Children critically wounded in the NYC hammer attack that killed their mother receive Christmas gifts and $220,000 in donations

Two young children from Brooklyn, who were severely injured in a hammer attack that tragically claimed the life of their mother, were able to find some joy during the holiday season thanks to the generosity of others. The community rallied together and donated gifts to the children, bringing some much-needed cheer to their lives. Additionally, a fundraiser was set up for the children, and the total amount raised has now exceeded $220,000.

In a heartwarming picture shared on Monday, Little Sophia and David, whose mother Zhou Zhou tragically lost her life in the August attack, stood beside a stack of Christmas presents they had received. The touching image was posted on a GoFundMe page created to support them during this difficult time.

A staff member from the nonprofit organization Parent Child Relationship Association expressed gratitude for the contribution in creating a magical holiday season for Sophia and David. The fundraising page was organized with the permission of the children’s father, Jing Hong Liu.

The post added, “Let’s raise a toast to a season that is brimming with love, gratitude, and the sheer delight of giving.”

According to the page, the fundraiser has surpassed its initial goal of $200,000, raising a remarkable $220,739 with the help of 3,000 generous contributors as of Monday.


The nonprofit group stated that the money would be utilized for essential medical care for the siblings. The remaining funds will be placed in a trust for their future needs.

Sophia and David were only 3 and 5 years old when the attack took place, and they were in critical condition when they were rescued from the apartment, according to the police.

After spending four months in the hospital, the siblings were discharged earlier in December. Currently, they are living in an AirBnb as temporary housing with their father, as stated on the GoFundMe page.

The organizers of the page posted a wishlist of potential Christmas presents for the family on December 19th. The list included toys, electric toothbrushes, and a rice cooker.

The nonprofit mentioned that the siblings were extremely thrilled when their gifts arrived. A photo captured the moment, showing Sophia and David posing with a radiant cat-shaped lamp, magnetic tiles, a stuffed animal, and various other presents.
