Raising donations for Iran’s earthquake
“The border region between Iran and Iraq experienced the deadliest earthquake to date in 2017. The 7.3-magnitude earthquake is estimated to have killed between 530 and 580 people and injured another 7,460.
Most of the reported casualties are in Iran’s western province of Kermanshah, nearby the epicenter of the earthquake. Search efforts are underway in the region, with rescue workers digging through rubble in an attempt to find any missing people.
The earthquake damaged the main hospital in the town of Sarpol-e Zahab that is being used to treat the thousands of wounded victims. In addition, it is estimated that 70,000 people in total will need some sort of shelter as a result of the earthquake’s damage. Unfortunately, the damage was widespread given most of the homes in the Kurdish mountains are made from mud bricks and are not best suited to withstand an earthquake.”
The Earthquake in the west of Iran caused devastating destruction.Your donations will provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support any necessary relief and recovery efforts for the injured and unsheltered people.
The donations will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, non-profit organizations responding to this disaster.
The donations are managed and distributed by organizations that are deeply-rooted and widely acclaimed in Iranian Local communities. Such organizations also provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like Earthquakes. By funding the relief efforts of organizations in Iran, there’s potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. Iran Blockchain Community will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
