The Bayat Foundation Provides Relief for Afghan Avalanche

  1. 1. The Bayat Foundation Provides Relief for Afghan Avalanche By Ehsanollah Bayat
  2. 2. Introduction • In the spring of 2015, a massive avalanche caused serious damage in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Province, located about 60 miles from Kabul. To fund immediate assistance for those impacted by this disaster, the Bayat Foundation donated $100,000. Ehsanollah Bayat, who established the organization, allocated the funding to support emergency relief operations for as long as they are needed. He also hopes that the funding can improve general conditions and increase access to the region for more effective aid delivery in the future. Mr. Bayat’s mobile telephone company, Afghan Wireless Communication Company, also speeded relief efforts by deploying mobile base stations and networking equipment.
  3. 3. Relief for Afghan Avalanche • This equipment will improve communication with the remote villages located in Panjshir Province, many of which remain cut off by roadblocks caused by heavy snow. These villages are also threatened by the possibility of more avalanches. Individuals interested in supporting emergency relief efforts for the people living in Panjshir Province can make donations directly through the foundation online at BayatFoundation.org. The website also has information on the other important Afghan aid projects spearheaded by the organization.
