MAHAK – Iranian Cancer Charity for Children

The Society to Support Children Suffering from Cancer, known as MAHAK, is a strictly non-governmental organisation founded in 1991 by socially motivated volunteers. The main objective of this Society is to alleviate pain in children suffering from cancer and bring hope to their devastated families.

During the past fourteen years, MAHAK has helped more than 8000 cancer-stricken children all over the country as well as the children of Iraqi and Afghan refugees.

MAHAK has recently achieved one of its main objectives and constructed its own specialised Mega Hospital and Rehabilitation Complex in Tehran with the ability to provide care for 120 children with accompanying parents.

The complex is designed to offer treatment and a range of rehabilitation possibilities beside other facilities such as an auditorium, a playground and dining hall.

If you can not help them, you can enjoy your time with them, together !!
When you enjoy their amazing programs such as theater, music,...etc, you will understand who is living, you or them !!
I did so and learned a lot, just try...
