The Sadaf’s family lives at their uncle’s house in the Dehdana district of Kabul. Sadaf’s father died of burns in a gas explosion. Sadaf is 15 years old and is in the ninth grade of school. Her only brother is 14 years old and he is studying in the eighth grade. His sister Samira is 13 years old and in the fifth grade. His younger sister Zahra is eight years old and is in the second grade. Their house has two rooms, but only is safe, so they all squeeze in together in the remaining space. They have no regular income and use whatever their uncle brings their family for food and other crucial needs. His brother Samir had to leave school due to the lack of a breadwinner at home, but fortunately, thanks to your help, he and his sisters are studying now.
Sajjad lost his father five years ago during an armed attack at the 400-bed hospital. He has two younger brothers. The only supporter of his family is their mother, who is not able to work. They are living in a small and unlivable home which is intolerable to live in the cold weather. His martyred father’s retirement money is the only source of their income to continue their difficult life that is not enough for their living cost and education. Sajjad is in the eighth grade of the school supported by HBT. He passionately wants to go to school and continue his education. Please donate whatever you can to support Sajjad’s education.
Hi; my name is Shekiba. With your donations to HBT, I have been able to attend school for four years. I currently hold second place in my sixth grade class in school. I dream of wearing a stethoscope someday. The future doctor, God willing me, thanks you for all of your love and support.
Shekiba was born in a poverty-stricken family. She has three brothers and two sisters. Her dad worked in the streets as a labor worker to provide for his family. Shekiba’s dad broke his leg on the job, which led to a permanent disability. As a result, Shekiba and his family lost their breadwinner.
Fortunately, HBT (Help Build Tomorrow) got the family information through its volunteers and after a full assessment of the family, with your help and donations, begun to provide for her education and other expenses pertaining to his family so she does not have to end up working in the street. With the support of our donors and volunteers, Shekiba, her brothers and sisters were enrolled at Esar Private School.
Shekiba wishes to have a bright future and want you to help support HBT to help kids in Afghanistan.
Meet our newest addition. Wallilullah is sixteen years old and the oldest of four siblings. Walliullah was forced into child labor and has not been able to receive an education because of it. And, as a result, he tests at a third-grade level when his age predicts him to be a sixth grader, by now. When HBT learned of his situation, HBT stepped in, sponsored him and registered him at a school in his village. Walliullah has a long way to go before he is caught up but with HBT’s assistance his spirits renewed and eyes on the goal of education. Help us keep him going! We love his enthusiasm and promise you will too.
This is Sadia a fourteen year old registered in school with the help of HBT. Sadia missed three years of schooling due to not having proper clothing. This absence caused her to fall behind and when tested at enrollment, she scored only at the third-grade level. While not in school she stayed home performing house chores with her mother as her brothers went to work odd jobs with their father. HBT has also sponsored her three siblings’ education at Hera School in Paghman province.
When I first volunteered with StreetVet in 2020, I was involved in the StreetVet Accredited Hostel Scheme’s early stages. This opportunity introduced me to a brilliant team of people and brought exciting new challenges my way.
After Covid-19 caused a re-evaluation of my life plans, I sought out the opportunity to make a difference to others’, and to learn while doing so. I joined the StreetVet team in March 2021, and exciting new challenges became my breakfast, lunch and dinner.
With a background in audio production, and my passion for wildlife photography and club sandwiches, I naturally progressed to this role with StreetVet, and I couldn’t be happier. Life doesn’t seem to follow a strict path, but I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and I’m thrilled to be a part of the charity’s current work and future development.
I joined StreetVet as General Manager in February 2020, with overall responsibility for delivering StreetVet’s mission and developing a sustainable fundraising strategy. I’ve also been volunteering for StreetVet at my local outreach in Cornwall for the past 18 months.
Prior to this, I qualified as an RVN back in 1999 and worked in general practice for a few years before deciding to experience other industries. I then worked my way up to senior international operational positions at several leading cyber security companies. These roles took me all over the globe.
I’m a keen environmentalist, I can often be found litter picking or beach cleaning. I obsess over the health of the hedgehogs in my garden and feed the garden birds a better diet than I give myself. However, dogs are my greatest love and I will always have one by my side.
I joined StreetVet in November 2019 as the organisations first official employee. Animal welfare is one of my biggest passions and I have worked in the animal charity world for about 10 years.
Prior to this I worked in the music industry.
I feel very lucky working for a charity whose ethos I have admired since first meeting Jade in 2017, I feel a piece of a puzzle that makes up a great team.
The only downside is having to turn my first and middle name into double barrel to avoid ‘Jade’ confusion.
Like many other vets, when I see a homeless person and their dog on the street I feel like I want to do something to try and help them. So, one evening in 2015, when I was still a student at Bristol vets school, I decided to go out with my stethoscope and check over any homeless people’s dogs that I came across. What stuck with me after meeting a few people that night was how happy and relieved they were when I told them that their dogs had a healthy sounding heart.
After graduating and moving back to London I decided to try and create a more sustainable and structured way to provide a veterinary service to these dogs. Together with Charlie and another colleague we visited many homeless people in North London with worming tablets and a bag of veterinary supplies. Soon after going out a few times in London, I met Jade in April 2017. Jade had been doing the same thing in Westminster, coincidently operating under the same name. That was when StreetVet was born! Since then we have been working together, assisted along the way by our amazing team of volunteers, to try to marry the passion and willingness of veterinary practitioners with the need for veterinary care for homeless people’s dogs.
With teamwork and collaboration, I think that it is entirely feasible to check over and treat every homeless person’s dog in the country and, in doing so, make a small difference to the lives of some of the country’s most vulnerable people.
My name is Jade Statt and I qualified as a vet from Glasgow Vet School in 2002. I have worked in small animal practice since graduating but have always wanted to volunteer as a vet in the UK. The concept of StreetVet for me was born from meeting a homeless man and his dog on a night out in London in 2016 and talking to him about his unconditional love for his dog and his fears of losing her. Having recently lost my own dog Oakley, his worries resonated with me and I felt frustrated that I couldn’t use my veterinary skills to help them but overwhelmingly I kept thinking “how would I feel if this was Oakley”. It was no coincidence that StreetVet began for me in October 2016 and I lost Oakley in September the same year. StreetVet helped me keep focused through my grief but more vividly for me was I identified with the unyielding bond between owner and their dog. The human animal bond is extraordinary and it’s a privilege to experience. Another catalyst that helped me to start on the challenging journey of setting up StreetVet was meeting Josh Coombes ( #DoSomethingForNothing). He is an inspirational person and now a firm friend and a constant supporter of StreetVet.
With a backpack of medications, a stethoscope and a nurse, I started ” Streetvetting” in October 2016. What started as a pilot scheme was before long featured on ITV news, BBC trending, Vet press and multiple pet magazines. It was clear there was a real need for this service. My long term aim was to get other vets involved and create a network of StreetVets UK wide – I then met like minded vet Sam Joseph and we officially founded StreetVet together earlier this year. Creating a rapport with the homeless and gaining their trust does not happen overnight but , with your help and the backing of the profession and our aim to help the homeless and their best friends , I believe this project will be a success.
