UNICEF Iran Office Congratulates all Children and Families in Iran on Eid-ul Fetr

Tehran, 21 August 2012- UNICEF Representative in Iran, Munir Safieldin congratulating Eid ul Fetr, wished health and happiness for all children and adolescents in Iran, and said:” We hope we have all benefited quite well from the spiritual opportunities of Ramazan and we are now better prepared to make efforts towards the optimum growth and development of children to enable them to reach their full potentials.”

“On this happy occasion, we should also remember those children who are deprived of happiness and laughter for a reason, especially children affected by Earthquake in East Azerbaijan who’ve lost one or both parents, children whose daily cheerful laughter is now replaced by shock and grief.” Said Safieldin.

UNICEF Iran office has expressed readiness to provide support to the government of Islamic Republic of Iran, if requested, to improve the situation of children affected by Earthquake in East Azerbaijan in the areas of health and hygiene, nutrition, psychosocial support and child protection as well as education.
