The baby was assisted by 88 kind people
During the pandemic, family of the baby was assisted by 88 kind people.
In 40 hours, our campaign raised $ 3,890.00 from Canada and 2,000,000 Toman from Iran. The total donations amounted to 48,291,000 Toman which were sent to them by Mr. Karimi of Persica currency, free of charge.
The full story of this family:
Mahmoud, a compatriot of our minority who lives on the outskirts of Shiraz, near Mansourabad. Mahmoud who has only been able to provide bread and potatoes for his wife in the past four months and has twice managed to add a tomato to the side, but has been able to keep their family together. Our campaign heard about his situation through his friend, a friend that our campaign was able to assist following the floor in Shiraz, who had told us about their situation and their eviction by their landlord.
Since Mahmoud had neither a phone nor a bank account (his account was closed after it was emptied), we contacted his landlord and asked him to provide Mahmoud with his phone shortly so we may speak to him.
At first he hesitated with disgust, however, he did eventually explain the hardship of his life and the downturn, when his wife had to give birth via C-Section. At that time, he was forced to borrow money and after he was injured at work, he had to borrow again. Given the size of his debt, they were forced into eating bread and potatoes for their meals. To make matters harder, his wife was not able to produce milk and they had to provide their baby with sugar-water.
Most of our lives has ups and downs and many of immigrants have endured extreme hardships to get to where they are today. We see poverty and diseases in our lives and so, we should be happy and grateful with the things we have. We have shown that together, we can make the world a better place and help those who are experiencing difficult times and are devoid of hope.
Children are our future and to be able to save a baby, it brings us great joy and to be able to put a smile and the faces of that beautiful family, it provides us with great happiness.
