Muslims who work and volunteer for Human Appeal, the charity which raised £27,000 for the victims of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in May 2017,  gave out free bottles of water to people attending the screening of the memorial in Cathedral Gardens, Manchester on May 22.

In a statement to The Muslim News, Human Appeal’s Domestic Programmes Manager, Samra Said, said. “The £27,000 plus we helped raise last year in response to the horrific events at the Manchester Arena helped 187 people who were either caught up in the attack or were bereaved family members or friends. It helped pay for funeral costs, medical bills, emergency accommodation and psycho-social support for those affected.”

Community Fundraising Manager for the British Red Cross, Max Newton, who Human Appeal partnered with for Muslims for Manchester, said: “On behalf of the British Red Cross and the ‘We Love Manchester’ appeal, I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported Human Appeal and enabled them to donate an amazing £27,487.05 to help those affected by the terrible attack at the Manchester Arena. It is an incredibly kind and humanitarian act and it is truly inspiring to see so many people and organisations from all parts of society come together at this time.”
