How ERFO Helps the Earthquake Victims
After identifying the children who have lost one or both parents
during the earthquake, we locate a close relative to accept their guardianship.
In addition, we setup a certificate of deposit in the child's name with a local
bank. The guardian family can withdraw every month the interest earned by this
deposit to cover the ongoing financial expenses of caring for the child. To
cover other expenses, during Norouz, in case of emergencies, and from time
to time, the guardian family is provided with extra funds directly from ERFO.
Once the child reaches the legal age of 18, the full amount of the certificate
of deposit can be withdrawn by the child. At that time, if the child intends
to start a business or a family, ERFO will help with financial assistance and
