Devastating House Fire Destroys Everything

I'm a Wellbeing Officer at a local publicly funded primary school in Canley Heights in NSW, Australia, and this fundraiser is to support a family whose children attend the school. 

On Friday 27th November 2020 Rose and her two children, who attend this school, were victims of a devastating house fire which destroyed their home and devoured all their belongings.

Already battling with leukaemia this year, a house fire was the absolute worst possible thing that could happen to Rose. Because they weren't able to afford insurance, they won't be compensated for anything lost in the fire. So, not only is she trying to recover from the fire whilst raising two young children, she somehow needs to do this while battling a life threatening illness!

Her family really needs our help! 

Please don't just read this and ignore their need - this has been a year that would break the strongest of people, and as part of her community it's our responsibility to help them in their time of distress. 

Any money raised will go directly to her to help with the costs of recovering from the fire. That is, buying things like food , clothes, shoes, kitchen utensils and appliances, towels, bedding, mattresses, beds, furniture, washing machine, fridge etc. etc.
Money raised can also help with the costs of emotional support and counselling for Rose and her children, any additional medical expenses, and I'm certain there are many other expenses that currently are unforeseen.

Any amount you can give will be immensely appreciated. This family literally has nothing.

Please help.
