Relief for Afghan Victims

“Please give me some water, I am burning” are words we heard from an Afghan asylum seeker burned alive in Iran. Children Without Borders is horrified by the recent incident of 14 Afghan asylum seekers burned in Iran. These innocent civilians had left for Iran to work under terrible conditions, away from their loved ones, to earn some money to feed their children and families. While they never made it to work, they were burned alive after the Iranian police opened fire on their car as a result of which 3 of them died and 8 who are badly injuredare cruelly handcuffed in an Iranian hospital. This is a matter of human rights, of discrimination, and of obvious racism. We want you to join us in helping these victims and their families. CWB has identified the victims’ families - who live in extreme poverty and uncertainty. Our volunteers in Afghanistan have met them and we are able to deliver every single cent you donate to this noble cause. These asylum seekers are most likely to be deported back to Afghanistan as soon as the mainstream media forgets their case because they are so-called ‘undocumented’ and ‘illegal’ in Iran. The money you will donate will help with the cost of their funeral expenses for those who lost their lives and for the immediate medical care of those severely injured. We encourage you to remember their innocent children and their needs too. Kids who were waiting for their parents to call them from Iran once they get there - a call they might have never received. While you make a donation to help we also encourage you to ask for justice through social media, calling on the Iranian embassy in the country you live, and pushing for accountability. Afghan refugees in Iran have tolerated all inequalities but enough is enough, stand against this cruelty of your brothers and sisters, just like you stand for other amazing causes, we count on your support to stand for this one as well. Donate to give these refugees the water they asked for. Make a difference in their lives. Share this with all your friends and family.
