Tehran, April 14, IRNA – The Islamic Revolution’s Guard Corps (IRGC) and some major Iranian popular and charities have set up a base to provide relief to 3.5 million less-privileged Iranian households to recover from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in the country.

Soon after the remarks of Ayatollah Khamenei, a meeting was held in which the IRGC commander and the heads of charitable institutions convened to set up a base in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade to provide relief to the less-privileged Iranian households as COVIC-19 continues in the country.  

The heads of Imam Khomeini relief foundation, Executive Headquarters of Imam's Directive, Mostazafan Foundation, Basij (volunteer forces) Organization, as well as the IRGC commander and the Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade were present at the meeting.    

They planned to send relief packages to some 3.5 million Iranian vulnerable households as the first step of their response to the pandemic.
