The aim of the project was to support the 2019 flood victims in Golestan province. After preliminary investigations, RWB decided to extend financial support for construction of one house with area of 47 m2 , in Chin village, Agh Ghola. This project was executed in collaboration with Golestan Ehsan charity organization, and participation of the help-seeker in the construction work.
Following the 2019 flood in Golestan province and ten days of inundation in the Turkmen Sahra region, many residential buildings of Turkmens were massively damaged. Due to the poor construction foundation and humid climate, after some years the resilience of most of these houses diminished the houses became more vulnerable to natural disasters such as floods. Ten days of inundation caused many of the residential buildings to collapse, and therefore uninhabitable and unsafe. In addition, people lost their livestock, and those living in agriculture were not able to use the land at least for one year due to the deposition of sediments in the soil. Also, the appliances in the houses were damaged or destroyed as another consequence of long contact with floodwater.
