Support Peace through Sport actions
Abid Aziz passed away from cancer at age 43 on December 3, 2017, in London. For 18 months, he fought hard, with a smile and now is in a better place.
Through out his life, Abid was hopelessly devoted to his family; he only ever wanted to see his loved ones happy. He was highly intelligent and analytical, passionate about his work in the financial markets in NY, Bahrain, Hong Kong and London. But his lifelong passion was most certainly sports – cricket, tennis, darts, football, you name it. Over the years, he travelled the globe to watch his favorite teams play, from Jamaica to South Africa and Sri Lanka. More recently, in the UK, he frequented cricket matches at Lord’s and football matches at Anfield to cheer on his beloved Liverpool FC. This was a passion he also shared with his nine year old daughter and his wife of 12 years.
Many of Abid’s friends and family around the world have asked to make a charitable donation in his name – they remember him for his sense of humor, sincerity and caring nature. Given his lifelong passion for sports, all are welcome to contribute to charity Peace and Sport. The Abid Aziz Fund will go entirely to Peace and Sport’s “Live Together” program to help Syrian refugee youth in Jordan’s Za’atari camp.
