"We will not be able to rebuild the houses, nor save what was built for life. But we believe that we can lend a hand in this difficult moment, so we will be able to give HOPE!", the organizers also write.

In Karavelovo, they are calling for volunteers to get involved in delivering food and protecting houses from marauders

In the affected villages of Karlovo region there is an urgent need for volunteers who, in addition to cleaning up, will get involved in delivering food and water to the separated families. In addition, reports of marauders roaming around and robbing people's houses are becoming more frequent. Calls for help also appeared on social networks.

Anyone who has the opportunity can go to a place in any of the affected villages and help, as the situation continues to be dire.

"At first, the affected families continue to need volunteers to clear mud and garbage from the yards. We also need a new initiative because of the many frequent groups and marauders that go around the houses. We call for volunteers - necessarily local residents, to patrol in the evening with the police because they know and can much more easily recognize suspicious persons and outsiders," explained the coordinator of the local crisis headquarters in Karavelovo.

Because of the raids, the police have suggested that local residents join the night patrols in the villages. Volunteers are needed to deliver water and food. So far there is food, but there is still a need for more bottled water, canned food, bedding - sheets, blankets, pillows, mattresses. There is a great need for new clothes, socks and shoes.

Since the kindergarten in Karavelovo was also damaged, the children will be transported to the branch in Karlovo, where they will begin the school year. In the kindergarten itself in the village, there is a need for 20 beds, besides tables, chairs, toys.
