Mohammed Alhajali undertook a dangerous journey to flee war in Syria, only to meet death here in the UK, in his own home. He died in the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in West London on June 14th, along with other residents of the tower.

Mohammed was a Syrian refugee who came to the UK in 2014. He was a civil engineering student at West London University. His dream was to be able to go back home one day and rebuild Syria.

Mohammed's older brother Omar, who was with him in the flat, survived but lost Mohammed on the way out. Omar was rescued by the Fire Services while Mohammed went back upstairs. Mohammed was on the phone for two hours with a friend in Syria, waiting to be rescued.

He was trying to reach his family back in Syria but he could not get connected to them due to the situation there. He had not seen his family for four years. He was hoping to be rescued, but when the building fire reached his flat on the 14th floor, Mohammed bid his friend goodbye, saying that the fire had reached him. He asked his friend to pass on the message to his family.

I am a Director of the Syria Solidarity Campaign, based in the UK. As friends of his family and on behalf of the family, we are raising money for his funeral and any remaining funds will be donated to Mohammed's brother Omar and family. That way, his family in Syria can have a chance to say their last goodbyes.

Mohammed's younger brother Hashem Alhajali has been set up as the beneficiary of this fundraising campaign.
