Outbreak Care Packages for Iran's Children
The coronavirus pandemic is a brutal, ongoing storm overwhelming Iranian institutions and communities.
Businesses are closed. Incomes have been slashed or vanished. Families are caring for their sick with limited supplies. Due to the pandemic, Iran’s weak economy is worsening. And those living on the brink are trying to find shelter from the storm but with few resources. For the wellbeing of our thousands of sponsored children, we must act. This is Emergency Assistance.
Child Foundation will utilize its OFAC General License E to send relief funds to our affiliate organization in Iran. That office will procure food and basic supplies. The office has already given care packages to families across cities like Tabriz, Mahabad, and Yazd. We want to reach 1,500 more families. Our affiliate office in Iran will put $20 toward food and essentials for each care package. These go into the hands of a family on the brink.
We are joining an ongoing effort of dozens of affiliate offices throughout Iran to support families who have lost their breadwinners. The photos here show care packages delivered within recent weeks. This is a disaster and Child Foundation families need us.
