Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help pay medical bills for my niece who's just been born at 29weeks and is in neonatal in the Philippines - costing just over £700 per day
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.
My brother is living in the Philippines whilst working for a British company. His Filipino girlfriend has had complications with her pregnancy and had to have a C section yesterday to deliver a baby girl at 29 weeks gestation. She is 700grams - around 1.5 pounds - in weight and will need to spend at least 3 months in hospital at a cost of just over £700 per day. We've currently got enough money to pay for about 2 weeks care and have put our mums small house up for sale (we inherited it) but can't guarantee a quick sale as it needs a lot of work carrying out so we're trying to raise extra funds in the meantime, we'd really appreciate your help, this is my brothers first baby and he's beside himself with worry - we all are.
