Honoring Dujon

Raised by 1,150 people in 13 days
A couple weeks ago, when we were fixing up the Garden at the Haile Selassie high school, Sebrena (mother of) and Dujon came to the school to help. They didn’t ask for any money, though not having a lot of money themselves.
Now our help is needed to pay for funeral costs. After a horrific attack Dujon was caught a bullet to the head, surgeons did what they could to save him, but the decision was made switch of the life support machine. Dujon was so young & an amazing footballer. But now because of senseless violence he isn’t with us anymore. I took this picture of him in the Garden of Selassie’s school, because I thought he favoured a man I’d photographed in Somalia. I asked him to smile, he said there isn’t anything to smile about round here. It’s almost like he knew...
During the attack which was one of mistaken identity, his mother, uncle and Auntie were also shot. All have received surgery, so they now have bills they can’t afford & can't work. This is what happened, some murderers were looking for a man, thought they saw him sitting on the wall outside Dujon’s house, so they started firing after him, he ran into the house, Dujon tried to follow so he could escape the bullets and was struck on the way into his house, the murderers then went into his house and shot up the place. Realising they had got the wrong guy they left and now we are left with all this trauma. His family are heartbroken, as am I. He was so good at football, the best schools wanted to give him full scholarships in September, when he would’ve started going to high school. Now he will never get the chance. He was just 12 years old. Thank you for you support, donate what you can, the money will be used for funeral costs and to support his family. All money will go to his mother.

I Katherine, am solely responsible for the donations received in this campaign by all of you on behalf of Dujon. I will be making the withdrawals on this account and personally ensuring that Sebrena (Dujon’s beautiful mother) receives all of it via PayPal. Thank you all, now we can properly honor Dujons amazing life!39845968_1560210581865844_r.jpeg
