Organized by: Leah Hashinger

THE STORY:

Kam Za Cin and his wife Cing Lun moved to Nashville in 2012 after fleeing persecution in their native country of Myanmar. Last December, Kam's friends, fellow refugees from Myanmar, asked him to drive their young daughter to one of her first doctor's appointments in the U.S. On the way to the appointment, Kam got into a terrible car accident resulting in his friend's death and Kam's arrest on charges of vehicular homicide.

Kam has been in jail over a month as his family cannot afford to pay his bail. After spending over $20,000, mostly donated from members of the Burmese community, on legal fees, Kam's wife cannot afford to pay rent. Since she's caring for their two young girls, Mary and Rita, she's unable to work.

Any money donated to Kam, Cing, Mary, and Rita will help the family pay for the next few months of rent while they figure out a more sustainable solution.
