Support Needed for funeral Services of Chernet's

Donation protected
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Chernet Mekonnen on February 2, 2024, a cherished friend and community member who moved from Ethiopia to the US four years ago, seeking a new beginning. Alone in a foreign land, Cherenet faced life's challenges bravely until a silent struggle led to his untimely departure through suicide. Today, we reach out for your compassion and support. As friends of Cherenet, we have initiated this GoFundMe to cover his funeral expenses, ensuring he is honored with the dignity he deserves. His family, far away in Ethiopia, cannot bear these costs, and in this moment of profound sadness, we turn to our community and kind-hearted individuals to help us provide a respectful farewell. Your generosity, no matter the amount, signifies a beacon of hope and solidarity, helping us celebrate Chernet’s life and the light he shared with us all.
This is a heartfelt appeal to anyone moved by Chernet’s story or who understands the impact of loss and the importance of community support. Your donation will directly fund Chernet’s funeral service, allowing us to remember him in a manner that reflects the love and respect we hold. In these challenging times, let’s come together to show that no one is ever truly alone. We thank you for any contribution, share, or prayer offered in honor of Chernet’s memory, as we aim to give him a peaceful and dignified send-off.
