Four of the students aged from 5yrs to 12 yrs died. One girl, Tasnim aged 6 yrs has lost her whole family.

Who are the Taekwon-Do students that were involved in the Grenfell Tower fire?

The six students of Kensington Taekwon-Do school taught by Grand Master Donato Nardizzi 9th Degree are: Shekeb Neda 24, Yahya Hashim 12, Malek Belkadi 6, Yakub Belkadi 6, and Yakub Hashim 5. They were made up of 4 separate families.

Malek Belkadi 8 and Tasnim Belkadi 6 were carried to safety by their brave father Omar. Sadly, Malak later died in hospital. Their mother Farah Hamdi and 6 month old baby Leena also died as did Omar as he tried to rescue his wife. Tasnim is the only survivor of the family and she will get as much help as possible from us to ensure she has secure future.

Isaac Paulos 5 died of smoke inhalation. His family survived including his younger brother and we will give them our support.

Shekeb Neda (centre) is a black belt who bravely saved his mother’s life by carrying her to safety from the top floor. Sadly, his father did not survive.

The Hashim family which include Yahya 12 and Yakub 6 who did Taekwon-Do, have not been found and are presumed dead.
