• Burned Children Program came to fruition after witnessing real life suffering of a group of young Iranian children who were trapped in their classroom during an accidental heater fire and burned alive while doors and windows of their classroom were shut from outside due to exams being in session in other classes.


    The news documentary was sent to us by a man from Shiraz, Iran, the area children were from, who asked, “Is there anything you can do for these kids?” We watched the 'In the News' in agony. By the time news of these children reached us, two years had already passed. Many of these children hadalready gone through excruciating physical pain and suffering due to the insufficient urgent medical care they had received. These children were simply treated at local clinics rather than burn units or children hospitals. The local doctors and medical staff did what they thought was right for an adult.


    Unfortunately, due to erroneous initial medical interventions, fingers of at least one of the girls were not individually wrapped. As a result, in later years her fingers had to be amputated in order to have any use of her hands. Some had no nose, some no ears, some had severe burns all over their bodies and a couple of “lucky ones” had only burns to their faces and hands. The day we watched that 'In the News' we decided to do something about the kids with that type of suffering; not just because they were Iranian but because they had no one else to do anything for them.


    Since then, we have been able to build a partnership with Shriners Hospital in Houston, Texas which specializes in both burns and prosthetic body parts for children. We have been able to allocate enough resources for this program, and we now have contacts in Ankara, Turkey who will assist these children in their transfer to the United States. Families in Houston Texas have written to us volunteering to open their homes to these children while they undergo treatment. We have also had modest success in raising funds to enable these children to be treated one at a time in the United States. This type of program is normally allocated through USAID.


    Unfortunately, due to sanctions on Iran, we are not permitted to use such funds for these children because they are Iranian. However, we hope, in future, we could receive USAID funds for children from all nationalities and countries.


    We hope no child will ever again be burned alive and to top that become a political victim of governments' disgruntled policies towards one another.

  • Here is some update on current issues and recent activities.

    The last few days or even weeks have been spent on scheduling Mohammad's visa appointment in Turkey.

    We are glad this is all arranged and Mohammad and his father shall be starting off their journey to Turkey this week; the tickets for their trip are also ready. This is another step forward.




    Mohammad's Flight Schedule




    Mohammad's Apppointment Letter in Ankara


    After dealing with so many bureaucratic complexities, Mohammad finally has an appointment in Ankara for US visa interview.

    If all goes well, Mohammad and his father will be in the US in time for his first operation. Let's hope so.

    We are glad this is another step forward. Please continue your support. Thank you.







    As you may notice in the second invitation letter, dated June 2015, Mohammad is still in Iran; due to lack of finances to buy his ticket, we had to reschedule his surgery.

    So we had to reschedule his surgery from July 19 to Aug 19 2015.


    Mohammad is still waiting ...

  • A True Story

    On a cold winter day eight years ago, a class of twenty boys and girls, all eight years old, in a village near the city of Shiraz, were getting ready for their math exam. Their windows were shut tight due to the winter weather and since other classes were doing exams simultaneously, the school teachers decided to close the door from outside so the children would not disturb other classes in session.


    The day before the accident the school had an earthquake exercise. Their fire extinguisher was used up and had not been re-filled. Also, the day before, when a local worker filled the little heater tank, he spilled heating oil on the floor and it was left to dry on its own.


    On the day of the accident, before their math test started, the children were cold and gathered around the heater to warm up. One of them, passing by the heater, accidentally caught her coat on the heater. The oil heater fell on the floor and burst into flames. The oil soaked floor also caught on fire.


    The children screamed for help but since the windows were shut and the door was shut from the outside it was some time before the adults realized their screams were not out of happiness but they were burning. By the time the children were rescued, twelve died and eight survived with severe burns. Six years has passed since this tragedy but very little has been done by the Iranian government to help these kids.


    After two years of nonstop work, Iran & Its Future.org, through Ghazal Omid, has been able to make progress to obtain their visas, arrange a surgical team and hospitals but these children are denied any help by the US government because of sanctions against Iran. To overcome that, Ghazal dedicated her newly released children’s book, Mr. Nightingale, to these children.


    Please look at the Mr. Nightingale story as a gift and recommend it to your friends and family members through your social sites. The proceeds can help finance the children’s surgery. You can find Mr. Nightingale book on Amazon in nine additional languages to English, Including Hebrew…

    Sincerely,

    Ghazal Omid
