Iranian Red Crescent Society ready to help


Pir Hossein Kolivand, Head of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has said they are ready to send medicine and physicians to Sri Lanka.

Kolivand was speaking at a meeting with the Sri Lankan Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Iran G.M.V. Wishwanath Aponsu, adding that the IRCS, in line with its high humanitarian goals, is able to offer aid after reviewing Sri Lanka’s pharmaceutical needs.

If the Sri Lankan Administration declares a need and considers a place for providing services, the IRSC can dispatch its health team, which includes volunteer medical personnel, to an underprivileged area of the country for some time and provide visits, medicines, and treatment services for patients.

Sri Lankan Envoy Aponsu said Iran is a manufacturer of medicines and medical equipment, and sought IRSC’s support.
