Weʼre raising £1,000 to send university textbooks that we have collected to the University of Mosul in Iraq
- Glasgow, 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.
We are a group of microbiology researchers at The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Our team is comprised of people from all over the world, including Mosul in Iraq.
One of our PhD students has recently graduated and has returned home to Mosul to help rebuild the university there, which was badly damaged during its liberation from ISIS. We have collected textbooks from around our university to donate to Mosul Library.
Books are heavy, and we need your help to raise the money for postage. Any funds that we raise beyond our target will be used to purchase new books that can be shipped directly to Mosul.
We believe that education brings people together, please help in any way that you can, thank you.

Thanks to everybody who has donated so far, we really appreciate your support! I have spoken with the University finance team here at Strathclyde to see if they will help us manage the fund. This has a number of advantages including transparency, but mainly the fact that Strathclyde has accounts with major publishers so we can get the best prices! Thanks again - really touched by the support so far! Nick
