Deceased Repatriation of Amadou Ka

We are deeply saddened to inform you that a Senegalese man, named Amadou Ka, passed away Monday, July 17, 2017. Amadou Ka was 44 years old.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner who investigated the death of Amadou Ka notified Mame Mbaye (Senegalese Consulate) yesterday (9/11/2017).

Apparently since his death (attributed to natural causes) in a parking lot in Van Nuys on July 17, 2017, they were trying to identify the decedent.

Mara Diakhate, who knows Amadou has notified the family in Senegal this morning. The family wants the body to be sent home.

As you may all know, the cost to repatriate the body is about $10,000. Your donation, no matter how small the amount may be, will make a big difference, and will help raise $10,000 to cover the cost of the deceased repatriation. Please let's help for God's sake.
