Help Azine keep breathing & helping others

Azine is an advocate for clean air with Air Quality Owl, a travel and relocation researcher, grown unschooler, and much more.

She has severe, debilitating, and often unbearable chronic illness, including Lyme disease, that affects her nervous system, immune system, and breathing. Her symptoms are much worse with polluted air, and much better with very pure air.

In early May, 2019, Azine made the difficult journey to an area with cleaner air near the Mediterranean coast, with help from a friend traveling with her and online coordination and outreach by friends and allies.  Previously, she was suffering terribly with the air pollution in the southern Netherlands, where dismissal of her illness as psychological led to a terrible series of problems.

She has spent the past weeks in a weekly rented apartment by the sea, and the cleaner air has helped a lot.  She lives alone there for now, doing her own cooking and other tasks, with shopping and some other help from a local friend.

Even with medication, doing these tasks herself often causes substantial nerve pain, breathlessness, and muscle spasms, sometimes so much that she can’t eat after cooking.  

Azine continuing to have to do so much by herself, beyond her limits, will have the short and long term effect of exacerbating her physical conditions and truly endangering her life.

It will make a big difference for another person to join her there and help, for a short or longer period of time. 

Azine also has to find a new place to stay soon, as the current apartment is only available for one more week, due to tourist season beginning.  Increased car traffic is also worsening the air quality there.

We are searching for a monthly rented apartment or house in a smaller village or something more in nature, but we need to raise money to pay for this, as well as taxi costs for the search.

Meanwhile, we are struggling each day to raise basic expenses.  The people who have been helping cannot keep helping at the same rate and having both a burst of giving now and ongoing donations is critical to things turning out ok.

Azine’s network of friends and allies are coordinating remotely, but each day we are struggling to find money and coordinate what’s needed.  We need help.

Azine’s mom, her only available family member, is still in the Netherlands as the the main caregiver for her own very ill and elderly parents.  She is also dealing with shocking and unjust problems with a social service agency and the municipality that arose from Azine’s illness not being taken seriously.

Others who would like to come to help cannot currently, due to lack of money, jobs, and/or severe illness.

We are currently fundraising on Paypal for current expenses and seeking people who can help over time.
