This is the translation of the video of what happened.

Fate struck late last night. Shortcut is probably the cause of the fire. Roozendaal discovered the fire herself. Her first concern was saving her animals. "I ran to and fro, tried to get all the cats out, I didn't get any of my personal stuff, I'm now wearing borrowed clothes. Everthing, absolutely everything is gone. The only thing I did was getting the cats outside, I didn't want them to get burnt there..." It's a miracle that all 150 cats survived the fire blaze. They are now in boxes and cages on the premises. They're animals that won't be taken in by anyone else. "For the larger part they are shy cats, they come here from all over Holland e.g. because they can't be placed in animal shelters or anywhere else anymore. I have a department with cats that have aids and one with leukemia, so they are all cats that nobody wants." The firemen couldn't do much last night, this morning they were still putting out rests of the fire. Roozendaal wonders what to do next. "I don't have electricity, no gaz, no water, absolutely nothing, so we need aggregates to get warm, and we need water, bottles of water, and blankets, and money of course, because the aggregates will cost a lot of money and everything, everything... I don't know anymore, I'm at my wits end." During the fire asbestos disengaged, which has big consequences for the sanctuary. "The premises has to get a declaration that it's clean, so this will last for weeks and weeks, and I can't live on aggregates for weeks on end, so... well... I don't fully realize everything yet. The only thing I do realize is that I haven't retrieved all the cats yet, that I do realize and that eats me up...""
HERE IS THE INFO ABOUT PAYPAL
To Those who wish to help out Lenicka's Cat Sanctuary using Paypal:
Since there is not a Paypal Donate button on the website page of the sanctuary, I called and spoke to PayPal Customer Service about how to do it. And they told me that as long as I have an email address for the sanctuary and a personal PayPal account myself, there is no problem to send funds to her. When she gets the notice that funds are there, she can enter her bank information at that end and transfer the money to the Sanctuary account.
If you live in the USA and have a personal Paypal account, here are the instructions for sending funds to her kitties.
GO TO YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT AND CHOOSE THE "SEND MONEY" BUTTON. Once you do that, you will be given a page that has a place for you to enter an email and an amount you wish to give. Below those spaces are TWO tabs, one says "Purchase" and one says "Personal". MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE ONE MARKED "PERSONAL". That is important!!!! If you do not choose the personal option, and then check the "gift" option, they will charge an exchange rate for the funds. But if you do SEND IT AS A PERSONAL GIFT, they will only charge you a few cents to send it. (they charged me ten cents and the sanctuary will get the full donation without exchange fees).
The email address for her Cat Sanctuary, STICHTING KATTENBOS is: firstname.lastname@example.org
