Fundraising for the families of 52 bus inferno victims
Have you ever imagined how sweet this life is while you are there still beathing and enjoying life?!
While we were having a good time on a Wednesday evening, on the other side of the world 57 men were en route to Russia in search of work to feed families back home. The bus, carrying 55 passengers and two drivers, was travelling along a remote road in the northwestern Aktobe region (Kazakhstan) when it burst into flames on Thursday morning (January 18, 2018). 5 people managed to escape and the remaining 52 died on the spot. They were all locked inside and burnt down in a mere 5 minutes after the bus was ablaze due to an explosion caused by a careless use of a blowtorch. Having survived one of the coldest nights in Kazakhstan territory, the 55 passengers had no other means but the blowtorch to heat up inside the bus. However... Mere 5 minutes, in which one does not even manage to finish his lunch, has taken 52 lives, causing unprecedented pain for a Central Asian nation. Here is a list of the deceased with their date of birth, home address and a passport number announced by Ministry of Emergency Situations in Uzbekistan: http://www.xabar.uz/jamiyat/qurbonlar-faqat-namangandan-emas
We, the volunteers based wordlwide, decided to make fundraising for the grief-stricken mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and other relatives of 52 men who were among us a little while ago, but faced an atrocious death in search of work... If you have children growing up, brothers and parents right beside you, try to imagine how painful the grief is for the families who lost the beloved in just 5 minutes of time... We intend to raise as much as possible with minimum of $1000 for each family who lost their sons and fathers. Raised funds will directly be sent to the team of volunteers in Uzbekistan who will be responsible to make sure the money reaches the victims' homes. Despite being not that much, this money will be of great assistance to the families who need to carry out funerals and other pertinent ceremonies in a couple of days' time.
Any donated dollar is much appreciated.. We wish we could do more than this for the relatives of the deceased.
