TeamAid - A big thank you for holding our hands throughout the process when our mind was so disturbed by losing a dear friend at a very young age to a cardiac arrest and had zero knowledge of how to deal with the unforeseen situation. I am very grateful for getting in touch with TEAM Aid through the Indian embassy site and appreciate the non-stop guidance provide by the team. The team was able to find the best options in terms of availability, pricing, location, accommodate our needs, and more.
Much appreciate the help and glad we found you. Thank you again, TeamAid for the wonderful voluntary help you provide to people like us.

We came in contact with TEAM Aid through the Indian Embassy, and right from the first phone call, TEAM Aid assisted us in each step to repatriate my friend's remains back to India.

I sought the help of TEAM Aid in preparation for the funeral of my beloved mother-in-law, who had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and passed away. In particular, Ramakrishna assisted me in finding a suitable funeral home, crematorium, and priest so that we could follow our Hindu traditions as much as possible. He shared his personal experience of the time when he went through something similar. That was so helpful. TEAM Aid is an organization that cares about helping the community and I would recommend them to anyone.

I recently lost my wife. I was in total shock and did not know how to send her body to India at the request of her family.
TEAM Aid coordinators helped me through this tough time. They genuinely cared and went all the way to help make the process smooth and painless. Their coordinators, Mr.Mohan and Mrs. Saroja went as far as giving me their personal cell numbers and asked me to call them anytime. It is rare to get an amazing service in situations like these.
Thank you, TEAM Aid volunteers for all your help and support. If anyone ever needs help in dire situations like this, please contact TEAM Aid. Their volunteers will go that extra mile to help you.

My father in law passed away in India due to Covid. Just 20 minutes after the news my mother in law, who is visiting us couldn’t digest the sad news and rested on sofa peacefully.
It was a disaster for us and I didn’t know what to do next. TEAM Aid team voluntarily helped us from all the phases of her final rites. I can’t imagine my life in this period without their help.
Thank you so much TEAM Aid. You are the real volunteers.

"My friend Timmy H. died on August 10th, 2020 from cardiac arrest after a period of declining health. He had served in the US Army, was a Vietnam War veteran and was honorably discharged. He never married, had no immediate family and no financial resources. Timmy did belong to a society of people whose mission, like TEAM Aid, is to be of service to others from which he had a circle of good friends. During his life, Timmy had helped a lot of people.
Upon his passing, TEAM Aid (with assistance from Timmy’s social worker) stepped in to provide for Timmy’s funeral expenses and arrangements. It seemed fitting that Timmy, a guy who was of service to many in life, was treated so well by TEAM Aid in death. Because of TEAM Aid, Timmy was given a proper burial with military honors in the NJ veterans’ cemetery.
On behalf of my friends and myself, I want to say “thank you” to TEAM Aid for the loving care and service you provided to Timmy and that we greatly appreciate all you’ve done. "

"During these difficult and desperate times with the passing of my father from a severe disease and alcohol addiction. Saving him was bear impossible now, he entered a shock that unfortunately he couldn’t wake up from and as the day progressed his condition got worse. On Friday July 31st we recurred the news that he was now resting. We were in disbelief and shock that he had passed away. We were lacking financial support, luckily for us fellow volunteers came forward and supported us with transporting my father to his home country and helping setting the funeral home, the transport, and much more. These people supports my family and I through this whole process and kept us updated with every little news details. We are very appreciated for everything they did for us during these sad times.Without the support of these people we would’ve been in a more Severe situation, we are thankful from the bottom of our hearts for everything TEAM Aid has done and will continue to do.

