Our work in this area is focused on immediate relief, short-term relief and reconstruction, such as was the case following the 2017 Kermanshah earthquake where immediately following the earthquakes: (i) we distributed several tons of food and basic provisions, then (ii) reconstructed two rural health clinics and four pre-schools completely destroyed and fully furnished them; (iii) we are currently completing the reconstruction of six other pre-schools; (iv) we helped day centers and other preschools with mental health programs; (v) provided four mobile health units and offered other projects aimed at helping those affected.
Just recently, we distributed hundreds of standard and safe heaters in Sistan & Baluchestan province.

Our team in Iran has been assessing the flood damage.
Thousands of children and families have been displaced, lost their homes, businesses and livelihood. There has been major destruction in various provinces and as a result orphanages and centers for children with special needs have been destroyed. MAP will be, first, providing providing basic needs to the affected children and families in the following provinces: Mazandaran, Golestan, Fars (Shiraz), Lorestan and Kermanshah. We will then help with the reconstruction and repairs as needed, with a focus on repairing 42 pre-schools which have been severely damaged as well as several centers for special needs children and orphanages. Please also note that the need remains great as we continue to assess the situation. Unfortunately, the inclement weather continues. We will know more once the flood and rains subside!
We are grateful to everyone who has donated to this cause. This is a time of unity and global community, these people need our support! Please Don’t Hesitate to Help.
