Victim Support Update: The last distribution of donated funds 28 June 2019
An update to all generous donors,
Yesterday, Victim Support announced the last distribution of donated funds to victims of the Christchurch Mosque Attacks.
Once again, we express our sincere thanks for the gift you have given to help those suffering such devastating grief and loss.
Your gift has not only touched the lives of the victims, but sent a strong message of unity and solidarity to the world. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Over four lump sum payments, your donations have now been used to provide amounts across four categories:
· $90,000 for each bereaved family
· $51,000 for each victim shot
· $34,000 to other victims injured
· $17,000 to other victims present in the mosques at the time of the attacks
We will be disbursing the final payments to victims from today.
In addition to the lump sum payments, $1.6 million was spent on victim grants to cover emergency costs like funerals, travel for family members, groceries, childcare, and more.
Finally, we will hold a small contingency to cover victims yet to be identified by Police. Any contingency not used by the first anniversary of the attacks will be handed over to the Christchurch Foundation for victims' long-term support.
