MAHAK charity bazaar was held on December 19 – 20, 2013 serving around 5000 visitors.  There were nearly 50 stalls, run by MAHAK volunteers, offering handmade cloths, home ware, food, toys, fresh juice, handicrafts, cosmetics and Hafez poetry.  
One interesting thing that happened during this festival was the display of Yalda Night elements on a dedicated table set with watermelon, pomegranate and dried nuts.  Yalda is one of the most celebrated traditional events in Iran which marks the longest night of the year.  Every year, on December 21st, Iranians celebrate the arrival of winter, the renewal of the sun, and the victory of light over darkness on Yalda Night.
 
The Presence of Popular Figures
 
The atmosphere benefitted immeasurably by the presence of celebrities and social VIPs who mingled openly with everyone around.  MAHAK is fortunate to enjoy the support of all the strata of society including well-known artists and athletes who not only actively support cancer-stricken children but also take time to make them happy by their sheer presence and support.
 
Revenue Generated by Bazaar
 
This bazaar managed to raise IRR 3,340,894,992 which as always will be spent on social support and medicine for treatment of children suffering from cancer. 
 
We are grateful to all the volunteers and supporters from the youngest to the oldest who assisted MAHAK in holding this bazaar and hope that one day with your support, we celebrate the remission and full recovery of children suffering from cancer with the ever-expanding family of MAHAK.
