Victim Support Europe paid tribute to the victims of terror attacks on the 2nd International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism.
European survivors, relatives and terror experts met today at a flower-laying ceremony organised by V-Europe in Brussels.
The ceremony was attended, among others, by the Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders, Federal Prosecutor of Belgium Frédéric Van Leeuw, Director of V-Europe Philippe Vansteenkiste and Deputy Director of Victim Support Europe Aleksandra Ivankovic.
This International Day reminds us that no matter how long ago an attack happened, victims continue to struggle with its legacy. We need to provide long-term, multi-faceted support to victims and survivors of terrorism, including through partnerships with governments and civil society, so that they can heal, recover, rebuild their lives and help others.
