Narges Mohammadi is a prominent human rights defender, and mother of two in Iran. She’s currently languishing in a Tehran prison for peacefully defending human rights in her country.

In May 2015 Narges began serving a six-year sentence for her activism. The absurd charges included "spreading propaganda against the system" through her human rights work. This year, a new trial was held where she was sentenced to an additional 10 years for founding an anti-death penalty group.

Sadly, Narges is separated from her young twins who had to move abroad for the lack of a caretaker in Iran.

To make matters worse, Narges’ health is rapidly deteriorating. She suffers from a dangerous blockage in a blood vessel as well as a neurological disorder which requires specialised care.

Authorities continue to deny Narges proper medical attention which puts her in serious risk. Last year she suffered seizures and temporary paralysis as a result of her condition. This prompted authorities to send her to hospital, only to return her to prison just 17 days later against doctor’s orders.

Narges is in a critical state and needs your help.
