|RADOIR appoints actor Hamid Farrokhnejad as goodwill ambassador||
“I feel great that there are some people who do great things in the world outside of common governmental dealings. I feel it is my duty to assume a role with the foundation,” Farrokhnejad said during a ceremony at the office of the foundation in Tehran on Monday.
“About two months ago, I was informed about the illness of two children and their need for help,” he added.
“I planned to contact RADOIR to convince them to help the children, but then they called me before and asked me to cooperate with them as a goodwill ambassador. It was really amazing, I was searching for the foundation, but now they called me,” he stated.
Farrokhnejad asked celebrities to help such foundations, which support needy people suffering from the rare diseases.
“The treatment of disease costs a lot of money and families usually face problems to provide the necessary funds. I request that you do not leave them alone,” he said.
The foundation plans to send the two children, Amir-Reza and Ebrahim to Germany to receive treatment at a hospital in the country. They are currently looking for people to cover the cost of the treatment.
Farrokhnejad won a Crystal Simorgh for best actor at the 31st Fajr International Film Festival in Tehran on February 10 for his role in “The Restitution”, an Iranian film which traces the events that led to the Allied occupation of Iran during World War II.
