London: The Baloch Human Rights Council – BHRC has raised £2,500 an
equivalent of 137061774.93 Iranian Rial to pass along to relief organizations
helping the flood victims in western Balochistan.
The money was raised and will be passed on to the victims by the BHRC
President Dr Habibullah Malik and Jamshaid Amiri, the BHRC representative for western Balochistan.
The finance we have gathered is next to nothing if compared to the magnitude of damage been faced by the flood victims, however, it is a token of moral support to our brethren in Balochistan and our sincere thoughts are with them.
We are concerned that despite more than two weeks after the floods, the Iranian authorities have failed to mitigate the damages suffered by the people in men and material in Balochistan. This clearly shows the authorities do not treat the Baloch in the same way it treats the majority ethnicity in Iran. Once again, we appeal to the United Nations and the European Commission to directly intervene in this matter and rescue the people in need.
