A family from Twickenham are fundraising to build a mosque in honour of their 58-year-old relative who passed away from COVID-19.

Rena Kamaly died sadly on February 13, 2021.

She left behind a big family – the eldest sister of six siblings, a mother of six children and a grandmother of 16.

Now, her relatives are coming together to raise money for a mosque in Jogonathpur, Bangladesh in Rena’s name.

Her niece, Tasnya Chowdhury, said: “She had a heart of gold and would always put others first especially when it came to her family.

“Those who know her would agree she was well known for her hospitality and the delicious food she would cook.

“With your donations and duas (prayers) we can ensure there is always a memory of her in the village as well as providing a mosque for everyone to pray in and food for the poor and needy.”

The family are already halfway to their target but need more help reaching £5000.

Tasnya added: “We’re asking for any small amount you are able to give. If 1000 people give £5 we will reach our target.

“Please reach into your hearts and help us to do so.”
