Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has praised the work done by the Kevin Bell Reparation Trust.
The Brandywell councillor said:
“The Kevin Bell Reparation Trust provides an invaluable service to families during their deepest time of need when they receive the devastating news that a loved one has been killed or died tragically abroad.
“I salute the work of Kevin Bell’s family, their friends and the trust’s volunteers for the great work and the practical and emotional support they offer.
“Since its inception in 2013 the Kevin Bell Reparation Trust has helped bring home the bodies of over 230 Irish citizens.
“They continue to be shining example to us all.”
