Rebekah lost three precious family members in the 2019 Sri Lanka Easter Attacks.

Victims of the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka say they have had no justice 18 months after the attack which killed more than 250 people and injured hundreds more.

Open Doors UK and Ireland, a charity which campaigns on behalf of persecuted Christians, says that as police investigations drag on, people are living with the effects of the attack.

A service at Zion Church whose members are now meeting in a temporary hall while their bombed building is being repaired.

Tala Dela Cruz, an Open Doors spokesperson said: “It is still so heart-breaking. Zion Church on the east coast of Sri Lanka lost 31 of its congregation – all of whom were mothers, husbands, children, brothers and sisters to people.

“Eighty-six other people at the church were injured. People are still receiving medical treatment with operations and physiotherapy and one or two are paralysed.

“Zion is only one church out of the three that were bombed on that day.

“Many more died from the attacks at St Anthony’s shrine and St Sebastian’s Church and at the three hotels. These targeted attacks have brought so much pain. We are still praying for justice for the victims and healing for their families.
