on behalf of Mohammad Abolghasem
 RICHMOND, CA
On January 16th, 2017, Aky, Mohammad and their family were victims of a devastating house fire.  Aky & Mohammad are the owners of the beloved Akys Café in downtown Point Richmond, CA.

Thankfully, the family is safe and uninjured, but they lost nearly everything in the fire, including beloved pets.  Many items cannot be replaced and they are literally starting from scratch with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  

Please help us raise funds to allow them to get their life and belongings back together ASAP.  They are amazing individuals and have brought many great things to this community and the people in it! Every little bit helps. Lets get them back on their feet as soon as possible.  Please share this GoFundMe page with your contacts.

A little about me (required by Go Fund Me):
I am Nikki Villa Trivers, Aky & Mohommed are dear friends of ours and fellow business owner in Point Richmond, Ca, where we all live.  The funds will be used to secure a new living location and accommodations, clothing and necessities for the 4 family members.  They will be receiving the funds directly.

A thank you from Aky & Mohmamed...
The Abolghasem family wants to thank the many contributors to their GoFundMe fire relief campaign. Aky is with tears of gratitude and Mohammad says that they are so moved by the loving support of so many. He says no where on earth could you find such a thing … Especially now with an attempt by dark forces to divide peoples … here is an American town supporting this Persian family.

It is truly beautiful to behold.

Slowly, they are thanking those whose contact information they can find, but their are many whom they do not know how to reach. Their hearts are filled with gratitude and they thank you all for standing by their side.
The family must move from their temporary shelter at the end of February. They are looking for a short time lease. We ask if any of you know of a place to rent in Point Richmond for a family of 4, please let them know.

Aky's Cafe, Thank you.
