The Child Foundation family is deeply saddened by the news of the Ukrainian airplane downing in Tehran, which caused the death of 176 passengers. Our condolences go out to each family and friend of those we lost.
We learned two of the passengers were generous members of Child Foundation’s donor family. They supported three girls’ educations in Kurdistan, Mazandaran, and Sistan Baluchestan.
Recently, they generously purchased a refrigerator for the Sistan Baluchestan student. And the student’s thank you letter conveys more than we ever could about the donor: “I wish I could be a kind person like you; I love (you) very very much.” The donors’ surviving family will continue to support the girls in their honor.
If you wish to be involved in what this young couple believed was important, please visit our website
to sponsor a child’s education.
May peace be with everyone who lost a dear one in the crash. We are heavy with sadness, gratitude, and purpose.
