On Friday 20th of January, Nethra was returning from breast feeding her 8 month old baby at day care, when she was run over at a speed of over 80km/h in the Bourke St rampage. This was her first week back from Maternity Leave.
She sustained serious injuries, which include deep lacerations to her head, a punctured lung, damage to her liver and kidneys, as well as broken ribs and fractures to her spine in three different places.
Nethra was rushed to Hospital and underwent emergency surgery for several hours. She is presently in Intensive Care, in a critical but stable condition.
Given that Nethra and her family don't have any other relatives in Australia, this adds to the difficulty of her situation. With her husband by her bedside every day, the care of their baby is of utmost importance.
Nethra's baby is currently in the care of a work colleague, and some family friends, who are all doing as much as possible.
Given the severity of her injuries, Nethra will remain in hospital for quite some time, and following this will have a long road to recovery, both physically and psychologically.
Please help us to raise funds for this mum and her young family, during this unfathomably difficult time.
The community came together to help Nethra so much in the initial moments of the tragedy, and we asking for that to please continue.
All funds raised will go directly to Nethra and her husband.
Please share this campaign far and wide, so that others can also help.
