Worldwide fundraising mission completed despite tragedy

The goal of a trip around the world was to raise $1 million to build schools in Pakistan, and a donor has completed the mission for the two pilots who crashed in July.

Babar Suleman and his 17-year-old son Haris had raised $500,000 before their June takeoff. They left from Greenwood in their single-engine plane, visited 14 countries and were headed back to the U.S. when their plane went down July 22 off the coast of American Samoa.

Haris’ body was found, and his father and much of the plane are still missing.
