THE STORY:

*(FRANCAIS ci-après)

Volunteer needs

In the USA there is a non-profit organization, Midwife Pilgrim (http://www.midwifepilgrim.org/), that sends midwives to respond to crisis situations and natural disasters.

I am a midwife and a nurse trained in Belgium and France, I love my work and I have time and skills to share with people who need it. This summer, I will be volunteering at a refugee camp in Europe (either France, Greece or Turkey) for one month. I will learn the location of my assignment in June.

As a volunteer, I will not be paid for my services, but I need funds for medical supplies, housing and transportation. 3000$ will cover my expenses. Any money that I do not use will be donated to Midwife Pilgrim to help support midwives volunteer.

All donations are fully tax deductible. Midwife Pilgrim is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, so donations are 100% tax deductible. (Please contact me at srozenwajn@gmail.com for information.)

Help me to help others!

About the situation: Since 2010 there has been an increase in the number of immigrants coming to Europe. In 2015 this number increased still more because of the conflicts in Syria and Afghanistan. Unsafe in their own countries, these refugees are coming to Europe to find peace and stability. They are men, women and children, human being just like us. Many have experienced terrible situations including torture, sexual violence, abuse and the deaths of family or friends. In Europe, many are crowded in camps resembling to shantytowns, where they are still exposed to violence, death, and diseases. They are at an especially high risk of human trafficking. The camps are often unsafe with poor-living conditions, and there is no medical care, not enough food or water. You can learn more about the situation in these news articles: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/most-of-the-refugees-stuck-in-greece-are-now-women-and-children/2016/02/29/729077a6-df04-11e5-8c00-8aa03741dced_story.html http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34131911 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-24583286 http://www.unicef.org/emergencies/index_85510.html http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/03/world/gallery/europes-refugee-crisis/ http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/home-office-deports-three-times-more-teenagers-to-war-torn-countries-than-previously-admitted-a6988191.html

 

Coucou,

Cet été j’ai choisi d’aller  faire du bénévolat  et passer un peu de temps auprès des réfugiés sur les camps européen  (Turquie, Grèce ou France). Je suis sage-femme et infirmière. Vivant aux Etats-Unis, je pars par l’intermédiaire d’une association américaine qui envoie des sages-femmes sur le terrain auprès d’ONG  lors de situations de crise (ou catastrophes naturelles). L’association s’appelle Midwife Pilgrim voici son site internet, http://www.midwifepilgrim.org/.

Cette association  s’assure de la validité de nos formations et certificats et fait le lien entre nous et les ONG sur place, elle nous aide à prévoir le matériel dont nous aurons besoin. Selon ses moyens elle nous assure aussi un montant minimum d’argent pour l’organisation mais ce n’est pas suffisant. Ma démarche est de trouver les fonds dont je vais avoir besoin pour le matériel médical, les transports et mon logement sur place.

L’argent issu des dons, me permettra de rester  un mois, j’ai besoin de 3000$ (environ 2600€). Partant en tant que bénévole, je ne percevrai aucun salaire, s’il me reste de l’argent en fin de projet, cet argent sera reversé à l’association pour permettre à une autre sage-femme de partir. De même si je n’obtiens pas assez, je ne pourrai pas rester aussi longtemps que prévu.

J’espère vraiment pouvoir partir et donner du temps à ceux qui en ont besoin, j’espère que vous pourrez participer au projet en faisant un don.

MERCI pour votre soutien.
