Just like any other day, on January 2, 2019 Raj Kumar woke up his adorable little 3-year old daughter Navira, kissed her forehead and got her ready for pre-school. He waved Dharani, his wife a sweet good bye before heading off to work. Little did they know that it would be their final good bye.  Within few minutes, this family's happiness was shattered by the news of Raj Kumar's fatal accident in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Navira's cute giggles and peek-a-boos were cherished as one whole family by Raj Kumar and Dharani. Their family was a bright light for the entire South-Asian community in and around Hillsboro. Raj Kumar's sudden passing will not only be a loss for the community, but more importantly to Navira, for she will dearly miss her father's ever present glow around her.

Although, we as a community may not be able to fulfill Raj Kumar's hopes and dreams for Navira, together we hope to be stepping stones in Navira's future. 

Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts for your generous gesture.

Thank you very much for your overwhelming response and generous support for this great cause. We would like to be transparent on the distribution of the funds generated so far. Current goals for the collected fund: Short Term:1. Transportation of Raj's mortal remains to India, 2. To cover all the expenses of the final rites to take place in India, 3. To cover all the incidental and sustaining short term expenses for Raj's elderly parents, his wife Dharani and his daughter Navira, Long Term: 4. The remaining funds will be used for establishing an educational fund for Navira. This is something Raj would have done flawlessly. Hope you can join hands once again to continue helping with this monumental task. It takes a village to raise a child, in this case literally it has come true! Thank you!

Thank you so much for your sustained generous support so far. Please continue to keep the momentum up!

Just to keep everyone in the loop:

There has been some progress in sending over Raj's remains to India, to be received by Raj and Dharani's family.

Dharani and Naveera are also preparing to leave to India along with a few of Raj's close friends and family members for support during the travel.
