My name is Andrew MacDonald, starting in 2007 through to 2012 I had a little brother through Big Brothers / Big Sisters (BBBS) of Ottawa, named Leslie Mwakio.
On Tuesday December 6th, 2016 this 17-year-old boy was shot and murdered in his car on Bayswater Avenue near Laurel Street resulting in Ottawa’s 20th homicide of the year.
Leslie’s family is from Kenya and in their tradition they would like to send his body home to rest with other members of his family. The family is looking for a way to help fund this $10,000 expense to ship his body to Kenya. Donate on the Gofundme account: https://www.gofundme.com/sending-leslies-body-back-to-kenya
Any amount will help, so consider donating $5, $10 or whatever you are able to provide to help us reach our goal.
