A Michigan couple has died from coronavirus, leaving their three children as orphans.
Nameer and Nada Ayram, Iraqi immigrants who moved to Detroit eight years ago, were both admitted to hospitals in late March with COVID-19.
Their son Nashwan, 20, and daughters Nadeen, 18, and Nanssy, 13, have no other family in the country, but their community has pitched in to help.
GoFundMe set up by one of Nashwan’s friends has raised nearly $150,000 since it was set up April 11, while United Community Family Services/Chaldean American Ladies of Charity has set up its own donation link for the family.
Nada, 46, died from COVID-19 on April 21. Her husband Nameer, 52, died 20 days later on May 11.
More than 4,700 people in Michigan have died from coronavirus, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins. That’s the fourth-highest total of any state in the country behind New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
