£780raised of £1,500 target by 25 supporters

    Weʼve raised £780 to help a little boy on the other side of the world who needs your help. Three year old Melwyn has a serious heart condition and needs help!

    Funded on Monday, 22nd October 2018

    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.


    Can you help a little boy on the other side of the world who needs your help. Melwyn has a serious heart condition and requires help paying medical bills. Melwyn lives in Leyte in the Philippines where access to medical help is expensive for him, as he lives in one of the poorest regions of the world.

    You do not know him, and he does not know you, but with one selfless act, you can help change his future and the happiness of his family around him.

    Melwyn is in a very desperate situation indeed, he was born premature at eight months and developed pneumonia shortly after. At just two weeks old he lost his voice and was unable to vocalize again until he was more than six months old. Melwyn is now three years old and he has congenial heart disease. (Ventricular septal defect - Perimembranous with VSA and Aortic regurgitation.) In lay terms - he needs heart surgery urgently.

    We have set up this page on behalf of Melanie Dapon (Melwyn’s mum,) who we have known personally for five years. Please dig into your pockets and give what you can, something is better than nothing. Please be assured that EVERY penny will go on his medical bills. If the page makes more than the required amount it will help towards the travel expenses and other logistics around helping Melwyn.

    Thanks in advance - Lee and Gemma Escott

      Quick update for those who helped raise funds and donated towards an emergency heart operation for Melanie’s son Melwyn. He had his operation yesterday and it was a complete success, he will spend the next few days recovering. Thank you to all who donated, you just helped change the lives of a family who really needed your help. All of your donations just saved the life of a little boy, that you don’t even know, who you will probably never meet, and who lives on the other side of the world! Thank you and God bless xxx 😊😘

    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!
