    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    Papua New Guinea has been struck by a severe drought caused by the El Niño. Its effects are being particularly felt in the Western part of the country among those communities living in the most rural locations. Gardens have been unproductive from lack of rain and a surge in invasive pests have limited both crops and livestock. Food aid is not getting to the areas where people are desperate and dying. The people of Western Province have turned to us for help. Please do if you can.

      This relief effort has begun. The relief committee in Tabubil along with expat Sally Lloyd have distributed rice, flour, oil, seeds and mosquito nets to high risk areas; financed food supplies to the easterly remote villages, and funded an urgent survey into the Bosavi valley.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
