A $200 Donation Pays for Surgery Prep at Philippine Orphanage - No More Poverty Helps Coordinate Medical Care for Sick, Needy Kids
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) October 19, 2012

No More Poverty and its co-founders Michael Omidi, MD and Julian Omidi are supporters of Terry’s Team, a team of cyclists raising funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

No More Poverty and its co-founders Michael Omidi, MD and Julian Omidi are happy to assist Charitable Endowment Support (CES7) in their mission to improve the lives of homeless, impoverished, sick and abused children living in third-world adversity. One of the organization’s initial projects is construction of a fully operational orphanage in the Philippines to provide safe shelter, education and medical services. An urgent need in this same community is the coordination of life-saving surgical procedures currently needed by five orphans. The pre-surgical tests and evaluations needed by these kids cost only $200 each. No More Poverty has responded with their support and hopes others will donate to the cause. If you would like to help support these efforts, please donate directly to CES7 at http://www.ces7.org/donate-now.

“My brother Julian and I are pleased to support Charitable Endowment Support and their efforts on behalf of these orphans. We invite you to do the same by contacting CES7 directly at ces7.org with a generous donation,” says co-founder of No More Poverty, Michael Omidi, MD. “It’s amazing how little is required to provide necessary medical and surgical services in developing countries. Two hundred dollars won’t buy you much in the American medical arena, but in the Philippines it’s all that’s needed to prepare these kids to receive important, necessary surgical care.”

Charitable Endowment Support (ces7.org) serves as an umbrella to organizations that enhance the life and welfare of people battered by seven common maladies of the impoverished: despair, desolation, oppression, illiteracy, poverty, crime and society’s ills. The non-profit organization seeks humanitarian opportunities around the world where their empowerment programs can address a community’s lack of sufficient economic, education, training, and spiritual resources and offer hope for a brighter future.

No More Poverty (nmp.org) is a not-for-profit charity organization with a pending 501(c)(3) application founded by brothers Michael Omidi, M.D. and Julian Omidi. The organization seeks to end poverty at home and abroad by supporting the efforts of like-minded charities and agencies. Current efforts are focused on increasing awareness of and donations to charities already doing great work to address poverty and its staggering effects throughout the world. The plan is to soon expand our activities to include fostering business development and job creation in disenfranchised areas.
