Jackie & Karma: Street Friends!

$10,150 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 251 people in 14 months

UPDATE: 1st NOV 2017.

Hi all, it's now bordering on a year and we've managed to raise a lot of awareness and funds. My initial goal was CAD$ 8 500 and we've managed to raise CAD$ 7 302. I'm now raising the goal to CAD$ 10 000 and will personally make up the difference - CAD$ 2 698.

I have not sent this money to Karama the boy or his pet as I wanted to be able to collect as much as I could as a lump sum amount - it is my belief that it would be more impactful than just sending small amounts in trickles.

My goal has been the bigger picture and a larger amount to secure as much of the long-term future for both Karma and Jackie his pet Dog.

I haven't had a chance to travel to Pakistan this past year and am aiming for between end of Nov to end of Dec 2017 to head to Karachi and personally set up a trust account for Karma the boy & Jackie the dog.

I fear in handing over CAD$ 10 000 to strangers and even family in Pakistan because of various reasons, chief among which are the lack of security, mafias (drug, land, trafficking etc.) and general environment of un-trustworthiness as this amount is equivalent to PKRs 820 000 and people get shot on the streets for PRKs 100.

I will not subtract any banking fees, transaction fees, exchange fees, admin costs and or flights etc. from this amount. The onus of that will be solely on me.

Thank you to all the funders, donors and contributors - I am now officially closing this campaign by the end of Nov and will travel accordingly with funds for Karma and Jackie.


Regards,

Suhaib.

EDIT: We've met the child & below are the details in the Youtube video. We misheard the dog's name - the dog is called Jackie and the boy's name is Karma (he's a Hindu boy from Karachi, Pakistan)

20th Dec 2016: Original Story.

Mohammad Belaal Imran
Karachi, Pakistan ·

Belaal Imraan is a Freelance Filmmaker & a Street Photographer from Karachi, Pakistan and this is the story of his interaction with a Street Dog wearing a sweater and a Street Kid wearing no shoes.

"I saw this dog last night at Bahadurabaad wearing a full sleeves shirt and while i was trying to capture him this boy came calling Jackie! Jackie! and the dog went crazy after him!

He started playing with him which was unbelievable as i never saw a stray dog playing like he was with this kid who feeds him everyday and he is the one who gave Jackie his shirt to wear because its cold."

Funds raised here will be used to give the Boy and the Dog proper clothing, food, shelter as well as medical care for both these best friends.

Any excess funds will be use to set up a Bank Account for this Street Kid so that he can be sent to school and will be put towards getting Jackie the Dog looked at thoroughly by a Vet.

Please pay-it-forward as this random boy with nothing has so much kindness to give and his actions teach a lesson to all.
