Support Ahmed Omar's wife and two daughters

Let's stand together to honor Ahmed Omar's legacy and support his wife and two daughters, aged 6 and 4.

We come together today with heavy hearts to remember the life of Ahmed Omar, the beloved owner of Kismayo Kitchen, who left us all too soon at age 35. Tragically, on August 12th, Omar's unexpected passing left behind his beloved wife Anisa Mohamed and their two young daughters, aged 6 and 4. As Anisa grapples with the sudden loss of her partner and the father of her children, we are reminded of the profound impact one individual can have on the lives of so many. At this moment, it becomes our shared responsibility as a community to extend our gratitude and financial support by offering assistance to his grieving family.

Omar's journey to Vermont as a refugee was a testament to his unwavering determination and strength. He embraced his American dream with open arms, becoming the proud owner of a local restaurant that quickly became an attractive place for our Burlington community. Through Kismayo Kitchen, he didn't just serve delicious food; he served kindness, compassion, and a sense of unity that touched countless lives. Omar's radiant smile and zest for life left an indelible mark on all of us. His restaurant wasn't just a place to dine; it was a place to connect, share stories, and feel a part of something larger than ourselves.

Our goal is to ease the financial burden that often accompanies such a loss. The funds raised will help provide vital support to Omar’s family during this challenging period. By contributing, you’re honoring Omar’s memory and helping those left behind to carry on their journey. Join us in making a difference – whether through a small donation or a more substantial contribution. Every act of kindness counts, and together, we can demonstrate the strength of our community as we stand beside Omar's family.

Thank you for being a part of this journey, honoring Omar's memory, and spreading the love he shared with us all.
