Mother of 5 Struck in Pedestrian Crash, Requiring Admission to Hospital for Several More Weeks in Nashville - Help Needed!
Friends, I would like to ask your help in assisting a refugee family we have been mentoring to cover rent for a few months while the single mother recovers from a major accident and cannot work.
Nooria and her 5 children, ages 9-16, were resettled in Nashville in 2016 as refugees from Afghanistan via Pakistan. Their father was killed before they came here. We met them as a volunteer mentor family for Catholic Charities refugee resettlement.
Nooria worked for several weeks in hotel housekeeping in early 2017 before she was hit by a car as a pedestrian on her way home from work. She spent several weeks in the hospital and rehabilitation, and is still recovering from several broken bones and a head/neck injury that seriously limits her mobility.
The kids have been very happy in their schools here, expressing amazement that a bus comes to get them right at their apartment! It will be several months before their mother can work and we are hoping to help them keep their apartment and avoid further disruption.
Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
