Khosh amadin – Welcome! Hospitality has been an integral part of the Iranian culture for centuries. Operation Mercy began working in Qazvin, Iran, in response to an earthquake disaster in 2002. Since that time Iran has welcomed Operation Mercy’s development and relief projects. Today we work amongst disadvantaged Afghan refugees in Tehran developing life skills.

Operation Mercy Iran has been systematically training local NGOs in "leadership and project management skills", "HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment", "addiction prevention, treatment and reintegration", and "disaster preparedness and response" since 2010, and is now a training hub for capacity development of NGOs.
Operation Mercy educates and empowers disadvantaged Afghan refugees, especially mothers and young women. We currently educate 800 mothers and young women who are refugees from Afghanistan, by providing courses in English, computers, sports training and skills training. We provide special weekly and monthly seminars and workshops on critical issues related to building relevant life skills. Equipping these women enables them to have a better, more positive and stable future.
Some of the most vulnerable of the nearly 1 000 000 Afghan refugees living in Iran are people living with a disability and they are often overlooked. Operation Mercy has initiated a pilot project designed to empower Afghan refugees living with disabilities, as well as their caregivers, through consultations, support groups and referrals to specialized service providers.
