Tragedy struck in broad daylight and lives were lost, and far many more lives were impacted.
I implore any of you who witnessed or were implicated in any way to seek assistance and support, the images may stay with you for a long time and I want you to know you don’t have to cope on your own.
The Victorian Government set up a fund for the families affected by the incident and on 17th February, 2017, the Treasury Laws Amendment (Bourke Street Fund) Bill 2017 was passed by both Houses of Parliament. This ensures that donations made by the public are tax deductible.
If you wish to make a donation, please read the information at http://www.vic.gov.au/bourkestreet.html to see the instructions and to find out exactly what the funds will be used for.
