Weʼre raising £300,000 to help the families who have been devastated by the forest fire which took the life of 61 victims and has destroyed homes and dreams.
On Saturday, 17 June an intense heatwave and rainless thunderstorms, with temperatures of more than 40C (104F) has hit Portugal taking the life of dozens of people who fled their homes looking for a safest place in the middle of the forest.
The country is now mourning for the 64 victims of one of the country's deadliest forest fires where bodies have been found inside of cars, in their villages and on the motorway. Police say lightning striking a tree may have caused the fire.
This is an authentic page, created by someone with Portuguese roots. The money raised will go to some of the people who lost their possessions. Every contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Portugal is a beautiful country, full of kind people. This region is now in need of our help. As someone grateful for everything this country has given to my loved ones, I would like to ask for your contribution.
Portugal is now suffering a terrible tragedy, fire related, similar of what we have just experienced in London. If you have been in Portugal, if you enjoy holidays, weekends or anything related to this country, I am sure you will be touched by this cause.
We are all completely stunned by the number of deaths. Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected. Help, share, contribute....
God bless you all.
