Rige Mouri village, Helmand town, Sistan . The Saravani family has lived in this region fr more than 100 years. This village, which has now turned into wilderness, is covered with sand and dust. Not long ago, it was a village near the river. There was a time when the mother of the family talked about the richness of the region with regret, and the son of the family remembered swimming in the river and working in the area.
