The amount of charitable contributions to State Welfare Organization is increasing, according to an official at SWO.

Mohammad Ali Kouzegar, deputy for public participation at the SWO, said that around 9.9 trillion rials ($260 million) worth of donations were made in the last fiscal year (ended March 20, 2017), of which 5.6 trillion rials ($147 million) were financial.

“The donations were made directly to individuals or families covered by SWO,” he told ISNA. The organization’s hotline, 193, is available in multiple languages for non-financial donations. SWO dispatches vehicles to the donor’s homes to collect donations.

For financial contributions, those interested can deposit money into the organization’s Bank Mellat account (90190).
