Rebecca Dykes was killed in Lebanon, on December 16, 2017, aged 30.

This page has been created by Rebecca’s family and friends, to raise funds for a new foundation in her name. This foundation will have the aim of continuing Rebecca’s humanitarian and stabilisation work for refugees and other vulnerable communities, with a particular focus on women’s empowerment and preventing violence against women.

About Rebecca:

Rebecca was compassionate, caring and committed to humanitarian causes. She worked tirelessly to make the world a kinder, fairer, safer and more stable place.

Most recently, she had undertaken pioneering work in Lebanon, for the UK Department for International Development, to improve the lives of refugees and impoverished Lebanese people, and help these vulnerable communities to become more peaceful and resilient.

Previously, she volunteered for VSO in Bahrain, worked on conflict and stabilisation issues across a range of sub-Saharan African countries, covered gender and conflict in Iraq, and worked on the stabilisation of Libya.

As well as being a dedicated humanitarian worker, Rebecca was a colleague, a friend, a daughter, a sister and aunt.

Your donations will help us build the better world that Rebecca believed in.
