Logan Central Multicultural Uniting Church has launched an appeal to support Ilai Maloloi and his family after a fire devastated their family home last week, destroying everything.
“Fire is the disaster that does not discriminate,” said Ilai, who is a Tongan elder at the church.
“No matter where we live or the age and condition of our homes, there is always the chance a fire could occur at any time and for any number of reasons.
“We are so blessed that everyone in the family is accounted for and we were all able to escape unharmed.
“We are going through a range of overpowering emotions, from frustration to anger to sadness right now.
“The fire has destroyed a lifetime of precious memories and irreplaceable possessions.”
