My name is Manuel Oettl, I own a Boutique Marketing agency in Mozambique with staff and offices in the South, Centre and North of the country.
Mozambique has recently had a massive natural disaster in Cyclone IDAI. I imagine that many people will be starting some form of generic funding pages for this disaster because there are an esstimated 600 000 people who have been displaced and this figure is sure to rise !
With this said i realise that people will be very confused about where to donate so this is my plea..........
Our goal on this page is very specific, it is to help our 8 staff members living in the Beira / Chimoio belt (the city and zone where the Cyclone struck at its most powerful) to rebuild their houses and thereafter, their lives.
Most of them lost a minimum of pieces of their roofs, windows walls and most of their personal belongings, some lost more........see below the house of one of our staffers Domingues..its a total loss !
On the very positive side, we had no casualties of staff or their direct families sides, which is a miracle in its own.
To whomever is prepared to donate, we will give you the name of the person and photos of the work done with your money so you have a real Human being that you will now have a life time link with, even though you have never met them before.
I have posted a team picture less 2 Chimoio staffers, ill post pics of them soonest.
What I am asking for above really is really just a drop in the ocean compared to what is needed, but you can help rebuild the lives of these 8 individuals.
Any monies raised over and above this will be used to support directly the family members of any of our staffers who have been effected.
I will kick off the campaign by donating 10% of the requested campaign amount to the fund. Please, please help us support our very valued staffers who have truly lost a lot due to this disaster !
