|Katayun Riahi establishes charity foundation on Kish Island||
Iran’s Welfare Organization Director Homayun Hashemi and several other officials attended the inauguration ceremony of the foundation on Thursday.
The foundation began activities in the villages of Kharabeh and Bagh Narges in the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan two months ago, Riahi said during the ceremony.
The Komak Charity Foundation plans to build a complex to house the elderly, orphans, and children without parents on Kish in the near future, she added.
Afterward, Hashemi expressed his happiness over the establishment of the foundation.
He asked other Iranian celebrities to join the charitable groups and said that their participation in such groups helps the charity organizations to build trust.
Riahi quit acting in 2009 and joined some humanitarian activities.
In September 2011, she traveled to a Somali refugee camp in Kenya to help people suffering from severe famine and drought.
