Help Erez & Louisa after devastating fire

Personal message

Erez and Louisa's farm and livelihood have been devastated by the firestorm that raged through Knysna and Plett. Friends, family and anyone cares for this incredible family can help them rebuild their lives by contributing whatever they can to this crowdfunder.

Erez and Louisa have built up a beautiful productive small farm with free range happy chickens and organic vegetables. Erez is also a talented and well respected carpenter providing much needed employment while Louisa has helped many a baby into the world and supported moms after birth.

Their lives changed on June 7th when the firestorm which raged from Knysna through to Plett devastated their farm. They had evacuated most of their precious belongings into the safety of the large workshed but during the night a fireball from a tree landed on the roof and they had to race away from the flames to safety. They last the entire workshed with all their precious belongings as well as ALL of Erez's tools and machinery. Hundreds of homes were lost in this fire.

Please help Erez and Louisa rebuild their lives and enable Erez to work again by contributing whatever you can to their crowdfund. Everything added together will make a huge difference to this wonderful couple's life, their three children and the land and animals they are custodians of.

Thank you!
