Up, Up and up we go: Molfix and its presence at MAHAK
At end of this year MAHAK had 2000 new and extraordinary visitors; Molfix Balloons. MAHAK’s vision to run hope, raise a smile and emphasizing on cancer is not the end, came alive with 2000 colorful balloons floating in the skies of Tehran and DarAbad. The happiness expressed on the faces of hundreds of MAHAK children was as palpable as the exceptional blue sky in Tehran on that day.
In addition to thousands of visitors, just like previous bazaars, well-known celebrities also attended this event in order to show their love and support for the children of MAHAK. 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 make them happy by their sheer presence and support.

The Bazaar managed to raise 7.900.099.383 Rials, which as always will be spent on medication and treatment of children with cancer.
MAHAK fully appreciates all the kindness and support benevolent members and volunteers selflessly provide which, through these types of activities, help children remain children, giving them hope and conviction, preventing them from becoming reclusive, and thus assisting them in maximizing their chances for recovery and returning to normal life afterwards.
