The Fajr Memorial Foundation aims to help
Save Lives one swimmer at a time.
Every year in United States Of America drowning is a leading cause of deaths.
In New York State,death by drowning is the number one cause of unintentional deaths in children under five and the number two cause in children from five to fourteen.
For every nine drownings,six are suffered by minorities.
Approximately 760 children die each year as a result of unintentional drowning.
The Fajr Memorial Foundation Seeks to change these statistics.
Fajr Memorial Foundation named in honor of Fajr Javid, a selfless nine year old girl from NYC.She drowned on June26th 2010 after giving her life vest to a younger child saying " you need this more then me ".
Family of Fajr established this foundation in August 2011 to recognize her supreme scrifice.
The Fajr Memorial Foundation strives to break barriers,weather its a religious observance (Like Fajr never got to learn swimming because there were no program which was not mix gender) or financial problems.
The FMF wants to help every one to learn swimming.Foundation will encourage parents to learn water safety rules and use them in every day life.FMF will visit local schools to disseminate water safety information for drowning prevention.
