Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MIAMI - Dec 21, 2018 - This Christmas season, Heal the Earth through the Arts Foundation has joined Miami Rescue Mission to feed the homeless. Dr. Farshchian, Founder of Heal the Earth Foundation; was happy to share in the Christmas spirit of giving and wanted to help feed the homeless. Dr. Farshchian said, “I am here with the Miami Rescue Mission, to ensure that the homeless have a hot meal and feel some Christmas cheer and hope. During Christmas, it is nice to give back however one can.”
In the summer of 2017, inspired by Michael Jackson’s philanthropic work with the Heal the World charity organization, Dr. Alimorad Farshchian created “Heal the Earth through the Arts.” This charity holds telethons live on Facebook; the telethons help to raise money for the homeless in Miami. Farshchian has stated in several interviews that this is his way of giving back to his community and continuing Michael Jackson’s legacy.
The Miami Rescue Mission website states: “Since 1922, the Miami Rescue Mission | Broward Outreach Centers, The Caring Place, has served the homeless and needy of South Florida. Our Broward Outreach Centers were first established in 1992. Our Miami-Dade and Broward Centers serve over 1,300 men, women and children each day. There are approximately 800 people enrolled in our residential life-changing programs. At the heart of these decades of serving those in the greatest need are our core values.”
According to the Miami Herald, the Miami Dade Homeless Trust released its annual “point in time” count in February 2016, showing that countrywide, the number of both sheltered and unsheltered homeless is up two percent.
“The Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust’s annual ‘Point-in-Time’ (PIT) census shows the number of homeless individuals and families in Miami-Dade is down significantly. The total count of 3,526 is an 8 percent decrease from the previous year – a decrease of 321 individuals, and the lowest total homeless count on record since the Homeless Trust’s inception. The unsheltered count was slightly up with an increase of 19 persons,” according to a Miami Dade County government press release. “75 percent of unsheltered persons surveyed were men. 38 percent of unsheltered persons and 43 percent of sheltered persons surveyed indicated they had a disability, including a mental health, substance abuse and/or physical disability. 44 percent of unsheltered persons surveyed indicated they had no source of income, compared with 27 percent of those who were sheltered. Both sheltered and unsheltered individuals indicated their greatest need was housing.”
Dr. Farshchian, the medical director for The Center for Regenerative Medicine, has over 18 years of experience in the field of regenerative medicine, helping thousands suffering from arthritis, macular degeneration disease, COPD and congestive heart failure.
