Fighting for Claudia Quaatey

Donation protected
On May 10th, our beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, and friend, Claudia Naa Oyo Quaatey was shot in the head during a shooting near an elementary school playground. Claudia was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Claudia suffered a severe brain injury and was placed on life support. Claudia fought for her life with her loved ones by her side, hoping and praying for a miracle.  Claudia unfortunately succumbed to her injury.  The family is now tasked with laying Claudia to rest and remains steadfast in their fight for finding justice for Claudia.  Claudia was a sophomore at Queens High School of Teaching and a loved member of the Jamaica Queens Community. In her free time, Claudia enjoyed running track, dancing, styling hair, and spending time with family and friends. She was an aspiring nurse and was always compassionate towards others. Claudia was always the first to offer help whenever needed. If Claudia’s story or graceful presence has left an indelible mark on your life we ask that you please continue to offer your thoughts and prayers to her family and friends during this most difficult of times. Our fundraising goal of $30,000 will go towards expenses incurred related to this tragedy. We please ask that you support Claudia and help this GoFundMe reach as many people as possible. If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Crime Stoppers at 800 577-TIPSTHANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS, LOVE, AND SUPPORT!