"My father, Mr. BRB, immigrated to the United States from Poland, via Germany in approximately March of 1956 at the age of 11. He and his parents, were granted passage as indentured servants in order to pay for their trip to the States. Once here, my father was never enrolled in school and his education basically stopped with the equivalency of a 4th grade level. That lack of education however did not stop him from not only serving in the US Army - a deployment to Vietnam during the war with an eventual honorable discharge - but also later in life joining the construction crews that would come to build the original Twin Towers in NYC. For the majority of my life, I knew my father as a manual laborer, mostly landscaping with some side jobs plowing snow or as a handyman. He was a man with an incredible work ethic and dedication to his job, regardless of what it was. By example, both he and my grandfather taught me that no job was too small or meaningless to dedicate yourself to with intensity and a determination to complete the task fully and to the best of their ability. I often refer to these attributes within myself as being American born but Polish made. To borrow a quote from the play Hamilton, “Immigrants! They get the job done.” I only hope to honor his memory in some way by instilling in my son, while he’s only 1 he’s carrying on the lineage of my family name, those very same virtues and work ethic that were demonstrated to me.
Due to the kindness and generosity of your organization, Team Aid.org, I have been able to breath comfortably and rest easily knowing that my father's wishes to be cremated are being carried out and he can be at peace.
Thank you again for all you and your organization have done for me. I hope to one day be in a position to pay that same generosity forward or somehow partner with you and your organization to carry on the amazing charitable work you are doing.
All my warmest regards to you and everyone at Team Aid.org, without our relationship I honestly don’t know how I would have handled not only the services but the passing of my father in general."

Can’t thanks enough to everyone. Many thanks to Srinivas Mr. Bathchu for putting together all the resources and initiating this tough process.Big thanks to Mr. JP Samuel, and Mr. Mohan for kindly navigating from the beginning and helping in following up at coroner office.

Appreciate all the help and service Frank and his staff provided coordinating at coroner office and connecting with the priest Mr. Jagdesh, who performed the last ritual this noon so well.
Once again, Thank you and God bless you all. Stay safe!

"TEAM Aid is a team which makes you feel that they are not from outside your family but they will make sure they communicate with you as if they are your extended family. My husband was located in New Jersey and we all were being in India and in this COVID world lockdown situation, Team Aid went beyond expectations and arranged everything in such an outstanding manner that words fall short to express my gratitude towards entire team. Really in this worst phase of my life, Team Aid was a lifesaver and helped us in the best possible manner. I had a chance to arrange everything sitting back in India with the help of TEAM Aid. Thank you so much for each and every piece of arrangement and making this whole cremation a lifetime memory. "

The family members wanted to send his body back to India but didn’t know anything about the process while the whole family was in a state of shock about the sudden demise. Was referred to Mohan Garu by my friend and the moment I called him, he was very helpful in guiding me through the entire process and put me on the call with the respective parties and made sure we were taken care of. He was never hesitant to give us any information possible whenever we called him. He was very patient and provided us with all the information in spite of the same questions being asked.

When my cousin passed away in the U.S. recently, Team AID was one of the first organizations to reach out to the family in India to offer their help and assistance. Their guidance was invaluable at such a difficult time, when the family was reeling under the shock of the loss of a loved one and wasn't sure how to proceed. Team AID helped us understand some of the important procedures involved in getting the departed back to his home country and stayed available nearly 24/7 to answer our queries. They also gave us helpful suggestions and further contacts to plan related to the funeral rites. Eventually the family made funeral and other arrangements through help from close friends and relatives in the U.S. But TEAM Aid stayed in touch with us all throughout, offering their thoughtful suggestions and genuinely wanting to make sure that everything was going smoothly for the family. We are touched by this kind gesture and we are deeply grateful for all your help, guidance and assistance! Thank you so much!

I would like to wholeheartedly appreciate and thank the services of TEAM Aid during these extremely difficult times for our family. TEAM Aid's volunteers acted like our extended family, helped us and literally handheld us through every single process, from consoling the family, explaining the situation, following up with the funeral home and all the way to completion of repatriation.

