Unfortunately, on Sunday 12 November 2017, a quake was felt in the Kurdish areas(Kurdistan) of Iran and Iraq. The epicenter was near the city of Salas Bawajani in Kermanshah province, having preliminary magnitude of 7.3. It was the biggest quake to hit the Kurdish regions both in Iran and Iraq.

Up to now, at least 600 people were killed and 7,460 people were injured, and tens of thousands of people have become homeless who are under severe conditions as the cold season is approaching in that mountainous region. The surviving families need help urgently.

The New Zealand Kurdish Community have therefore organised many fundraising activities including this campaign, with the support of a number of organisations. They wish to send this message to the affected people in Kurdistan that they are not alone.

As New Zealanders, we understand the devastating and heartbreaking impacts of earthquakes.

New Zealand stands by you as we truly believe we are all part of one human community and this earthquake is a common agony for all of us.

With the busy lives that we all lead today, it can be difficult to help with time and other resources. At least with Helping Kurdistan, I know that my donation is being used to help those in need as the projects as well as their outcomes are always transparent.

Donating my time and skills to Helping Kurdistan has been an opportunity for me to really understand the lives of those who are struggling just to exist. I will continue to donate my time and skills to HKT, they are a charity that speaks for me and for what I believe in.

Being so far away and watching what people are going through is very hard to deal with, so I decided to donate to a charity who allow me to feel good about helping out. They keep me up to date about where the donations have gone and send me pictures of when the necessities have been received by the refugees. It feels good to be able to contribute towards a crisis happening miles away.
