My wife Professor, Dr. Anita Saxena had gone to Orlando, USA to attend an international conference on the 3rd of November 2022. She unexpectedly & unfortunately passed away on November 6th, 2022 in Orlando. She had traveled alone to the USA and we were informed about her death in India We were at loss as to how to get her mortal remains back to India. The Indian Consulate in Atlanta was extremely helpful & cooperative and suggested that we get in touch with “TEAM Aid” who would do the needful and get the formalities completed for the repatriation of her mortal remains. Mr. Mohan got in touch with us and was most reassuring and informed us about the various formalities that would have to be completed. Mr. Sreenivas who is based in Florida personally went to the morgue and hotel to expedite the return. Unfortunately, a hurricane had hit Florida but in spite of the inclement weather, Mr. Sreenivas put his own life in danger to get the work done at the earliest. After the weather improved the mortal remains were sent to New York and Mr. Mohan kept a 24-hour vigil to get the formalities completed at the Indian consulate in New York on a Saturday and get the coffin booked on the Air India flight for transportation to India. It was only because of the untiring and continued efforts of the members of Team Aid, Indian consulate officials, Funeral Home services, Air India, TATA AIG, Europe Assist, and Indian Customs that the mortal remains of my wife could come back to India. I was very surprised to learn from Mr. Mohan that the entire TEAM Aid members were working as volunteers for performing this noble service. I and my entire family bow our heads to the entire Team Aid team for their enormous help and compassion. They were very considerate and reassuring, and their ability to solve all problems with complete efficiency and in the shortest possible time is exemplary. They are true saviors and heroes who go out of their way to help strangers like me and my family in our moments of great distress. I and my family remain indebted to Team Aid for our entire lives. I wish TEAM Aid the very best and pray to the lord to give them greater strength to continue their noble work for humanity. May God bless them all. — Dr. Amit Gupta, Lucknow, UP India

TEAM Aid’s coordinators Mohan, Dunnia, and Shankar were extremely helpful in dealing with the body transport of a close family friend. They were like the SWAT team that descended and helped with all the information and coordinated all the different services. We were very thankful to have found them in helping us with this process. God bless them all for the kind work they do. — Chikku Baiju

I was very happy with the prompt support provided by TEAM Aid’s Coordinator Mr. Krishna Majeti in logistics arrangements. The entire process helped us not to worry about all the logistics hassles and helped us with too many unknowns. Krishna was always available when we needed him. He also gave us space to grieve. I really admire the courage and generosity of all volunteers who are helping our Indian community to handle such a delicate matter. Once again thanks from my family members for all your support. — Dinesh Lokhande

Right from my first conversation with Mohan, I felt like I had a family member in Boston, assisting me with the formalities. He and his team were diligent in updating us about each step and possible hurdles. TEAM Aid gave us the utmost confidence in ensuring that our loved one would be brought home with all the respect and dignity we wanted for him. — Kavitha M

In our tough times, we got good guidance and support from TEAM Aid. We appreciate the support, kindness, and advice received from team aid. Mohan from team aid provided guidance through this journey. It was a death case of a cancer patient 40 years old. From Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA to Kerala state in India. We performed rituals at a local mosque in New Jersey and were able to send the body to India from JFK airport. Our local team was able to work together with the TEAM Aid team and was able to make things happen in a fast manner. Team aid provided advice and arranged a funeral agent that suits to handle an out-of-state case. The cost was also very reasonable and much lesser than others. Really appreciate the support from Team Aid and like to join as a volunteer. -Ahamed Kabir

Thank you to Team Aid for helping me with my nephew’s funeral arrangements. It was hard for me to get hold of funeral places in New York. USA as I lived in British Columbia, Canada. I had emailed many but did not get any response. Mr. Mohan from TEAM Aid assisted in organizing the funeral of my nephew whose body was recovered from Niagara Falls in the New York side. He also helped with getting the paperwork filled out. Thank you for providing me with assistance. through this difficult time. — Rajwant Ranu

TEAM Aid was very helpful in guiding me through the very difficult process of sending my former husband’s ashes to his home country of India. They also helped us to work with the Indian Embassy to manage the cost of the cremation. Everyone was very responsive and professional, as well as kind and compassionate in our time of need. – Brenda S

On behalf of Amanpreet Singh’s family and the entire Barara Village, I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to TEAM Aid. I was informed about Amanpreet’s sudden death on 9/17 in NYC. He was only 21 years old and recently came to the USA two months back. His father is financially struggling and was in utter shock with the news of his son’s demise. His parents were repeatedly asking me only one thing. “Please send our son back so we can see him and respectfully perform his final rites.” I was so lost and emotionally drained. I had no hope, help, or guidance. I called the Indian Embassy on 9/18/2022 and I was immediately connected to Mr. Mohan from TEAM Aid. I still remember my phone call with Mr. Mohan, his demeanor was so comforting and reassuring once I explained my concerns and Aman’s family’s situation to him. I couldn’t believe someone who has no connection with the family and had compassion for strangers in a vulnerable situation is ready to take charge of the whole situation. Indian Embassy paid the expenses and TEAM aid took care of everything else. Mr. Mohan and Mr. Raj Punjabi kept us updated on every step. Within 5 days Amanpreets’s family was able to perform his funeral in India. This whole experience was very motivating for me. I wish I could find enough words to express my appreciation for the kind support. I really appreciate the selfless efforts of Mohan, Raj, their organization TEAM Aid, and the Indian Embassy of New York. I have learned a lot from this Experience. I hope to work with TEAM Aid with the same sincerity and commitment in the near future. — Shirmeej Singh
