The Prison Angel

The Prison Angel, prisoners knew him by this name. This was the title of a kind, compassionate and calm doctor who served the prisoners, especially the patients, with a cheerful face and a tireless spirit.
Dr. Farhangi was voluntarily assigned as the doctor of the 3rd Ward of Evin prison, and he took care of prison patients with the help of the blood pressure machine that his beloved wife had brought to the prison for him with a lot of effort.
One of the prisoners said “If it wasn't for him, we would be dead. Because he gave us strength and relieved the internal pain and suffering of the prisoners. He visits all the patients every night and gives them medicine.”
Another says “Every morning, Dr. Farhangi filled a plastic bag with medicine and went one by one to the rooms of Ward 3, which had 14 rooms in total, together with a security guard and gave medicine to the patients.” Everyone respected and had a special interest in him. He was brought to prison because he was a Baha'i...
