Victims of Iran's Devastating Floods Need Your Help
Human beings are members of a whole In the creation of one essence and soul
If one member is afflicted with pain Other members uneasy will remain
If you have no sympathy for human pain The name of human you cannot retain
Iranian Poet “Sadee”
Nationwide floods in Iran have killed at least 70 people and displaced tens of thousands of people in the past two weeks. More rain is forecast in the coming days.
Heavy rain began in mid-March in the northeastern province of Golestan, which received 70 percent of its average annual rainfall in one day. The flooding has steadily spread across the nation, inundating communities in at least 26 of Iran’s 31 provinces.
It has been reported that more than 140 rivers have burst their banks; 409 landslides have been reported; 78 roads have been blocked; and 84 bridges have been affected.
We at ICCNC are deeply saddened by the extent of damages and loss of lives by the recent floods in Iran. ICCNC will collect your financial donations and transfer them to "Child Foundation", a U.S. based non-profit. The Child Foundation is one of only a handful of organizations that is legally allowed to send humanitarian aid to Iran. They are working with staff on the ground to assess how best to provide aid, including in the long-term.
Please make your donations on-line or by mailing your checks payable to ICCNC with the note "Iran Flood Victims" in the memo. ICCNC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization your donations are tax-deductible.
