Dreamglade Relief Fund

Update posted by Stacy Povey On Jun 09, 2020

It’s very late, as I have had to wait until the kids are fast asleep so that I finally have some peace and quiet to write this. To be honest, I am really struggling to come up with the right words to convey the overwhelming gratitude that I have been feeling whilst watching all of the donations flooding in, so quickly, that we reached our target within just TWO DAYS……. (and they are still coming in)

I am literally speechless……

I had so many doubts about ‘reaching out’ to all of you, feelings of guilt, deep discomfort and even embarrassment coming up for me really strongly but when I witnessed the avalanche of payments reaching us and as i went through message after message after message from you guys, expressing your support, I was literally blown away by this huge tidal wave of LOVE !!

Man…. It takes a lot to make me cry but I felt the tears welling up as I read each and every one of them…. (here I go again !!)

Thank you so, so much !!!

A weight literally lifted off of my shoulders when it finally sank in that I was in the clear, that we had received sufficient funding to survive through the upcoming months.

My next dilemma was how to distribute some of the proceeds to all of the Dreamglade crew as quickly and fairly as possible and I have already sent some funds to Raul, Lidia and Adelaide in Pucallpa (they wanted me to say a big thank you from them) and I will be giving all of my local workers a nice big bonus when I see them on Friday

Obviously I’m not gonna blow it all in the first week because I believe we still have quite a bit of time left until we will be able to open the centre again.

The Peruvian Government announced over the weekend that they are “considering” opening up international flights in August but this has yet to be officially confirmed. They have changed their stance so many times over these last few months that I am not going to get too excited just yet.

Added to this, I believe that a lot of people will still be reluctant to travel so soon after the lockdown. I am also observing that different countries are going to open up at different speeds and also that citizens of certain countries, where they have had seriously large outbreaks, could possibly be considered ‘undesirables’ until they get things under control.

The U.S. and the U.K. both appear to be on that list which accounts for around 70% of our guests so I’m cautiously hoping that we can start up our first retreats for around September/October…..

Obviously, I also have to carefully weigh up the risks of having guests travelling here from different parts of the world and the very real possibility that myself and my staff getting infected….. (that would not make me very popular around Iquitos !!)

If any of you have any news about your prospective countries and their planned lifting of travel restrictions it would be awesome if you could post that info here so we can get a general idea of how the situation is progressing around the world….

I’m not sure what else needs to be said other than……

YOU ALL ROCK !!!

I’m feeling so much Love for you all right now, for those that sent us donations and also those that are with us in spirit xxxxx

(and I understand completely that so many of you are having to deal with your own financial difficulties right now)

Stay safe guys and I can’t wait to see some of you back out in the jungle one day in the not-too-distant future for some super-charged ceremonies to blow away all the stress that we have all been feeling !!

A Big Hug from all of us xxx
