Family farmstay and house burned

Hi, I'm Tom.
I help running a little family farmhouse in south Italy.

We spent the winter building fire defenses, but the 17th of July 2017 fire was too strong. It arrived from 3 mountains north and we fought it ourselves, managing to save half the farm, but in the end we had to run away. There were no firemen nor police.

The south zone was damaged: my mother's house got destroyed, and the field below it too, where we were raising hundreds of trees in the hope of building a forest. Photos below speak for themselves.

Since there are no insurances nor founds for these emergencies here, any help would be useful to restore our house and the woods.

We always loved the idea to be a green spot on the map, we won't give up now.
Thank you!

Here's a video I found.
