    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.


    Sri Lanka is notorious for it’s luxurious beaches and handsome weather however it should be noted that behind the luxury lies a taboo subject.

    Mental health on a whole, is largely ignored and unspoken about; consequently, thousands of citizens are left with little to no help which can often lead to suicide. Furthermore SLV Global are a volunteering organization that provide a service to those suffering with mental health issues. As a Psychology student, I am largely interested in learning about different cultures and how mental health is dealt with within those cultures. Unfortunately, to volunteer, expenses are not free which means that I am limited.

    In addition, expenses are £1,300 which includes accommodation and a support network. These expenses mean I could have four weeks, hands on experience with those who are dealing with mental health issues. With SLV Global I am able to get the experience that I need, to potentially help those suffering with mental health issues. All your help would be highly appreciated and every donation will help me to care for those in need. Let’s put a stop to mental health being a hidden, taboo subject.

    Kind Regards,

    Michael Hodgson

        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!
