The Iranian community is strong, and we have been working together to support our Iranian community abroad for many years. During this pandemic we have initiated the COVID-19 Urgent Relief Effort (CURE), to maximize our effort to address the acute shortages identified by professionals in Iran. Building on years of charity work, COVID-19 Urgent Relief Effort (CURE) has brought the Iranian community in Canada together to address the acute medical and welfare needs as a result of the outbreak in Iran.
