Representing Lebanon at the World Robotics Olympia
Hello dear tech lovers and all kinds of supporters! 2 teams from Lebanon (six 16 year olds, three in each team -hey it rhymes!) were listed as finalists in the “World Robot Olympiad” and will be representing the country in 2 different categories. The first team: Robosports (Lebanon for the first time ever!) The second team: Future Innovators => Check their work https://instagram.com/metamed.lb?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= They competed against 85 countries and 30 different schools in Lebanon, and today they are finalists, competing against several other countries (They did it independently with only the support of the amazing NinjaCo. instructors) => Info Here: https://www.wro2022.org/theme The finals are taking place in Germany, City of Dortmund on the 16th of November 2022. Unfortunately, with the degrading economic situation in Lebanon, their families are incapable of financially supporting their trip. Those kids are the future of this country and the innovators that will make Lebanon a tech hub. This will open up for them many scholarship opportunities when graduating highschool and we believe they have a huge chance to win. NinjaCo’s mission is to implement modern computing education in Lebanon and the middle east, all while highlighting the importance of codifying as a constructive hobby that every child needs to adopt with our shifting digital world. And Now we are looking to raise 8000 euros to help all 6 students and a chaperon to travel and represent Lebanon in the finals. If we reach 1600 people each donating maybe only 5 euros, this dream can turn into reality. The deadline to register is on the 8th of october (yes in a couple of days) we want to risk it anyways and we found a way to cover the admission fees. But: Tickets (that are currently extremely expensive), transportation, special cases for their robots and inventions, as well as equipment to finalize their projects, visas and F&Bs are still not covered. On that note, if we don’t reach the 8000 euros but maybe reach only 2600 to support 1 youngster from each team to go and represent their teams (and Lebanon!) would be more than enough. My beautiful people, still residing in Lebanon (if you can) and working expats, if we reach 1600 people donating 5euros each, this dream can turn into reality. Pleaseee spread the word and love. We are looking forward to sharing with you the journey of these youth on NinjaCo’s official instagram page.

Heart Valves Replacement Surgery
Hello everyone. My name is Dina and this is my mother, Lina Mohsen Hammoud. She is only 56 years old and has been struggling with a heart condition since she was very young. She is very sick right now and we really need your help. From the 4 valves of her heart, only 1 is working, as the other 3 are malfunctioning, making it almost impossible to pump enough blood to the rest of the organs. She needs an urgent heart surgery (double valve (mitral and aortic) replacement) because if she doesn’t it can lead to a heart attack and have fatal consequences. My mom is full of life, she is vibrant and energetic and is giving it her all to keep on going, but her heart condition has been quite debilitating. We need our mom to have this life-changing opportunity so that we can keep on enjoying her beautiful resilient spirit. We come from a small town in Lebanon and, currently, our country is going through one of the worst economic crises in its history and this operation is very expensive and seems completely out of reach. We do not have enough resources nor do we have medical insurance to cover it, but we don’t give up. We have hope and we have faith and we believe in the power of community, this is why we have decided to organize this campaign through Fundahope and share her story. We all know how deep and unconditional a mother’s love is and all we want is to give her back in some way all the love she has given us as a family and everyone she crosses paths with. All of the money that we receive will go straight into my mom’s surgery and medical care and recovery. Please, donate whatever you can, because it all really makes a difference. And, if you can’t donate right now, please, share with those you love. Thank you from the bottom of our heart for helping us give our mom another chance at life. May God bless you all.
