Help Eradicate Jiggers and Restore Dignity to Victims’ Lives

Save The Mothers Trust is committed to eradicating the Jigger menace in Congo. The infection can lead to severe inflammation, ulceration and fibrosis. It can also cause lymphangitis, gangrene, sepsis, and the loss of toenails, amputation of the digits, and death may also occur.
Our team is leaving to help children and the elderly who are affected by Jigger fleas that are causing fatal diseases and long term issues to feet, arms and hands. Those suffering from extreme poverty are affected by the jigger. They lay eggs that creates up to pea-size egg sacks and continues to multiply by laying more eggs.
hese wounds are painful, and cause difficulties for victims in daily activities such as walking, playing, and attending school. While jiggers can be extremely fatal, secondary infections (gangrene, tetanus and other diseases) caused by jiggers.
The project is going to be handled personally by my self  Qumar Afsar, making sure every penny is spent in the correct place.
My goals are:
  1. Provide a complete Free treatment to every single person by removal of the jigger insect & recovery treatment:
  2. Hire staff members who will deal with remove jiggers from the people who are infected.
  3. Provide the correct tools
  4. marketing of the free treatment available to the poor.
  5. Provide slippers that will protect the children and the elderly from this insect.
  6. Raise awareness on how to defend against these insects
  7. My target to start this project is £5,000
The tickets have been booked and we are aiming to execute our work by the 22nd August 2017.
Your help is urgently needed. Thank you, Qamar

gift aid it - make donations go further

With Gift Aid, your donation of £10.00 would be worth £12.50 at no extra cost to you.

For every £1 you donate you can add an extra 25% at no extra cost to yourself through Gift Aid. By selecting ‘Gift Aid’ you confirm that you are a UK Tax Payer, and are eligible to boost your donation by 25%. Like every charity, we have basic operating costs which are an important part of ensuring your donations have maximum impact and reach those in need. We recover these costs through Gift Aid.

Gift Aid Guidance

In order for Save the Mothers trust to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donations, you must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) equal to the tax that will be claimed by all the charities that you donate to (currently 25p for every £1 you give) in the same tax year.

The tax reclaimed will be used to help fund the administration costs of the charity so more of your actual donation can go directly to those in need.

Gift Aid can be added to your donation if you are donating your own money. We regret that Gift Aid cannot be reclaimed if you are paying donations you collected from others, even if everyone was a UK taxpayer. Neither can it be reclaimed on donations made by companies. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. Gift Aid can not be claimed on payments for any ticketed events.

Please notify us if you are no longer eligible, wish to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address or if you no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and / or capital gains.

By ticking the gift aid it box you agree that you are eligible to claim Gift Aid as explained above and that we can treat this donation, any donations made in the last 4 years and future donations as Gift Aid and that you understand that if you pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
