Last Week: Guita Irani – Children of Persia
We heard from Guita Irani, one of the leaders of Children of Persia, a nonprofit charity based in Montgomery Village devoted to disaster relief and educational programs in Iran. The group works closely with nongovernmental organizations inside and outside of Iran on a variety of projects. In the last 20 years, the group has supported projects in health, education, training, and housing. The group has a challenging mission, especially with the current sanctions on trade and financial services, but it has had considerable success.
