Dear Friends, 

Several years ago, when we met Aman & Arooj and their family, we learned of their harrowing story of fleeing death due to religious persecution in Pakistan. They came into our lives and have become close family friends of ours.  

Aman was a bank executive in Paskistan and since coming to the US, immediately applied for assylum and has obtained a work visa which has allowed him to work 3 jobs, 7 days a week.
Unfortunately, all of his jobs are low paying and they have barely been able to make ends meet.

Two weeks ago, he suffered a heart attack from a blocked artery that required a stent to open it up. Although he recovered, he will now be on medication for the rest of his life and cannot continue to work 7 days a week. He simply cannot do it and likely stay alive. Making ends meet was stressful enough before his heart attack so, needless to say, this is a major emotional blow to him and his family and a big blow to his earning potential.   

As you can see from this picture, their adorable children are very young - 2, 5, 9.  He and Arooj have totally revamped their diet to help him be healthier.  Aman is a tremendously hard worker (evidenced by his 3 jobs working 7 days a week) and will do whatever he can to provide for his family.

We are ​​working to help find a better job for him that is commensurate with his education and experience as an executive bank trainer in Pakistan. Until he can find a job that will really provide for his family, the situation is stressful and financially dire, with financial stress mounting.  

At this point his entire paycheck only covers their rent and a few grocery bills.  They have not yet recieved their hospital bills, but we know they will cause even more stress and financial burden.  
Could you help consider relieving their financial burden. 

Rent alone is nearly $1800.00 a month.  Our goal is to help them pay for several months of rent and any medical bills including ambulance ride that were the result of the heart attack. We have already paid this month's rent and would be grateful for any help you can provide moving forward. If you received a stimulus payment perhaps you could donate part of it to the Kotaks. 

In addition, we are trying to help Aman find a better paying job and would also be grateful for any leads you can provide.

Thank you and God bless you!
In Christ,

Jacqueline & Greg Schleppenbach
