Bring Kwaku Home to Ghana

Kwaku "Bismark" Brown died suddenly this week while working at Hecla Greens Creek Mine in Juneau, Alaska. It was a loss that no one was prepared for, especially his family, his daughter Esi and his wife Sharon. 
The funeral home has estimated that it will cost between $10,000 to $15,000 to fly Kwaku back home to Ghana from Alaska. Sharon and Esi will be traveling with him and we are trying to raise $6,000 for airfare, lodging, food and other costs associated with such a long and difficult journey.  
Any amount of contribution you are able to make to this campaign is deeply appreciated and will help ease the burden of these costs on the family. 
Sharon has requested that you please say prayers for her, Esi and Kwaku's family in Alaska and in Ghana and reminds us to hold each other close, as we never know what will happen tomorrow. 
Thank you and love to all.
