IRCS Scheme for Female Breadwinners

The ‘Windows of Hope’ scheme implemented in the current Iranian calendar year (started March 21) will alleviate problems of at least one-fourth of the two-million female breadwinners in the country, according to Farahnaz Rafe’,  deputy for volunteer affairs at the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS).
 “The scheme aims to provide educational, medical, and living support for the vulnerable social groups,” she said, at a ceremony to honor IRCS social workers on Sunday, IRNA reported.
Last year, more than 30,000 people benefited from medical support. More than 220,000 individuals also received rehabilitation services in cooperation with volunteers. Volunteers and social workers employed at the IRCS have been trained in the last year, and “we are targeting to expand the penetration and contributions of IRCS in relief operations abroad.”
Currently there are two million young national volunteers, accounting for 12 percent of the global volunteer force, ranking Iran the highest in the field. More than six million people have so far received preventive as well as medical services in line with the Health Reform Plan.
The book ‘Role of Women in Crisis Management’ was also unveiled at the event attended by Vice- President for Women and Family Affairs Shahindokht Molaverdi.
