Helping Visa Students

Helping Iranian Foreign Visa Students
Iran's economy is so bad and the currency is doing so poorly that the Afghan migrant workers are fleeing Iran to go back home to Afghanistan, for their currency, Afghani, is now more valuable than IRR. With the Iranian Rial at a free fall, Iranian foreign visa students have a hard time covering their education costs in fore currencies. Couple of them could not afford to come back to school after the Summer holidays.

We must help them out!

Here are a few practical suggestions on how the community can help the students:
- Give them an unused room you can not be bothered to rent out
- Rent them a room in exchange for occasional babysitting or help & companionship for the elderly
- Money transfer: When sending money to your parents in Iran, instead of using a currency exchange service, give CAD$ to students here in Canada & they deposit IRR to a bank account in Iran. Online bank money transfers are now done instantaneously; it can be done right in front of you. Help the students out by giving them a favourable & reasonable exchange rate
- Give them a job
- We can write letters to UVic/RRU/Camosun Student Awards & Financial Aid Offices explaining their plight and requesting a favourable look on their student-aid application
- Maybe UVic Iranian Students Association & the انجمن can cooperate and hold a monthly disco night at the Vertigo for the community to come together, have fun, and raise funds for the students
- We can recommend them for free rent in exchange for house sitting

Student Housing

Food For Thought

Khod Rahaagar, the bulletin of Hezb-e' Iran-e' Aabaad, argues that inoculating Iran against reproduction of dictatorship & winning the next revolution is predicated on forming organized political parties. For the best news analysis, watch newscast on YouTube or listen to their podcast
