Weʼre raising £1,000 to help a destitute family rebuild their home.
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.
Last May, I have lived moments that will remain forever etched in my memory. I participated with a team of volunteers in our 6th humanitarian mission in the hilly remote countryside of Middle Atlas, Morocco (check out our projects here: https://www.facebook.com/lesenfantsdemeryem1/)
One family's story particularly affected me.
They are 5 of them, Naziha and Ihsane suffering from mental illness since the shock of the sudden death of their dad. Farid and Bouchra, fatherless orphans, respectively 10 and 17 who have recently quit school. The widow mum, Rachida, struggling to feed her kids who runs her family with love and courage.
All of them live in one single decayed room, face hard-living conditions, and cannot afford to build up another room.
I am pulling together to raise help me get them a new home by winter time. I am raising the funds now and will get the work started by local builders this August!
P.S: I promise that'll be my fastest 10k! #runforgood
