Emergency in Iran, Action Against Hunger is Already Helping in the Area of Earthquake Devastation

Early this morning, an earthquake shook the province of Kerman in southeast Iran. As soon as Action Against Hunger heard about the disaster, a team of relief professionals traveled from Bam to Zarand, the area of the earthquake, to evaluate the most urgent needs of victims and to organize emergency assistance.

The area of the disaster is located 250 kilometres from Bam, where Action Against Hunger has been present since December 2003, when an earlier earthquake devastated the area and left more than 40,000 dead and thousands injured.
