We believe that there is no different between human in color, race, ethnicity, religion for helping because all people are creators of God and we should save each other.
Constantly we have done some international actions in other countries specially in disasters.
Some international activities were done by Roshd Charity:
Today, an unprecedented 65.3 million people around the world have been forced from their home by wars, violence, drought and poverty. Among them are nearly 21.3 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. Iran is the 4th country in the world who hosted refugees. There are 979400 refugees in Iran. Many years of conflict and insecurity in Afghanistan has resulted in mass movements of entire families from Afghanistan to Iran. Most often girls did not get a chance to go to school and benefit from an education due to cultural barriers and traditions.
In 2016, more than 6,000 primary school refugee students under World Food Program assistance received educational packages consisting of notebooks, pens, pencils, eraser and pencil sharpener by support of Roshd Charity Foundation.
In addition, Roshd Volunteers and WFP representatives attended in Saveh Refugee settlement in May 2016. Stationery packages were distributed between students by volunteers and also children painted their dreams for us. Furthermore at the end of this program, Roshd Charity was appreciated by WFP in recognition of its efforts on helping refugee kids.
Famine in the Horn of Africa
Between July 2011 and mid-2012, a severe drought affected the entire Horn of Africa region. The drought caused a severe food crisis across Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya that threatened the livelihood of millions people that 3.7 million of them were in Somalia. Unfortunately more than 260,000 people lost their lives in Somalia that half of them were children. This crisis was exacerbated by civil wars. Roshd Charity collected some donation for supporting people of that areas. In addition to these supports we attended in Mogadishu to participate in some meetings for collecting more supports.
The Floods of Pakistan
The floods in Pakistan began in July 2010, resulting from heavy monsoon rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan regions of Pakistan, which affected the Indus River basin. Approximately 1/5 of Pakistan’s total land area was underwater. The floods directly affected about 20 million people, mostly by destruction of property, livelihood and infrastructure, and thousands of people lost their lives. Roshd Charity has participated in supporting programs for people who suffered from this disaster.
The Haiti earthquake
The Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake, it occurred in January 2010. It destroyed many cities and affected about 3 million people and more than 200,000 people have died in this disaster. United Nations believe that it was one of the most destructive disasters in the world. Roshd Charity has participated in supporting programs for people who suffered from this earthquake.
