“With this new funding and the incredible group of partners who have joined us, we are ready to expand across the country and be able to support more families during the difficult times of grieving their loved ones,” said Ahmed Gaballah, founder and CEO of SOKNA. “As a mission-driven team, we always have our ‘why’ front and center: allowing people to focus on the farewell rather than the paperwork, and honoring departing souls and their families by relieving the logistical pain of those moments.”
