• FINANCIAL BALANCE - DONATIONS - FINANCIAL SITUATION

     

    IMPORTANT  :

    The application made to the Turkish government for help has been rejected.
    The farm do not receive any other income or help but the one of her friends, YOU.
    For some incredible and complex administrative reasons, when i quited aviation for medical reasons, i could not benefit from my insurance, neither could i benefit from early retirement.
    So although i had taken these precautions since long... i find myself in the incredible and inexpected situation of having no income at all.

    The only way now for the farm to generate some income is through the yoga classes in Antalya.
    At present they only start to cover their own expenses (rental of the place and transportation). Yet they are likely to develop positively and thus might participate in covering the farm’s expenses which are still high.

    Developement project of the yoga classes :
     ICCA Internation Community College of Antalya could accept yoga classes for children and team.
     GLORIA Hôtels in Antalya, are likely to accept yoga interventions in the form of yoga days/ week ends/ even weeks. Public would be large but also specific for the Gloria Hotels project to host high level sportsmen and woman training and offered to participate in their training with yoga.

    Of course as soon as the farm can host again seminars, this should bring about some income too.
    Hopefully next year.

    Lastly as far as the suit is concerned, there should be money coming, but it might take long time.
    We do hope that a friendly agreement will take place. Otherwise the suit might last for years..
    The soon coming meeting in the Court will hopefully give us more information about this.

  • BILAN FINANCIER - DONATIONS - SITUATION FINANCIERE

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A NOTER :

    La demande d’aide effectuée auprès du gouvernement Turc  après l'incendie a été rejetée.
    La ferme ne reçoit aucune aide extérieure que celle de ses amis, vous.
    Pour des raisons administratives abracadabrantes et trop longues à expliquer, je n’ai eu droit, en quittant l’aviation pour cause d’inaptitude médicale DEFINITIVE  ni au dédommagement de mon assurance, ni à l’obtention d’une retraite anticipée.

    Malgré toutes les précautions que j’avais prise pourtant, je me retrouve sans aucun revenu.

    Le seul moyen à présent pour la ferme de générer quelques rentrées est par les cours de yoga donnés à Antalya. Les cours génèrent à présent un léger bénéfice qui , bien que petit, n'a fait qu'augementer au cours des deniers mois. 

    Il y a donc bon espoir qu’ils se développent et ainsi reculent  l'échéance des cinq mois de survie financière.

      

    Projet de développement des cours de yoga
    -->  ICCA d’Antalya, école internationale, yoga pour les enfants et l’équipe de l’école.
    --> NOUVELLE SALLE DE YOGA pour Septembre avec plus de cours deux jours par semaine, Anglais, Français et TUrc.

      

    Quant au dédommagement espéré par le procès, il devrait arriver, mais quand ? c’est le mystère.
    Il est à espérer qu’une entente à l’amiable puisse prendre place, sinon le procès peut durer des années....
    L’audience qui devrait arriver bientôt nous en dira peut être plus...

  • SITUATION JURIDIQUE

    Vers le 13 septembre 2012
    Au lendemain de l’incendie une enquête menée par les gendarmes a montré clairement que l’incendie est parti du chantier situé en contrebas de la ferme, où des ouvriers faisaient un travail de soudure à l’arc.
    Ils ont vraisemblablement signé des dépositions en disant que oui, le feu a pris aux branchages, qu’ils ont essayé de l’éteindre avant d’appeler les pompiers, et puis tout est allé très vite, le feu s’est propagé.

    Vers fin septembre 2012
    Un procès a été ouvert avec l’avocat de la ferme Yunus Emre, qui est bilingue, même trilingue, et peut tout m’expliquer dans un parfait français, ce qui est indispensable.
    Dans un premier temps nous avons transmis dans le dossier, notre plainte ainsi que la demande de dédommagement des pertes subies.

