Families of the Late Manchester Attack Victims to Receive Over $300,000 Each
There’s no amount of money that can make up for the loss of a loved one; no material object of any sort can replace a human life. But, one thing money can do is help ease the burden of the other difficult experiences that follow death, such as funeral costs. That’s why one charity made it its mission to fund the families of the victims of the Manchester attack.
Courtesy of the We Love Manchester Fund, the “next of kin” for each of the 22 victims of Ariana Grande‘s May 22 concert (including 10 children) in Manchester will each receive $324,000.
According to Councilor Sue Murphy (via The Guardian), “The city and the world responded with such extreme kindness, generosity and solidarity in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack. We will now spend some time looking at how we will distribute the rest of the funds. This will be a complex and sensitive process as we will need to assess the long-term impacts of the attack.”
The foundation reportedly topped more than $23 million in donations, so, in addition, the 57 individuals who spent more than a week in the hospital have been gifted $77,150 each, and the 96 people who between one-seven days in the hospital have been gifted $4,500.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
