The families of 12 burn victims from the Sheenabad school fire disaster staged a sit-in together with students in front of the president's office to protest the lack of financial support for their children's medical bills.

The father of one of the victims told Kordpa website that the Ministry of Education has not met its commitments regarding the cost of medical treatments for these students and the families will not return to Kurdistan without meeting President Rohani.

The father of victim Nadia Saleh said: "Many of these girls are in need of urgent care, and the hospital administration has told the families that they will not operate on them if the cost of the surgery is not paid up front."

Another parent told Kordpa that a Sheenabad Mosque official, Mr. Khezri, had promised fifty million rials toward the treatment of the students, but there has been no support at all for the treatment of these victims.

Last December, 37 students fell victim to severe burns when a heater in their elementary classroom in Sheenabad exploded. Two of the victims, Siran Yeganeh and Sarina Rasoulzadeh, died from their injuries.
