The Children of War


Najib Aziz


With Heavy hearts and regrets we announce the death of our Founder and President:
Najib Aziz, Founder and President of The Children of War,
Born October 20, 1959, and died April 11, 2009.

The Members of the Board of The Children of War (TCOW), would like to hereby express our most sincere condolences on the sudden and tragic passing away of our dear friend and brother, Mr Najib Aziz, the Founder and President of TCOW. (Ena lillahae wa ena elahe raja’oon)

Najib Aziz was an amazing human being who with personal desire and passion was able to affect thousands of lives in Afghanistan over the last 16 years. He founded this non-profit organization in 1993 starting from the refugee camps of Pakistan, always determined to help those less fortunate and in most desperate need. Najib sacrificed his entire life for the orphans and disabled children of Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife, Mejgan Aziz, and his three daughters: Tameena and Sara (twins, 17), Yasameen (8).

We the Board, thank each and every donor for your ongoing support of TCOW’s initiatives in Afghanistan. We are a small organization which has always operated solely on the generous contributions of people like you so your ongoing assistance to keep Najib jaan’s dreams alive has never been more needed than now.

In the near future we will be sending out a follow up message to all notifying of steps we will take to ensure the long-term success of this organization.

However, now most sadly on behalf of the Aziz and Bashir family, we must inform the public of the jinaaza and funeral procession should you be able to participate in and show his family your support and gratitude for this great man’s dedication to a most important cause of helping families and especially children of Afghanistan.

Burial information below. Please consider continuing to support our efforts by making a donation to our organization online.

The Burial was held on Monday, April 13th at 1:00pm at the:
