Weʼre raising £9,000 to Create a Trust Fund for a woman with mental health difficulties and no family support.
- Bristol, UK
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.
I am a UK Buddhist monk who also supports a woman who has mental health difficulties, whose parents both live in other countries outside UK and cannot support her. She receives some help in the form of benefits but is otherwise destitute and needs financial support for such things as accommodation crises, furniture, clothing and other essentials, not to mention that it would be wonderful if she could have a holiday one day.
I have supported her for ten years. She has had a great deal of suffering in her life, including some mistreatment by others and many failings of the professional care services due to their lack of resources. The intention of the Trust Fund is that since she is not good at managing money all funds raised will be used entirely for supporting her in the most beneficial ways. This Fund is also guaranteed by my Buddhist vows which I have kept for over 20 years.
