Help Uninsured Black Woman Get Lifesaving Surgery

Fundraising for Liv, who has an autoimmune condition and cannot currently eat or pay for surgery.

“After her feeding tube punctured her intestine and she had to undergo surgery, Liv’s heart stopped and she nearly died. The only option left for Liv to be able to survive anything is to undergo another surgery and be treated with medication. She needs this surgery to survive. Please donate and share this fundraiser widely - you are helping save a young woman’s life.” — Fundraiser organiser

Keep this young black family together

Fundraising to keep new parents Coby and Zubeyda together during the pandemic.

“Within weeks of Coby arriving the world has been torn apart by covid19. Coby and Zubeyda spent months in the NICU, working hard to get their baby Izumi home. Now that she's home this family are surviving on one income and Coby needs a visa renewal which is expensive. If he is unable to get one this family will be torn apart. Having a baby at any time is hard, but having a premature baby during a global pandemic is unfathomably hard. “ — Fundraiser organiser
