Weʼre raising £1,000 to help a young person in Ghana buy a bed to sleep on. A room to live in and mosquito nets to stop them biting him at night.
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 started speaking to semedor about four years ago. he lives in a small area in accra the capital city of Ghana.
He has nothing! When we first started to communicate I thought he wanted money. but never once did he ask me for anything.So i decided to go out to Ghana to see him. I took with me a few little gifts. A shirt, sandals, Little things.But you would have thought I had given him the world. As you can see he lives in a shack, Has no electricity so no lights no fridge to keep food safe, No fan to cool him when the temperatures in his home rise to over 45 degrees most days. And in the evenings he gets attacked by mosquitoes.I took over with me a net but they soon disintegrate when they are washed often,especially when they have to be washed in buckets with water from the streams that has to be collected most days from 5 or 6 miles away
