Narges Casnajad, 50, and her seven-year-old son, Sepehr, were killed in the Lynn Valley townhouse blaze that also left 16 people injured. Casnajad’s 14-year-old son and husband survived the blaze.
Now, friends and community members are rallying behind the family to pay for funeral costs and other expenses.
“I’m making this page to raise money to cover their funeral expenses for [the family’s] lost ones being [the] mother and younger brother,” wrote fundraiser organizer Dorsa Pedroud on the GoFundMe Page.
“Also to help them rebuild their lives. I know that nothing is going to bring them back but that’s the least we can do for them.”
The GoFundMe page aims to raise $50,000 for the family. So far over $40,000 has been donated.
Another GoFundMe has been set up for all of the displaced victims.
