The Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRN), Canada has launched a “Go Fund Me’ campaign to raise funds to repatriate the bodies of two Nepali students recently killed in a road accident.

The NRN Canada on February 14 called an emergency board meeting and decided to raise a fund of $50,000 for the repatriation of the bodies and the treatment of the injured.

“At the request of the deceased students' families to repatriate their bodies to Nepal, NRN Canada convened an emergency board meeting on February 14, 2024, and has decided to launch a "Go Fund Me" campaign to raise funds. The goal is to collect $50,000, with an estimated $20,000-$30,000 earmarked for repatriation costs and the remainder allocated to assist the injured students with their needs,” reads the press note issued by the NRN Canada.

Extending deepest sympathies to the grieving families, the global organization in the press note appeals to the community for any assistance they can provide during this difficult time.

Two Nepali students died and six others sustained injuries in a car pile-up in Ontario, Canada in the early hours of February 13, 2024.
