Through this video, she requested her fans and followers to unite and help the victims of the bomb blast attack. The motive is to help rebuild their lives through an organisation called Trail that she has joined hands with for the cause. She said" Let's put aside nationality and caste and ethnicity and religion, and come together as one. I'd like to say, let's not give up on humanity. Let's not allow fear and anger to dictate how we react and how we fell and what we're thinking."

On April 21 this year, three Christian churches in Sri Lanka and three luxury hotels in Colombo, the capital were targeted with a series of coordinated terrorist suicide bomb blasts. Later, the same day, there were smaller explosions too at a housing complex in Dematagoda and Dehiwala, making it a total of eight bomb blasts in the island. National Thowheeth Jamaath is said to be held responsible for the attacks, which is a radical Islamist group.

To end it in support for the country and quote Jacqueline, "Sri Lanka, please stay strong, stay positive, and most importantly please stay united."
