Over 2,100 homeless people have been provided warm shelters since Saturday in Tehran, after the temperature dropped several degrees and a white blanket of snow covered most of the city’s neighborhoods. “People are of great help in such situations and call to inform us of the location of a dispossessed person out in the cold,” said director of the municipality’s social services department, urging everyone to use the hotline 137 to report cases of people in need of warm shelters overnight. In addition to those who voluntarily visited the “warm homes” to spend the night, 10 buses and 10 vans were sent around the city to pick up deprived people. Mosques are also urged to open their doors to the homeless on humanitarian grounds during the cold winter nights, Mizanonline reported.
