I have posted many articles about Iran, Iranians or half Iranians. I will take care of 1/4 Iranians later.
It is sort of therapeutic. Many Iranians don’t have time to follow some of the news presented here, such as my own brother, Alibaba the biggest fan of this blog. As a busy North American, he simply does not have the time. The good side of all his activities is whenever I am in a sort of mess he volunteers to the rescue 🙂
Speaking of which this month I had a few posts about philanthropic organizations. The Nobel Peace Prize 2006, Camila’s kidsco and Culturekicks. It really doesn’t cost anyone to find some time within his schedule to do something to help others. I have always been skeptical about those who have expounded big theories on the future of humanity but don’t find five minutes to do something practical.
To name a few interesting organizations with consistent work in Iran:
Mahak providing care to kids affected by cancer. Their aim is that no child in Iran diagnosed with cancer has to go without treatment because of lack of money.
Behnam Daheshpour Cancer Institute named after its founder, a teenage boy afflicted by cancer, who spent the last years of his life creating this institute and equipped it to treat cancer patients and assist their families for free.
If you speak Norwegian and you want to learn about Uganda, this is the place to go. If any of you are in, let’s say Sydney or Sacramento, you can check about local Iranian events here and here, and learn that no future events are scheduled at this time 🙂
