This is Gio, he is a 3-year-old kid that just lost his father (Michael) around 2 weeks ago. Michael was an honest man, trying to do an honest living, that got murdered by his very own partner in Aceh. And what was the motive? Purely just because of money. The murderer killed Michael as he owed Michael some money, and wanted control over some of his land.
The murderer said that he wanted to pay Michael back, and asked to meet up. They met up in the murderer's house, where the murderer invited Michael to go to the forest to see some of the seedlings, related to their farm. Once they were in the forest, the murderer told him that he wanted to go pee in the bushes. Once Michael's back was on him, he cold-bloodedly murdered Michael using a chainsaw. His body was left in a swamp, and when the police found him, they can barely identify him as the corpse was already eaten by the wildlife.
I know Michael, because my dad had invested in some of his farm ventures, and that he was my coffee supplier. My parents went to his funeral earlier today, and what really breaks my heart is the way Gio (his son), reacted. People told him that his dad is already in heaven, and his reaction was "It's okay, we can pick him up later using a motorcycle. He's just out for work, he'll be back". He is very excited to see all the people around him at the funeral, and all the beautiful flowers. His pure innocence blankets him from the pain that he will face later in his life.
Now, Gio's mother is a single mother, and is of course struggling. Most of Michael's asset is in the form of lands and farms in Aceh, but no one dares to go there to claim it. I will personally help them with what I can, so that Gio can at least have a good education for his future. I am really not pressuring you, but if anyone wants to pitch in, do let me know. Even 100hkd would mean a lot for a time like this.
It really disgusts me to think that someone will actually cause all this pain, just for money. I really hope that Michael's story can be a quick reminder for all of us that family and friends comes first, not money.
