From North to South, Barakat Foundation and Setad Rush to Help Iran’s Flood-Hit Areas

TEHRAN, Iran, April 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — As soon as the floods hit the Northern parts of Iran, the mobilization forces of the Headquarters for Executing Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO) known as Setad rushed to help the people who were struck by the floods and its consequences a few hours before marking Nowruz, the Iranian New Year. Some of these, who are mostly volunteers, rode in small boats to deliver necessary elements to the people stranded in the flood waters like fresh food, blankets, drinking water, and even toys for children to keep their hearts warm during such tough times. The Setad’s medical team set up temporary clinics to help treat the injured and deliver medicine and treatment to the sick. The Setad also provided 15,000 families with house equipment to replace what the floods had destroyed, such as fridges, washing machines, carpets, and other necessary elements. Many of these families living in rural areas raised cattle, where more than 9,000 of cattle were killed during the natural disaster. The Setad was able to replace 4,000 of these, instantly providing many of the families with their previous work so that they would not end up jobless. Most of the services of Setad are delivered through the Barakat Foundation.
