Introduction

Since the beginnings of the series of destructive floods all over Iran in spring 2019, Read with Me experts have been attempting to evaluate the possibilities and conditions to organize a program for helping flooded regions, utilizing their 2-year long experience among children shaken by the Kermanshah earthquakes.

Taking its former experiences with children in crisis into account, the “Read with Me” program introduced two major phases for helping children and families struggling with flooding.

Short-term:

Dispatching trained volunteers with Book Backpacks and Book Packages to flooded regions during the initial days and weeks of flooding with the purpose of Bibliotherapy through Reading Aloud quality books, having dialogue with children and carrying out various book-related activities, in order to help them cope better with the emotional pressures of this crisis.

Long-term:

Continuous training workshops for volunteers, tutors and residents of flooded regions as well as establishing child-centered libraries as lasting reading bases for children and their families.
