We have enjoyed a fortunate tenure here at the Sepehr Egrari MD FACS PC Plastic Surgery Center, and we desire to show our appreciation by engaging in philanthropic activities in our community and in our world.
Care for our world
MSF is an international medical humanitarian organization providing aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need.
Dr. Egrari and his staff are very involved in MSF in providing significant financial help in times of need. If you wish to join us in helping, please click here to donate to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
An example of their inspirational work: the 2010 earthquake, that measured 7.0 on the Richter scale and struck about 15 kilometers southwest of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams on the ground were instrumental in caring for the injured and establishing of various programs for the rehabilitation of this devastated area.
To better the world
The Mona Foundation serves its mission through the development of human resources, promoting service learning and volunteerism, bridging the digital divide and supporting our adopted projects through financial grants and material resources that these projects need for their everyday operation or for their development plans.
Our practice has chosen the Mona Foundation as our direction for giving back to the world. We believe the Mona Foundation’s purposes serve the ultimate ideal: to bring people of all backgrounds together in service to each other across cultural, national, religious, racial, and economic divides to systematically contribute our human and material resources. The Mona Foundation strives to create a world devoid of poverty, war and disease where every member of our human family actively participates in the process of our human progress and development.
Our staff has volunteered to donate monthly to a pool, which will be matched by the practice and donated to the Mona Foundation. We recently met a $100,000 goal towards the operational fund of the Mona Foundation.
We invite you to join us in our quest to give back and truly make the world a better place. Donate today at: www.monafoundation.org.

The campaign for children
Children are the greatest gift of our lives. They embody the hopes of the future of our planet. Every child deserves appropriate healthcare.
For over 100 years the Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center has provided extraordinary care for our children, regardless of their ability to pay. Uncompensated patient care amounted to over $40 million last year.
We at Sepehr Egrari MD FACS Plastic Surgery Center are proud to have actively made major contributions to Children’s Foundation and Guild Association. The well-being of our children should be a priority for all of us.

To end the ugliness of violence
Since 1981, Eastside Domestic Violence Program (EDVP) has grown to become the largest provider of services for domestic violence victims in Washington. A support group for battered women and two volunteer safe homes were the first services offered, followed a year later by a 24-hour crisis line. Today, in addition to the crisis line, EDVP operates two confidential shelters, offers additional safe housing in the community, runs support groups for women and children, provides extensive community education and trainings, and advocates on behalf of victims.
Over the years, EDVP has been recognized for innovative programs. They created the Community Advocacy program that provides links to victims through police departments, hospitals, social service agencies and more. They launched ‘My Friend’s Place’ – a transitional housing program for families dealing with both domestic violence and substance abuse – the first program of its kind. And they worked to expand community education with the Domestic Violence Goes to Work Campaign.
The need for their services has increased along with community awareness. Future EDVP goals include youth education, expanded housing options and more legal services for victims, as well as strengthening their infrastructure to ensure the stability of the organization.
Sepehr Egrari MD FACS Plastic Surgery Center is pleased to do our part in supporting this worthy cause, by sponsoring a mother and her two children during this past holiday season for giving. Everyone in our office bought presents from a wish list provided by the family.

To feed the world — start here at home
As Washington’s largest hunger relief agency, the non-profit organization Food Lifeline is working to provide nutritious food to hungry people in Western Washington. Each year Food Lifeline rescues and distributes nearly 22 million pounds of food to its network of food banks, meal programs and shelters in 17 counties of Western Washington, feeding nearly 600,000 hungry people.
As supporters of Food Lifeline’s mission to end hunger, we aim to be a part of the network that is working together to create change to ensure that hungry families do not have to go without a meal, and hungry children get the proper nutrition to meet the challenges of learning in school.
Food Lifeline depends on the work of thousands of wonderful volunteers who donate their time and skills every year. Egrari Plastic Surgery Center is pleased to be among those volunteers, donating our time to help this worthy cause.
