Iranian people join armed forces to aid flood-hit provinces
Tehran (KNA) - Iranian people from all walks of life are joining the government and the armed forces in a nationwide relief campaign to help thousands of fellow countrymen and women affected by historic floods in two northern provinces.
Over 56,000 people have been affected in various cities and rural areas in Golestan and Mazandaran as a result of heavy rainfall that hit the two provinces on March 19 and 20. The severe flooding has so far killed at least five people.
On Monday, Iranian social media users launched an online effort using the Persian hashtag #رفیق_گلستان_باشیم (Let’s be friends with Golestan) in coordination with the Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation (IKRF).
