Jamal from Huddersfield. Bullied at school
£157,665 of £150,000 goal
A video has been circulating the internet of a child being bullied at his school. He already has a broken arm as you can see in the video and he was thrown to the ground, choked and water boarded.
The victim Jamal is a refugee in the UK who has been subject to months of bullying along with his little sister. To the point where his little sister has broken the lenses in her glasses and attempted to cut her own wrists in school toilets.
Jamal's family are refugees in the UK and they struggle to meet the basic necessities of life. We want to raise money for the family to ease their situation and hopefully they can use the funds to help improve their quality of life and to put a smile on their faces. Having left a war torn country, the least they deserve is to live in peace without being harassed. Please donate generously and let’s change this horrible situation into a blessing in disguise for them.
I've been asked by Go Fund Me to provide some more info on this to ensure that all the funds go to the right people:
My friend does regular charity work in Huddersfield which involves giving food donations to refugee families. He is in contact with them and has made them aware of this Go Fund Me page. My friend is also keeping me updated on any responses from them.
-I plan to add Jamal's relevant guardians as the beneficiaries of the total funds. I am working with Kelsey from Go Fund Me (we are in contact via email) to ensure that the money gets to them.
-Throughout the campaign I have increased the target of the funds and I will continue to do so as I feel it is important that we raise as much money as possible for the family.
The video was heart breaking to watch and I just wanted to help them out in any way I could. I had the idea to set up this page and through immense support from social media it has all gone really well.
A big thank you to everyone who has donated so far, please follow my Twitter @mtahir_17 for any updates on this.
The families lawyers have been in contact with Go Fund Me and they have established a plan with them as to how the funds will reach the family. The families lawyers have been added as the beneficiaries and they will access to the funds directly.
Again, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the campaign, you were all very generous and you all came together when it mattered most.
Also a special mention for Kelsey and John at Go Fund Me who were incredibly helpful throughout and kept me updated with each step of the progress. A real credit to Go Fund Me and the utmost professional people.
As you can see, the donations have slowed down and I feel we are in a position where we can close the campaign. The donations have now been turned off and I personally would like to thank everyone who supported the cause. Personally, it was an honour to have been the organiser of such a successful campaign. This wouldn't have been possible without all the donors and I will never have enough words to express how much this has meant for me and how grateful I am.
Thank you all!
The support has been unreal, and I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated/shared the page, couldn’t have done it without you.
