Help victims of Sri Lanka bombings

$9,504 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 120 people in 3 months
Created April 30, 2019

-Incident and Current situation-

As you may already know, Sri Lanka has been rocked by the recent Easter Sunday suicide bombings, which left hundreds of deaths. At least, 250 people were killed and over five hundred wounded in these series of cowardly attacks.

The calm of Easter Sunday was shattered by gruesome bombings which killed innocent civilians by making it one of the horrific days in recent history.

As per our recent conversation with some villagers in the Negombo area, there are some families who require immediate financial support. Therefore, we have created an event together with fund raising campaign. The goal of this campaign is to provide with some financial support to at least 3 selected families who are severely affected by these tragic events.


-Organizing Team-

Doctors in Geelong VIC, we are deeply saddened by the tragic event that unfolded in the hometown where our relatives live. Hence, we decided to put up this fundraiser to support the families impacted by this tragedy.


- Dispersing of Funds-

The families who need immediate financial support will be selected by  the leadership of a Katuwapitiya church in Negombo and the members of Doctors Group in Geelong will be responsible for the distribution of funds to the affected families.  All funds raised, except any GoFundMe processing fees, will be donated directly to the victims of the bombing to help support people affected.  (please note that we will keep posting every detail of this project on our FB event page and fundraiser page and do not hesitate to post your questions, comments, and thoughts on the page)

The target is set to $5 000, hoping to exceed this goal and support more victims affected by this tragic event.

Thank you to kindhearted people who reached out to help, even small donation will make a big difference.

Barwon Health Geelong Hospital staff were in for a tasty treat on the 7th of May as part of a fundraiser for families in Sri Lanka affected by the Easter Sunday bombings. A group of five emergency doctors organized the lunch, enlisting the help of Crunchy Hoppers to make crispy Sri Lankan hoppers – for staff to enjoy in their lunch-break while donating to the cause. It was a huge success and nearly $3000 was donated by Barwon Health Geelong Hospital staff.
