Supporting Mahtab and Sabeeha

Dear Friends of Mahtab Shihab and Sabeeha Jannat,

We are writing to inform you of the devastating news that Mahtab and Sabeeha’s father, Mohammed Jafor, passed away on Wednesday, April 1st from complications due to Covid-19. Mahtab and Sabeeha also have an older brother, Mahbub Robin, and a stepmother, Shokina Eti. As many of you know, Mahtab and Sabeeha’s mother died in 2016.

Mahtab and Sabeeha are safe in their apartment with close family. But these are extraordinary circumstances. Mohammed Jafor was the primary income-earner for his family. Expenses for Mahtab’s family in the immediate future include rent, groceries, and other living expenses. We understand that these are hard times for everyone, but many of you have reached out already asking how to help. We've put together this GoFundMe to raise money that will aid the family in the turbulent upcoming months. Additionally, we're currently working to set up a trust for Sabeeha's long term needs. All your support is deeply appreciated.

Friends of Mahtab
