11th Kyoto Animation Awards' Cancellation Confirmed

For surviving victims who were directly injured by the fire, Kyoto Animation has pledged that it will be providing their share of the donations in a single lump sum, as opposed to installments. However, the company will not be simply dividing the total donations by the number of affected employees and giving each recipient a uniform amount. Instead, it will be taking into consideration the specific circumstances of each individual. This process will include meeting with bereaved families, and taking into account the additional needs of households with children and/or in which the Kyoto Animation employee was the primary breadwinner, and are thus most adversely affected, financially speaking, by the employee’s death or work-preventing injuries.
