Friends are uniting to help Amina Mohammed and her 4 children after the sudden death of their father. Please help them through this crisis.

Amina Mohammad and her four young children, Sharifa (10), Hamza (5), Nadiya (3) and Elijah (12 months) lost their father and husband, Shan, in a sudden car accident on August 30, 2012.

Shan was the family’s breadwinner and was the only driver in the family.

Amina is from Somalia where her near and extended family remain.

While Amina is an exceptionally strong woman and mother—she needs the support of the larger community at this time to help her through this extraordinary life altering event.

Support from the community has already helped the family:

  • Get a computer--this enables Amina to take an online course prepping her for the written portion of the GA State Driving Test.
  • Get car--a car has been generously donated to the family.  
  • Send the children to holiday camp

At this point we need to raise more money in order to:

  1. Get the car road ready (approx. $1000-$1500 for new tires and brake work)
  2. Get the car registered (approx. $350)
  3. Get driving lessons for Amina (approx. $300-$600)
  4. Continue to provide funds for educational opportunities for the family.

A contribution of any size will add a step to the bridge supporting Amina, Sharifa, Hamza, Nadiya, and Elijah from a time of crisis into a time of growth and independence.
