The international student attacked last week at a Kelowna bus stop has released a statement.
Gagandeep Singh, 21, posted a comment on the now deactivated GoFundMe.
The last few days have been very difficult for me. I am at home resting and recovering from the attack.
I really appreciate the support across Canada from everyone. The comments in the GoFundMe page and the outpouring of support has reminded me of why I came to Canada.
Thank you for your donations over the last two days, they are above and beyond what I ever imagined.
The fundraiser reached over $22,000 before closing to donations.
