    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    This fund raising is for a little 3yr Ugandan boy called Alvin who is an orphan.
    He has been diagnosed with 3 conditions.
    * hydrocephalus (fluid on brain)
    * spinal bifida
    * deformation of legs
    He also has other health issues relating to the above.
    He lives in an orphanage that doesn't receive regular funding and is finding the expenditure of Alvins daily needs hard to meet as he wears nappys still and needs feeding obviously but his current diet consists of: 2 eggs per day/ 2 cups milk/ potatoes and rice as I'm sure you will agree this isn't enough for any child to live on. His daily cost works out at £3 per day.
    He currently receives no medical care and is in discomfort.
    Alvin can crawl but drags his legs along which is really hard to watch.
    I so desperately want to give this little boy a chance in life and will do the best I can to give him a comfortable life. Please if you can donate that would be greatly appreciated thankyou

      This is Alvin expressing how happy he was to recieve such a blessed donation of nappys from sweetypants uganda. Im now appealing for nappy sponsors, im in the process of ordering more nappys at the cost of £41.48 this is for a box containing 12 packs of nappys which should last around 3 mth for Alvin. If you like to help by a 1 off donation or regular sponsor towards the cost of his nappys that would be a great help. A big thankyou from myself and little Alvin

      Alvin has been doing well these past few weeks. He is how ever having problem with his bowels, at the moment we are unsure what is cause his carer is going to keep a food diary and make an appointment at hospital to see if long term he would be better with a stoma bag. I will keep you posted with the outcome of this as will need to do some fund raising to pay for the procedure if its deemed in his best interest
