Moms Against Poverty
1st Quarter Impact Report
We are grateful for the support of our community during one of the biggest natural disasters Iran has faced. Since mid-March, flash floods have hit 25 of Iran’s 31 provinces, forcing mass evacuations, ravaging infrastructure, and inflicting more than $2.2bn in damages. Thousands of children and their families have lost their homes and livelihood. Thanks to your generosity, we have collected close to $150,000.
Our team has been providing first level relief, distributing food, hygiene products and basic provisions to the most vulnerable in the provinces of Golestan, Lorestan, Fars and Khuzestan. There is much more need that yet has to be addressed, including rebuilding and reconstruction efforts.
Please help support the orphans, children with special needs, as well as impoverished children and their families during this time of need. Donate Now.
With Our Deepest Gratitude and Regards,
The MAP Team
