The government of Japan will extend a $2.5 million Emergency Grant Aid to Iran for damage caused by the floods that devastated the country at the beginning of the current Iranian year (started March 21).
The decision was conveyed to President Hassan Rouhani by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during the Iran-Japan meeting in Tehran on June 12, according to a press release posted on the website of Japan’s Embassy in Iran on Sunday.
The press release outlines where and how the grant may be spent, saying the Emergency Grant Aid is aimed at providing humanitarian assistance in the areas of WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), protection for vulnerable people, health, education and early recovery for the people affected by the floods.
