able to supply the said cures, inhalers, fund doctors, donate to local hospitals. This process will include one of trustees or the founder (Me-Alisa Tohumcu) visiting these places and discussing what the issues are, the amount of money needed and more.
Finally we would be proud to ask you if you may support us through this journey of health, if you feel this kind action is not necessary we will understand but even if that may be the case please respond back and tell us so. I hope it is not too much to ask, just to make this detail clear we are not asking for money just for support.
