Julian Omidi and Michael Omidi - Who We Are
Founders: Julian Omidi and Dr. Michael Omidi
NO MORE POVERTY was founded by the Omidi brothers, Julian Omidi and Michael Omidi, M.D. Moved by the daily struggles of the impoverished throughout this world, they established this not-for-profit charity to support dedicated individuals and compassionate charities that are truly making a difference in the world.
“Making a difference” is a common phrase in today’s vernacular, and it can easily be construed as trite. That’s understandable, but it truly sums up the brothers’ feelings about addressing the plight of the less fortunate. Through NO MORE POVERTY, the brothers want to reach out, offer support, education, counsel, and help improve the lives of the disadvantaged.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others
- Dalai Lama
The charities and causes NO MORE POVERTY supports vary -- from ensuring safe drinking water for developing areas to providing school supplies for needy scholars. The premise is to support and promote those that are helping others. There is strength in numbers and the Omidis’ objective is to increase the public awareness of novel and effective charities and help them grow exponentially to help even more people.
Suggestions for additional charities that NO MORE POVERTY and the Omidis can support are welcome. The impact can be local, national, or global; individual or community based. Submit suggestions for worthy partners through NO MORE POVERTY’S Facebook page or using the Contact Us function within this website.
The Omidi brothers, Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi appreciate the input and invite everyone to join the fight for NO MORE POVERTY!
