Urgent Appeal for support in helping Iranian earthquake victims

By Pervinder Singh Chandhok, Tehran
On behalf of the Indian Diaspora, I  wish to convey  heartfelt condolences to our Iranian brothers and sisters for the the worst tragedy of earthquake in Bam. Everyone is shaken with this cruel act of Nature.
As an Indian National Sikh born in Tehran, Iran,Tehran my heart out goes to the people of Bam and in this process I have joined the Millions who are trying to help the people in need.I am duty bound to appeal your kind consideration that the need of hour is Rehabilitation of the people who are homeless and the innocent Children who have become orphans.
I am sure the brave people of Iran would overcome this hour of testing and the most difficult job at this time is Rehabilitation of the people left homeless. It is credit worthy that enitre humanity has joined in this relief operation opening a new era of dialogue among civilizations sharing the pain of each other. No two countries are as closer as India and Iran.
The People of India and the Government of India have rushed aid to Iran worth Million of Dollar and also set up a 75 bed full fledged field hospital at Bam which is fully equiped.The pictures of the Hospital are enclosed for your information.We need your support to convey through all your channels in Iran and abroad that this Hospital is geared to serve the People of Iran in Bam and it services could be used to the maximum level for the people of Bam.We need support to spread this word through various people to people contact and NGOs as the contact and information through other channels is not sufficient.We wish the people of that Area to get the best services and attention from our the Indian Brothers and Sisters who are here to help them  

It is worthwhile to share with you an example of sharing suffering of humantiy. This is absolutely incredible - Indian Social worker & Saint Puran Singhs legacy carried to victims of Iran Earthquake. Pingalwara an organisation from Punjab,India that was set up by him and relies on charity to carry out its work is responding to the needs of victims. This must be the first in the world whereby a charitable organisation which itself  in need of charity for it survival has made this very noble gesture. Lets all humanity and organisations follow the example and donate. The victims are in many cases fellow human beings who have lost a lifetimes work in one moment generated by the elements of the earth.

I hope by Grace of God and the contribution of all the volunteers  and the support from you,we could help in this disaster relief operations to our brotherly people of Iran in every manner possible.
It would be my honour to associate with you in the aid process and keep close contact ,
with warm regards
