Relief aid for ANTALAHA from ENAWO


At 9:00 am on the 07 march 2017, Powerful category 4 tropical cyclone ENAWO hit the seaside town of Antalaha at full speed. Destructive winds were above 250 km/hour while its eye was moving slowly at only 10 km/hour, which destroyed the town nearly at 80%.

100% of the wooden houses are all gone, 80% of stronger houses are hit, all power supply has been cut, and 80% of all plantations are destroyed.

The locals are doing their best to help each other  but funds will be needed to support the relief. These people earn only about £50 a month per family at the most to live on and most of them lived in wooden houses. Therefore they desperatly need to be helped.

This collect aims to raising money to help the mayor (Mr Eddie Fernand) and his team with for any kind of supplies needed: food, medicine, energy, clothing, drinkable water, blankets and so on. But also reconstruction of huts, houses, construction of shelters etc…

As for the 10 march 2017 some examples of the prices I was told are:
- 1 iron sheet for roofing costs about £6 (about 7 Euros)
- 1 blanket costs about £4 (about £5 euros)
- 1  rice bag (50 kg) costs about £ 21 (about 24 euros)

Thank you very much for your generosity and help. As a person from Antalaha, on behalf of my fellow Antalahian, I am grateful for even the smallest donation

Love, light and blessings to all.