When the tragedy struck, we went through the initial sadness and shock before finding ourselves absolutely clueless about the next steps. My cousin was killed in a road accident in Nashville. It was Thanksgiving weekend. Without any workable flight options from Florida, we were all set to start driving. A friend called and told me about the TEAM aid. It was a godsend. Within minutes of contacting, Mohan from Teamaid got in touch with us and explained the whole repatriation process. TEAM Aid coordinators guided us through the initial paperwork, especially parental authorization. From that point onwards, Team aid took over and handled the entire process obtaining the necessary legal, medical, consulate approvals while constantly keeping us updated. The care and concern they showed felt like from an extended family. I can not even imagine how we could have dealt with such a painful situation without Teamaid's help. No words can do justice to how thankful we felt.

“Dear TEAM Aid team,
We (me, my whole family and friends) owe you a big gratitude and thanks for all that you have been to us through the toughest time we ever had; thanking is never enough. Yes, while we were still in trauma and were still gathering our breath to come to terms with the fact that my father was no more when his presence was so palpable - there you were to help us the totally unimaginable\unknown processes of everything around my father's demise - you knew what we wanted to hear and what we were in need of(we didn't know it really); we could not imagine what we could have done without your help. With the Thanksgiving holidays around - you were there for us anytime and for anything, we felt that we were never alone; so that we were able to grieve and think of my father; with all your help - he reached India on time and we could do all the rituals on time too. We couldn't talk enough of you at home and with our friends and family as well. Thank you and God bless.”

"My father met with a fatal road accident and lost his life in the hospital while fighting for his life. It was the most tragic incident happened to me and I still can't forget that till date. But after his death the last thing I wanted to take his body to India so that my relatives could see them for the final time, and I was looking for a good funeral service who could do that. I was unsure about the process, rules and approvals etc. to follow. But luckily, I got to know about Team Aid in that crucial juncture and contacted them.
And I was so impressed with their service and professionalism and the way they did it so quickly and within a week's span without my involvement was really top-notch. Once I gave them my approval my part was over, and they took the rest and starting from taking the body from the morgue to ensure all the certification and approval and finally they sent the body to India at the right time."

"My father in law was hospitalized in the SICU of Rhode Island Hospital due to acute pancreatitis for close 3 months. After showing some signs of recovery, he had a setback and due to how sick he was, he could never recover and on the 6th of OCT 2019, he died when he had multiple organ failures. Given how distress and confused me and the family was on what would be our next steps and how to deal with it, I got introduced to Team Aid from one of my friends. Shankar, Ramakrishna, Mohan, and others from TEAM Aid immediately contacted me to understand the situation. The amount of support, guidance and help my family received from them was accurate, priceless and what we needed at that moment. They explained the procedures in taking my father in law back to India and arranged everything in a timely fashion that is needed while I and my family tried to come out from our loss. It would have been impossible for me to take my father in law back to India without Team Aid's help. We will be thankful for the rest of our lives to the team for what they have done. We were able to complete the final rights after receiving him in Bangalore, India. I thank the team again."

"From the family of Siripurapu & Kollapaneni, our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the support provided by Mohan Nannapaneni, Sunil Chitrapu, and Team Aid volunteers in transferring Sri Seshaiah Kollapaneni's remains from Redmond (WA, USA) to Hyderabad (India).
Mr. Seshaiah was on a family trip to the USA and had a major heart attack on 18th Aug 2019 and was kept on a ventilator for 3 days before he passed away. It was a very difficult situation for our family to cope with the circumstances. Team Aid was very supportive in not only explaining the process & required documentation to transfer the remains to India but also were guiding at each stage, with the same concern as a family member. Their support at the time of difficult hours can't be thanked enough. Our Heartfelt THANKS again to Team Aid and specifically to Mohan for being with us as an extended family.

We were blank and needed help and guidance on proceeding the situation. We contacted TEAM Aid and they helped us from that moment onwards and until reaching the body in India.
As a foreigner in a far place with no family nearby, when we get into such a situation, we will not have a single clue on what to do next. Team Aid has provided me support during this critical time."

