Part proceeds from our Circles outdoor cushion goes to fund research into Allergy and Immune Disease in Australia and New Zealand.
Loan with us
Do you believe in lending a helping hand and not just giving a hand out? Hey, me too!
That's why I have established a Kiva Lending Team with the aim of supporting creative entrepreneurs living in poverty. I believe this form of financial support helps build self esteem, confidence and hope.
Kiva is a not-for-profit, micro-finance platform where everyday people, like you and I, can make a loan to someone striving to make a better life for themselves and their family.
Members of a Lending Team lend as individuals, but have the option to count each loan towards the overall impact of any Team.
If you are currently a Kiva member, or really would like to be, click the info buttons to the left, find out more and join Moteef now so we can make a difference together.
Our Cushion for a Cure initiative
Allergy and other immune diseases are amongst the fastest growing chronic and complex health conditions affecting children and adults in Australasia.
My young daughter, Lauren, suffers anaphylaxis to some tree nuts. This diagnosis has brought to our family's attention that research into new treatments and cures for allergy and other immune diseases, as well as community education and improved access to care, is urgently needed.
FACT: 1 in 10 babies born today will develop a food allergy and it's almost 1 in 5 for other allergies.
Until now, there has not been any organisation to specifically fund research into allergy and other immune diseases in Australia and New Zealand. Whilst Australia has world class researchers in these fields, funding is very limited. The Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (AIFA) is trying to fill this gap.
This year, AIFA grants have supported research to help understand why allergy is increasing, to find preventions and better treatments.
"As a family commitment to raising $2000 for AIFA and awareness of allergies in our community, I have collaborated with my son, Ben, to recreate a design that he painted and our family loves. Moteef will donate $10 from the sale of every Circles outdoor cushion".
