We at Pioneer Valley Project, a non-profit organization based in Springfield, MA are standing with our friends and neighbors from the Somali Bantu community during this very difficult time. All funds raised will be used to pay for funeral expenses and any remianing funds will be given directly to the victims' family. Pioneer Valley Project is managing this campaign. Please donate if you can and share with others.
This morning, the three victims of yesterday's fire were identified as Aden Abdikadir, father, Ahmed Ahmed, 2 years old and Fatumo Ahmed, 1 year old. We continue to send our love and support to this family during this time of mourning. We have raised the goal of our campaign to $8,000. Please continue sharing and donate if you can. Thank you.
We are pleased to report that because of your support, we were able to cover the buriel costs for the two children who were lost in this tragic fire and also made a donation of approximately $1,000 directly to the widow. Thanks again for your love and support.
