Iran ,33% of Iranians Living in Utter Poverty line, Sleeping Hungry, homeless living in graves

Monster Of Poverty And Hunger Swallowing Iran

Iran is being swallowed by the monster of poverty and hunger, a true picture showing the reality of deep poverty that has afflicted the majority of Iranian population, and a fact that even regime officials and media have eventually acknowledged in part no matter how hard they’ve tried to deny it with their manipulated figures.
The figures that regime economists, officials and media release on the extent and depth of poverty, unemployment, the gap between the rich and poor and its resulting social harms like slum dwelling, homelessness, selling babies and body organs, prostitution, hunger, etc. are really shocking and frightful.

Iran's Economy In A Tailspin, But Why?

ran is currently facing a financial crisis, with its currency, the Iranian rial, dropping to record lows in the past few months. In April alone, the value of the rial dropped by a fifth. The rial is now worth almost half what it was when President Hassan Rouhani took office in 2013.
The Iranian Regime is trying to set the exchange rate at 42,000 rials to the dollar, as opposed to the current 60,000, but the market will not allow for this. Still, the Regime has threatened harsh punishments for anyone in Iran who will not exchange rials at this artificial price.

Unemployment in Iran is 45 percent among university graduates alone
Official figures cite the head of Iranian regime parliament’s Planning and Budget Commission say, 5-6 million university graduates in Iran are out of work.
Speaking durding a special TV news program, Gholamreza Tajgardoon said that three million 200 thousand of the country’s active population as well as three million 950 thousand of inactive population are out of work, adding “of the country’s total active population of 25 million 790 thousand, 22 million 588 thousand are working while the remaining three million 203 thousand are out of work.”
“Among inactive population with higher levels of education, there are five million 425 thousand out of work, meaning we have nearly six million unemployed graduates whose economic capacities are being wasted”, says Tajgardoon.
50% of university graduates unemployed in Iran
The unemployment rate of university graduates has been of great importance in recent years and has now turned into a major challenge. In addition to 36 percent of the unemployed being university graduates, about 51 percent of graduates are unemployed and looking for work, according to the state-run Tasnim news agency report on November 29, 2017.
About 34 percent of all graduates and 52 percent of graduated women are inactive.
According to the 2016 General Census of Population and Housing, the total number of unemployed people in the country was 3,258,000.

Iran-Poverty compels pregnant women to sell their unborn babies
Poverty compels pregnant women to sell their unborn babies
“If you are looking for an unborn baby to adopt since birth, contact this number as soon as possible.” The shocking ad was stuck on a wall in one of Tehran’s streets.
Although posters like “newborn baby sale” or “children on sale” are not new, they are receiving increasing media attention as they are becoming more frequent. Such ads are seen on the walls in many streets, hospitals, and clinics.
The spread of homelessness and poverty in Iran has put many women in difficult circumstances. A large number of homeless pregnant women are selling their unborn infants often for less than $600 provided that their babies are born healthy. Some impoverished women rent their wombs.
“Baby-sale” advertisements are also circulated on the internet and can be found on banners on many websites. One such banner reads: “I am a 32-year-old woman and 4 months pregnant. Those who do not have any children and want to adopt a child, please let me know. In this way, they can have a baby. On the other hand, I am a single woman with no source of income and cannot raise a child.”
The state-run Mehr news agency, on August 22, 2015 cited a social expert as saying, “I have personally slept among those who sleep in cardboard boxes in the streets… Unfortunately, in these districts, I witnessed sale of kids. The conditions are so critical that they sell the fetus in the mother’s womb before birth for 1 million and 750 thousand toumans ($314).”

Poverty has taken a heavy toll on women as the regime deprives them of equal opportunities for employment and economic participation. Rouhani’s deputy for women and family affairs has acknowledged that poverty in Iran has taken on a feminine face. (Shahindokht Molaverdi, the state-run ILNA news agency, September 6, 2014)
Iran Regime Interior Minister: Unemployment Rate in Some Cities Reaches 60%
Acknowledging the impact of unemployment on increasing social harm, Iranian regime's Interior Minister said: despite the unemployment rate of 12 percent in Iran, unemployment in some Iranian cities reaches 60 percent.
Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said on Sunday, October 1, in an interview with state-run ISNA news agency, that social harm is “more acute” in areas where unemployment is high. He did not mention the cities where the unemployment rate reaches more than 60 percent.
According to government reports, despite the fact that the overall unemployment rate in the country was 12.4% last year, unemployment in Kermanshah province (west of Iran) was 22% and in Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari province (southwest of Iran) was 20.2%. In Kurdistan province (west of Iran), unemployment is announced to be more than 15 percent.
In this regard, based on the unemployment data of 397 cities in Iran, the state-run Mehr news agency reported in 2013 that the unemployment rate in Bashagard city, in Hormozgan province (southern Iran), was 53 percent the highest unemployment rate in Iran.
According to the government statistics, Javanrood city in Kurdistan province with 47% and Saravan in Sistan and Baluchistan province (southeast of Iran) with 45% were the second and third highest unemployment cities in Iran respectively.
Ali Rabiei, Minister of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare of the Iranian regime, has said the number of unemployed is 3.2 million people, and the Center for Research of the regime’s parliament announced that it is between 6.5 to 7 million people.
Rabiei also recently acknowledged that the Iranian economy does not have the “strength and capacity” to solve this problem.
The Interior Minister also said on Sunday regarding the unemployment situation in Iran that the unemployment rate of educated people is “much higher” than “being announced on average” but did not give a figure on the unemployment of educated people in Iran.
Hassan Taie, deputy minister of cooperatives, labour and social welfare of the regime, had previously announced that the unemployment rate of university graduates was “between 21.5 to 22%".

