Thanks all for your contributions.
Wanted to share an update with you all.
Initially the plan was to transfer the funds to kcabc.org and then kcabc will handover the funds to the authorized representative of Nijin.
But there was a delay in doing so, and in order to avoid any further delays, we'll be transferring the funds directly to Jophin Challackal who has been authorized by George Johnkutty(Nijin's dad) to carry over the formalities in Canada and repatriation to India.
Once again thank you everyone for supporting and donating generously.
Thanks!
