Indian international student Sumedha came to Melbourne in 2017 to pursue her Australian dream.
Sumedha recently moved to Perth to find some better job opportunities. However, unfortunately, she lost her life in a drowning accident in Perth.
Dishima Bansal and Nikhil Bansal who were friends with Sumedha for the last six years have organised a fundraiser to send her body back home.
“She was 21 years old and was a very lovely girl. We are raising money to help her family to have Sumedha’s body to perform her last rituals. This is the only chance for them to see her for the last time as they haven’t met her from past 6 years.”
The friends are requesting the Indian-Australian community to help them raise the $25,000 to send Sumedha’s body back to her parents.
They are collecting funds to pay travel expenses and other associated costs.
The friends add:
“We will appreciate your support and prayers for her family. May her soul rest in peace and her family get the strength to bear the loss of their only daughter.”
The two friends are representing Sumedha’s family in Australia for completing all the formalities to send the body back to India.
