Thank you all! We surpassed Goal #1 and #2 - Amazing :)

Thank you so much for supporting my mission of helping reduce malnutrition in Oakland by interning with the International Rescue Committee.
Having a strong passion to address malnutrition in refugee and immigrant populations, I was lucky enough to be brought on for a project to completely revamp the IRC's existing nutrition program - the New Roots Program. By leading this project, I am helping better identify high malnutrition risk patients from the moment they resettle into Oakland.
When I see Farsi-speaking mothers with 4 children in our office and think about my current and future work with the IRC, I feel so lucky to be able to apply my background in nutrition and Iranian upbringing to help those in need.
I thank you for your support so far and I can't wait to see what we can achieve together, with your help.
