Sympathy, donations, and medical relief from different organizations and NGOs relived the burden of distress and grief for Kermanshah.

Especial thanks to “Relief International organization and “Humedica International AID” from Germany and “Norwegian Refugee Council” that helped “Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences” and the “Ministry of Health and Medical Education” of Iran by providing medical services to post-earthquake survivals.
