Majeed Ekbal is a prominent Chicago real estate investor. He has lived within the city for the better part of the last three decades. During his time in the community he has helped bring all sorts of new investments and businesses to local communities. One of this investments includes shopping markets and grocery stores. In areas throughout southern Chicago, there were not very many large markets where locals could buy produce and food to use at home and at restaurants. This made it not only difficult for individuals to purchase products they needed, but it also made it rather expensive to purchase items as the only thing available for them to shop at was corner drug stores, which typically include a large price increase due to the convenience. So, while Majeed has worked as a major real estate investor throughout Chicago, he also has served as someone who cares about community and looks to give back. He is doing exactly that with a Go Fund Me campaign, designed to help bring necessary resources to communities throughout Nepal, who are still struggling since massive earthquakes hit the nation nearly one year ago.
The Go Fund Me campaign is designed to help raise around $20,000. This money is then going to go towards a much larger campaign that is spearheaded by an international donation group. Majeed Ekbal and this group is hoping to raise $1 million total in funding so it can provide the money throughout Nepal. Money has come into the northern Asian nation from around the world, yet it still needs more. Complete towns remain in ruins and individuals living away from the nation’s capital are finding it hard to rebuild, to educate their children and to seek medical treatment. Tens of thousands of individuals still require medical assistance, yet they have not received it either because they are unable to afford it or they are just too far away and are living with the conditions. The $20,000 and, eventual $1 million, is going to go a long way at providing medical attention to these communities while also build the properties back up.
