Help Rebuild All They Have Lost

Fire Has Destroyed Everything

Tobias and Esme Clarke are my uncle and auntie, and are parents to two beautiful children, Raphael and Zebadiah. They have recently returned to Australia after spending four years actively involved in missionary work within Rwanda, Africa. Tobias received a job offer in Tasmania and the family have relocated there to start their new chapter. They arrived in Tasmania today, and within the last 2 hours a fire erupted from their generator, destroying the shack they were staying in and exploding their car. All their means of support, both immediate and future have been lost. Tobias has received very serious burns to his hands and back which will have quite a severe impact for employment in the near future and won't be able to carry out the jobs he has been offered, and is currently being treated by paramedics before he gets airlifted to hospital. Thankfully, Esme and the children are okay, and have found a place to sleep for the night. We don't have any other information at the moment, as it has just happened, but PLEASE PLEASE, if there is anything that can be done, please help. Whether it is prayer, thoughts, support, finances - anything is better than nothing. These guys are a beautiful family full of life and love, and anything that can be given will be appreciated. There is a long journey ahead for this family, please give them your support.
