On Wednesday, August 6, 2014 around 6:30pm, the lives of the family members of Mr. Devshi Padamshi Malde (Shahini Stores) were drastically altered by a senseless and cold-blooded crime.  Mr. Malde and his youngest son, Nitesh Malde had just reached his home in Nairobi when they were approached by gunmen.  They were held at gun point and ordered to give up their belongings. Mr. Malde and his son obliged without resistance. As the armed men turned to flee, they opened fire on the father and son without any provocation. Mr. Devshi Malde was killed instantly and Nitesh was hit and critically injured. He was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit and thankfully, the surgeons managed to save his life.

There was more bad news to come. The gun shots had pierced his lungs and spine. He would now be paralyzed from the waist down.

Tragedy has now visited Mr. Devshi Malde’s family thrice – the first occurring 21 years ago, on August 19, 1993, when his second born son, Pankaj, was fatally shot in similar circumstances.  The second was the sudden demise of his oldest son—Punit, 42—of a massive heart-attack. The third time has been no less tragic.

Without his father, Nitesh will now be the sole bread-winner for family. He now has to provide for his two young children, Bhavita and Veer, his wife, and his aging mother and grieving widow of Devshibhai. The immense challenges that await him and his humble family are unfathomable. Nitesh will not be able to work while he is recovering from his injuries and his family has no means to pay the exorbitant hospital bills and upcoming care that he will need. This family needs a show of support to help them through this tragedy. They need us to show them that they are not alone. Their situation is heart-breaking and while there is nothing we can do to undo this tragedy, with some help hopefully they can find the strength to carry on.

We are starting a fund with the goal of raising $20,000 to help with this family in their time of need. Even though their need is far greater, any help they get will go a long way. Please show the Malde family your support by donating and helping spread the word by including a link to this page in your Facebook/google+/any other social media account. Remember that even $1 will help this family and you will be helping the inadvertent victims of a senseless crime in their time of need.  Let’s together make a positive difference for the family of the Late Devshi Padamshi Malde.
