Rachid Mellouki, 62, came to the UK from Morocco in 1998 where he worked in catering. In November, he tested positive for covid 19 (with diabetes,  obesity and sleep apnea as underlying health conditions). On 29 December, he was admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties and was immediately put on ventilation. His condition worsened and he died on 5th January 2021. 


Aminata lived in North London and passed away suddenly at the age of just 31 years old. She leaves behind a 3 year old son and a distraught husband. Aminata and her husband were on a low income and were not planning for their funerals at such young ages. Her father returned back from Sierra Leone and took lead in trying to arrange his daughters funeral however the family still require further support and have reached out to MBF requesting help.

We are appealing to everyone to help us pay for the funeral cost - £2,800 is needed to cover the remaining cost of both burials.
