Iran flood has affected no less than 10 million people.
Iran’s population in 2019 is roughly standing at 82 million, and with 10 million people getting effected that’s more than 12 percent of the total population.
The total damage due to the unprecedented flood has caused damages to the tune of $2.5 billion while no less than 75 people lost their lives after torrential rains.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani accused the USA government of being vicious and inhuman for letting economic sanctions continue despite the tragedy of such magnitude.
In such a situation, India is lending a helping hand to a neighbor and friend.
Interestingly the aid for Iran flood being delivered is being done in the name of people of India.
India and Iran have been trying to strengthen the people-to-people connection for long and this is a heartwarming gesture for sure.
India’s first consignment of 18 tonnes of flood relief material for Iran contains blankets, tents, dehydrated foods, hygiene kits. The consignment was delivered on April 17th at the Imam Khomeini International Airport.
