The Muslim community in the UK has come together to lead a campaign in support of the victims and their families of a terror attack outside Britain’s parliament.
The campaign – which aims to raise $12,000 – has already raised half the amount just hours after launching.
Funds raised by Muslims United for London will be used to support victims and victims’ families of the terror attack in Westminster on Wednesday in which four people died and 40 injured.
“The British Muslim community stands with the community during these difficult times and extends their support in raising funds to help with the immediate, short-term needs of the families of Keith Palmer, the other victims and the families of the victims,” a statement said on the website.
“While no amount of money will bring back lives lost or take away from the pain the victims and their families are going through, we hope to lessen their burden in some way.”
