According to a report by Young Journalists Club, as translated by IFP, Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation registered sponsors for 2,520 orphans in Hormozgan.
“In the first quarter of this year, 2,320 philanthropists volunteered to support the orphans and needy children under the Mohsenin plan”, said Ali Allahyari, the head of the Foundation’s office in Hormozgan.
“Mohsenin plan only applies to those families whose parents [or guardians] are sick or incapable of work and are in desperate need.”
“Sponsors donated 13,710,252,000 rials [nearly $400,000] for orphans and needy children. […] The donation amount has increased 63% compared with the same period last year,” Allahyari went on to say.
“Since the beginning of holy Islamic month of Ramadan, more than 1,800 orphans and needy children have been introduced to new sponsors”.
