During the month of June, the World Forgotten Children Foundation (WFCF) hosted its first-ever "Faces You Can't Forget – Month of Giving."
To kick off this event, Dr. Mehdi Khosrow-Pour, Executive Director of WFCF was interviewed on the television program Good Day PA! at ABC Channel 27, a local news station in Central Pennsylvania, USA. During the live broadcast, he had the opportunity to talk about the foundation, its mission and vision, and ultimately the purpose of the inaugural event.

Throughout the Month of Giving, stories of the children and young adults who have been impacted positively by WFCF were featured on WFCF’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages), and individuals visiting the pages were encouraged to share their own personal stories that align with the mission of WFCF with the hashtag #facesyoucantforget.
WFCF also welcomed guest blog authors who shared stories about their own personal triumphs and/or stories that are near and dear to their hearts.
All of the tax-deductible donations made during the Month of Giving will go toward supporting the health and welfare needs of orphaned children with disabilities all over the world. WFCF funded projects in the past have allowed for the purchase of mobility and bathing equipment, nutritional and medicinal products, and physical therapy and rehabilitation services for children and young adults worldwide.
A huge thank you to everyone who made donations throughout the month of June, and to all those who make contributions to WFCF each-and-every-day!
The children and young adults who WFCF serves will undoubtedly benefit from this tremendous generosity, and based on the success of this event, this is sure to be a recurring annual event for WFCF in the years to come.
