ICRC hails Iran Textile Industries’ contributions

TEHRAN, Jan. 14 (MNA) – Head of ICRC representative office in Tehran commended Helal (crescent) Iran Textile Industries for their generous contributions to the Red Cross committee.

Zolfaghar Yazdanmehr, CEO of Helal Iran Textile Industries (which belongs to the Red Crescent), noted that in 2014 a contract with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was signed under which Helal industries would produce 150,000 blankets, 1,000 first aid kits, and 1,000 medical kits for doctors.

“As soon as the contract was signed, the production of the highest quality blankets began and the blankets were delivered to the ICRC before the deadline,” he said.

“We have improved the speed and quality of our products to such a level that the head of ICRC representative office in Tehran Olivier Martin has commended our efforts by sending a certificate of appreciation,” said Yazdanmehr, adding that Mr. Martin had praised the allocation of Helal Iran Textile Industries infrastructures to ICRC.

Yazdanmehr maintained that productions of Helal Industries have reached the standards of Red Cross, adding that, “at the moment we are considered as the main base for Red Cross in the region and most of the committee’s requirements for the region are provided by our industries.”

In 2012, the Director General of the ICRC, Yves Daccord visited Tehran, during which he signed a memorandum of understanding with the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The primary objective of the memorandum was to reinforce the strategic partnership between the ICRC and the Iranian Red Crescent and to strengthen the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement through joint activities benefiting the partners and ultimately the people receiving aid.
