Please Help My Friend Hossein

From Yichi Zhang

I am raising money for my friend Hossein, who saved for a long time for his dream to study in Europe. He had enough money, but he lost some of his savings due to the recent digital currency market crash.

Please Help My Friend Hossein

Hossein's big dream was to study in the Netherlands after graduation. He saved money all his life to achieve this goal. Recently, he got enough money and received the admission of Saxion University successfully.

Unfortunately, he put some of his money in digital currency. Due to the recent market crash, he does not have enough money to pay for the university fees any more. Some might say that it is not smart to invest in digital currency, but Iranians have little choice. They have no access to usual investment products due to international sanctions. The Iranian currency also keeps losing value, therefore there is no point in keeping it. In 2018, 1 US dollar was approximately 40,000 Iranian rials. Now, it is about 300,000 Iranian rials. (The exchange rate on Google is not the actual market rate. You can use websites like to view the live market rates)

He needs to pay the university 24,289 euros before 1 July 2022. Now, he is 5,000 euros short. He would like to ask for your help.

Hossein is a very kind and helpful man himself. I stayed in his house when I was in his hometown. He help me with bicycle maintenance, visa extension and overcoming language difficulties. He has also let over 300 travellers stay in his house for free over the past few years.

Although the funds collected on this website are of donation in nature, but Hossein would like to pay you back when he has the financial ability. Please fill out your name, the amount of donation and contact details here after donating:
