Newly moved family to Christchurch father and son both got injured
Indonesian Artist Zulfirman Syah, his son, and wife (Alta Sacra) just recently moved to Christchurch in January 2019. They were seeking a more peaceful, healthy lifestyle with their lovely young son. Both father and son were inside the mosque and were injured during the shooting. Zulfirman was in critical condition after having been shot many times and has complex injuries as a result. He has had several surgeries since he was admitted. His son's injuries are still being attended to, but they are minor by comparison. Thank God they are on their recovery way.
Redbase represents him, and has arrangements to present his artwork at the Annual Auckland Art Fair on the 1st of May in NZ. Just before the day of the shooting, he sent me a text with his new almost-finished artwork, which will show at the Auckland Art Fair. He also sent his confirmed flight from Christchurch to Auckland for his attendance at the event. His family was happy with their newly settled life in Christchurch and he had just started these latest paintings (a continuation of his 20 year career as a fine artist in Indonesia) to be able to support his family living NZ.
As founder as the foundation I just purchased his one remaining painting in Indonesia and wired the money to his wife for a little financial support. As his recovering journey will be long, I have set this up to help his wife and their family get the support they need for their future in Christchurch.
All of the money will go directly to Zulfirman and Alta's joint ASB account in New Zealand.
We are not expecting much, but a dollar from you will show that you care for this new immigrant family. However, if you can't I thank you for reading this story. Please give more love to your kids, family members, and friends... because life itself is such a beautiful thing.
I am NZ chinese has been living in INDONESIA for 7 years and I am the owner of Redbase Foundation base in Indonesia, we are represent Zulfirman’s art work in up coming Auckland Art Fair on 1st of May this year, recently the artist sold his art works to us for support his family living in New Zealand.
For the artist family going through difficult time now and later, all the money will transfer to his wife and publish clearly on the page.
Please also note that there is another page for the family that can be found here- https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/help-young-family-victimised-by-christchurch
Hi Allan On behalf of their family I would like to thank you so much for your generous help for them. Good news is both of them has been moved back their own home from hospital, the artist is on his way to recovering with daily nurse visit. They felt thankful for all the people helped them even without knowing their family. I wish you and your family have a peaceful year ahead and all the best. Nancy
