My Story:

Mehrdad is a talented student with great grades. His father suffers from fierce back pain due to herniated disc. Having had severe mobility constraints for the past 10 years, the father cannot work. Prior to his condition, he was a manual laborer, which gives them partial health insurance coverage. They struggle for their subsistence and for the treatment costs of the father. Their only source of income is the monthly federal subsidies, and a small stipend from a charity organization. Mehrdad has a sister who is also a student. The family lives in a clay village house with minimal living conditions. The family needs help and support for their subsistence and for the education of the children.
