Update (17-01-20): Alhumdulillah, the father has received the donations. He was extremely thankful to all the donors. His voice message in Urdu is available below. JazakAllah khair for your contributions.
Update (15-01-20): Alhumdulillah, SAR 2,312 (Rs 94,561) have been collected and transferred to my colleague’s account, who will add his own donation and hand it over to the father. Another Rs 50,000 has been received by the father directly. An ex-colleague of STC knows the father from Pakistan and is trying to gather donations as well. JazakAllah khair for your contributions.

Msg from a colleague in STC:
I have known the father personally for the last 3 to 4 years, he was working as a caretaker in Knowledge Core Riyadh for 8 years. His job ended and he was jobless for 6 months. We helped him in Iqama renewal previously, for details plz refer to [Completed] – Request for Donations for a Jobless Person in Riyadh. Alhumdulillah, he is now working in STC as a Field Laborer and is able to sustain the regular financial requirements of his family. He is looking for financial support for one of his daughters’ wedding, which is planned for February 2020.
I have verified this case through another source, who knows the father more closely. Before his job ended, he had not been receiving his salary for some time and thus his financial situation is indeed weak and the marriage is planned for February 2020. He is a diabetes patient. He has 4 daughters and 2 sons, who live in a rented house in Pakistan. One of his daughters is already married.
If you would like to donate any money then it will be transferred to my colleague’s bank account. Donations can be made through any of the following channels:
- In cash to me
- Via STC Pay (Instructions)
- In my KSA Bank Account
- In my Pakistani Bank Account
- Via PayPal – https://paypal.me/urShadow
