Today in Sri Lanka on April 21st Easter Sunday a state of emergency has been declared. Six simultaneous bombings have taken place in 3 churches( St Anthony's Shrine, Zion church and St.Sebastians) and 3 hotels( Cinnamon Grande, Shang-ri La and Kingsbury). The bombings that took place at the churches were targeted towards people congregated for Easter Sunday. The hotel bombings have targeted tourists and foreigners on travels.
Update: The Eighth Bomb has taken place after the six simultaneous ones earlier. The s seventh bombing targeted Mount Lavinia Hotel while the eighth one took place at a locals home.
The reported casualties are currently 207 deaths and 450 injured.
All funds raised, except any GoFundMe processing fees, will be donated directly to the victims of the bombing to help pay for medical expenses. To provide general help and support to the families of the victims after this terrible crime.
The target is set to $500,000, hoping to exceed this goal and distribute funds among the casualties needing support.
The sooner we raise funds the faster we can support the victims affected by the devastating event.
My name is Ishini Weerasinghe, the sole organizer I will be contacting and working with close local authorities to make sure funds are allocated to victims and families.
I am looking for team members to help me with this Campaign. Looking for team members who are passionate about supporting beautiful Sri Lanka in this crisis. Please Email me at [email protected] if interested!
