Tarek's burial and family support

22650550_15014374680_r.jpegTarek was tragically killed this morning by a drunk driver while he was driving home from work. He is leaving behind his wife Neveen and child Alia as well as their unborn baby due next month. Tarek was the Sole Provider for his family and worked very hard since they moved to the US from Egypt last fall. This is an unbelievable tragedy. I'm asking everybody to help the family he left behind to raise money for burial expenses and to help Neveen while she gets through this time and gets on her feet. They are here in the US with no other family. Every donation big or small helps. Please pray for their family and share this on your page.

My name is Stephanie. I am born and raised here in California.  Neveen is my husband, Mohammed's first cousin.  Mohammed, Neveen and Tarek are from Egypt. Tarek and Neveen lived with us while they got on their feet when they first came to the US last fall.  We're raising funds for Neveen for any expenses she may have finalizing Tarek's affairs and then supporting herself, her daughter Alia and their unborn child due in a month. She may decide to fly home to be with family for the birth of their baby, but that is yet to be determined. My husband is with her and will make sure she receives any funds we raise. We will book flights for Neveen and Alia if need be and set up a bank account for her if she doesn't have access to the household accounts. Tarek used to take care of everything so we have to take everything one step at a time.
