Daniel Groshong died in a tragic accident in East Timor on 12 August 2017 when the car he was riding in was crushed by a falling tree in a rainstorm. Dan was on his way from the capital of Dili to a remote village in Timor’s coffee growing region to work with a coffee cooperative that Dan’s Hummingfish Foundation was helping.

This gofundme is to help support Dan’s family – wife Menzi, 15 year old son Agos, and 12 year old daughter Anna May, who live in Hong Kong. Since 2010 Dan dedicated his life, and a great part of his income, to his non-profit Hummingfish Foundation, which is devoted to helping communities develop sustainable businesses.
Dan’s sudden death left his family with very limited resources, and this fund will give the family stability as they transition to a life without Dan. Menzi currently works two jobs, so it will be a challenge for her to supplement the family’s income to cover expenses for rent, school fees, and living. Any funds above the goal will go toward the family’s future living and education expenses.
