We are raising money for a Somali family that has suddenly and tragically lost its matriarch.   A mother of five was hit and killed by a train.  She came to Louisville, KY ten years ago from Somalia. She  was a devoted wife and mother. She leaves behind five kids and a husband who works in a factory.  We are raising money for the funeral and for the family . She was proud to have become a US citizen. The Somali leadership has known the family for almost nine years, and can attest to their being very good people.  She is survived by her  three daughters and two sons. She had come from  Somalia to live a better life here in Louisville. No one could ever have forseen such a tragedy. May we unite to take care of her mourning family in their time of need.
