Father of 3 dies in beach accident

Today was one of the hardest days of my life as I said goodbye to my dearest uncle and father figure of mine, Nhan (33), who passed away from a tragic swimming accident at MM Beach, Port Kembla. He was a very hardworking man and caring husband to my Aunty, Linda (32), as well as a loving and amazing father to my cousins, Emily (4) and twins Edward (2) and Ryan (2).

As a result of this tragic accident, I have set up this GoFundMe page to help support my young cousins during this difficult time, as well as spread awareness regarding the importance of swimming in patrolled beaches. Half of these funds will go towards Surf Life Saving NSW in an effort to reduce the number of drownings at our beaches.

Any funds received will be greatly appreciated, however if you unable to make a donation, sharing this page will be more than enough. Thank you for kind support.

Yours sincerely,
His beloved niece, April.
