*Norooz 2018* and the children of Zardeh

From Mercedes Afshar

Raising money to buy *eidi* (a new year's present) for the children impacted by the earthquake at a village in the Kermanshah province. Hoping to make their *Norooz* this year almost as delightful as ours will be!

Update #8

We have 7 days to go and Pegah and I have already begun finding resources for the purchase and distribution of the goods. Thanks to several generous individuals we will be able to get the children bicycles and the parents some basic food supply packages for half the original price. We are also looking into purchasing 1 or 2 modular, and of course communal, shower/restroom units to provide for the communities around Zardeh that are in desperate need of them. Stay tuned for more..
