Ibiyemi Orimoloye's Funeral

We came to Montreal looking for a better life than what we had in our native country. We were blessed with two kids, Samuel (5 years) and Marvelous (2 years), and expecting a third child when my wife, Faith Ibiyemi (38 years), suddenly passed away on 31st December 2017, two hours before the new year. The doctor said the cause of the death is pulmonary embolism due to a deep-vein blood clot that may rarely happen to some pregnant women. Faith’s body is still in the Hopital du Sacre-Coeur de Montreal (HSCM), waiting to be buried because unfortunately I have not been able to arrange for her burial as I do not have the necessary money to pay for it. Since I finished my masters from Concordia University, I have been providing to my family through a manual job until we obtain our permanent residency papers and I find a professional job as a mechanical engineer. I have been trying to give my wife a dignifying burial by knocking various doors for help but unfortunately was left with no choice but asking for your support as the last resort. We have no family members or relatives here and the last two weeks have been extremely difficult. Every minute I pray that I can bury my wife so that I can give more attention to other life requirements specially looking after our two kids. It is devastating when our children ask me when their mother is coming back. Burying my wife after being more than two weeks in a hospital fridge is the last honor I wish to give her. I have asked many funeral homes and was given very high prices minimum of which was around 15,000$. Therefore, I extend this call to you asking that you help me in this difficult time.

Thank you.
