In Memory of...

It is with great sadness that one of our Board of Trustees, Sufia Uddin, lost her father, Hajji Riaz Uddin, on January 10, 2017.  In lieu of flowers, the family has asked you to consider donating to AIBS. 

Hajji Riaz Uddin arrived in the US after leaving his home in Beanibazar, Sylhet as a young man in 1957. He started out as a dishwasher, married, had three children, and lived the American dream by working hard, establishing his own businesses, and being part of a community.  He instilled “knowledge is power” in his three children and ensured they all went to college. 

Donating to AIBS will ensure Hajji Riaz Uddin’s love of his homeland, Bangladesh, and the love of education, continues through future AIBS programs.
