Blessed is he who reaches out to those in need

Dear Supporters,

We would like to extend our warmest wishes for a healthy and peaceful Nowruz, a new Spring to you, yours and all Iranians around the world.

Economic challenges made last year a particularly difficult one for PKCF and Iran. Our CEO and Iran representatives spent the months of August and September 2022 inspecting the ongoing projects, assessing their needs for planning purposes and given very difficult general conditions, ensuring equitable distribution of food and sanitation packages to the neediest Iranian and Afghan families. We also had the opportunity to assess the progress of construction projects for the Saati Middle/High School in the village of Jafarabad, Ghazvin and PKCF elementary school in Hichan, Baluchistan.

Here in our latest newsletter, we would like to share highlights from Bachehaye Ma, Jafarabad Village, Elementary School, Saati Middle/High School, Kaykee Village, and PKCF Elementary School. These are all projects that have been launched and maintained with your generous support. PKCF’s medical fund, Artisan Centre, various other schools and Football Program have also gone from strength to strength.

Your invaluable and unwavering support through donations, participation in our Christmas mas Bazaar and most recently the Young PKCF Chaharshanbeh Suri event is greatly appreciated. Although we are living in trying and uncertain times, we are determined to fulfil our mission of helping those in greatest need and will hold our Annual Summer Garden Fundraiser on 22 June 2023 where we hope to welcome and thank you in person.

With heartfelt gratitude and warm wishes for 1402,

The PKCF Family

Since 1998, the Popli Khalatbari Charitable Foundation (PKCF) has been a conduit between those facing challenges through poverty or ill health and those who have the resources and appetite to help them. Together we have financed education, equipped hospitals, created opportunities, and built schools and orphanages.

Understanding that poverty and misfortune are not just consequences of war or natural disaster but exist similarly in otherwise safe and stable parts of the world, we have been mindful of the need for our work not just in distant places but in the very communities where we live and often thrive.

Over two decades, we have distributed almost £7 million across a variety of projects, with a mandate to bring light to those who are otherwise living in the shadow of hopelessness, regardless of who or where they are. These funds – and help in kind – have come to us from supporters across the globe who share our values and trust us to be the instruments of their goodwill and generosity. With the privilege of this immense responsibility, we are conscious of the need for us to act with integrity, transparency, and compassion, and we welcome all who show an interest in finding out more about our projects and our governance.

We look forward to welcoming you to the PKCF family.
