Family of murdered British diplomat launch charity to carry on victim’s humanitarian work

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.” target=”_blank” title=”Click to share on Twitter
