We are holding this fundraiser in loving memory of our dearest friend, Bahareh, to support Water For People, a non-profit organization to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services accessible to all.
During Bahareh's time at North Carolina State University, she volunteered as a research assistant on two water treatment projects and joined the nonprofit North Carolina Section of the American Water Work Association and the North Carolina Member Association of the Water Environment Federation. Once she moved to Canada. She became an active member of Water Environment Association of Ontario. An active volunteer with the Young Professionals Committee for many years, Bahareh first joined the Public Engagement and Education Committee as the young professional liaison, and she stepped into the role of co-chair in 2019.
Bahareh was the definition of pure-at-heart. Always positive, always helpful, to people in need as much to her friends and family. She is also remembered for a dedicated and strong work ethic and a passion for the water industry.
