Boy alone after mother, sister killed by lightning

A boy in Thanh Hoa Province is in need of help after his mother and sister were struck and killed by lightning.

 

Thanh by the family altar

Truong Van Thanh, 10, has no one left and his relatives are too poor to care for him properly. His father abandoned the family long ago.

His mother and sister were working in the fields when a thunder storm closed in, catching them in the open about a hundred metres from home when lightning struck them.

Thanh's mother, Truong Thi Be, tried her best to support her two children by working multiple jobs, a small rice field, collecting scrap and catching crab in a nearby river.

"She was so hard working," said Be's neighbour, Trinh Thi Thoi. "She worked almost all day long. I don't think I could have worked like her."

Thanh's future is unclear and, whenever asked about his mother and sister he looks up at the family altar and cries.

Trinh Thi Loan, secretary of Ve 1 Village said, "The situation is really difficult. Be was very hard-working and agreed to do many jobs as a casual worker. We gave her many priorities and preferential policies for the poor, but the local authorities can only help so much."
