Abdul Ahad Choudhury was a hardworking man who embodied all that is good in this world. He spent his life in pursuit of bringing happiness to people for the sake of Allah (swt). He was a man of integrity, humility and unwavering generosity. He opened his heart and home to countless individuals and families. When hopeful young newcomers would arrive in Canada, he would personally greet them at the airport with warmth and excitement. He would offer them shelter, food, and even employment at his very own restaurant. He treated guests both at home and in the workplace with the utmost of love, respect and honour. His cheerful, endearing smile never ceased, even during the most challenging of times. His signature laugh would resonate and bring life into any space even before he entered. He was a pillar in his local Montreal community and positively impacted lives wherever he went. He enjoyed hosting gatherings in his home and playing enthusiastically with his four grandchildren. He relished a good tennis match, was fond of fishing and riverside picnics, and always appreciated a good pot of biryani.
As a man who was always committed to serving others, he shared with his family a dream of one day establishing a medical clinic in his home country of Bangladesh. He envisioned a clinic that would offer essential healthcare and medical treatment to communities with limited access to care. In order to fulfil his dream, his children have partnered with OBAT Canada (https://obatcanada.org/), an organization which advocates for global health equity through community projects. In memory of Abdul Ahad Choudhury, his family would like to sponsor OBAT Canada’s newest project of setting up a medical clinic in Bangladesh to serve disadvantaged communities from displaced population camps. This clinic will be located in the city of Saidpur, Bangladesh. The plan currently involves a primary care clinic that will be run by on-site physicians, medical assistants and volunteers, providing doctor consultations, prescription filling as well as off-site laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging when required.
We invite you to take part in this fundraising effort for the Saidpur Medical Clinic. All proceeds go directly to the development of this clinic and all donations are 100% tax deductible. Should you have further questions or would like an update on the clinic, please feel free to contact OBAT directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or reach out to Abdul Ahad Choudhury’s children (email@example.com).
