The Cause | Nazish Memorial Fund

They Need Us | Nazish Memorial Fund

On August 17th, 2011, Nazish Noorani, a 27-year-old mother of two was shot and killed in her hometown of Boonton, NJ while walking with her husband and three-year old son after a dinner in observance of the Holy Month of Ramadan. After days of investigation, law enforcement officials have charged her husband with the killing of this young woman, with the help of an accomplice.

But I’ll never lose hope in society or man.
