Challenge

Torrential rains in Iran have caused rivers to breach their banks, flooding hundreds of cities and villages, submerging homes and triggering landslides. The UN estimates that 10 million people have been affected and that as many as 2 million in Iran may be in need of some form of assistance. More than 70 people have been killed, hundreds more are injured and the floods have left hospitals and schools in ruins.

Solution

Through our emergency response we expect to reach more than ten thousand people at risk in Golestan, Kermanshah and Sistan and Baluchistan. By taking action now, your gift will help provide urgent assistance to the most vulnerable families. Our teams are assessing families' most urgent needs and, with your help, they will give the opportunity of basic services such as health, education, food security and sanitation to the most vulnerable.

Long-Term Impact

Support reconstruction of flood-ravaged communities in Iran on their path to recovery. Founded by a group of concerned individuals, Relief International was created in response to the 1990 Manjil-Rudbar earthquake in Iran, the country's worst natural disaster on record. Today, we remain one of the few international organizations authorized to operate in Iran.
