Two deadly earthquakes struck the Arasbaran region in the northwestern Iranian province of Azerbaijan last August, killing more than 300 people, injuring thousands and leaving many people homeless. Life in the Arasbaran region hasn't returned to normal yet, and the quake-stricken people are still in need of help. With the arrival of the Iranian new year, the most festive time of the year in Iran, group of volunteers visited the region on Wednesday and delivered donated gifts to the people so they could enjoy the occasion as well.
