Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 02, 2012
The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation appreciates the support of Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, co-founders of No More Poverty. The foundation is a non-profit community organization that provides fundamental services such as tutoring, housing assistance, and recreational opportunities to needy children and families.
“Many of the children we serve have never been out of the dangerous inner-city environment. They have never seen the ocean, visited Disneyland, and certainly never been to a mountain camp setting,” says Francesca McCaffery, Director of Development for Children’s Life Saving Foundation. “We recognized quickly how transforming these experiences are for children. We so appreciate the support of No More Poverty and it co-founders Michael Omidi, MD and Julian Omidi as it will help us continue to care for young people in this truly life-changing way.”
