Today, we need your help for the family of a security guard who is now paralyzed after being shot while on duty.  Ahmad Mahir Amiri, a young Afghan man, brought his family to Dallas, TX to start a new life. 

Sadly, in December of 2018, Amiri was shot after confronting a man during a burglary and was left to die.  As he fought for his life, he was rendered paralyzed from the neck down. He currently is at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, TX, where he is in critical condition and awaits a possibility of moving to a nursing home.

His wife, Zahra Amiri, is now left alone to take care of their three young children, ages 8, 5 and 2.  Also, the oldest daughter has a severe disability that requires the mother to stay home and take care of her.  

His wife doesn't speak any English and also has no other family to come help her here or back home. The husband's parents are currently in Afghanistan and want to come to see their son and help with the children, but their emergency visa has been denied because of the new immigration laws.  

The family has no way to pay their rent,  pay for food or even have someone to drive them places, including to the hospital to see their father.  The money is needed to help get this family on their feet and let them focus on trying to get their father the help and care he needs.

Also, along with your donations, if any one knows if any attorneys that specialize in disability and immigration cases, it would be greatly appreciated.  They need help to get disability for the father and someone to help on the immigration front to allow the grandparents to arrive in the country to see their son.

Every little bit helps and goes a long way.  Please donate and then share this with your community and help spread the word. Let us heal this family in their time of sorrow and let them focus on their family without having to worry about the other stuff.  God Bless!