    Ensuite, il fallait attendre la réponse des parties adverses qui sont au nombre de trois :
    Les ouvriers en tant que personnes physiques ;
    La société qui les employait, compagnie d’électricité, Yildiz Elektrik ;
    La compagnie effectuant le travail du barrage DSI, qui avait sous-traité le travail électrique à Yildiz Elektrik.

    Fin février 2013
    La réponse des parties adverses s’est fait connaître :
    Les ouvriers à présent disent qu’ils ont pu éteindre le début de feu qu’ils avaient créé.
    La société Yildiz dit que les ouvriers ne sont pas sous sa responsabilité et que de toute façon, elle n’existe pas en tant que société.
    La compagnie DSI dit que cette histoire n’est pas de sa responsabilité.
    Et tous disent que les dédommagements demandés sont trop élevés.

    L’avocat me dit de ne pas m’inquiéter, tout cela reste normal, il aurait été bien étonnant de voir les accusés dire du premier coup « mais oui, bien sûr, c’est nous ! tenez voilà plein d’argent pour vous ! »
    Bien.
    Il a bien sûr répondu avec arguments et preuves à l’appui, vu que les arguments des parties adverses ne tiennent pas debout...

    Prochaine étape : l’AUDIENCE au Tribunal
    Toutes les parties devraient être présentes, ou représentées par leurs avocats, mais aux dires de l’avocat, il se passe peu de choses durant une audience, ici en Turquie, presque tout se passe par écrit, en échangeant des lettres, dont le Juge prend connaissance.
    Alors voyons.
    A suivre...









  • LEGAL SITUATION - the steps after the fire

    Around 13 september 2012
    Right after the fire, investigation have been made by the police, showing that the fire started from the dam construction site, situated 500 meters below the farm.
    Workers were welding somethings and bushes started to burn. The workers tried to extinguish the fire before calling the firemen, and then it was too late, fire was uncontrollable.
    They wrote and signed a paper according to this.

    Around end september 2012
    A suit has been brought with the Yunus Emre farm’s lawyer, who can speak perfectly french and turkish (and english).
    At first our claim has been registered.
    Then we had to wait for the opposite side’s answers.
    There are three adverse sides:
    The workers;
    The compagnie for which they were working, Yildiz Elektrik;
    The compagnie above them, DSI, which employed Yildiz elektrik.

    End of february 2013
    The reply comes.
    The workers now say that they have extinguished the fire they caused.
    The Yildiz company says that the workers were not under its responsability and that the Yildiz company does not exist.
    The DSI company says that nothing is under its responsability.
    All of them say that we ask for too much money.

    The lawyer said that all that is nothing but normal.
    He replied with evidences showing that all none of the opposite answers can be taken seriously.
    It appears obvious that none of them is serious.... but lets see what the judge will conclude

    Next step : the Court.
    Everyone should be present, or at least represented by the lawyers.
    But according to the lawyer, in the court nothing really important happens.
    In Turkey everything happens before, people writing letters and replying and writing etc..
    And in the Court, the Judge will learn about this exchange only.
    Lets see.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DETAILS

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    FIRST STAGE : MY HOUSE (hard work)   + SUMMER KITCHEN
    The expenses are covered by the donations already :o)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MY HOUSE
    See images -

    RECONSTRUCTION PLAN - PREVISIONAL FINANCES - march 2013


    So that i might have a shelter as soon as possible, a « usta » (master in work) has been contacted and should take the hard work construction of my house.
    Only hard work, first for financial reasons, second because i also wish to add more personal decoration and for this friends will be invited, specially KYK team who is supporting and helping from the beginning.

    So the usta work will  consist in
     concrete basements, isolation from the soil with stones
     earth brick walls with earth and straw if possible, if not, ciment sand and lime.
     flat roof out of concrete, with inner isolation out of earth bricks
     doors and windows have been bought second hand, wonderful pieces of worked wood. The usta will build the wall accordingly.
     a small pond in front of the house will collect rain water and allow some water plant to live and bring some freshness.
     dry toilet will be inside the house. See drawing.
     bath room with a bathtub, and water goes into the garden, only ecological soaps are used.
     two large terrasses, one for mild and cold weather, facing south west, and the other one facing north east, will be for hot times. Plants like grapes, kiwis, will provide shade.. and fruits


    The work should start beginning of April and should last around 10 days.
    The expanses are covered by the donations already received.


