In order to identify those families most in need of assistance, the Red Crescent teams meticulously assessed the situation.
Ultimately, these 300 households were provided with emergency accommodation in local mosques, where they received essential items like food parcels and tents to help them through this difficult time.
In addition to ensuring proper shelter, the Red Crescent aid workers also worked tirelessly to pump out water from the affected homes.
Recognizing the gravity of the situation, relief teams were dispatched from the neighboring province of Ardabil to supplement the efforts in Astara.
It was on Monday, 18th September, when the city of Astara endured a prolonged period of heavy rainfall, which ultimately led to the massive flooding.
