ICCNC: The ICCNC Board of Directors has issued a statement conveying sympathy for the victims of the earthquake in the west of Iran.
Read the text of the statement below.
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Human beings are members of a whole,
In the creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain
Heartbreaking images of the earthquake damages and loss of human lives in the western provinces of Iran is a big reminder to us all, about the vulnerability of human life when it comes to natural disasters.
