International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President Andrew Parsons has expressed his appreciation to the Iranian Paralympic officials and athletes for supporting Mexico earthquake victims.
Mexico hit by a powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake in mid-September that killed more than 340 people.
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) postponed the World Para Swimming and World Para Powerlifting Championships which were due to begin in Mexico City on 30 September.
“Congratulations on the initiatives of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s NPC to Support the victims of the earthquake in Mexico. It is amazing to see the solidarity of the Paralympic Family with our Mexican brothers,” Parsons said in a letter sent to Iran’s NPC Secretary General Masoud Ashrafi.
“Please forward my gratitude to President Mr. Mahmoud Khosravi Vafa, your athletes and coaching staff,” the Brazilian added.
