This is a great idea to help and promote a very good cause and we are certain that it will be a fantastic fund raising event for Mahak. Mahak is an organization with a first class hospital in the north of Tehran which cares for children with cancer. It is the leader in helping children who suffer from cancer. Mahak takes care of kids from all over Iran and is one of the rare Iranian NGOs which operates like a true NGO by international standards, unique in its transparency and operating standards. Last year Mahak was presented with the Swiss SGS NGO Benchmarking award for the best and most transparent NGO in the Middle East. It enjoys the assistance of a great many dedicated volunteers from all sphere of life including many doctors and specialists.
Mahak and Mrs. Ferial Salahsour, the art collector and manager of the Day Art Gallery have come up with a wonderful idea of staging an art show for which all the art works have been donated by the artists for fund raising for Mahak and all the money raised will benefit the needy children with cancer in Iran.
The exhibition will take place in Tehran Niavaran Cultural center blue room. The opening will be on Friday 27th June (7th Tirr 1387) from 3-8 p.m. and it will be open to all visitors on 28-29th June (8-9th Tirr) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mahak and its supporters would like to invite you to this Exhibition which has been called The Color of Love. I can only hope that you will be able to help this great cause directly or indirectly and kindly urge everyone you know in Tehran to come and see and perhaps buy these wonderful art works on display which have been donated by more than ninety world-renowned and distinguished artists of our homeland to help the children that Mahak support in its many different roles and who suffer from cancer. These children will enjoy the benefit of care from Mahak through your generosity and kindness. May you and all these children in pain and need be blessed!
