Ardavan jan, very heart-breaking indeed! The worst thing is that we care about all other down-trodden people but not our own people. We tend to claim that we can manage the world , but can hardly take care of the smallest issues that need just a little attention! THIS IS THE WORST PART! I am so sorry for this little girl and many thousands that we do not even hera from or about! Years ago, I used to be a teacher at a very poor boy-school in Shemiran Noe in Tehran. I had a variety of students all coming from poor walks of life. Some of them came to school every other year: one year they worked and their brothers went to school, and one year their brothers worked so that they could go to school. I was 18 or 19 then. But in my young age, I was suffering from their powerty. It was the time of the war…I remember that some of the students brothers and fathers left for war and returned in coffins… Anyway, I remmebr Kian who was my student. He was so clever. His small bosy and short
height for his age showed that he was suffering from mal-nutrition. His father sold cigarettes and small groceries under a stair case (zir Pelei). I once asked Kian to come to the baord. He say and stared at me. I told him, «are you ready for this?» He smiled and confirmed. He asked me what i would give him if he answers all the questions corerectly. I said, whatever he wanted. He asked for a pair of shoes. He came to the board and I saw that he had tied the sole of slippers (kafe dampai) with a piece of rope to his cold feet which was blue with cold. I could hardly swallow my tears….That week we collected some money from the rich religious people whom we knew and got many ofthe students clothes and shoes. Kian was only one of them. I never knew what happened to him after that year. Is he working as a peddler in one of the streets of Tehran? Could he finish his education? Is he an addict now? I do not know. The story seemed to many like one of Samad Behrangi’s stories, but it was
true…The same is true with this little girl, who has suffered from this sever burn that has affected her whole life! I am so sorry and angry with those who make decisions in this country but may be not quite responsibly! On a different issue, a number of American and Iranian US based surgeons and doctos come to Iran and many of the developing countries every year to perform this sort of surgeries for free. Their contacts can be found of the Child Foundation’w website.
Thanks Ardavan Jan, for sharing this with me and apologies if I had to write in English. I did not have the Persian fonts here.
Cheers brother! Dastet dard nakoneh!
