I think the worse natural disaster is fire. With typhoon, your house may get torn into pieces but at least you can still salvage some of it when the typhoon is over but when its caused by fire, you're literally toast. I feel so bad for my youngest sister who work so hard to have their house built but in just an instant, it was gone. Their neighbor's house got caught on a fire and it also burned down my sister's house. My sister's world came crumbling down but God is good, this kind of things happened for a reason. I told her that I'm still grateful that none of them got hurt. Unfortunately, their dog died few days later due to smoke inhalation .
The whole second floor of their house was the one that was burned, the appliances and furniture that they had there were burned. They definitely have to start over again.
80 percent of their household turned into ashes. They spent in the tents for few days until they can clean the main floor and salvage whatever was left in there.
In times like this, you will know the people that are willing to help you get through this tough times and she's lucky to have some friends who helped her get started.
I also started a gofundme campaign to help her defray the cost of rebuilding their home. I am so grateful for the generous donors that extended their hands to share their blessings. The construction have begun already and so far, this is the progress made. The construction was put to a halt because she ran out of budget .
This reminds me of the story my parents told us when their first home got burned by the fire. My brother and I were inside the house when it happened and they almost lost both of us. Mom said it was the most terrified she ever felt.
I would like to acknowledge and thank these generous friends who have donated to the gofundme campaign I set up for my sister. May God continue to bless you guys for your generosity.

They still need financial assistance so if you would like to donate, here is the gofundme link or you can directly send it to my paypal firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid the gofundme fees. If you use paypal, choose sending with family or friends so paypal won't charge a fee. Thanks again and God bless you for your kindness.
