Disaster Relief for Iran’s Children Earthquake Victims
Rescue efforts are underway after a powerful earthquake struck Iran at 21.18 local time on November 12, killing at least 400 people, injuring more than 6,700 and leaving 70,000 homeless. Most of those who died were in the town of Sarpol-e-Zahab in Kermanshah and other parts of the province.
Iran’s Children Charity has set up this Disaster Emergency Fund Raising Appeal to help those children who are affected by this earthquake. Priority for the urgent needs would be assessed locally in coordination with the international organisations and other relief agencies. All donations for this appeal will be spent on the earthquake victims only and disseminated directly by our own team members.
So far, 12 tents along with other non-cash donation have been sent to Kermanshah for accommodating people.
Information about other donations will be announced soon.
