Westport’s Save the Children Helping Iran Earthquake Victims

Westports Save the Children is appealing for public support to help victims of the devastating earthquake in Iran.

Emergency response workers from the Wilton Road-based humanitarian group arrived in Iran over the weekend. They plan to provide dislocated families basic shelter assistance, medical care and help children who have lost parents and other loved ones.

“There are tens of thousands of people without homes,” Michael Kiernan, a Save the Children spokesman, said today. “Many are sleeping on the ground. It’s freezing. It’s clearly important to respond to the survivor’s needs.”
