Srimal Weerasinghe Family House Fire

In the early hours of 24th September 2017, in Kegalle - Sri Lanka, Srimal and the Weerasinghe Family were woken up to the tragic and total of their home, commercial property & all other assets to a devastating fire.

Fortunately, all 7 members of the family ranging from a 5 year old boy to a paralysed Grandfather were rescued with minor burns and injuries.

They have completely lost everything starting with their family home to the main income that they were getting from the now brunt down commercial property. Now all they have are the clothes they had on their back.

So to help them out we are starting this gofundme page to try and get them back on their feet and help them in anyway we can.

With no insurance for the family home, they have to start fresh and need to replace all of their personal effects, clothes, find a place to rent, books and basic things for kids to go back to school and still fund 24/7 medical care to the paralysed Grandfather with no income at all.

We are asking you to please open your hearts in aiding this family with any amount of donation you can provide at this time. Any donation, big or small, will be incredibly appreciated as they try to cope with this dreadful loss .

Incident was on national news, please check the below link. Between 3min to 4.35 min mark.

Love, Bhagya Weerasinghe & the extended family.
