RECAP: 3rd Annual London Event December 4, 2015 by Kim Our fundraising season started with an event on October 10th at the Hospital Club in London where 120 guests joined us for an evening of fun, delicious food, and live entertainment. Marjaneh Halati, Founder of OMID gave a brief presentation on OMID’s progress during the last year and its programs for the near future. Her talk was followed by a presentation by Nina Ansary, author of “Jewels of Allah”, about the situation of women in Iran. The proceeds of “Jewels of Allah” are donated to OMID.
