THE family of murdered British diplomat Rebecca Dykes have launched a charity to carry on her humanitarian work.
The 30-year-old was killed in Beirut while she was working for the Department for International Development.
Her fund will support refugees, with a particular focus on preventing violence against women.
The family, from Herefordshire, said: “Becky worked tirelessly to make the world a kinder, fairer, safer and more stable place.
We want to ensure that this work continues in her name.”
They hope her Just-Giving page will raise £100,000 in her memory.
An Uber driver aged 30 is reported to have admitted attempting to rape her before strangling her with a rope.
Her family also said they had been “overwhelmed” by the messages of support.
