Late Sunday night on Nov 12, 2017, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck Iran’s western province of Kermanshah. The epicenter was near the city of Sarpol-e zahab resulting in massive death and destruction. More than 500 people are confirmed dead and 9000 injured. The strong earthquake totally destroyed hundreds of houses and damaged many more in villages and small towns of Kermanshah province.

In the early hours after the earthquake help started pouring in from all over the country. Many NGOs were mobilized in addition to government agencies such as the Red Crescent to provide help to the victims. As in any other disaster, the needs vary from stage to stage beginning with food and shelter. Recognizing such needs our company bought, packaged and distributed 10,000 bottles of water, 10,000 cans of food, 10,000 packs of bread, 450 blankets, 100 tents, one ton of rice and one ton of date in small packs and 300 children winter jackets in earthquake stricken areas through the great work of our Kermanshah branch manager and staff. Later on, a paramedic team and company ambulance were dispatched to some of the most remote villages to distribute medicine and provide medical assistance.

With the financial contributions of Iran Assistance employees and friends we plan to take a more substantial project, such as rebuilding a medical clinic in one of the remote villages when the reconstruction phase begins.
