Macao 2019. In the midst of misfortunes, the story of a couple from one of the first villages ravaged by fire. The car, which had been packed there for less than an hour, burned. It is urgent to "return" the car to this family. Are we counting on you?

There are stories, within the day-to-day, more or less dramatic stories that keep us brooding. For good and for bad.
We know that many need help because the fire that invaded Macao on the weekend of July 20 brought that population, particularly the parishes of Amêndoa and Cardigos, very discouraged. Crops, forest, backyards, houses, farm implements, tractors, heritage and the work of a lifetime were lost.
With this awareness and eyes on the future and in the calming of the pains, there was, among all stories, one that touched us and that needs to be resolved now! Some because they spread it, others because they read it.
Amid the misfortunes came the story of a couple from one of the first villages hit in the parish of Cardigos, who after the fire passed and burned their land, were left with their house and car, sheltered in the village square. After an exhausting day, when the danger seemed to have passed, you went to fix the car. And they went to rest. Around midnight several people came to this village, making rounds. No one was seen. They noticed, however, that a shed seemed to drop flame from the roof. They approached and confirmed the worst. It was on fire. They did not expect yet that a car was inside as well. The couple's car, packed there less than an hour ago. And it burned. Everything in the shed burned. The roof will have burned to death.
You have appeared. Who still wanted to rescue the car. Already on fire. What little I had. He was taken from there in despair.
We followed this story. Which was brooding ... In another story, the story of a lady, too, from there, who burned a lot but stressed, with pity, the dismay of a neighbor who burned the car. A huge sadness. This story continued to brood ...
We went talking to each other and talked to people who knew and followed this situation. They had no insurance against all risks. They didn't deserve it. Humble people, without evil. He is very shaken. Psychologically weakened. And we asked family members about the possibility of getting a car. And the answer was that they accepted him "with an open heart."
Got the car. Next to what I had. And this idea that has to be fast. See if we can rescue her soul. The hope.
The value of this campaign reverts to the stand. That keeps us the car. That made a discount.
With the support that is expected for this population this car will have no other support than this one. And that is what we ask. The value of the car.
We understand that the time to reborn some hope is now. With the contribution of all who can, we can quickly raise this value and "return" the car to this family. Are we counting on you?

About the author

We are Vera, Jerónimo, Patricia, Luís, Mário, Joana and another Patricia. We all work in communication. Of all the stories of the July 2019 Macao fires, one has touched us. Some because they spread it, others because they read it. When we realized that there was no insurance or other support for that story, that car, we decided to write a happy ending! That simple!
The money will be channeled directly to the "Carpego" Stand, which has joined us!

Budget and due dates

The money totally reverts to the car acquisition.
August 20, 2019 It's been a month since the car burned down. It would be the indicated date to deliver the "new" car.
We extended the campaign until August 31st but if we go fast ... Better !!!
