Let’s Not Forget Children in Flooded Regions of Sistan & Balouchestan
Amidst a flood of heartbreaking news, the flood of Sistan & Balouchestan province attracted attention to one of the most deprived areas of Iran once again. After years of struggling with drought, the hardworking people of Sistan & Balouchestan are now fighting to survive the heavy rainfall threatening their lives.
Children are most vulnerable in times of natural disasters and need special care. What will happen to children under such traumatic circumstances? What can we do?
The Institute for Research on the History of Children’s Literature has been active in this region through implementing the “Read with Me” program. The experts of the institute along with the teachers and tutors covered by the program devote themselves to aiding these children. Children should not be neglected.
We invite all Read with Me volunteers and enthusiasts to help provide safe spaces for reading, games and other activities for children in the flooded regions. We hope this can contribute to improving the emotional state and anxiety levels of children in Sistan & Balouchestan.
