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.

I arrived in the UK from Pakistan a few years ago with my then husband to do my PhD as an international student. I left my husband because of 7 years I'd been both physically and emotionall abused. I have been completely ostracised by my ex-husband and my community, both in Newcastle and backhome, because of his influence. As a result, I have been left with no funds to survive on at all. I have a 19-month-old baby who is in Pakistan at the moment with my mother because I cannot afford to keep him here. My ex-husband has been making threatning calls and sending e-mails, threatning to abduct my baby, and my biggest fear is that he will take him before I get the chance to bring him back here.
It is my wish and hope to be able to sustain myself and my son here and I am looking for work here. I am a qualified qualitative postgraduate researcher and a student here in the UK. I am therefore, not eligible for any UK's Government support because of my student status, so I desparately need to raise sufficient funds to be able to survive until I can find work, and earn enough to bring my 19-month-old baby back to the UK where he will be safe.
I need to raise £6540 for my immediate survival. I would require these funds to survive here in the UK until I find a reasonable job and am able to take care of my basic expenses. The money will cover six months' rental accomodation, bills, groceries and transport. I aim to find a reasonable job witin this six-month time period so that I can bring my child to live with me here and am able to sustain both of us with social, emotional and moral support from our community. However, my current situation is quite urgent as I will be homeless by the end of this month and have completely run out of resources.
Hello Everyone. I would be very grateful if you could please make a contribution towards my campaign or share with as many people as possible as I am limited in social media contacts. No amount is too small. Many thanks and much gratitude.
