No doubt, the 9/11 incident was a complete shocker for all of us, with thousands of deaths and countless number of injuries; it remains one of the most horrific disasters in the country’s history. Having to see this horrific incident brought millions of people together with the intent for helping the victims, and so far there have been thousands who have been helped and are now living peacefully in their homes, but many still remain who require our help, such as the many people who suffered serious injuries and are admitted in the hospitals even today. Although over 14 years have passed, we must not forget the people who suffered, and must make every effort to help them even today. Here are 5 ways how you can still help the victims of the 9/11 incident.
Remember the Victims
One way to help the victims is to keep remembering the stories of those who have left us. Pray that they rest in peace and remember how they used to contribute to the society by doing their part. This included many of the firefighters who lost their lives while trying to save the injured people from the incident. For this purpose, in 2014 a museum was built based on the theme of the events of 9/11 incident, where until now about 3 million people have already made a visit.
Connect With the Victims of 9/11
One way to help the victims is to connect with them one to one. An organization which was established to help the children who lost their parents during the world trade center incident, Tuesday’s children is still working to connect the children from all parts of the country, in order to help them with their lives. The main purpose of the organization is to support them in any way possible, and you can also do the same by connecting with them, by funding the organization through charity, by talking to them, because helping them is the best that we can offer.
Donate For Scholarships for Children
Apart from the children who lost their families during the incident, there are many of those children as well who’s parents have been deeply traumatized or have been seriously wounded which has made them unable to go to work. For those families, college fees can be a real challenge. One way we can help is by offering funding for those children, so that they can study with no worries and later get a good job so that they can support their families. One way to donate is to send the funds to some organization, such as the families of freedom scholarship fund.
Support Those Who Have Gone to Help Others
After the incidents of 9/11 took place, several people volunteered to help the country regain its strength and rebuild itself by joining the services. The best we can do is help their families with their finances, and also support them in any way possible
Help the Affected First Responders
Many people died during the incident, some of which also included the first responders, but since some of them were not injured or dead during the first 96 hours of the incident they were not offered help by the government. For this purpose, several private organizations were created to help the families of these people. The best we can do is to also donate to these organizations, so the families can get all the help they deserve.
