Helping a family keep their dream home

Shahidul Islam (36) who was preparing to fulfil his Australian dream of moving into his new home this weekend, has commenced his journey for the eternal world.

Shahid, a loving father and a husband lost his life in a fatal road crash at Bald Hills around midnight on Wednesday 16 October 2019. He was travelling from his newly built home from Griffin, North of Brisbane to his family. He was cleaning the new home to get the delivery of some household appliances on Wednesday and move in over the weekend.

The accident was caused by a stolen car travelling north bound in the south bound lane on the Gympie Arterial running into innocent Shahid’s car. Paramedics confirmed that Shahid lost his life on the spot.

Shahid has been living in Australia and been calling Brisbane home for almost 10 years now. He’s a very polite and humble person, who worked hard to fulfil his Australian dream of building his home and raising his kids in this beautiful country.

Unfortunately, he left this world before he could spend a night in his new home. He’s a left his wife and son with a huge mortgage and many more uncertainties.

The wider Brisbane communities have been heavily impacted by this tragic incident. But they have come together and shown great support towards the deceased’s family. Neighbours of his new house at Griffin have left flowers and toys for little Saahir (4 years old). The messages have touched the wife and helping her to get stronger.

As friends and community members we’re reaching out to you all to help them worry about one less thing. We would like to request everyone to support them to help pay off their mortgage.

We cannot change what has happened to this young family but we can certainly make it slightly easier for them.

Together we can make it happen!
