TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The representative of Ahwaz in the Iranian parliament underlined the role of petrochemical plants in realizing social responsibility measures, saying the support of petrochemical plants to the flood-hit areas of the country was laudable.

Homayoun Yousefi told NIPNA thanked petrochemical companies which offered contributions to the flood-hit people in the southwestern province of Khuzestan in recent weeks, saying, "The assistance of petrochemical companies to address the problems of flood victims is worthy of praise."

"Given the emergence of national resolve to help flood victims in this incident, the glory of national coherence was outstanding.”

The plants operating in the flood-stricken areas are carrying out social responsibility measures to serve the local people who were seriously affected by heavy rainfalls and the ensuing inundation in recent weeks.

Included among these plants that offered support to the flood-hit citizens was Amir Kabir Petrochemical Plant which offered one-day pay of its managers and senior staff for the expenses of clearing up the mud and accommodating the people.

The company also sent food consignments to the region which entailed rice, chicken, and conserved food as well as detergents and plastic rolls for protection against cold.

The recent flooding was unprecedented in the past 50 years in Iran and has so far claimed at least 70 deaths.

Arvand, Kermanshah, Shazand, Bistoun, Tondgouyan, and Pars petrochemical companies have also donated consignments and offered cash or in-kind contributions to the flood-hit regions.
