No More Poverty cofounders, Julian Omidi and Dr. Michael Omidi, donated to the building fund of a Center for special needs children in the country of Belize. The Belize Inspiration Center, founded by the country’s first lady Kim Simplis Barrow, will provide therapy and services to the poor and disabled children of Belize when it is launched in early 2014.
Julian Omidi and Dr. Michael Omidi and their charity, No More Poverty, are pleased contribute towards the construction of the Belize Inspiration Center, which will provide services to children with disabilities as there are currently very limited opportunities for children to receive muchneeded therapy. The center is the brainchild of Kim Simplis Barrow, the first lady of Belize and the country’s special envoy for women and children.
“Children are the most vulnerable to life impacts of illness and poverty in disadvantaged areas,” said Julian Omidi, cofounder of No More Poverty. “Ms. Barrows has been working on behalf of women and children for many years.. We are confident that her efforts with the Belize Inspiration Center will help even more people in need and we are glad to be a part of it.”
When it is complete in early 2014, the Belize Inspiration Center (http://www.belizeinspirationcenter.org) will give children support, care, stimulation and opportunities for participation and decision-making, all of which are essential elements for growth and holistic development. The Center will cater to children 0-16 years, giving priority to those with special needs and disabilities to create a reverse “integration child care model.” It will also provide specific stimulation and childcare and will also train parents, helping them develop practices at home to stimulate and support their disabled child.
The founder of the Inspiration Center, Kim Simplis Barrow, is the wife of Belize’s Prime Minister, Dean Barrow, and currently serves as the country’s Special Envoy for Women and Children and the Global Ambassador for Special Olympics International. In 2006, she founded the Lifeline Foundation (http://www.lifelinebelize.org), a successful charity relief organization that helps to provide food, medicine, clothing, and other necessities to children who lack these essentials due to poverty or natural disaster.
No More Poverty (http://www.nmp.org) is a not-for-profit charity organization (with a pending 501(c)3 application) founded by brothers, Dr. Michael Omidi 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 expand our activities to include fostering business development and job creation in disenfranchised areas.
