Alfred has been part of the international community in Osaka for more years than he would probably care to admit, but beyond that Alfred runs the Renegaid Community Support project. He has helped countless people through difficult, even sometimes harrowing, experiences. He has counselled, connected and supported people here in Kansai since the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.
If you are reading this then no doubt you probably have stories of your own about Alfred, perhaps of a time he helped you out of a difficult situation.
Now it is Alfred who is dealing with a difficult situation. For the last few years Alfred has been dealing with kidney disease that requires regular dialysis for which he may need to travel back to Europe for a transplant. Sadly, in the past week Alfred has been hospitalized due to problems that we have only just learned are due to cancer in his colon.
Alfred's funds are limited so we are asking for donations to see him through this difficult period.

Surgery ScheduledUpdate posted by Simon Collier at 02:49 am
Alfred’s surgery has now been scheduled for June 29th. Medical costs are now largely covered between fundraising and his own limited funds but there’s still some way to go. Thanks again to everyone who has donated so far
Surgery delayedUpdate posted by Simon Collier at 08:00 am
Alfred’s surgery is still delayed. He was supposed to be admitted this week but they’re still just doing checks. He’s home for now, surgery is now expected to be at the beginning of June. He’s pretty weak but managing. Hope to have a clear date for his surgery this coming
Home for nowUpdate posted by Simon Collier at 08:21 am
Alfred is back at home until Friday when he’ll be readmitted for two weeks. Surgery hasn’t been scheduled yet but should take place sometime then. Funds gathered will go towards medical costs and some disability support accessories for his apartment. These will include such things as hand rails, a bed
