Iran floods: Charities reach devastated villages

Volunteers have come to help but some houses are too far gone and others completely washed away.

    Flooding has devastated large parts of Iran, affecting 10 million people.

    The government and charities have been providing what food, water and shelter assistance they can, but with homes heavily damaged and destroyed, many locals are saying they need an entirely new place to live.

    As Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi reports from Lorestan province, volunteers are doing what they can to help.
