Daniel Merandi - The Helping Hands Foundation for Habitat and Humanity

  1. 1. HHFHH FOUNDATION PROJECTS SUMMARY The Helping Hands Foundation for Habitat and Humanity (HHFHH) ‘key’ areas of service delivery again are: • Health • Environment & Energy • Agriculture • Housing • Education • Telecoms/IT In Health our core project is the development of ECPN, located in Berlin, Germany. This innovative healthcare model is seen as the flagship of the Foundation for both Research & Development and the implementation of ground breaking medical treatments. From this healthcare dynamic will emerge other healthcare initiatives and deliveries, for example hospitals and clinics worldwide. The patents involved are state of the art advances in nanotechnology treatments of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimers, Hepatitis B, HIV Aids and other major diseases which affect citizens of the Developing, as well as in the Industrialized nations. The HHFHH Foundation Headquarters in Europe will be in one of the Seventeen historical buildings originally built in 1907 (see attached pictures) being donated by the Berlin Mayor's Office to ECPN, the for profit operating corporation. Another recently approved Breast Cancer Gel technology, developed in Switzerland allows for the virtual elimination of cancerous tissue in male or female breast cancer thus being able to extirpate without damage to surrounding tissues. The Environment & Energy areas the Foundation is concentrating on are in the areas of Plasma Incineration, Soil Reclamation, Soil Remediation and Conversion of Solid Urban Waste to Green Electric Energy. We have agreements signed with the Ukraine Chernobyl Emergency Ministry for the remediation of contaminated soil with low radiation. Payment for such project services of low radiation solid waste elimination is made by the European Union Emergency Fund once we are operational. At the same time, such remediation allows for the generation of electricity (already negotiated for sale to the European Union countries), therefore the World Bank will provide Carbon Credits to our facilities as additional humanitarian project subsidies. An important aspect of our work is in the area of Agriculture with particular emphasis in working with various new technologies to provide sustainability in difficult to cultivate areas. There is particular emphasis given to the use of modern Greenhouse Technology using solar and thermal energy and at the same time generating the electricity required for such requirements as heating and light at no cost for the surrounding communities. HHFHH first project in Mexico is for production on the US-Mexico Border of 3,000 Hectares of Jatropha, a biofuel crop for production of Bio- Diesel. Jatropha can also be used for foodstuff for cattle or small animals for self sustainability of small communities. The crop has World Bank approval for Carbon Credit subsidies as it reduces Global Warming by reducing fossil fuels consumption. Such Project also eliminates the need for rural and farm workers to migrate to the United States in search of better economic and employment opportunities. Our engineers have developed a multi-function machine which: potabilizes water, generates electricity utilizing biodiesel, grinder and milling of any grains but specialized in Jatropha seeds for biodiesel extraction with a per unit cost of less than One Hundred Thousand USD. The creation of models of low cost Housing is a major part of the Foundation goals and rural housing construction projects are being considered. Our French-developed construction technology
  2. 2. reduces the cost per square foot drastically as all materials are prefabricated and installed without pilferage or waste of materials and also reduces completion time by more than 50% compared to traditional construction techniques. It can be used for rural low cost housing in its basic version. Also, in the South East Asian countries and in Africa, with the use of Bamboo we can build structures for housing or education or health delivery services at very low cost to prevent deforestation by cutting wood trees. Water sanitation and desalination is also included in such projects as basic health protection in rural communities. Contracts for builiding of housing in Ghana, Morroco, and other African countries for several hundreds of thousands of housing units are in place and require immediate implementation. The Foundation considers Education to be critical in underdeveloped areas and is creating education models to address this issue. In conjunction with the French Ministry of Education and the Teachers Union we can develop the best education software programs for our Village Education Projects and its adequate delivery via our Telecommunication Broadband Powerlines Project reducing costs by allowing for rural education to remote non-accessible areas. The MIT Global Education Project of providing the Basic Laptop with cost of One Hundred US Dollars to be highly compatible with our telecommunication project goals. All the functions and core areas of the Foundation’s work cannot be sustained without good Communications. As such investment into telecoms and IT projects will continue to ensure that certain technologies can enhance the work of the Foundation and its end users to assist in reducing the Digital Gap between those countries with and without adequate infrastructure. The HHFHH telecommunications project includes an Internet Broadband Service via Utilities Powerlines which allows for rapid service to any community at a very reduced price of Five Dollars per month per household or school with very high quality for local or international calls, conferences or live- teaching sessions, et al. Each of these core areas of the work of the Foundation are in themselves extremely important and will make a significant contribution to peoples lives. They can and will be delivered on a Project for Project basis in selected countries. INTEGRATED VILLAGE CONCEPT The Foundation has a deeply held belief to make a profound contribution to the lives of disadvantaged people throughout the world. We know through research and observation that giving money direct is simply not good enough and in some ways neither is the constantly sub-contracting out of the aid to third parties. The Foundation therefore has worked assiduously to bring together the constituent parts to create the ‘whole’ under its own auspice. In this way it can deliver the assistance required in a focused and measured way without fear of corruption or indeed failure and as such we believe the Project(s) will eventually be self sustaining and ‘stand alone’. The model of an Integrated Village is one, we believe that offers the most practical and direct way to empower people and affect their lives. It is modular is its design and brings together resources to create a real opportunity for people to take control of their own lives, give hope and create a future. However, the major fundamental vision that underpins the work of the Foundation is to see ALL the above technologies and innovations working together for the common good. As such a key tenet of the Foundation’s work is the creation of a model of an eco village for under privileged areas. Our vision is to create self sustaining, small manageable eco villages with a size of 1000- 2000 inhabitants. This ‘model’, which is modular and very flexible can be adapted to any area of the world. It is simple, robust and the Foundation is absolutely committed to not only implementing them but ensuring their success and sustainability. The concept in outline is simple, the creation of small cooperative communities. The Foundation will provide all the funding, manpower and equipment
  3. 3. required over a sustained period (2-3 years) to allow the creation of these self sustaining eco villages in under privileged areas and regions of the world. The Foundation will use its own technologies, processes, dedicated manpower, strategic alliances and sister charities to deliver this model and to maintain absolute probity and checks and balances regarding the quality of delivery versus efective funds management. The Foundation has and continues to develop relationships with other charities that can compliment its own work. A key feature of the Foundation will be the formation of a ‘workforce’ of retired and semi retired staff that have the direct skills critical for the implementation of the Projects, particularly the eco village model. The recruitment of this workforce will be a critical factor for success. The model of the eco village will comprise the following: • Securing of land • Agricultural methods to produce crops for alternative fuel for energy or food. • Low cost family housing. • Sanitation and Waste Water treatment • Power Generation • School • Medical center • Employment & Training and Income Generation Projects to prevent migrations • Communications/ for communal facilities (e.g. school/medical center) This Foundation funded self sustaining social model for under privileged areas will be replicated throughout the target countries. Such a small social model will work well and profoundly change the lives of the inhabitants. October 2009.
