Your coffee money for Kyrgyzstan!
$5,836 of $5,000 goal
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.
Below are more articles about the crash:
I am informing you that my mother delivered the funds ($1,700 + 890 Kyrgyz Soms) to the last beneficiary, Zhakshylyk -- 7 years old boy who lost both parents and both sisters.Funds were delivered to his legal guardian and grandfather, Satybaldiev Sheraly ata. (signed documents are attached)
Zhakshylyk’s family were also given 2 options as to how they would like to receive the funds:
1. Funds would be transferred to the account open under Zhakshylyk’s name and he will be able to withdraw the money at the age of 16, or
2. Funds would be made available immediately. They chose the 2nd option.
This is it my friends, this is how easy helping is! I want to thank everybody who shared the campaign on social media, who helped me deliver the funds -- my beloved mother, who called me to offer help and of course YOU, donors! I have a short video of Zhakshylyk thanking you https://www.facebook.com/aynura.kalmurzayeva/posts/10155102104134124?notif_t=like¬if_id=1486402405174280 which worth a 1000000000 blessings!
(he wanted to do it himself). Today we have done a great thing together! Over and out!
After the withdrawal of funds ($5,766) Your Coffee Money for Kyrgyzstan campaign received $70 more. And since all the funds were transferred to Kyrgyzstan and distributed to 2 beneficiaries out of 3, sending another $70 to Kyrgyzstan again will make no sense since almost half of it will be lost as transfer fees! Today I donated $70 to another little but brave kid Sanka’s fundraiser on your behalf. He is just 1,5 years old but he is battling with cancer https://www.gofundme.com/savesan-ka-slife As of today we stopped accepting donations for Your Coffee Money for Kyrgyzstan campaign (I will still post updates on GoFundMe page) I hope all of you will understand this move. Love, respect and blessings! Aynura (Receipt of transaction is attached)
Update on Sultan's share of the donations
Today February 2, my mother delivered Sultans part of donations to his grandmother, Jumalieva Burulkan. She is his legal guardian after he lost both parents. The family were given a choice as to how they would like to receive the funds.
1. Funds would be transferred to the account open under Sultans name and he will be able to withdraw the money at the age of 16, or
2. Funds would be made available immediately.
They chose the 2nd option, since Sultan lost everything in the tragedy and requires basic amenities as well as grief counseling.
The amount of $1700+ 890 Kyrgyz Soms were delivered to his grandmother Burulkan Jumalieve. (Signed documents and pictures are attached)
PS: Zhakshylyk's part of donations will be delivered next week since they are out of town until next Tuesday.
Thank you very much, Aynura❤
As of Monday, January 30, we have begun distributing funds.
Your donations were split evenly between:
Zhakshilik (7 year old boy), who lost both parents and two sisters. Zhakshilik was taken to Osh city for a week by his grandparents, who will call us when they arrive so that we can deliver donations to them.
Sultan (7 year old boy), who lost both parents as well as his brother and sister. Sultan’s grandmother was attending a remembrance ceremony today, so money will be delivered to them at their earliest convenience.
Venera Sheyshenova (41 year old woman), who lost three children (19,5,2 years old). As Venera is in the hospital, my mother delivered donations to Venera Sheyshenova’s family today, which was received by her mother Sheyshenova Kenje. (signed document is attached)
