GoFundMe Page Created For Brampton Family Following Airline Tragedy
The entire Brampton community is reeling, in the aftermath of the Ethiopian Airline tragedy which saw a family of six die in the crash.
The Brampton victims include Pannagesh Vaidya (73), Hansini Vaidya (67), their daughter Kosha Vaidya (37), Kosha’s husband Prerit Dixit (45) and their two young girls, 14-year-old Ashka and 13-year-old Anushka.
The page was set up for Hiral, family member of the six victims, by her Dispatch/CSR team, in order to lift some of the heavy financial burden the tragedy would bring.
The page is currently taking donations, and has a set goal of $5,000.
Many public figures and organizations came out to express their thoughts and prayers to the Brampton family killed in the crash such as Mayor Patrick Brown and the Peel District School board.
