Iran is a beautiful country in the Middle East where citizens are deprived of basic freedoms, students are jailed for peaceful protests and you can be killed for advocating free speech. There are people there who need our help. These people are forced to leave their homes and move far away just to stay alive or for their children to have the opportunity for an education. They need food, jobs, transitional support and a secure place to live, many refugees are trying to come to America but it is a very hard journey, fortunately there are people who can help.
