The Story

On Tuesday, August 15, 2017, an explosion occurred at one of the homes in Golden Wheel Mobile Home Park. Two families were affected. One family lost a young girl (9yrs old) and an adult (62 years old). Another family lost their daughter (10 yrs old). They did not only lose their home, but also their loved ones.

The families are struggling to deal with this great loss. The pain is unimaginable! While we can’t ease the pain in the survivors’ hearts, we can unite to help them deal with the practical issues. They lost all their belongings, and now have no place to stay.

Keep all families in your prayers and please help support by donating. All the proceeds will be given to both families to help with the funeral services and other expenses.

The Vietnamese Voluntary Foundation (VIVO) created this fundraising page on behalf of both families in partnership with Friends of Hue Foundation,

Hello everyone,

We will end this fundraising page at the end of today. Along with offline donations and fundraising campaign from other community groups, we're expecting the fundraising amount will be more than $80,000. On the night of the candlelight vigil, a Real Estate businessman had offered a new mobile home to the victims' family whose house was burnt down. Which is an awesome news.

Nothing can replace the loved ones that these families had lost; however, we hope that our fundraising effort will help them cope better during this hard time.

We would like to thank all of you who participated in the fundraising effort. Please continue to keep these families in your prayers.
