🧵This thread is about the beneficiaries receiving food packages from our food drive for #Kunar province. ⛔️People in #Afghanistan R in worst situation than what we hear. If you can’t donate, RT/share in networks, spread it. @ASEELApp @NasratKhalid
My team went to Tango Camp, a village where more than 400 families live. 50 families (15 widows & 35 ultra-poor families) were identified. The team will continue identifying more families for the food drive and will be added to this #Thread
#AfghanistanCrisis #Famine #Afghan
The team went door to door & inside the houses. This little brave girl explained their financial situation. Her father goes out every morning in hopes to find work. He returns empty hands. They have little food to survive. Plz help such families with food. 3/X #SaveAfghanistan

4126$ raised of target to feed 150 families in Kunar, a province seeking little attention. Help us reach this target by donating & sharing with your friends & family. #Afghanistan #Crypto4Afghanistan @rahilla @minasharif @Khybarai90 @ASEELApp @NasratKhalid…
Please RT, and tag anyone who may have the ability to donate. I can provide details through DM, email or WhatsApp. Also, details, reports, pictures and videos will be sent to the donors and posted on this account and on @ASEELApp. Each penny goes to helping these 150 families.
Once we hit the 7K mark, my team in Kunar & I will visit Sarkano, Shigal n Shultan districts to identify vulnerable families to famine and humanitarian crisis. I do have a list of 30 families from these three districts which includes widows & families without a male caretaker.

1) 5 packages distributed today through @ASEELApp (51 members in 5 families). We solely depend on your contributions, contribute more & we will reach to more families. I still require 9 food packages for 20 identified families needing food urgently. #SaveAfghanistan #Afghanistan ImageImageImageImage
2) Note: Tonight evening I went to a store to buy milk for my kid. I saw a little girl (prbbly 10 years old) asking the staff to give her sugar for ten Afs (0.10$). He give him very little. I asked the girl, why only sugar. She added “I gathered bread all the day, and with this Image
3) sugar, we will make tea, and have our dinner”. I asked her address, and she was afraid. I didn’t have enough money atm, but I did buy her green tea, sugar, and little beans. I couldn’t take her photo in the store as it could attract attention towards me. I couldn’t follow her

या आंतरराष्ट्रीय धावपटूसाठी काही करता येईल का मित्रांनो?

परभणीची आंतरराष्ट्रीय धावपटू ज्योती गवते यांची गोष्ट आपल्या सर्वांसमोर ठेवतोय.

खेळाच्या माध्यमातून देशाचे नाव उंचावणे हे कोणत्याही खेळाडूचे ध्येय असते. ज्योतीने देखील आपल्या खेळातून हा सन्मान देशाला मिळवून दिला.
त्यांनी अनेक राष्ट्रीय- आंतरराष्ट्रीय मॅरेथॉन स्पर्धा गाजवल्या आहेत.

42 स्पर्धांमध्ये मिळालेल्या बक्षीसाच्या रकमेतून त्यांनी दीड एकर जमीन खरेदी केली. याच शेतात राबून त्यांनी आपला सराव कायम ठेवला आहे. नुकत्याच ढाक्यात झालेल्या आंतरराष्ट्रीय मॅरेथॉन स्पर्धेत त्यांचा
दुसरा क्रमांक आला आहे. ज्योती आपल्या जीवाचे रान करत आहे. परंतु, त्यांना राज्याचा क्रीडा विभाग आणि अ‍ॅथलेटिक संघटना साथ देत नाहीत. त्यामुळे या गुणी खेळाडूचे मनोबल खचत चालले आहे.

सर्व निकषात बसत असताना अद्याप शासनाने ज्योतीला नोकरी दिलेली नाही.

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

This evening at 4:45pm we got a call from a social worker that works with seniors. She called us in a frenzy asking us for immediate help.

She told us of an emergency so extreme that her voice shook with concern over one of her clients.

#YYC #Calgary #CalgarySeniors #hope
This is what she said:

"Hello Jen, I was hoping I would be able to contact you before I left my work for the day in regards to a rather important situation that came across my desk this afternoon. I hope you have the time to chat?"

I said "Yes of course, how can we help?" #care
She said "We have a senior lady that is struggling so much that she has been going door to door asking for food from others in her complex."

I was quiet and honestly speechless.

I said "Of course we can and we will help. What is it that you need." #FEEDYYC #FoodHamper #helping

**Help IS Desperately NEEDED** **Emergency HELP**

This is very hard for us to write. But we feel we have no other choice due to us seeing the massive amount of requests that we are getting daily for both Humans and Pets.

Here is what has happened as of late:
This past weekend alone, we had over 30 emergency requests from individuals & families fleeing domestic violence. Many leaving with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

We were able to help about 17 of these individuals find shelter and lodging via referrals to other groups.
The other 13 individuals are being helped by our awesome volunteers. We are tracking down emergency funding and helping them apply for help through various organizations here in #Calgary.

We will be assisting them and their families in hopes of helping them feel safe once again.

Want to know what’s happening Twitter? Well let’s see:

We have one immigrant family that is facing eviction due to reasons beyond their control.
We have yet another family that is struggling so much both financially and with putting food on the table that they can’t even afford to buy sanitary pads for their children.
The last family on our list is a family of three that is requesting help with a food hamper because they are having trouble getting fresh and healthy food and diapers and wipes and formula for their young child.

Ok @Twitter You want to know “What’s Happening?” Well I’ll tell you!

We @HarvestHillsYYC woke up this morning to a bunch of emails and texts and voicemails from AISH clients who have:
A.) Not gotten their AISH payment.
B.) Got their AISH payment but it wasn’t the full amount.
C.) Didn’t get their AISH payment and have been frantically trying to call the support line to talk to anyone or get ahold of their worker...only to not get a call back.
We are working as fast as we can to sort everyone who had asked us for help into our respective categories, and if we have permission from anyone to share a story about their situation we will. But until then all we can say is this:

We have a new family just arrived to #YYC before #Covid_19 hit #Calgary that needs @HarvestHillsYYC and @Hell_Berta’S help. He is a father of four that needs help paying rent or he will face eviction Aug 1st.
His rent is $1300.00 with everything included. He has been laid off from his job only to be told that he is not able to return due to his place of employment going under.
I will match each and every donation. I’d like to raise enough money to pay his rent for two months. That should give him enough time to find gainful employment.
