    Story

    If I could take a moment to share a story to you about a man.

    The conflict in Kashmir had recently got worse, while many tried to flee this man saw some girls crying because they had been abandoned by their school bus driver. In the goodness of his heart he said he couldn't leave these girls and decided to drive them home, as he got out the car he was hit by an explosion from a gun. He lost his life helping others.

    I couldn't be more proud that his last actions were pure and innocent. This man was my dad's baby brother, a father, an uncle and a father in law. Nothing will ever change that he was taken from us due to unnecessary blood shed between two countries over land. I ask you all to keep him in your prayers and his family. In light of the fact he was a retired school teacher we have set up this fundraising page in honour of him and that he may reap rewards in the after life.

    His wife and children have specially chosen a women's refuge in Pakistan for the money to be donated too and also to help educate the poor. I hope you will all find it in your hearts to help fulfil their wishes.

    We would also like these rewards to go towards others who have passed away and don't have anyone to pray, or contribute towards charity on behalf of them.

    Selected charities:

    Women's Refuge (Mukhtar Mai) - http://www.mukhtarmai.org/
    Educating Orphans (Kort) - http://kort.org.uk/

    Thank you.
