What is in a Name?

To a child in the earthquake hit region of Kermanshah, your name can mean a chance at a better future. A sponsorship of a Conex unit will include your name or the name of a loved one at the entrance. A certificate of appreciation will be issued with the location of the unit. As part of our long-term plan, Child Foundation has started a campaign of purchasing Conex units for students in the earthquake region. The cost of each unit, including shipping and furniture, is $5,000. Like the students, parents, and staff of Avicena Academy in northern California, you can also collaborate with a group of people to sponsor a unit. To participate please contact us here or visit or Kermanshah earthquake pa ge here .
To a child in Afghanistan suffering from thalassemia, your name can mean a chance at a healthier life. Child Foundation is expanding its projects to help children who are in desperate need of medical treatment. Child Foundation has been working diligently with its Afghanistan office to help children suffering from Thalassemia, a blood disease which could be fatal. In this effort, we are establishing a center in a local hospital to provide services to 90 children who suffer from this disease with medical treatments and training for families. Please conside r donating to our medical fund and give these children a hope for a healthier future. 

In the spirit of the holiday season, be a part of Child Foundation’s long term goals – to help children in disadvantaged regions have an opportunity to prosper. As you celebrate the coming holidays with your family and friends, take a moment and donate toward this effort.

As a gentle reminder, December 31 st is the last day to donate to receive 2017 tax deduction benefits.

U.S. Sanctions & OFAC License
Many have started fundraising on their own to help the earthquake victims, with some utilizing social media outlets like Facebook. Please note, if you are donating through Facebook or other private online fundraising efforts, U.S. government sanctions will prohibit those funds from being released to Iran. Only organizations with a proper license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) will be permitted to send financial aid to Iran.

Child Foundation is among the few organizations in the United States that carries this license and can ensure your financial support directly reaches those who are in need. During last two week, Child Foundation had transferred $300,000 to its sister foundation utilizing its OFAC license.

Please contact us if you have questions about safe and legal ways to help

Daniel , Zabol
My name is Daniel I lost my father in a car accident six years ago. My family was unable to receive any insurance benefits from the accident since he was at fault.

My mother is unemployed and cannot provide for my brother and me, including our education expenses. We receive monthly welfare from the government, but it is not enough. We live in a rental unite and lack basic necessities, including an AC, which is badly needed in Zabol’s hot climate.

Please donate to help me with my education
Zohreh , Zabol
I am 11 years old from Zabol with a very high GPA. I live with my mother, three brothers, and a very old father. He is 90 years old and very sick and barely can walk.

My mother is a housewife and has no income. Our only income is government subsidy and some help from a charity institute.

We are struggling to make ends meet especially the cost of our education.

I need your generosity and support to be able to continue my education.

Amir-Hosein , Ilam
I am in the seventh grade and I used to live as a member of a tribe.

One day while playing, my brother and I became victims of a landmine. My leg and face were damaged and my brother lost his hand.

My mother is a housewife without an education and my father is elderly and suffers from heart disease. He has a small income from working on a farm, but it not enough to provide for the family.

Your generosity can help me stay in school. 
Universal Children Day

In celebration of Universal Children’s Day, Child Foundation collaborated with UNICEF, Child Protection Action Network (CPAN), and Save the Children to celebrate the occasion in Mazar-e-Sharif. It was an evening of play and fun for many children living in poor condition.

Child Foundation volunteers in San Diego in conjunction with Persian School celebrated with fun-filled programs. Students and parents participated in a fundraiser toward the children of Kermanshah.
Blood Drive

Child Foundation held a successful blood drive in Portland, OR in collaboration with the Red Cross.
More donors than were expected donated, 37% of which were donating for the first time.

Red Cross informed CF that more than 45 lives could be saved by this blood drive.

Thank you to all those who came and were a part of this effort.
