Beslan charity efforts

Countries and charities around the world donated to funds set up to assist the families and children that were involved in the Beslan school hostage crisis. As of the end of 2004 the International Foundation For Terror Act Victims had raised over $1.1 million with a goal of $10 million.

The Israel government offered help in rehabilitating freed hostages. Immediately after, an experienced Israeli trauma team was sent to Beslan and later Russian psychologists working with the victims of the massacre received help on training by Israeli experts in Israel.

The Beslan town council, itself having organised a charity fund, announced that it would donate $36,000 to aid the victims of the December 26, 2004, Indian Ocean Earthquake. The council stated that "The whole world reacted to our tragedy, so we cannot remain indifferent either".

In August 2005, two new schools in Beslan have been built and paid for by the Moscow government.

During Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov's visit to China in November 2005, the Chinese Health Ministry announced that they were sending doctors to Beslan, and offered free medical care to any of the victims who still needed treatment.

The then mayor of Croatia's capital Zagreb, Vlasta Pavić, offered a free vacation to the Beslan children on the Adriatic Sea.

In 2006, King Abdullah of Jordan invited the Beslan surviving students to spend their fall holiday in Jordan.
