An offshoot of el Wafeyat, 'In Memory Of' lets you launch charitable projects in the name of the deceased.
Online obituary service El Wafeyat has announced the introduction of a new service that allows users to set up charitable projects in the name of the deceased.
InMemoryOf.com, an offshoot of ElWafeyat.com, is a collaboration between the startup and various charitable foundations across the country that allows family and friends of the deceased to either donate to an ongoing project or crowdfund a new one.
Based on the Islamic concept of Sadaqa Gariya (an ongoing good deed that lasts after the person is dead), InMemoryOf offers a number of charitable projects such as connecting a house to water and electricity, sponsoring a child's education, making a financial contribution to a poor couple's marriage fund, constructing/renovating a poor household's ceiling, or donate to Ahl Masr Burns Hospital. You can also donate to some of the already existing projects set up by other people.
