بادرة جميلة من مستشفى طيبة لأطفال تيماء أدخلت الفرحة في تلك القلوب الصغيرة.. بدأت الحملة عن طريق الانستقرام حيث أعلن حساب مستشفى طيبة عن تبرعه بدينار عن كل مرة يتم فيها إعادة نشر الصورة مع الهاشتاق #لأطفال_تيماء .. و خلال فترة وجيزة تجاوز الـ ٣٠٠٠ إعادة نشر في انستقرام وحده من دون تويتر!

سيستمر الاحتفال بأطفال تيماء في ثاني و ثالث أيام عيد الفطر، و هذا هو عنوان الاحتفال للمشاركة فيه: تيماء، شارع النجاشي، بجانب المسجد الشعبي. و للتطوع في التنظيم يرجى ارسال رسالة نصية الى الرقم التالي: 94010660 بالاسم الثلاثي و اليوم و الوقت المناسبين للمتطوع.

Donate to #Pumps4kids Campaign – @BSCorg

Quoted from BSC Kuwait page:

“The Pumps 4 Kids campaign is under the umbrella of the Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society in association with the Dasman Diabetes Institute to raise funds to provide insulin pumps for children with type 1 diabetes in Kuwait.

This form of therapy has numerous advantages relative to other forms of treatment; however due to it’s high cost only 10% of children in Kuwait have access to insulin pumps. Kuwait has the seventh highest incidence rates of type 1 diabetes in children under the age of 14, which highlights the importance of this cause. The funds raised by the Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society will be provided to the Dasman Diabetes Institute to purchase the insulin pumps. It will then provide the insulin pumps to children, and offer them both training and on-going support to adjust to this new form of therapy.

Insulin Pumps can go a long way towards protecting Diabetic children from the physical and emotional suffering caused by 1,460 insulin injections every year. Please donate to help us give Diabetic children back their childhood.”

Alhoula Massacre

Dozens of children, killed in a ruthless massacre in Alhoula – Syria by Al.Asad’s regime… It’s painful, hurtful, and annoying not being able to take action.. all I can do is pray for them, and I truly hope if someone could start something to help those poor people, and I’m sure many people will follow including myself. The video below is not recommended for WEAK HEARTS, I’m warning you..

[CAUSE] Help Save Abdulkareem and other children..

Abdulkareem - pic taken from 7ajidude.com

I have talked about this brave little boy on twitter 2 days ago after meeting him in NBK’s hospital. And now, our dear friend Danderma have sent us an email to highlight Abdulkareem’s story. To give you more details, Abdulkareem is not Kuwaiti, which makes it impossible to get free treatment here while he belongs to a very poor family.

Add to that, Abdulkareem has 9 other brothers and sisters, his father is diabetic, and his mother can’t even afford her transportation from and to hospital everyday. What could be worse? I’ll tell you what, standing out there doing NOTHING is the worst thing to do.. ever! Doctors will have to cut off his leg in order to stop cancer from spreading in his body, and this is supposed to happen next week, unless we do something and help him do his surgery and replace his knee, which by the ways costs 30,000 KD! Abdulkareem, as well as other cases, are waiting for cancer to spread allover their skinny bodies and eat them alive.. because they’re not Kuwaitis! They are human beings for God sake. If they’re not Kuwaitis, they will never forget that Kuwaiti’s and other nationals have helped them survive… in Kuwait.

As soon as tomorrow, I’ll be getting details, medical reports, donation details, contact details for these cases and will post them in here. Save Abdulkareem, save children, save your… sense of humanity!

عبدالكريم… طفل شجاع و ذكي، تكلمت عنه في تويتر منذ يومين بعد أن قابلته أثناء زيارة المدونين الى مستشفى بنك الكويت الوطني، كما وصلتني رسالة عنه قبل قليل من الزميلة المدونة دندرمة. عبدالكريم ليس كويتيا، مما يجعل أمر علاجه على نفقة الدولة أمر مستحيل في نفس الوقت الذي ينتمي فيه إلى عائلة فقيرة.

بالاضافة إلى ذلك، عبدالكريم لديه ٩ أخوة و أخوات، والده يعاني من مرض السكر، و والدته لا تستطيه تحمل تكاليف التنقل من المنزل الى المستشفى لمتابعة حالة ابنها كل يوم. هل من وضع أسوأ؟ الأسوأ هو آن نقف عاجزين مكتوفي الأيدي دون أن نمد يد المساعدة، و من المفترض بأن يقوم الاطباء بقطع رجله لمنع انتشار السرطان ما لم نسارع لانقاذه و توفير تكاليف عمليته و التي تصل الى ٣٠،٠٠٠ دينار!… عبدالكريم، و بعض الحالات الأخرى ينتظرون أن ينهش السرطان اللعين أجسادهم النحيلة… لأنهم ليسوا كويتيين! أليسوا بشرا؟ و إن لم يكونوا كويتيين، فهم لن ينسوا فضل اهل الكويت من كويتيين و غيرهم ان ساعدوهم… في الكويت!

في الغد، سنحصل على نسخ من التقارير الطبية لعبدالكريم و غيره من الاطفال و سننشرها مع كافة التفاصيل المطلوبة للتبرع بصورة قانونية. أنقذوا عبدالكريم، أنقذوا الاطفال… انقذوا الحس الانساني لديكم!

 

STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS ON HOW TO HELP, THANK YOU

تابعوني أنا و الأخوة المدونين للتفاصيل عن كيفية المساعدة، شكراً

[Cause] It’s time to give…

 

Thanks to our fellow blogger Rainy from Q8Rain, a great initiative of giving is now in the process to show the social responsibility role of blogging. We, as bloggers, have been covering social events and occasions, accepting invitations from here and there… etc. Now.. it’s time to give back to the community… and who’s worth giving more than children? 

Thank you Rainy for bringing our “good side” as bloggers to the surface :) Here’s Rainy’s post, worth reading.. and participating.

Discuss: Social puppets and the Blue Book

I was discussing this topic the other day with a friend.. and the issue keeps poppin’ up again with local companies tying bloggers with contracts and actually asking them not to post or tweet about any other competitor, even it was a personal opinion. Well, if this is how things are going then we should take an action to counter attack what Corp-heads are doing, am I right?

Dear Corp-Heads,

turning the blog-o-sphere into a “sponsored” puppet show won’t work.. and these are some basic rules that I wish if my fellow bloggers would follow to teach Corp-heads some manners:

  1. No more sponsorship contracts.
  2. You’re welcome -as a company- to “rent” an advertising space on my blog.
  3. You -as a company- have no right to tell me what to write and what not to write on my blog.
  4. You -as a company- can take out your Ad’s at anytime if you do not like what I post about.
  5. I, as a blogger, can write about and criticize the advertising company services and products.
  6. I, as a blogger, by the rules of the Kuwaiti constitution, have the full right to post about whatever I want, and to go whatever event.
Dear Fellow bloggers,
I would really appreciate it if you add your input to the above and spread the word to other bloggers. Call it a bloggers “blue book”! having some rules that we agree to won’t harm, but would help. let’s unite to keep our blog-o-sphere “clean”. 

Waiting for your input :)

I’m against the Internet CAP

Yes, we need to stand all together in the face of the unfair data caps, no matter what the companies or the MOC would say!! We’re now in a world where everything is being done online, our entire daily life is actually hooked to the Internet; business, entertainment, money transfers, daily tasks, and even the very basic communication requirements! What’s with Caps?! The companies claim that they are tied to limited usage offerings by the MOC in return to the huge amounts of money they pay. We totally understand that these companies are not charities.. yes we know that! but that does not give you the right to play around with the usage allowance!! taking the usage down, and raising the prices even more and more claiming they were “Limited time offers” ?? .. typical COW MILKING! A sick attempt to suck us dry!

Dear ISP’s, do you really care about your customers? If you really do, then why did you wait for this “E-Revolution” to rise against you and tear you into pieces!? Why didn’t you take the first step to fight against the retarded MOC regulations, if your claims were true in the first place? I’ll tell you why, because your customers were already paying and everything was fine! but now.. enough is enough! I totally support the The anti internet cap campaign (On twitter @Q8Capping – Blog) and my fellow bloggers campaign against the Caps. Here

Please, ISP’s, MOC, RESPECT US!

“Put yourself in her shoes” video

HRW says “Put yourself in her shoes”

A house maid being beaten to death… maid suicides in Kuwait… Brutality… abuse… How many times have you read about such incidents in Kuwait? If you ask me, I’d say “Almost everyday”.

Below is a press release from “Human Rights Watch” about a campaign being launched in Kuwait to reveal abuse and improve conditions for domestic workers. A must read…

Human Rights-Based Drive to Reveal Abuses and Improve Conditions for Domestic Workers
(Kuwait City, October 3, 2010) – Advocacy groups that have reported on violations of domestic workers’ rights in Kuwait today began an intensive advertising and outreach campaign to promote respect for the rights of these workers.  The Kuwait Human Rights Society; The Kuwait Society for Basic Evaluators of Human Rights; The Kuwait Center for Expatriates’ Rights; and the Kuwait Social Work Society  joined with Human Rights Watch, which documents human rights abuses worldwide,  to raise  awareness of  the abuses faced by domestic workers in Kuwait.
