Help Ali and Nadia after the fire

Ali and Nadia Mohammad and other family members lost their home, their car and all their belongings after the massive Cambridge fire on the 3rd of December 2016. If you have ever interacted with Ali and Nadia, you know how kind and generous they both are. Now it is our turn to help them when they need it the most.

Nadia was actually home with their 5 month old baby Aidan, her brother Umar, and mother Naseema when a raging fire started across the street from their house at a house under construction. Umar was one of the first, if not the first to call 911 based on the fire report. The fire had spread within minutes bursting through the windows and into their house when Umar heroically guided his family out the back from the 2nd floor lifting his mother and nephew over one fence and breaking down another to get them to a side street and to safety since the whole street was engulfed in flames and smoke. After getting his family to safety, Umar went back with Ali to get another neighbor and her baby. 

The house is one of the most affected by the fire since it was so close to the source. It will be demolished shortly.
