My name is Kennedy Okomo. I am a Kenyan in Atlanta, Georgia and I just graduated from Kennesaw State University.

I was delighted to have the company of my father Eli Okomo, 69 and my mother who had flown from Kenya to Atlanta, Georgia to attend my graduation.

Since they arrived in the country three weeks ago, we have spent time catching up on the last three years we’ve been apart.

It was a double celebration for me as my wife and I had just welcomed our new born baby five months ago. They were overjoyed to meet our new addition.

Heartbreakingly, on Thursday (May 25th) my dad suffered a heart attack and died while being rushed to the hospital.

Our family requires your assistance in raising the $20,000 (Sh2.06 million) require to pay for the morgue fees and for taking the body back home in Kenya. We greatly appreciate any contribution you are able to make.
