Iran Volleyball Federation President visits cancer charity

President Davarzani picked a wish from a 'wishing tree' to make it come true
 Tehran, Iran, November 29, 2016 – Iran Volleyball Federation President Dr. Mohammad Reza Davarzani visited the “Behnam Daheshpour” charity in Tehran. The charity cares for child cancer sufferers and the Iran Volleyball Federation has extended financial and moral support to help the children suffering from cancer. 

President Davarzani is encouraging the volleyball family to carry out their social responsibilities alongside their professional careers.
Davarzani talked to the founders of the charity and expressed his support as he toured the facilities.

“Sports officials must be aware of their social responsibilities,” he said. “We should enjoy fulfilling our social duties. Cancer is a terrible thing, and it’s hard for children and their parents to deal with such pain. And if you add poverty to that ….  

“Charities can relieve the pain, and I am happy and proud to see ‘Behnam Daheshpour’ is offering high-level services to the children regardless of their financial status, nationality, or citizenship.”
He also remembered the late coach Madani, who died of cancer. 

“Each year, we lose many of our sports stars and prominent figures because of cancer,” the President added. “I would also like to emphasize that ‘prevention is better than the cure.’ We must be united as there are many sources of this monster.

“The Iran Volleyball Federation will do anything to support the charity. I am also very pleased that the charity has formed youth and junior volleyball teams. We will help you hold any kind of courses to educate the people more.”

At the end, President Davarzani came across a “wishing tree” that had many dreams pinned to it. The President picked one to make it come true.
