Many of us have heard about the tragic fire in East Toronto that took the lives of a young Mother’s 6 year old son Kai, mother Jana and friend Amanda. The young mother Arija is herself still in the hospital.
I cannot imagine how Arija feels losing the ones closest to her and her home. My family and I recently moved to Toronto. I see how the Toronto Latvian community and Latvians around the world have reacted, together as one large family responding to someone in need.
Let us continue to help, donate via the GoFundMe page, pray, give our support in this difficult time and during the road to recovery.
Let our thoughts and prayers be with Arija, her family and Amanda’s family and friends.
