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.

Hello Everybody,

I am now closing this fund raising page. It is amazing what we have done together!!!!

I would like to clarify something I think is important. When you did a donation, the money was taken in by a company called STRIPES who later sends us the money. So far all donation arrived but I think one donor did not know about STRIPE so did not recognise the donation he or she did. Therefore STRIPE has written to me stating that the person has disputed the money so they had to make a refund.

If you have a doubt, please let me know. I ll double check and make sure to clarify things for you.

I just want to let you know because I maybe I should have made it clear earlier. My bad not yours!!!! I just hope it won t make too much of a fuss for all parties involved.

So my sister and I gave a first round of money to Mayor Eddie. My sister will give him the remaining of the money next week. I will certainly receive another letter from him to confirm the receipt of the money. I will post it whenever I ll receive it.

Thank you all for your donation. I send you all the love , blessings and wish you a happy, healthy, fullfiling life. We all need each other for support. I am happy to know that a lot of you have been part of this journey. I am so grateful. Your generosity made me realise how a small click on the internet could gather lots of support and love and for me a big learning curve about serving wholeheartedly. Thank you again for everything.

Much love,

Preet Kamal

Hello everyone,

I just received a message from Mr Mayor of Antalaha who confirmed me that he received the money. He presented with 12,265,000 MGA (Ariary) and he is very if not beyond grateful. He said he will now be able to initiate new actions.
He will write a couple of formal letters for us tomorrow and I ll post them when I receive them.
So my friends, thank you so so so so much again for being part of this. Antalaha is rebuilding itself and had lots of support from around the world.
Bye for now,

blessings,
