Lost our home due to a crazy. Seeking some help

On September 1, 2019, the day before I resumed college in the UK, and before my siblings back home resumed secondary school I received a phone call from my family members in Jamaica, informing me that my mother's 7 bedroom house that my great grandmother's sister had purchased in 1989 and gifted to her, had been burnt to the ground. Everyone tried his best to extract whatever they could but due to the severity of the raging fire and the smoke, they didn't retrieve much. The seven persons who were present were between the ages of 1 - 46. Within 5 to 10 minutes, everything was burned to a pile of ashes. The family car was destroyed and nothing could be done to save the remaining things. They looked on and wept as all of their belongings perished. There were items in the house dating from the 1970s that had no monetary value but were sentimental. Those items are irreplaceable.

The items that were lost as a result of the fire are:
Documentation & school documents

Passports and visas

Birth Certificates & personal belongings

School uniforms & clothes

Wedding albums & family photo albums

All personal effects

One car

The house consisted of:
5 bedrooms & 2 master bedrooms, all fully furnished
2 bathrooms
2 large verandahs

Ages of the victims:

Due to the documents that were burnt, the children were forced to resume school a week late than scheduled. So far, we haven't heard of the cause of the fire and are still awaiting the report from the fire department. We'd like to ascertain whether it was the work of arsonists or an electrical fault.

Damages are estimated at about 15million  JMD which is equivalent to £90,000($100k USD). We're thanking God that no lives were lost, however, all that they now own are their clothes on their backs. They now have no option but to rebuild their lives step by step.

I'm asking everyone to kindly to donate whatever you can so that we can get back to normalcy. We're grateful for any form of donations.
