    Weʼve raised £230 to help Neil and Estrella rebuild their home after a major fire

    Davao City, Philippines
    Funded on Tuesday, 9th January 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Meet Neil and Estrella Duhaylungsod and their 3 children, from The Philippines. They lost their home, their possessions and a whole bunch of memories when a raging fire destroyed their home. Video of the fire in full swing

    We can't help everyone that needs help, but perhaps we can help some and genuinely make a difference in their lives.

    What Neil & Estrella need now is to rebuild their 30 metre square home as quickly as possible, so they can then start to rebuild their lives. They are hard-working people, with a small grocery stall.

    They need $2,000 (£1,500) to rebuild their house - they will use steel material since that is much cheaper than wood. $2000 is enough for that - they will start building it as soon as this Monday and can finish within 2-3 weeks depending on their funds. Of course, 2-3 weeks is Christmas, so wouldn't it be a great Christmas present for them?

    I already sent them $500 to start them off - they will use this money to buy a generator, since there is still no electric in the area and they need a welding machine to build.

    They have collected clothing donations from friends and family and are not asking me for help, I offered to help them.

    Shall we pull together and see if we can help to give them the best Christmas present?

    I would be grateful and more importantly, so too would Neil, Estrella and their family.

    Here is their home now...it used to have a second floor for bedrooms.

    Thank you for your support, let's do this!

    Merry Christmas

    Richard

      Progress Report 8th January 2018 The house building is now well under way, as you can see from the images. Neil and Estrella have had to pause the rebuilding work due to limited finances and a competing priority to repair their lorry, which they use to make a living with local deliveries. They have now gone to the bank to try and get a loan to help bridge the gap. I hope that we can help them to avoid at least some of that pain if we can. Much appreciated so far...can we give a final push to get them over the line? Best Richard

      We are now able to send Neil & Estrella another £420 ($562) from online and offline donations to take the total donations so far up to £795 ($1,062) or 53% of our original £1,500 ($2,000) funding target. This is great news! Thank you all so much for your very kind donations...see how they are being used already, this is Neil and some workers on site doing some steel work :) If you could spare a little to help give this family a lift, it would be a wonderful Christmas present for them. Thank you. Richard