"Our sincere thanks to all the members of Team Aid on behalf of Mr. Ram Batchu's family. The sudden death of Mr. Ram was a huge shock to the family and it would have been a difficult situation for everyone if not for Team Aid's help. We would like to acknowledge and express our gratitude for Mr. Srinivas & Mr. Mohan who have been in constant touch with us from day 1. They guided us throughout the process of transferring Mr. Ram Batchu from Boston, the USA to Tenali, India. They have been very sensitive about the approach and have gone out of their way to provide support morally and financially in the time of need for the family. They have become part of our family and they are still making sure everyone is doing fine after reaching India as well. Mere words are not enough to express our gratitude to them and the entire team involved in the process. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TEAM AID and keep doing the good work for the community."

“Team Aid was outstandingly helpful in handling my friend sudden dismissal and transfer him to India. They have pretty good experience on how to handle this kind of situation, they were always available on the phone, kind enough to respond to our basic questions. Particularly, Mohan - The president was very knowledgeable on the process and willing to expedite this in all possible ways and he did it. We were a little concerned about death certificates, he assured that it will be delivered during the ID viewing and it was delivered without any delay. Overall, the end to end process went really smooth. It is our friends' responsibility to spread this word with our other friends about your service, but I'm highly hoping that no one requires this service going forward at this young age of sudden death, I pray for it.”

"A simple thanks won't be enough for the help, support you and TEAM Aid provided. When my father passed away, I didn't know what to do, wasn't sure how to take my father's body to India. You (Ravi Alluri) & TEAM Aid stepped in at the right time, taken care of the entire process and guided me in a proper direction to get the things done quickly without hassles. Except for Ravi Alluri, none of the Team Aid members I know in person but everyone responded voluntarily did their best to get the things done at the right time. I will never forget your efforts in my lifetime. Definitely, people like you, organizations like TeamAid are required for the people who are in crisis. You people are doing an amazing job here.

No one prepares for such an incident and so neither we. The funeral home details provided by TeamAid was the single most useful piece of information that was needed and the experience working with them could not have been better. In addition, we were able to contact Mohan/ TeamAid for additional paperwork that is needed in such cases. Thank you all.

"My best friend collapsed at his home in New Jersey with a massive heart attack. I live in Massachusets and knew about Team Aid, immediately reached to local volunteers, and got connected with NJ volunteers in no time. Immediate and unconditional help from TeamAid is invaluable. It was very difficult for the family in deep trouble and sorrow to handle unknown and uncommon logistics due to the sudden demise of the loved one. TeamAid volunteers join the hands right-way, unconditionally like family members.
TeamAid gives guidance with logistics, support and educates the family. TEAM Aid has ample volunteers in every location, they are ready to help with multiple volunteers, help the family in every direction needed, you ask for help and you have it! Grate job TeamAid! Serving mankind is Serving GOD!!"

One of my friends connected me with a TEAM Aid coordinator, who has helped remarkably in getting all the formalities done in PA and then brought my Father remains to NJ and then shipped to India. Every time I called, TEAM Aid, they have answered within the 2nd ring and didn’t miss my call until date. We had an enormous pressure (physical and mental) and the help rendered by TEAM Aid can't be thanked enough and there are no words to express our sincere gratitude”

“ I have to express my deepest gratitude to the team that helped my brother's final transition as smooth as possible. No one ever thinks of these things or knows anyone who can help them in such situations. However, Mr. Mohan called us and coordinated everything with his team so that everything can be less stressful for the family. The team that helped us was extremely professional, empathetic and respectful towards us. That was the only positive thing in the entire tragedy. Thank you, it must be very difficult to deal with death on a constant basis and with families of the deceased, but I can tell you that you people are heroes in your own right, trying to help people on their worst day. That is more than I can hope everyone has a right to. Thank you!” - Swati B. Balabhadrapatruni
