Shadi was working on-duty in Bourke street on the 9th November when he was stabbed in the neck from a terror attack. Shadi is receiving much support from his workplace and the City of Melbourne, but the family is doing it tough. Let's show our love and support for Shadi as his selfless and heroic acts has saved the lives of many. I have decided to add a few more notes based on some comments that have been made by some people who really have little understanding of the entire story as the media do like to sugarcoat.
Firstly, a bit about me. I am a friend of Shadi's and my brother is his employer. ALL proceeds from this fund will be going to Shadi and his family directly.
The footage in the media is far from the reality of what played out that day - and far too graphic for the public to view.
This is a very legitimate pledge for an innocent civilian who was attacked in the line of duty. You have a choice to help out - but please refrain from speculating when you have very little knowledge of the course of events that occurred in Bourke street on 9th November.
And a huge thank you to everyone who has donated thus far.
