(JTA) — The family of two British-American Jewish teens killed in a terrorist attack in Sri Lanka are planning to set up a charity in their memories.

Amelie and Daniel Linsey, 15 and 19, were among the hundreds murdered in terrorist attacks targeting Christians in the south Asian island nation on April 21. The teens were vacationing with their father, Matthew, who survived the attack on their hotel.

The family is setting up a foundation to benefit the hospital in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo where the teens were taken.
