Salman Mehmood a.k.a SKDev (1985 – 2009)
Salman Mehmood the founder of Thalassemia.com.pk is no longer among us. He left this world at 2 pm PST on 19th October 2009 due to meningitis.
He was a thalassemic himself, 24 years old, working as a web developer for a US based company named ‘Directors Advantage’.
His dream was to save next generation from thalassemia, he wanted badly assembly to pass the thalassemia prevention bill and how unlucky of him that bill just got pass when he died…, he wanted to aware every single soul about thalassemia, he even mentioned his cause on a TV show, you can see the video on Youtube.
Rest about him I won’t write because other bloggers/journalist/writers have written on him a lot. As a brother he was a gem!
Am posting some of the articles/posts written on him, I will be including more whenever they are available to me:
If am missing any article that you know please mention, I want to gather all those articles/videos/posts all on one place.
May Allah grant him the highest rank of Jannah! ameen
