Dear Donors;

We have successfully raised the needed money. We thank everyone who has been part of this cause - giving the beloved Mr. Assefa Chabo proper funeral service here in Dallas, TX, and a burial service in Ethiopia at a town where he was born. We thought he would love that....and the family agreed.

After covering all expenses the remaining fund will be given to his son to cover the family's cost back home. As we have updated before, Alemayehu Assefa, will accompany his father's body to Ethiopia. We will post the detail expense report soon.

"Lewgen Derash Wegen Naw". Indeed.

Thank you.

Mr. Assefa Chabo’s funeral service will take place in Ethiopia the week of May 1, 2017. This has been decided after consulting with family and close friends. The Task Force created to coordinate the funeral and burial services has increased the fund to $20,000 considering the additional expenses to process the logistic along with the flight expenses for Mr. Assefa’s son, Alemayehu Assefa, who will accompany the body to Ethiopia. Any amount left from all expenses will be sent to the family back in Ethiopia to cover their costs. Church service for Mr. Assefa will take place in Dallas, TX, at Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Debre Meheret St. Michael Cathedral located at 1106 N. Jupiter Rd, Garland, TX 75042, on Saturday, April 29, from 11 am to 1 pm. Please call our office at 214 321 9992 for further information.

Thanks
