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.
Myself and a few friends are hoping by abseiling down the National lift tower (418ft) to raise funds for Beth Tite to continue her work with Motec Life delivering Orthopaedic care to communities in West Africa.
Motec Life-UK has a number of projects that are intended to help improve hospital and public health based care of underprivileged patients in the target hospitals and health care training institutions in sub-Saharan Africa especially Ghana. Motec runs educational and training programmes in addition to the direct health care activities in sub-Saharan Africa in order to help sustain health care improvements. Our organisation is co-operating with health authorities to ensure that as many health care workers and trainers within a reasonable distance from our main target hospitals join us in our educational drive at local, district, regional and national levels in Ghana and elsewhere in the sub-region. To sustain the programme, volunteers have to deliver the intended services at the target hospitals and health education institutions. This involves provision of air tickets, medical materials including equipment, public address system to run audio-visual educational programmes and paying for freight of donated and purchased medical materials.
To achieve our objectives, funding is an important issue to be addressed. Motec Life-UK currently runs on a budget that is supported by the public and the membership through fund raising activities, subscriptions, and sacrifices by its members who take their annual leave for the voluntary work, travel around to meetings and collect donated materials at their own expense. We enjoy some support from British Companies, and receive donations from members of the British and Ghanaian public and a consortium of patrons led by Prof Lord David Alton.
The sustainability of our projects is on the brink of failure and only the courage of the membership and the public has kept the organisation going. All the necessary steps for charity status have been taken. A responsible Trustee Executive runs the organisation and a supporting membership. Personnel experienced with accounting look after our organisation’s account. We are not only accountable to our membership, but also to the Charity Commission of England and Wa
