Younes Khani Someeh Soflaei | Khuzestan Province, Iran

All the residents of the villages were building floodgates round- the-clock to prevent the devastating floodwaters from entering their villages and, despite the emergency evacuation orders, kept on protecting their homes day and night.

In the early days of the iranian New Year "From mid-March to April 2019" widespread flash flooding affected large parts of Iran, most severely in Golestan, Fars, Khuzestan, Lorestan, and other provinces .

Iran has been hit by three major waves of rain and flooding over the course of two weeks which led to flooding in at least 26 of Iran's 31 provinces and at least 78 people were killed, 1137 injured and about 300,000 displaced.
In the incident, 26 provinces and more than 4,400 villages were affected by rain and floods, which damaged more than 14,000 kilometers of the country's roads in more than 68,000 points in Iran and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage to water and agriculture infrastructures.
The recent flood has affected the lives of 10 million people and at least 2 million of them need humanitarian assistance, the World Red Cross said.

This is my photography project about the flow of people's lives in Khouzestan province who experienced a devastating flood. During this confrontation, these people withstood and prevented the flood from entering their villages to the last moment while they were empty handed and had no protecting equipment for their families and properties. During the 15-day period that I lived with them, I tried to capture their unity, resistance and faith while facing this crisis.
