Iran's Red Crescent Society has started a scheme to support the residents of the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan whose livelihood has been severely affected by a lingering drought. 
The initiative involves providing water, food and medical care for the people. 
According to Mahmoud Mohammadinasab, secretary general of IRCS, tankers with proportionate capacities for the population of villages are being installed in cooperation with the local offices of the Water and Wastewater Organization to supply a per capita quota of 20 liters per day.  
"Long-term drought has derailed farming, animal husbandry and fishing which were once booming businesses in the region," he was quoted as saying by ISNA.
