Behnam Daheshpour Charity Organization May 2012 The 6th Food Festival 06
Tehran

The charity organization, which is known as Behnam Daheshpour's Charity Organization, is aimed to help cancerous needy patients. In fact, Behnam was the name of a young countryman who had started to have cancer in the beginning of the 17th spring of his life. For 3 years he combated with this illness. But unfortunately, in spite of all the different treatments, in and out of the country, he died at the age of 21.
During his treatment period in Shohada-ye Tajrish Hospital, Behnam was strongly influenced by the horrible condition of patients in the semi-constructed Department of Oncology.
Despite his severe illness, he intended to complete the semi-finished works of the department with a strong spirit and perseverance. So he organized the first charity market in 1995 and by gathering people's aid through participation in benevolent activities and art seminars and presenting them to Shohada Hospital's cancerous patients, he founded a genuine movement.
As he sold decorated candles to benefit cancer patients, his own life’s candle died out in his home; yet he left a light in the hearts of his family and friends. A group of his relatives and friends gathered together in order to continue Behnam’s movement. And today, Behnam Daheshpour's Charity Organization is proud to be the assistance center of cancer victims.
Even though its construction operations had not yet been completed, Shohada-ye Tajrish Hospital Department of Cancer began its work in 1991 with the intention of reforming patient treatment.
Its waiting hall, mobilization of which had started regarding Behnam's efforts, was opened in the fall of 1995, when he was no longer among us.
Finally in March 1997 with public assistance, other departments prepared to receive patients. Each day many patients exchange their attire of concern and anxiety with an attrie of peace and relief in an empathetic atmosphere that is provided by this department through the generous coins that you deposit. And with you they will say that at last, in their hopes rests a common request.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
