His Majesty King Abdullah II
King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
Your Majesty,
On behalf of the Norooz Foundation, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to humanitarian assistance and decree for 651 Iranian refugees at No Manís Lands (Al-Karameh).
Your kind decree was greatly appreciated by the Iranian community worldwide especially by His Majesty Reza Pahlavi II and Her Majesty Shahbanou Farah Pahlavi.
Since May 28th, 2005, all of the 651 Iranian Kurdish refugees have been interviewed and resettled to New Zealand, Australia, UK, Ireland, Sweden and Canada.
Unfortunately, 29 families or 194 people have been left behind the border. Half or 99 are children under 12,. They are immediate relatives of the 651 which left Jordan. They fled Al-Tash camp in Ramadi, Iraq and arrived at the border on January 11th, 2005.
I have visited them on four occasions with the assistance of Interior Ministry and UNHCR. They are living in very poor conditions, without food or water, begging truck drivers for water in this hot weather.
Majorities of these refugees have immediate families in Sweden; we have already approach Sweden government & their Migration Board, to consider interviewing these families upon arriving to Al-Ruweished, if UNHCR made a request.
As 43rd direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), we appreciate your Majesties decree to permit these 29 families to enter your Jordan temporarily at Al- Ruweished refugee camp, so they can be interview by UNHCR for resettlement.
Your Majesty, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for all your humanitarian assistance to Iranian refugees and request an audience to discuss this humanitarian mater.
With Respect & Sincere gratitude,
Bahman Maalizadeh
President & Founder
