    Hello community,

    I'm Wissam one of the Oneplus NA brand ambassadors. I'm writing this thread as our friend @Vansh99 and his family just lost their home in the recent Hurricane Ida that hit the New York area pretty bad.

    In 10min there was a flash flood that flooded their apartment up the the ceiling.

    They lost everything. The oneplus forum is a community, as a community we should support each others during hard times, that is why I'm asking everyone of you if you can participate (any amount counts) or share this fundraising effort to help Vansh and his family.

    I'm very thankful for your time, please help him and share this gofundme on twitter, insta, tiktok, telegram or wherever you feel like it, they need all the help we can get!

    Thank you to @Crystal Z. and @dsmonteiro for helping out :)

    I have been reading the comments, just haven't been capable of responding. Thank you for thinking of me, still trying to recover but keeping myself busy seems to be working temporarily (although I'm exhausted and I want to rest)

    Take care, my friend. I know the situation there must be a lot panicking than what we can imagine.
    Did you visit the place after the hurricane is over?

    I visited the next day, the pics you see are from a day after when the water went down. We broke in via a window because the doors were jammed. The electricity was on at the time of taking the pic, probably not the smartest idea but I had to get to the entrance door to shut off electricity as there were open wires around under water.
    I took out my clothes, they're all fine now. My kitchen slab and above is untouched so I recovered that. Electronics are all gone, my collection of OnePlus phones are missing haha. It stinks horribly in there now that it has all dried.

    Thank you

    That's a whole lot of damage. Though it's tough, you have to be calmer at this moment.

    At that moment what you did was right. And that's a reason why you & your family are safe.

    Take good care.

    All of my OP chargers have died but this one (and the cable attached to it) survived somehow 🥳
