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.

On Sunday, March 10, the Ethiopian Airline flight was headed to Nairobi, Kenya when it unexpectedly crashed. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Other organizations came out to express their sentiments towards the loss of the 157 Canadian passengers in total, including a delegation of young students headed to Nairobi to represent Canada.

If you would like to make a donation, the link to the GoFundMe page can be found here.
