The Dutch-Afghan doctor Seyed Qaderi is committed to helping the victims of the terrible earthquake in the west of Afghanistan, his native region. More than 2,000 people were killed, 9,000 were injured and 1,300 homes were completely destroyed. There is hardly any help available and that is why he takes action.
Seyed Qaderi is a urologist in training in Nijmegen and received a call from family on Saturday morning, they told him that there was an earthquake in his birthplace Herat, located in the Afghan province of the same name. Everyone had taken refuge in the open air. Residents of Herat were shocked by an earthquake with a magnitude of up to 6.3 yesterday morning, followed by a series of heavy aftershocks.
As a doctor, Seyed has been working in Afghanistan for years through the MCAN foundation, together with other Afghan-Dutch doctors. He has many relatives who personally experienced the earthquakes in Herat. There is an urgent need for food, drinking water, clothing, tents and (basic) medical care.
Today, the MCAN foundation, in collaboration with the Keihan foundation, is launching an aid campaign for earthquake victims. Heart for Afghanistan supports this action. Money is raised to distribute emergency aid such as food, clean drinking water, sleeping bags and tents to those affected and to contribute to (basic) medical care where necessary.
