We lost him on Friday April 2nd 2021 to COVID. Maqsood, 53 years-old, left behind 5 dependants including his wife, 3 daughters and his 5 year-old son. He was the sole breadwinner of his family whose business took a hit with the onset of COVID. Maqsood began driving Uber during the pandemic so the family does not presently have any income coming in. He was in the process of starting up a new business however, he passed away before he was able to get this started. The family barely has any savings and are in financial debt. He always did his best to make ends meet and worked really hard to care for his family. We request your generosity in keeping Maqsood's dedication to his family extended by helping to support his family during this trying time.
I am Maqsood's niece starting this page on behalf of his family. His wife and children are devastated with this tragic, sudden loss and are still processing the event. Unfortunately, Maqsood died in Pakistan where he was visiting for an emergency, far away from his family in Ontario, Canada. Shock, sadness, and grief envelop them. They were not able to attend the funeral so their father has been buried without their presence. The family is in need of financial assistance to cover funeral costs, housing payments, bills and others costs of living until they can set up a long-term plan to support themselves. No one in the household is presently working and elder daughters are completing post-secondary school or recently graduated and do not have a stable income. The third daughter is presently in grade 9 (15 years-old). We appreciate your support during their needy time.
All funds collected will be deposited into a bank account especially set up for fundraising. They will then be transferred to Maqsood's wife as needed.
Please keep Maqsood and his beloved family in your prayers. We ask for mercy, forgiveness and paradise for Maqsood. We pray for the family to be granted patience as they mourn this loss and navigate their lives without him.
