The head of Iran’s Organisation for Mobilisation of the Oppressed, also known as Basij Mostazafin, says an aid program called Momenaneh is underway in the country to help the needy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brigadier General Gholamreza Soleimani said the aid program will continue until the end of the holy month of Ramadan, which is to start on Saturday in Iran.
3.5 million food and hygiene aid packages have been prepared for the first phase, and the second phase will be implemented in the second half of the holy month, he noted.
Speaking at an exercise in Shahr-e Rey in southern Tehran on Thursday, he said the coronavirus was a test for all nations of the world to test their solidarity.
Referring to the efficiency of the Islamic Republic establishment and the country’s healthcare system, Soleimani noted Iran’s actions in the field of treatment are admirable.
He also claimed that Iran is doing much better than Western countries like Germany in terms of equipment.
