Mahmood abad Khavaran House
The other project is new and involves helping the children and families of brick makers based 140km south of Tehran, near Mahmoud Abad. These brick makers have moved to this deserted area that doesn't have any facilities to accommodate families such as school, doctor or even a tree. The brick workers and their families have built their homes in this so called "biaboon" but they still lack many basic amenities. Their homes don't even have toilet so they have been using a public one without any walls. This is of course very disturbing and most recently shower and toilet facility has been built by private donors. A school has also been put in place and a teacher is hired to teach primary education to the children. The wives of the brick makers are taught trades, such as knitting. All of these activities need funds to continue and this is where ICC comes in to help.
