Monthly newsletter July 2016
July was an extremely busy month for ALCF. Our founders came to Armenia!!! And every day since they arrived, they have been striving to make the life of the Shelter residents more interesting and productive through new programs and initiatives.
Our deepest gratitude to all those who visited us and donated funds and other necessities. Our guests have a very positive effect on our Residents. They stop thinking about their problems and feel loved and cared for.
Myradoon is full of life. Our residents are always busy. During sewing lessons ZepureOhannessian from OC came to our center and taught our residents how to paint on cloth. They painted lots of items for themselves.
As soon as our founders came to Armenia they organized baptism ceremony. We celebrated the baptism of twelve people: Children with their mothers and grandmothers.
The staff of ALCF has a busy schedule . They went 7 villages in different regions of Armenia and distributed humanitarian aid: clothings, shoes, toys, walkers.We received a lot of letters of requests, list of extended families from the communities who need clothes, shoes, bags and other necessary items. We continue to help Syrian refugees who come to our doors. Seta Ghazarian /founder/ gives special attention and extra aid to Syrian refugees as they have come to Armenia with nothing.
