Vafa's Friend

Dear friends,
We are working on a new project! We are creating an email list of animal lovers around Iran who can be connected and rely on one another's help. There have been many occasions when we were in need of a friend to check out a location or condition of an animal and other necessities but did not know any one, so the job did not get done.
If you are willing to join this list, please send an email to Friend.Vafa@Gmail.com  with subject line "Vafa's friend", and include your name, last name, the name of the town you reside in and if possible your phone number.
Example: Shokoofeh Rahmani, Tabriz, 8910...
Regards to all of Vafa's kind supporters,
Vafa Team.
