    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.


    Welcome to this fund

    My name is Paola and today I made the decision to use this platform as a way to raise the necessary funds that my brother, Juan Sebastian, needs in order to purchase a specialist hearing aid for the deaf.

    On October 06, 2016 his hearing aid, a cochlear implant NUCLEUS 5, priced at 15,871,000 COP Pesos (4,200 Pounds), got stolen from him, and we do not currently have the financial resources to purchase a new one. Since it is has played such a huge part in his personal and professional improvement, living without this for a period of time will delay and even reverse some of this progress

    Since having an implant, my brother has shown great signs of personal improvement in regard to his work, studies and just generally leading a normal life, even with the limitations and obstacles that his disability throws at him. It is due to these reasons, and the amazing progress we have seen in Juan, that we do not want to give up.

    Thank you for your help!


    Bienvenidos a este fondo

    Mi nombre es Paola Forero y hoy tomo la decision de acudir a este medio para recaudar los fondos necesarios que mi hermano Juan Sebastian necesita para la compra de un audifono especial para la sordera.

    Mi hermano es una muestra de superación personal ya que con la ayuda de su implante a ingresado a trabajar y a estudiar tratando de llevar una vida normal, aun con su limitación siempre pensando en tener una mejor opción de vida.

    Por ello no queremos darnos por vencidos y acudimos a este fondo, ya que el día 06 de Octubre de 2016 le hurtaron su audífono marca NUCLEUS 5 cuyo precio es 15,871,000 de pesos (4,200 libras), y actualmente no contamos con los recursos para volver a adquirirlo, ya que se trata de su superación personal y profesional donde se está viendo afectado psicológicamente y su proceso de evolución auditiva esta siendo retrasada. 

    Gracias por la ayuda!
