Monthly Newsletter December 2017


The shelter is full of women  with their children.  Now we have 15 women and 26 children, moreover, there are 5 mothers and 7 children living in the “Post Shelter” units.  December is full of birthday parties, events, gifts, joy etc.
As the holidays were closer, we were busy with organizing parties, preparing presents for all the participants of our programs and kindergartens of  Ptghunq and Musaler  who had a New Year performance and invited us to take part in it.  
Our shelter little residents surprised us with their great New Year performance. The children were, reciting poems and singing. Our special gratitude goes to Armine, who is coming as a volunteer and plays a piano for our children.














At the end of December, like every Friday, we started the day with “Bible Study” and then gave our elderly a festive luncheon. A surprise was waiting for them-in our big hall we prepared New Year’s gifts. The festive mood got to its top under festive music, the staff and the elders danced and enjoyed their time.
