UPDATE on Madeiras situation
As we are getting a lot of messages and e-mails asking about our well beeing we would like to update you on the current situation. Things are much calmer today, the fire seems to be under control. We had to cancel a few trips but tomorrow we will be going out on normal times.
A lot of people are in need of help, so let’s help them how we can! Later I’ll update this post with a list of ways you can help those in need.
We also would like to praise and thank the firefighters that have been working non stop the past days keeping us safe. THANK YOU!
HOW CAN WE HELP?

Products should be delivered at the RG3, in Nazaré.
In the meantime I will try to get more information about actions that are taking place in Calheta, as this area was also affected by the fire. I will keep this post updated.
Today (11.08.2016) our trips went all smoothly and we are all staying positive as the fire seems to be under control.
