O incêndio consumiu tudo.


No dia 1 de Setembro, um incêndio que deflagrou em Lisboa, junto a São Bento, consumiu todos os bens pessoais e todas as ferramentas de trabalho de Edwaldo Pegado, conhecido pelos amigos como Eddie.

Eddie é um dos fundadores da Bantumen, uma magazine online criada há cinco anos que escreve sobre a cultura luso-africana, e que tem tido como missão promover o intercâmbio cultural entre os países lusófunos.

Construída apenas com capitais próprios e sendo uma magazine online pequena, Eddie fazia da sua pequena casa escritório e lar em simultâneo.

Na altura do incêndio, Eddie tinha saído por momentos, e quando voltou, os bombeiros no local, chamados para controlar as chamas, já não o deixaram subir para recuperar nada. Ficou apenas com as roupas que tinha no corpo.

Felizmente nem Eddie nem a sua filha (que estava com a mãe) sofreram nenhum tipo de ferimento, e estão bem de saúde, para além do choque que estão a tentar ultrapassar.

Eddie está neste momento nos abrigos da Santa Casa da Misericórdia.

Alguns amigos organizaram-se para criar esta campanha de crowdfunding de forma a tentar obter o dinheiro necessário para obter novamente as ferramentas de trabalho do Eddie, para que este possa o mais rapidamente possível voltar ao trabalho e recompôr a sua vida.

The fire took everything from Eddie.

On September 1st, a fire in Lisbon destroyed all the work tools and personal belongings of Edwaldo Pegado, known by his friends as Eddie.

Eddie is one of the founders of Bantumen, an online magazine on it's fifth year of existence that writes about the  the African Portuguese culture and promotes the cultural exchange between Lusophone countries.

Bantumen was built entirely from personal capital, and being a small online magazine, it had no dedicated office space, so Eddie's small house also served as his office.

When the fire started, Eddie had left home, and by the time he got back, the firemen present at the scene did not allow him to enter the building to retrieve any of his belonging. All that was left were the clothes he was dressed in. 

Fortunately, Eddie and his daughter (that was with her mother at the time) suffered no injuries and both are healthy, apart from the shock that they are still trying to get over.

Eddie is currently living in a shelter provided by the Santa Casa da Misericórdia (Lisbon's Holy House of Mercy).

Some of his friends have organized this crowdfunding campaign in order to try to raise the necessary money to buy his work tools once again, so that he can resume work as quickly as possible.
