Support for Jafaar's Family

On Sunday, 10-year-old Jafaar Shbeb was struck and killed by an SUV at the intersection of 162nd and Burnside. He leaves behind a single mother and two little sisters. Jafaar and his family were refugees of the Iraq War and arrived in Portland in 2014. His mother is a hotel housekeeper and works hard to support her family. This loss has dealt a devastating blow to a family that has already suffered and lost so much, and to the closeknit community of Iraqi refugees that lives in East Portland. Please consider donating anything you can to support Jafaar's mother, so that she can take time off of work to grieve and be with her daughters.
