Memorial for Abida Karim
At this year’s Day of Memory, Ria shared a touching tribute in honour of her mum Abida Karim. Abida was murdered by her husband in September 2020.
Ria shared how she and her siblings were not informed about their mum’s funeral until only a few hours before the service. Denied the opportunity to say ‘goodbye’, the children have shared with us their wish to hold a memorial day to provide their mother with the send-off that she deserved.
