Disaster Relief & Displaced Children Program
ABOUT THE PROJECT
After the Van earthquake, CHILD International applied for and obtained a license from the US Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) to transfer $250,000 to Iran for humanitarian aid for victims of the earthquake.
CHILD International transferred the funds to Anjoman Nikoukary Omid Kamal to best implement the humanitarian projects in East Azarbayejan due to their extensive experience in disaster relief and their successful programs to help those in need in Iran.
- Aid Information Omid Kamal provides shelter, food, clothing, full medical care and education to underprivileged students in Iran.
Our goal is to educate and empower the motivated students from impoverished regions so that they can rise above the vicious cycle of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency and independence.
Funding provided helps operate dormitories where students continue their education in a nurturing environment. The normal operations of Omid Kamal are funded by generous individuals in Iran including its volunteer board of directors.
The humanitarian aid for East Azarbayejan is beyond what Omid Kamal would normally undertake but it has decided to extend its services to East Azarbayejan due to available funding through CHILD International under the OFAC license, which allows donors in the United States to contribute to the recovery of East Azarbayejan.
Support CHILD International and its mission to transform the lives of underprivileged and displaced children around the world suffering from poverty, hunger, poor education, sickness and neglect, into lives of hope and possibilities.
