The Fire
My dear friend Fiona and her family have lost their  home, business and all of their belongings in a bush fire in central Portugal. They had to leave the property very quickly and therefore were unable to take much with them except a change of clothes and a laptop. 

Fiona's children and partner Nuno. 

We are so happy that they are safe but the fire swept through the property and thier whole home has been engulfed and burnt. 

Yurt & Kitchen

What They Lost
For 9 years Fiona and family have worked hard to set up an off grid eco friendly Yoga Holiday Retreat in a beautiful peaceful valley. Guests stay in handmade yurts, do yoga practice and eat fresh food from the extensive garden.

The fire has taken 3 yurts, fully set up kitchens, yoga deck, family home and a half bulit house. All the tools and supplies needed to run the retreats as well as water tanks have been ruined. Fiona's 3 daughters have lost everything they own.

Anyone who has stayed at this this property will know the love and passion that has gone into creating this amazing retreat. Link to buisness:

How Can You Help
Any spare cash you can donate to help this family rebuild thier life would be appreciated and used wisely. They have lost 9 years of work and an estamted 80-100 k of buildings, tools, and supplies.

This is the sole income of thier family and with no insurance available they really need your help. All money will go directly to Fiona's family. You can also help by sharing this gofundme post with your friends and family. Let's get them back on track.

We wanted to share our recent good news with everyone who has contributed to our crowdfund. Work has just started this week on our house, which is all being funded by an engineering company from Lisbon. So it's amazing news for us to be moving back to our land in the spring, into a new house!!

All the money raised from the crowdfund will go into restarting our retreats. For 2018 we will probably run some yoga and working holidays with projects including herb garden creation, a big natural building project, reforestation and rebuilding our organic garden.

Thank you so much to everyone who made donations. The support from friends and other people generally has been overwhelming and has made the past few weeks a lot easier. Sending all love from Portugal.
