Send Kiko & Maman Ake Home

My colleague and friend Kiko Nyomo lost his dear mother, Maman Ake W. Nyomo to stomach and ovarian cancer on July 21, 2017 in Seattle, WA. It has been a long and tough journey for her and her family: weekly chemotherapy, many hospital stays. Maman Ake fought very hard till the end, her last word was "Peace". Her dying wish was to be buried in her homeland, the Democratic Republic of Congo. The family needs help to raise money to have her shipped to Kinshasa for her burial. This is a very costly journey, including travel expenses for her and her son and daughter, plus funeral expenses.

Please help Maman Ake to achieve her final dream to return home. This would mean so much to her and her family. As a friend of Kiko, there is no one more deserving than him. He is a kind and humble soul, and has been constantly by his mother's side and supported her throughout this devastating illness to the end. I know he and his family will be eternally grateful for your generosity.
