Help for Albanian Children

Albanian Village School ChildrenIn 2015 and 2016, a group of locals from an Albanian village in Macedonia banded together to help hundreds of thousands of war refugees who were passing the border near their village.

These men worked for hours every night to help men, women, children, the ill, and the elderly.  They brought help to refugees of all faiths. They brought them food, warm, shelter, and whatever support they could. They carried their bags and babies, helped warm up frozen children, reunited families, and risked their own lives and safety to help strangers they had never met and may never meet again.

They often worked all night, slept for only a few hours, and then worked their regular jobs to support their own families.

They were sometimes seen about the transit camp, barefoot in the middle of the night, running here and there helping refugees, having just given away their shoes to someone they felt needed them more.

They called themselves “Team Studeničani ” – named after their village. To read more about their story, please visit https://www.huffingtonpost.com/megan-tucker/while-politicians-talk-pe_b_10530138.html

The village of Studeničani sits outside of Skopje, in Northern Macedonia. It’s people are primarily Albanian Muslims.

Now it’s years later, and the village of Studeničani needs help. The local school children have a lack of shoes. They sometimes have to walk three kilometers to school, through mud, rain, or snow, and without adequate protective footwear.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds to bring shoes to the children of Studeničani.

As funds allow, we will also provide books, school and educational supplies, and possibly jackets.  Funds allowing, we will also bring this help to nearby villages and schools as well.

As per our usual policies, we will purchase from local suppliers in Macedonia.

The number of students in the primary schools of Studeničani and it’s neighboring village is approximately 1700. Including students from a few smaller schools in the area, we have roughly 2000-2500 students to begin with.

The estimated cost of bringing a book and a pair of shoes to each child is $10.00 or less.

Ayuda para los niños de Venezuela


Niños en Venezuela están hambrientos e incluso muriendo de hambre. Han sido abandonados por sus padres por no tener dinero para alimentarlos, viviendo sin la ropa o zapatos apropiados, sin tratamientos médicos o dentales vitales, perdiendo su educación y terminando bajo el control de traficantes de personas y bandas criminales.

Imaginen un lugar donde las tiendas de comestibles están a menudo vacías, donde podrías tener que caminar 20 kilómetros en un calor abrasador para llegar a la estación de gasolina para combustible para tu vehículo; donde puede no haber agua o electricidad por una semana y donde los padres han empezado a abandonar a sus hijos pequeños en las calles por falta de dinero para alimentarlos.

Con la ayuda de nuestros donantes, hemos estado brindando ayuda a estos niños. Mientras más donaciones recibamos, más niños podemos ayudar.

¿Debe un niño de 10 años vivir en las calles con una herida de bala?

¿Deben los pies de un niño sangrar por la falta de zapatos?

¿Debe un niñito tener que comer de un contenedor de basura?

Aunque esto puede no estar en las noticias, esto ha empezado a convertirse en la realiadad de Venezuela. Las mayores víctimas son los niños.

Esta es una crisis oculta.

Los voluntarios de Charity United están en la tierra de Venezuela, llevando ayuda a estos niños. Además de encontrar niños perdidos y muertos de hambre en las calles para brindarles ayuda, hemos creado nuevos centros comunitarios.

Nuestros Centros Comunitarios

¡Los voluntarios de Charity United están manejando varios centros comunitarios en Venezuela!

Los niños pueden venir a los centros comunitarios y recibir comida, sopas, educación e incluso un lugar seguro para jugar. Los bomberos ofrecen su tiempo para actuar como guardias de seguridad. Madres y abuelas ofrecen su ayuda para preparar las comidas. Se dan sopas nutritivas y clases gratuitas.

Las madres son entrenadas para ser tutoras para que así puedan ganarse un mejor salario y proveer un mejor cuidado a los niños.

Parte de la ayuda que hemos estado proporcionando, dentro y fuera de nuetros centros comunitarios, incluye lo siguiente:

  • Comida nutritiva, como sopas con caldo de hueso real, pollo, vegetales y avena.
  • Ropa y zapatos.
  • Refugio (refugios a corto plazo en nuestros centros y refugios a largo plazo arreglados para niños que han estado viviendo en las calles).
  • Educación y clases gratuitas.
  • Cuidado médico, dental y ocular.
  • Terapia (terapia del lenguaje, terapia de aprendizaje y terapia de trauma).
  • Seguridad y protección, incluyendo áreas seguras donde los niños pueden estudiar y jugar, con voluntarios y bomberos funcionando como guardias de seguridad.

Cada donación recibida hace una tremenda diferencia en cuanto a la cantidad de niños que podemos ayudar, y cuanta ayuda podemos dar.

Las donaciones son deducibles de impuestos de los Estados Unidos hasta donde lo permita la ley.

Fotos del proyecto

Debajo podrá observar fotos tomadas por nuestros voluntarios en tierra firme. Con algunas excepciones, la mayoría de las fotos son tomadas luego de que han comenzado a recibir ayuda, y tienen un mejor estado mental que cuando los conocimos la primera vez. Es se debe a que cuando un niño esta hambriento y traumatizado, tomarle fotos puede ser una experiencia muy desagradable. Esperamos a que los niños se sientan mejor antes de sacar la cámara.

Venezuela’s Children


Children in Venezuela have been going hungry, or even starving. They have been being abandoned by their parents for lack of money to feed them, living without proper clothing or protective footwear, going without vital medical or dental treatments, missing their educations, and coming under the control of human traffickers and criminal gangs.

Imagine a place where grocery stores often are empty, where you might walk 20 kilometers in scorching heat to reach a gas station for fuel for your car, where water or electricity can be off for a week at a time, and where parents have begun to abandon young children on the streets for lack of money to feed them.

With the help of our donors, we have been bringing aid to these children. The more donations we receive, the more children we can help.

Should a 10-year-old live on the streets with a gunshot wound?

Should a young boy’s feet bleed for lack of shoes?

Should a toddler have to eat out of a garbage can?

While it may not be all over the news, this has begun to become the reality of the country of Venezuela. The biggest casualties are the children.

This is a hidden crisis.

Charity United volunteers are on the ground in Venezuela, bringing help to these children.  In addition to finding lost and starving children on the streets to bring them aid, we have now created new community centers.

Our Community Centers

Charity United volunteers are now running several community centers in Venezuela!

Children can come to a community center to receive food, soup, education, and even a safe place to play.  Firefighters volunteer their time to act as security guards.  Mothers and grandmothers volunteer to help prepare food. Nutritious soup is given, and free classes are held.

Mothers are trained to become tutors so that they can earn better wages and provide better care for their children.

Some of the aid we have been providing, both inside and outside our community centers, includes the following:

  • Nourishing food, such as soup with real bone broth, chicken, vegetables, and oatmeal
  • Clothing and shoes
  • Shelter (short-term shelter in our centers, and long-term shelter arranged for children who had been living on the streets)
  • Education and free classes
  • Medical, dental, and eye care
  • Therapy (speech therapy, learning therapy, and trauma therapy)
  • Safety and security, including safe areas where children can study and play, with volunteers and firemen functioning as security guards

Every donation received makes a tremendous difference in how many children we are able to help, and how much help we can give.

Donations are US tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
