The vocational trainings are ongoing. We do our utmost to have a positive effect on the lives and well being of our residents and their children. We also always teach them to appreciate their God-given gift of motherhood.
Starting 2016 we have a new program. We visit different maternity hospitals and surprise mothers with presents(newborn clothing, blankets and pampers) for their newborns. We have already given the presents to more than 500 newborns.
We continue to help Syrian refugees who come to our ALCF center.Almost every day we give kitchenware, blankets, warm clothing to at least 7-9 families.Armenia hasn’t seen such a cold winter many years and this is one of the reasons our letter of requests amount has multiplied, people mostly ask for warm clothing and blankets.
