Braving difficult conditions, a group of Kashmiri volunteers along with some Iranian youngsters under the banner of Ehsaas International have set an example of brotherhood and humanity, by working tirelessly to help people in flood-hit Lorestan province of Iran. Selflessness and commitment of Kashmiri volunteers in lending a helping hand to needy people is always evident, as has been in case of Iran’s Lorestan, setting aside their ideological preferences, cultural affiliations or religious background. Despite having limited sources their eagerness to help flood affected families has proved to be exemplary. Their dedication and selflessness has been highly appreciated by everyone concerned. It is pertinent to mention here that the fundraising campaign was started by a Kashmiri non-political organisation, Ehsaas International, this month and people from every quarter are contributing in this relief and rehabilitation mission. The Project is implemented in Association with Tehran based organisation International Union of Unified Ummah and supported by SOLID foundation from Italy.
There were at least 55 schools destroyed due to devastating floods in Lurestan province alone. The situation necessitates reconstruction of schools to ensure that no child would lag behind in education and would keep attending school. In the first instance, our team has restored a few schools, which were severely damaged by flash floods. We at Ehsaas International believe that humanity is not limited by borders nor by affordability. It is all about ‘EHSAAS’(meaning care and respect in Urdu language) for human beings and human values. The need of the hour is to reach different corners of the world and participate in whatsoever means one can ,be it Palestine or Yemen, Chennai or Muzaffar Nagar UP, Nepal or Kerala, Hakim Mohd Ilyas, Gen. Secretary Ehsaas International ,added.
