Help Nes & Lil rebuild their family home

Hi Everyone,

I am creating this Go Fund Me page with the hopes that we can help my brother Nestor, my sister-in-law Lillian, and my two nieces be able to relocate and rebuild a new home after losing nearly everything in a fire that took place on Thursday Dec. 17, 2020 in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, NY.  

The fire stemmed from an apartment above them and after FDNY successfully put the fire out some time later, the damage from this horrific incident left them and several other families displaced.  By the grace of God they made it out safely, but the home they worked so hard to build for themselves and their children was taken away from them. 

I know times are hard for many given the state of the world currently, but any little bit helps and would be greatly appreciated to help them get back on their feet. God bless and stay safe!
