Dismissing claims of cooperation with Aftaab Institute

UNICEF Iran office would like to inform the public about a fake claim of joint partnership brought up by “Aftaab Cultural Artistic Institute”.

It has come to our attention that letters are being circulated by Aftaab Institute amongst some children’s organization with the name and logo of UNICEF Iran claiming that UNICEF is cooperating in holding a festival for acknowledging children’s supporters on 25 February 2013.

UNICEF Iran office rejects such fake claims of cooperation and declares it has no association with the aforementioned festival organized by Aftaab Cultural Artistic Institute.

UNICFE name and logo is an important asset, build over sixty years by the hard and difficult work of many people dedicated to children. Such fraudulent act of using UNICEF name and logo without official permission is against ethical working guidelines and is strongly condemned.
