Support for the Rimal family

$15,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago

On Thursday, October 12, 2017 Yogeswari Khadka tragically lost her life in a brutal attack. Her mother was critically injured as well. Now, Yogeswari's father is raising his 8-year-old granddaughter.

The Rimal/Khadka family are Bhutanese refugees and have not been in the United States for very long. On top of having to raise his granddaughter in a foreign country, Grandpa also will have to pay for his daughter's funeral costs and wife's medical bills on a single low-income salary. He fears that he will not be able to afford rent or utilities as he will also be dealing with a lengthy criminal trial in hopes of bringing the attacker to justice and will most likely have to take a considerable amount of time off of work for appearances and not to mention grieving. Our hope is to raise a minimum of $15,000 to try and alleviate some of his woes. Please donate what you can- even $1 helps. Thank you.
