Our home is damaged by strong 6.4 earthquake that devastated city of Petrinja and surrounding areas on December 29, 2020. Powerful quake shaken our home in Dubranec in Vukomeric hills, 30km from epicenter, followed by frequent ground shaking. Building experts made initial check up and our house is now insecure for living and need to be fully fixed. Roof is temporary fixed but we will need a new one, there are numerous cracks through the wall and static of the house is disturbed. Luckily, we are all safe. Our 9 years old son and me are sleeping at our family and husband is in old camphouse close to our home with our pets, so he can be there and respond quickly. City of Velika Gorica will provide us with living container so we could be at safe place. The ground is still shaking all the time and with every new stronger earthquake the house is more insecure.

Two years ago we came from Zagreb to the small village in the hills to settle and start our story, together with other young families gathered around permacultural association ZMAG. Our goal was to move out of city to rural area in order to start more healthy and less stressful life and use our knowledge and experience to revive the area together with other enthusiasts.

One of the most important steps was to build a new house using different natural materials, because the one that was already there was build in 1942 without construction standards and it was in pretty bad condition at the time. Until now we made foundation and boiler room for a new house and then we made a pause till we earn more financial resources, but the earthquake surprised us and destroyed the house we lived in. Deep cracks through the walls, destroyed chimney and cracks in foundation made our house unsafe for living. The only permanent solution is to speed up the building of new one, because of fully reparation of damaged house is too expensive and unsatisfying.

We decided to stay in the village since our son is going in a village school, we have pets and garden. Also, we came with a vision of permaculture estate where different activities would be held, like workshops in nature, education for children and adults, retreats, music sessions and conscious dance. We already made permaculture redesign of village school's yard with herbal spiral, supported by donations for my music compilation "Forest Garden".

Many of you already expressed a will to help us and we are deeply grateful. As soon as the weather permit us, we will start with the primary reconstruction of old house so we can live in it and simultaneously continue to build a new one. Thank you all for care, we feel deeply supported by your concern and your will to help us.

Snažni potres 6.4 oštetio je našu kuću u Dubrancu (Vukomeričke gorice), 30 km od epicentra, praćen čestim podrhtavanjem tla. Statičari su obavili inicijalni pregled i naša je kuća sada nesigurna za život i treba je u potpunosti renovirati. Krov je privremeno popravljen, ali trebat će nam novi, kroz zid postoje brojne pukotine i statika kuće je poremećena. Srećom, svi smo na sigurnom. Naš 9-godišnji sin i ja spavamo kod obitelji, a suprug je u staroj kamp kućici blizu naše kuće s kućnim ljubimcima, tako da može biti tamo i brzo reagirati. Grad Velika Gorica osigurat će nam kontejner kako bismo mogli biti na sigurnom. Tlo se i dalje cijelo vrijeme trese i sa svakim novim jačim potresom kuća je sve nesigurnija.

Prije dvije godine došli smo iz Zagreba u malo selo u brdima kako bismo se smjestili i započeli svoju priču, zajedno s ostalim mladim obiteljima okupljenim oko permakulturne udruge ZMAG. Cilj nam je bio preseliti se iz grada u ruralno područje kako bismo započeli zdraviji i manje stresan život i iskoristili svoje znanje i iskustvo za oživljavanje područja, zajedno s ostalim entuzijastima.

Jedan od najvažnijih koraka bio je izgradnja nove kuće uz korištenje prirodnih materijala, jer je ova koja je već bila izgrađena 1942. godine bez građevinskih standarda bila u prilično lošem stanju. Do sada smo napravili temelje i kotlovnicu za novu kuću, a zatim smo napravili stanku dok ne skupimo više financijskih sredstava, ali potres nas je iznenadio i uništio kuću u kojoj smo živjeli. Duboke pukotine kroz zidove, uništeni dimnjak i pukotine u temeljima učinili našu kuću nesigurnom za život. Jedino trajno rješenje je ubrzati izgradnju nove, jer je potpuna sanacija oštećene kuće preskupa i nezadovoljavajuća.

Odlučili smo ostati u selu budući da naš sin ide u seosku školu, imamo kućne ljubimce i vrt. Također, došli smo s vizijompermakulturnog imanja na kojem bi se održavale različite aktivnosti, poput radionica u prirodi, edukacije za djecu i odrasle, retreat-a i svjesnog plesa. Već smo napravili permakulturni redizajn dvorišta seoske škole s biljnom spiralom, potpomognut donacijama za moju glazbenu kompilaciju "Forest Garden“.

Mnogi od vas već su izrazili volju da nam pomognu i duboko smo im zahvalni. Čim nam vremenske prilike dozvole, započet ćemo s primarnom rekonstrukcijom stare kuće kako bismo u njoj mogli živjeti i istovremeno nastavili graditi novu. Hvala svima na brizi, osjećamo vašu duboku potporu i to je ono što nam daje nadu.
