Cyclone IDAI Rebuild Fund

Update posted by Manuel Oettl On Jun 07, 2019

Morning all,

as you all know from the Platform we raised a substantial amount of money off-line for this project....this is thanks to my good friends in South Africa, Natalie De Lacerda, Andre De Lacedra and the amazing team of staff at Holly Rosary and Jeppe Preparatory schools.


through these efforts have received a 4 ton lot of essential living goods and food stuffs...

After a long battle with customs authorities we have finally managed to get the living materials across the border and are in the process of sorting and will be distributing them next week.

the food stuffs, if you can believe this were not given clearance to come in....people are dying and the mozambican government managed find a ridiculous reason not to give people in need this food.

Enter Natalie and the team at Makro South Africa who gave us a full refund for all goods purchased THANK YOU SO MUCH Natalie and MARKO South Africa....true heroes !!

we have received the money now in country and we will be buying goods at port in Beira from a large local distributor so everyone will get their food parcels and more.....

what an effort by an amazing bunch for people, thank you all and we will keep you posted on the roll outs.

as far goes the house rebuilds, all are done, I have video thank yous from every person but I am battling to upload video to this platform...I have mailed for help and will send video as soon as I can get it up..

will post final pics next week as well along with delivery pics of each person getting their parcels.

we have stoped the fundraising efforts as we have succeeded in our goal of rebuilding these houses and providing them with support for the foreseeable future !!

thank you all so much for being part of this journey, it has been a special one !

finally my team on the ground, Nasser, Julio, Jane, Asside, Dere, thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for you inputs, we could not have done this without you !!


Love and respect

Manuel

First monies were paid out this morning, total of 100 000MZM which is roughly 28 000 rand and this is for the purchase of the most NB materials needed for the rebuilding of Domingues and Theresa' homes, the 2 worst affected team members.

proof of payment below and we will post pictures as soon as we start building.

have a great day further,

Manuel

Morning All,

We are very pleased to let you know that between our online and offline donations we have raised enough money to rebuild all of the 5 staff members who lost their homes and we have enough to put food and staple goods parcels together for each of them.

With this said, my team leader in Beira Nasser, on the far left of the picture in the blue shirt, will today start to procure materials for the rebuild to start.

We are starting with Domingues and Theresa who lost basically their whole homes and we will move to the rest as we can.

We will start to post pictures as building starts, stay tuned.

best Manuel
