In partnership with the Social Welfare Office of City Council of Leiria, MaiFix launches this campaign to raise funds to rehabilitate/repair at least a house of a family in the area of Leiria.

The district of Leiria, as happens all over the country, has dozens of families who unfortunately and due to the economic situation, was forced to swap homes and in some cases even ask for full support to entities such as the City Council, Social Security or social solidarity institutions, to have a place where they could live in.

Although we can not offer accommodation to those in need, we want to improve the housing of whom has it's own but severely dammaged. Especially those suffering with severe leaks and poor insulation, which in extreme cases can even take lifes.

So, being MaiFix an online platform to request estimates, we decided to create this campaign in collaboration with a credible entity that could mention one or more families that actually need help.

The estimate request in MaiFix, so that professionals can answer, will only be inserted when we reach the minimum amount we ask for and after that, together with a representative from the City Council of Leiria, we will carefully check the chosen house(s) to collect all the necessary information.

If it is necessary to have the family temporary relocated, the City Council expresses it's readiness also to help in this process, not offering housing because unfortunately there are no social housing available due to the huge number of requests that exists, but in supporting the family to talk to known people, relatives or friends to accept one or more persons temporarily during the most critical works.

Needless to say that 100% of the total amount will be used for renovations/repairs and if we can double, triple, etc. we will try to help even more families and repair more houses (e.g. if we get triple the amount, we will be able to help three families).

As for the final arrangements, it will be allocated to each family. That is, will be donated to them, not in the form of money, but in the form of medicines they may need and/or food supply.

About the author

MaiFix is an online platform for any person or entity to request free estimates, also allowing the registration of companies and professionals so that they can answer to those requests.

MaiFix is one of the trademarks of MaiDot, Lda., company founded in 2013 by two partners. Pedro Lima with a degree in Business Management, Digital Marketing teacher and with extensive experience in IT with several specific trainings in that area, and Gonçalo Costa, PhD student in Knowledge Management & Ethics, Bachelor in Economics, Graduate Diploma in E-Business / Information Systems and Master in Management and is also a professor at UAL.

MaiDot it's only in it's second year of activity, but already has a double-digit growth this year compared with homologous period, thanks to growth in the business areas of business consultancy, digital marketing, software development and web development.

After participation in the Workshop "Florida Comes To Lisbon", held in late October 2014, the project was able to get the interest and investment of a Portuguese BA (Business Angel) resident in Florida (USA), to implement the platform in several states.

Recently MaiFix established a direct partnership with BNP Paribas through Cetelem brand, to enable any person to simulate and apply for a personal credit for repairs/renovations at home.

Budget and due dates

As already mentioned, the aim will be to get as much funding and when the value reaches the amount that is to be minimum per family / household (1,000€), we can help another family. That is, assuming we achieved 1200€, 1,000€ would be used for remodeling and the remainder 200€ for buying medication if necessary and / or food products. The suggestion of families with real need will be appointed by the Social Welfare Office of the City Council of Leiria, which can be contacted to confirm the veracity of this action, in partnership with MaiFix that will use the platform to insert the estimate request and also appealing for solidarity of professionals. For example, if the cost of remodeling is actually 1,500€ and professional also wants to do he's share of social solidarity and offer a smaller estimate, it will be better for everyone. The forecast for completion of the work will vary greatly depending on the house and the complexity of the job. But of course that we will try to have this finished as soon as possible, always with the utmost professionalism and for that need a good professional.
