Help Javad and his family fix his car for work.

From Roxana Asbagh

I am raising money for a hard-working man named Javad who lives in Tehran, Iran with his wife and three children. Unfortunately, his car broke down a few days ago, and he is unable to work his usual job as a taxi driver.

A family member in Tehran, Iran works with a tirelessly,  hard-working man by the name of Javad. Javad, who works as a taxi driver, and his wife, Zahra, who works as a housemaid have three children.  Zahra has been unable to work due to the pandemic, and Javad has been trying his best to provide for his family and keep up with the cost of living in order to pay the rent for their one bedroom apartment, pay the bills, and provide food. Due to the sanctions and the pandemic, those who were suffering from a horrible economy, and already living below the poverty line find themselves barely able to stand on their feet. Javad and his family are struggling, and my uncle tells me that he’s too proud to ask for help. He is unable to afford winter clothes for him and his wife, and spent what they could on their young children. A few days ago, Javad’s car, which is the only tool he has in order to make money as a taxi driver broke down and stopped working. He’s been crying and praying for some form of relief; he’s out of options. When he took his car to the mechanic, they gave him an estimate of $500 to have his car fixed, which of course, he simply does not have. Javad and his family have no way of affording their cost of living and he is now looking for any job in order to fix his car and provide the necessities for him and his family. Unfortunately, in Iran, finding a job, especially at an older age is near impossible. On top of this, his 3 sons all use the same computer for school, and a couple of days ago, the computer crashed and they are now unable to study and complete their coursework. US currency goes a LONG way in Iran, and this kind, diligent family deserves a break. My heart breaks for them. If you can donate absolutely anything, it would mean a lot.
