Melki Family Fire Tragedy

On July 12th, 2018 - Barrhaven/Nepean, Ontario  -  Mike and Nancy's townhouse incurred devastating and 2nd alarm fire. They managed to escape with their 4 young kids (ages, 16, 14, 12 and 10),  but the family lost 4 cats and have lost all of their possessions with the exception of the clothing on their backs.  At the time of the fire, they did not have insurance. 

We have started this GoFundMe Page to raise money for the family to rebuild their lives and get back on their feet again.  Everyone in the family is safe, however, they are in shock and the children are saddened by the loss of their cherished pets. 

We would like to raise $25, 000, which is why this GoFundMe page has been created. We'd like to help them with covering the costs, of clothing, furniture and household amenities. 

If you could support our GoFundMe by making a donation and then sharing it with your network, we would greatly appreciate it. We know that money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps us get closer to our goal!
