Message from General Manager
Each of us has witnessed parental behaviors and beautiful local customs at different times in our lives to help different people among our neighbors and relatives; Those who, for various reasons, have fewer gifts of life and health, and in the meantime children have perhaps the least role in determining their destiny: when, where, by whom and under what circumstances did they enter the world?
Regardless of all the above factors, children enter life innocently and in any situation, wherever they are in the country, they have the right to enjoy good living conditions and everyone is equal, but the important challenge is how to live normal living conditions like Created a family for those who are deprived of it?
For more than 25 years, Kowsar Mishiz Charity has been devoting its efforts to supporting orphaned or abused children. Mashiz has chosen a way that he believes is the closest way to simulate family presence: “quasi-family.” Where children, with the slightest difference from their playmates and peers, experience being at home and with family members, recognizing life responsibilities, having the usual facilities for education and health, and in the future to join the roaring river of the young and future generation of the country, without being disappointed with material and spiritual shortcomings.
We hope to see the young, powerful and dynamic steps of more and more lovers of our Aryan land by our side in the path we have taken, and with more strength of heart, to build the dream house of Mashiz children brick by brick until maturity and success.
waiting for your love
