Not everyone in the UK or beyond is aware of the terrible wildfires that have ravaged central Portugal. Many families have lost their homes, all their possessions, their income and dozens died. Wildlife has ravaged vast areas that have been left looking like Armageddon.
Choking fumes and smouldering embers are all that remain. Some villages still have no water or electric supply. Food stocks have been depleted and winter is coming to the mountains. It can be bitter cold with heavy rain for weeks on end. Livestock and wild animals have no food supply.
We are asking for donations - just a pound or two - to help the mountain communities begin to rebuild their lives.
We will share with you the stories as new life starts to emerge from the charcoal embers of the old villages.
Thank you for your help - a small amount can make a big big difference x
