Fund Raising for Building Homes for Orphans
and Homeless Children in Kashan, Iran

Dear friend,

With the recent OFAC decision (Please see 1) allowing to legally raise and transfer up to $500,000 every 12 months to Iran for humanitarian causes, we invite you to join us for a dinner on Friday February 21, from 6-8 pm at the Iranian Association of Boston in Watertown (17 Nichols Ave., Watertown, MA 02472) for the followings:

A non-governmental organization (NGO) in Kashan, Iran called Negin-e Khayyerin Kashan, has been caring for abused, homeless, socially orphaned and orphan boys and girls and street-children during the last 11 years: http://www.neginhome.net, you can see the managing board here.

After age 18, boys and girls are legally released from the Negin's care, but Negin continue to support them by finding them jobs and/or supporting their university education. However, girls stay with them till they finish their education or get married regardless of their age.

" We realize that our job is not complete at age 18 and these young adults need as much, if not more support to build their life." At this stage, in addition to job and education, the main support they need is settling them in secure, independent and acceptable dwelling.

" We have been fortunate to get a donation of 570 square meters of prime land in Kashan (2), valued at 750 million Tomans or $250,000 in today exchange rate, and a permit to build two 5-story buildings with total of 20 apartments (3 & 4). "

The city of Kashan municipality has waived 304 million Tomans/ $106,000 building permit fees (5). In addition, engineers have donated their times for planning and supervising the construction process (4).

The only condition that the land donor has attached to the land transfer contract is to start building within 12 months of transfer and finish it within 3 years (6). Therefore, time is of the essence here.

On Friday Feb 22, we will familiarize you with the Negin charity organization, the children homes, lives, activities and achievements.

We hope that you or someone you know will be able to make a tax-deductible contribution through ERFO, www.ERFO.org, a 501(c)(3) charity NGO (IRS tax ID 22-307-2053) established in Boston in 1990.

We are looking forward to seeing you. Please confirm your attendance by simply responding to this email and including the number of attendees.

If you are not able to attend, you may send your contributions to ERFO, 490 Beacon Street, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467.

Please feel free to forward this email or invite interested family members and friends to join and support.

Sincerely yours,

Mohammad Farivar, MD
