Minister of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare in a message on the occasion of the Welfare Week:


Today we need coherence to achieve social justice more than ever

In a message on the occasion of Welfare Week, Shariatmadari emphasized: "We need to make every effort to shape a comprehensive coalition of all to address the shortcomings and cases of injustice with respect to people with disabilities, the socially disadvantaged persons, female headed households, street children, poor and homeless children, the elderly (especially the lonely ones) and all under the umbrella of welfare organization and other support institutions.
Minister of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare, Mohammad Shariatmadari, in a message on the occasion of Welfare Week said: "Today and at a time when coronavirus is spreading shadow of poverty not only across Iran but all over the world, we must have further empathy and rely on religious, cultural and human beliefs more than ever in this region to help each other.”
Part of his message reads as follows:
Achieving justice and prosperity has been a long-standing dream of all human beings. One of the important goals of the Islamic Revolution has been to provide social justice, eradicate poverty and generate wealth for the benefit of all, but as the Supreme Leader has repeatedly emphasized, we have done little to achieve social justice. To achieve this goal today, more than ever, we need coherence, empathy and effective policy-making to achieve all aspects of social justice. We must make every effort to form a comprehensive coalition of "all together" to address the shortcomings and cases of injustice against people with disabilities, the socially disadvantaged persons, female headed households, street children, poor and homeless children, the elderly (especially the lonely ones) and all those under the umbrella of welfare organization and other supportive institutions.
Today, at a time when the outbreak of the infamous Corona virus has spread the shadow of poverty, not in Iran but around the world, we must have empathy and rely on religious, cultural and human beliefs more than ever in this region. Let's reach out each other and form an all-encompassing movement to help one another. Both our religious culture and the new global approaches to welfare and social security emphasize the key point that the respect for, dignity and self-esteem of those who receive help must be preserved.
