Who We Are
NO MORE POVERTY was founded by the Omidi brothers, Julian Omidi and Michael Omidi, M.D. Moved by the daily struggles of the impoverished throughout this world, they established this not-for-profit charity to support dedicated individuals and compassionate charities that are truly making a difference in the world.
“Making a difference” is a common phrase in today’s vernacular, and it can easily be construed as trite. That’s understandable, but it truly sums up the brothers’ feelings about addressing the plight of the less fortunate. Through NO MORE POVERTY, the brothers want to reach out, offer support, education, counsel, and help improve the lives of the disadvantaged.
The charities and causes NO MORE POVERTY supports vary — from ensuring safe drinking water for developing areas to providing school supplies for needy scholars. The premise is to support and promote those that are helping others. There is strength in numbers and the Omidis’ objective is to increase the public awareness of novel and effective charities and help them grow exponentially to help even more people.
Suggestions for additional charities that NO MORE POVERTY and the Omidis can support are welcome. The impact can be local, national, or global; individual or community based.
About 1.75 billion people in this world live in multi-dimensional poverty, meaning extreme deprivation in education, health, and standard of living. This devastating statistic and the myriad of challenges faced daily by the world’s impoverished moved Michael Omidi and his brother Julian Omidi to found NO MORE POVERTY.
NO MORE POVERTY seeks to end poverty at home and abroad by supporting the efforts and partnering with 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.
The Omidis and NO MORE POVERTY do not accept public donations. If you want to support a world with NO MORE POVERTY, you are encouraged to donate directly to the charities featured on this website.
NO MORE POVERTY has applied for 501(c)(3) status.
