The Trust operates on a 32 counties basis for all sides of the Irish community, regardless of creed, colour or circumstances of death. The help KBRT provides is invaluable to many families, as the costs to repatriate a loved one’s body can run up to €14,000 depending in the circumstance of the death, local charges and hospital release costs.
Since it was set up, the Trust has repatriated over 1,110 loved ones to their families in Ireland from countries worldwide such as Australia, Argentina, South Korea, USA, Canada, Ecuador, Cambodia, India, Uganda to name just a few. KBRT helps to repatriate approximately 15-20 loved ones back to Ireland per month.
You can help to raise funds for KBRT either by setting up your own fundraising event to generate donations, or you can donate directly to the trust itself on their website. They have several methods to make donations, which can be made in pounds or euros. For more information, see KBRT’s donation page.
