If this is the first time you have visited my website, or the first time on this page, I am actively fundraising to adopt a little boy who has been living with me in the Philippines while I have been managing my privately funded humanitarian projects. He arrived into my life by accident in early 2015 and when his father died last August (2016), leaving him orphaned I immediately realised I needed to adopt him.

Crowdfunding to adopt Jerry

paypal-donate-buttonI spent 2.5 months in Australia (November 2016 to January 2017) working and raising money to adopt Jerry. Even though our crowdfunding campaign has ended I encourage you to visit the site to read more about our story. If you would like to make a donation please use the links below. Thank you for your love and support. Mel and Jerry xxx.

Thank you

There have been so many people who have helped me out in so many different ways since I first arrived in the Philippines. A big thanks to my family (especially my parents), friends and people I have never met who helped. Thanks also to the businesses who supported the projects. Finally a big thanks to my Uncle Richard A. Ward who spends his retirement tirelessly selling stamps and family curios to fund the projects here.
