Scottsdale Business Owner Funds Nepal Orphanage

waiting for mamu

At this year's Sedona Film Festival, David Neishabori of AZADI Fine Rugs and one of Arizona Foothills Magazine's Most Eligible Phoenicians, surprised producers of the film "Waiting for Mamu" with a surprise donation of a year’s worth of rent for a Nepal orphanage. "Waiting for Mamu" is a a film by Morgan Spurlock and Susan Sarandon about the CNN 2012 Hero of the Year, Pushpa Basnet. The orphanage that Neishabori donated to, Butterfly Home, was created as a safe haven for children whose parents have been imprisoned; otherwise, children whose parents are sent to prison and who lack other guardians are locked away along with their parents.

“I was so tremendously moved by the film and the tireless work of Pushpa to create a haven for abandoned children that I wanted to help any way I could,” Neishabori says. “I will never forget the look on producers Susan Sarandon and Pushpa’s faces when we presented the gift to them at the Q&A session during the Sedona Film Festival.”
