Taiwo's Funeral Fund

Good day to you. 

December 3rd, 2017 was a dark day for us as a family. It was the day our dear brother Taiwo Aderemi Shabi passed in a New York hospital after bringing him from Nigeria for treatment. 

We as humans promised him to do everything to have him back on his feet. After long hours, days and weeks in the Intensive Unit, yet, God knows best and all we can do at this moment is to graciously submit to His will. This sudden loss has devastated the family and financially too.

We need to fulfill our second promise to him; having him buried in Badagry, Nigeria. 

We will rely on our friends and well wishers to help us in achieving this because of the cost of having his body flown back to Nigeria for burial; very extortionate. 

So, on behalf of our dear late brother, we are humbly asking for your help. The family would greatly appreciate your donations towards the funeral expenses.
