Those who were recently made homeless after their 4-bedroom house was gutted by fire opposite the police depot near the Supermarket in the Pipeline Community of Paynesville have appealed for help.

The head of the fire victims, Stephen Peters, made the appeal on Sunday, April 25, when he spoke to the Daily Observer at his temporary residence in the Pipeline Community.

Mr. Peters said those made homeless by the fire disaster are striving to rebuild their lives and home, but are out of money and building materials, as well as funds to pay whoever they will hire to do the work.

The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) has initially provided them mats, bedspreads and pieces of lappas, with two individuals giving each of the affected persons some assistance, Mr. Peters said.

The victims are grateful for the items received, but Peters pointed out however, that the donations were not sufficient to rebuild their devastated home to accommodate their families and dependents.

He used the interview to appeal to the LNRCS, humanitarian organizations, persons of goodwill, as well as the Legislative Caucus of Montserrado County and other caucuses, to help them obtain building materials to facilitate the rebuilding of their home.

He said up to present, the victims have not established what caused the fire.

He said anyone willing to assist the victims should contact them on the following cell numbers: 0886638499 and 0776268375.
