I am raising funds for someone whose story will touch your heart as it did mine. Aasif Khan was the last of four kids, born three months before the horrible cancer took his father. He was raised solely by his mother and his sisters, (kids themselves forced into being grownup) Without the support of a 2nd breadwinner, the mum had to work extra hard to take care of her kids. Life was not easy for them, they never had much and had to move into the grandmother house, which was and still is in dire need of renovation to bring it up to the liveable status!
Aasif is now 20 years old and and is trying to study via correspondence and work part time to pay for it. He has been giving the opportunity in the form of an air ticket to visit the holy Mecca in the name of his deceased father, it is a trip he cannot possibly afford and one he cannot possibly refuse. All he needs is a some things to get him there( he doesn't even have a suitcase! ) and some spending money while there. Needless to say, that your kindness and generosity will be repaid by a thousand blessing and thanks and a special prayer in the most blessed land.
