Neighbour has raised thousands for man who lost his daughter in the Utrecht attack

Martje Beniest-Kleppe has raised almost 60,000 euros through a fundraising campaign for her neighbour who lost his daughter Roos in the Utrecht attack. A truly wonderful thing to have done in someone’s time of need.

The fundraising campaign only began yesterday, where Martje only asked for a small contribution for her neighbour. In that short space of time, hundreds of people have raised an incredible 60,000 euros already.

In his campaign, she says that his neighbour is single and lived with his daughter. Therefore, you can see why the neighbour stepped in to try and help. His loss will not only cause a lot of distress and heartache, but there’s a lot to worry about financially.

In his campaign he writes:

“He can use this money for all the bills that come to him by arranging everything as nice and as good as possible for his daughter’s farewell. Will you help me by sharing this and preferably by making a small contribution?”

Despite the awful, awful news emerging, this selfless act really warms your heart.

3 people lost their lives in the Utrecht attack including 19-year-old Roos from Vianen and two men from Utrecht aged 28 and 49.
