Share The Love

On December 18, 2023, Aga’s Restaurant & Catering made a $25,000 donation to Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB).
Aga’s Restaurant is locally owned by Shaukat Maredia and his family. As part of the generous check presentation, Shaukat was given a behind-the-scenes tour of CAFB by CEO Ruthanne Mefford and Development Director Lisa Moore. Sugar Land City Councilman Naushaud Kermally also joined the tour.
Shaukat says, “My father taught me that charity begins at home, with family, neighbors, and community. Charity does not see color or religion, and that we should always remember that somebody needs our help…that we can make a difference in someone’s life. I grew up in a small village in South Asia in a home that was smaller than my current living room. I came to this country with $900 in my pocket. What Fort Bend County has given me and my family is beyond imagination. I do whatever I can to make this community a better place. I can feel the good energy here at CAFB, the power. I’m so thrilled and honored to be a part of this.”
CAFB serves child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect through a one-stop, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach. It operates two nationally affiliated programs: Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). In its cozy, nature-themed facility in Rosenberg, CAFB meets these children where they are…making them feel comfortable and safe. Since its launch in 1991, CAFB has served more than 22,000 children. Last year, nearly 4,000 families and children were served. All CAFB services are free of charge.
“Councilman Kermally and I know a lot of people,” continues Shaukat. “Our goal is to raise awareness. CAFB is transforming lives. This organization makes Fort Bend County a better place. I plan to raise a lot of money for them, and I encourage other local businesses and individuals in our community to learn more about CAFB. To facilitate this, I will be organizing free dinner events at Aga’s Restaurant where CAFB can come out and speak to business owners. Together, we can make a huge impact in the lives of these children and families.”
A VOICES FOR CHILDREN behind-the-scenes tour of CAFB can be scheduled by contacting Lisa at or 281-344-5108. Tours are held once a month.
