Howe Street, Ottawa Fire Victims

In the early morning hours of April 3rd, 2018, a tragic fire broke out at 2700 Howe Street in Ottawa.  A young couple, Bruce Murangira, Mandy Haaima and their 14 year son lost everything including 4 of their beloved family pets.  

Unfortunately, the family did not have insurance.  Please help this family to start over, every donation helps.

I started this gofundme because I also live in the neighbourhood and felt compelled to help.   I can't imagine the terrible personal and financial loss this family has experienced.  I met Bruce and Mandy later in the morning after the fire.  I am in contact with Bruce and Mandy as well as Mandy's sister Natasha.  The funds raised will go directly to Bruce and Mandy and will be used to assist them in starting over. They literally lost all their household and personal belongings.  Your donations big and small will help them restart.    Please share and donate whatever you can.  Thank you!
