San Diego has an extraordinary doctor. He works at Tri-City Hospitals Intensive Care facility day and night. And when he is not there, he rescues dogs and horses! As if that were not enough, now he is working with a US veteran charity, Patriotic Hearts, to turn his horse ranch into a Veteran healing center. Warriors affected by combat, and the members of their families, now have a place to recover and recuperate. Caring for and forming a bond with wounded horses and dogs has been proven to be exceptionally helpful in restoring physical, emotional and psychological health.
In addition, Dr. Kaveh Farhoomand wants to develop gardens and groves of fruit trees at his ranch to feed veterans and their families. This aso is a healing and healthy activity. He also desires to also create an Art program. Too, his ranch is located in the Tanaja Ecological Preserve, which has beautiful paces to hike and even a waterfall.
Dr. Kevah Farhoomand grew up in America. After completeing college at San Diego State University, he completed his medical training in Chicago, before returning to San Diego. His parents owned property in Persia. When he was a young boy, he travelled with them to Iran, which was a favored ally of the United States. Unfortunately, soon after arriving in Iran to sell the property they owned, the Islamic Revelution happened, which overthrew the Shah, and replaced him with hard-line Muslims. led by Ayatollah Khomeini. — Because his family were Jewish Christians they were especially hated. They had to hide for several months before being able to escape by climbing over Mt. Ararat in Turkey!
In this season of difficulty, America is discovering unsung local heroes. Dr. Kaveh Farhoomand is certainly a hero in the greater San Diego area. — Do you want to help him to care for rescue horses and dogs? Will you enjoy feeding and grooming these dear animals who are starving for affection? Do you know of any US veterans in the San Diego/Murrietta area who would also enjoy doing this?
Horses 4 Healing Heroes is the program Patriotic Heartshas created to assist Dr. Kaveh with finding volunteers, experts, and with the development of a Board to oversee, find funding, and to direct the development of the ranch.
