Currently, Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) runs 1,050 Khaneh Helal’s across the country.
The centers have been established to penetrate all walks of the society, expand education, promote community resilience, and encourage people to build cities and villages after natural disasters and incidents.

They are launched in the buildings provided by rural municipalities or by city councils. Khaneh Helal may even be established in a mosque or every place which Iranian Red Crescent’s volunteers and benefactors supply for the Red Crescent.
These centers are aimed at recruiting and organizing people as well as providing training for the general public and mobilizing specialized teams and equipping them to confront disasters or accidents, and prepare for them.
Furthermore, youth clubs and voluntary groups are formed in the centers. Activities of these centers are training-oriented and offer the best opportunity to promote public training which is one of the main mandates of the Iranian Red Crescent.