Disabled woman has to feed from the trash bin
Disabled woman has to feed from the trash binA moving photo has been recently published on the internet of a disabled woman in Bandar Abbas, southern Iran, who is searching for food and other usable items in a trash bin.The Bandar Abbasi photographer who published this photo wrote, “This disabled woman provides for all of her life's needs including food from trash bins.”This and other images that have been published by the NCRI Women’s Committee bespeak of extreme poverty and particularly the feminine face of poverty in Iran, where women are deprived of job opportunities and enjoy no public or social support and have to do anything to provide for their own and their families’ most basic needs.
The Accelerating Pace of Poverty in Iran
The Accelerating Pace of Poverty in Iran
The accelerating pace of poverty extension in Iran is due to the innumerable corruption of government officials. The harmful effects of poverty among the people are so obvious that even the state-run media and regime officials are inevitably forced to admit this fact.
“Right now, there are about 10 to 12 million people in absolute poverty,” said Parviz Fattah, head of the so-called Khomeini Relief Committee. “But if the indicators are accurately determined and we want to raise the level of welfare of the community, then 16 to 20 million people in the country can be found in the circle of absolute poverty.”
Of course, since he knows that this is not a real figure, he immediately adds: “It is very difficult to define absolute poverty in our country, and if we want to elaborate on it in details, it has a political burden and it should be seen whether the authorities are ready to undergo the political burden of this issue in front of the global assemblies? (Iran regime state TV, 17 July 2017).

About 50 per cent of girl students do not go to high school in the border provinces of Iran. Rezvan Hakimzadeh, the Education Ministry’s deputy for elementary schools, said, “In many border provinces, high schools cover only 50 per cent of girls in high school level. This means that between 40 to 50 per cent of girl students remain out of school.”“This is shocking,” Hakimzadeh said, adding, “Possibly, the reason for some of them quitting school is early marriage.”  (The state-run ILNA news agency – September 9, 2017)

Catastrophe of Housing and Its Consequences in Iran

According to Tasnim News, he claimed that there are 9 million worn-out urban textures in the country (Tasnim News, August 28).
Bad housing refers to the residential homes, single rooms, or houses that do not have entrances, toilets, and utilities. Bad housing is also related to the unofficial residences spreading in the city. Nevertheless, the bad housing in rural areas refers to the weakness of constructions, materials, as well as the number of rooms.
According to the Secretary of Comprehensive Housing Plan and based on the minimum standards, each person must have at least 12 meters of residence in a residential unit. In addition, the building must be safe in terms of strength and materials used for its construction and there are minima like a bathroom, toilet, and kitchen in each unit.
According to the government officials, more than 7 million families i.e. 33% are struggling with poverty in the country. In other words, they are not able to afford housing expenses. The Deputy of Housing Foundation, Javad Haghshenas also stated," The figures show that 2 million and 570 thousand families of the first and second deciles are the tenants below the poverty line and they even cannot pay the rents (Iran Newspaper, August 22, 2017)."

NCRI - In an interview with the state-run ISNA news agency on July 14, 2017, Deputy Director of Iran regime’s Association for the Protection of the Rights of the Child, , acknowledging the increase in child labor in the country, said: “Unfortunately, despite the fact that global statistics on child labor have been declining, we are witnessing increasing number of working children in Iran.”
Tahereh Pajouhesh pointed to the root of the problem, which is the structure of the regime, and added: “As long as the economic structures of the country are not reformed and the poverty is not eradicated, this process will continue.”
“When the minimum wage of a worker is 800 thousand Toman (about $300) per month, as the rental prices skyrocket, it can be seen with a thumbnail calculation that with this salary you cannot even have a suitable shelter,” she said

The dream of buying a house in developed countries can come true with 14 years of savings from one-third of the income.
Tasnim also quotes from the Statistics Center of Iran that, "At least 0.4% of the Iranian population lives in camps and tents."
At the end, Tasnim News writes, "6 million people in Iran stand in such a financial situation that can own and buy a private villa."
interviewing with state-run media on July 6, head of the executive committee of the so-called Khomeini's command admitted that the poverty situation in Iran is extremely inappropriate, with 12 million people living below the absolute poverty line and 25 to 30 million people below the poverty line.
