Members of the surviving families of each of the 22 victims killed in the Manchester Arena bombing on May 22, 2017, will each receive £250,000. The money is part of a fund that was setup for the victims and all contributions came from members of the public. Among those families are a little 12-year-old girl and her older sister, these young girls lost both their parents in the attack. Patrycia and Alex Klis will receive £250,000 each after their parents were killed in the blast while waiting to pick them up outside of the concert. It was a senseless, sudden and tragic attack that left dozens of families broken and hundreds more injured.

The bomber was 22-year-old British Muslim Salman Ramadan Abedi who had crafted a homemade, shrapnel-laden bomb and planted it at the exit of the Manchester Arena in England. The bomb itself was packed with nuts and bolts to serve as deadly shrapnel. A total of 14,200 people attended the concert and the bomb killed people who were yup to 60 feet away. Abedi carried the bomb in a backpack and was killed as soon as he detonated it.

In addition to the families of the 22 victims, 57 more people who received injuries in the suicide bombing have so far received £60,000 each from the We Love Manchester fun. This fund is expected to reach between £16 and £17 million. Although this bombing shows how dark an act a single human being is capable of, it also highlights the extreme good that people are capable of when so many people banded together and contributed to the victims.
