To my fellow American friends,
A cargo jet crashed into a village near Kyrgyzstan's main airport on Monday, killing dozens of people on the ground. (http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/dozens-killed-boeing-747-crashes-village-n707236)
This "Your Coffee Money For Kyrgyzstan!" fundraiser's aim is to support the families, who lost their homes and family members as a result of the plane crush in Kyrgyzstan.
I am asking you to make your coffee at home for 2 days and use the money you would spend on coffee for those days to help those affected.
Coffee + Donut = $5
$1 = 70 Kyrgyz Soms
$5 = 350 soms (Which will buy a small family's average dinner.)
$200 - $250 = Average rent for one month in the capital, Bishkek.
I am not asking for much, even $1 makes a big difference in the lives of those who lost their homes and family in the disaster.
My mother and I will seek out the families affected by the crash after the initial chaos dissipates. We will make sure that "Your Coffee Money" goes to them without involving any bureaucracy.
Proof of transactions will be documented and shared.
Additional information and updates: My name is Aynura Kalmurzaeva, I am originally from Kyrgyzstan but currently living in Boston, MA.
My mother, Adenova Aiym is a retired military doctor and living in Bishkek. After the incident she was the one of the first responders on site. She has been trying to reach out the families and kids affected by the the plane crash for almost 3 days now. After the research we found out that this two kids listed below are the most in need and the money raised in this campaign will be shared even between.
- Zhakshylyk Sheraliev (7) - (lost both parents (27), both sisters (6) and (2))
- Sultan Azamat Uulu (7) - (lost both parents (32), brother (6), sister (4 months old)).
I will be withdrawing the funds personaly and it will be transferred to my mother to Kyrgyzstan using MoneyGram (transaction receipt will be provided). Then she will set up two bank accounts for these two listed up and local media will be invited to document the transactions. All the documentation will be shared with public over GoFundMe platform.