    SUMMER KITCHEN

    Already started, it takes place using the carpentry and roof of Chandi. The tent will be removed, palets will be place on the floor, and walls will be covered with wood.
    A channel will be digged to avoid flooding.
    There is already a sink, and gaz cooker.
    Grey water is directed to the plants , bamboo, papyrus, willow tree, mint...
    The expanses are covered and work has started.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SECOND STAGE: SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM + FIXING DAMAGES 1 + FINISHING MY HOUSE
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM

    There will be two steps according to finances :

    First step: To have minimum electricity for the computer:
    Only ONE solar panel is needed, ONE accumulator, ONE charge controller.
    The 600W inverter is already in the farm and should be enough here.
    In the further steps, more elements will be added.

    Second step : allowing the drilling water pump to work so as to supply water to the trees.
    There a more powerful system will be needed (1kW)
    Around 10 m2 solar panels, a SECOND accumulator, a 2000W inverter, and all accessories like cable, posts etc..


    FIXING  DAMAGES 1

    WATERING SYSTEM

    Both water pumps have been untouched by the fire :o)
    Yet almost all pipe network has burnt and will have to be replaced.
    400 meters small droplet pipe + 100 meters large pipe « kangal » + some little material, vanes...

    DURGA’s ROOF

    It flew partially away during a winter storm.
    According to available money, we shall fix either the damaged part only, or recover the whole roof (which will have to be done at some point due to the fragileness of the roof and the strength of the winter storms)

    SARASWATI’s LEAKS

    Some burning particules having reached the roof, there will be some places to repair. And mostly the front of Saraswati will have to be arranged for it becomes flooded during storms.
    Material: wood, plastic, clothes..
    Most of all: creativity and some hand work to fix it all !

    FINISHING MY HOUSE

    We hope to be able to host in Autumn the KYK team who could teach us techniques of ecobuilding which we could as well apply to my house, realising nice coverings and decorations.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    AFTER WE MANAGE TO COMPLETE THESE FIRST STAGE WORKS AND SECOND STAGE OF FIXING, THE YUNUS EMRE FARM MIGHT BE ABLE TO HOST AGAIN SEMINARS, PROVIDED THAT PARTICIPANTS CAMP IN THEIR OWN PERSONAL TENTS;
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THIRD STAGE : LOTUS POND’s FIXING  + COMMON HOUSE ANAHAT 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    LOTUS POND’s FIXING

    Half of the geomembrane EPDM has burned, and the other half might be fixed, presenting only small holes caused by burning pieces.
    So the present idea is to make the pond smaller, arranging the earth all around it, including around ANAHAT house (which would be near the pond) and using the available geomembrane to cover the pond. Slopes would be smoother, dimensions would be more appropriate.
    The faisability is still under study. There would be mainly bulldozer work and fixing, manoeuvring the big membrane...

    COMMON HOUSE ANAHAT

    We were at this stage before the fire. So we shall soon come back to this stage, after completion of the previous steps.
    AnAhat house will provide shelter for seminars during hard weather, as well as offer home for residents, participants to seminars. It should be suitable for all weather, including extreme hot and extreme damp weather that we have here.

    The study has to be restarted from the beginning according to the new situation.
    The KYK team is supporting and guiding for this work, and hopefully will be able to come to guide a solidarity ecobuilding camp.
    Present idea is that ANAHAT house could be build around the ancient burned house.
    The ancient burned house would be transformed into a green house.
    Thus ANAHAT could be created around a nice green fresh place like a patio...
    Something like this...
    And of course cost will have to be define...
    Lets see..
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Do not hesitate to come again later in the year to learn about the updates and events planned like building camps....
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
