MYRADOON
 

Our resident’s life become more interesting and more colorful when they participate in cultural events. In the beginning of January, theaters donated us tickets for children and adult performances. Our residents went to the Puppet Theather for the children. Mid January we took them to a performance organized by another church. Another evening, we took them to Yerevan City tour, and they enjoyed Yerevan by night.  Christmas evening, they went to Ejmiatsin Mother Cathedral.  After holy liturgy, the Christmas dinner was waiting for them in our center!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We continue our Bible Study classes, with the leadership of Armenian Apostolic church priest. In January Father Partev did the Christmas celebration, the water Blessing (Jrorhneq) and blessed the whole center. All our residents plus people from neighboring villages attended the ceremony. He also blessed our food and then we celebrated the birth of Jesus and his Baptism.
Two of our little residents continuously cried every Sunday to participate in the communion. Due to them not being Baptized, they were not allowed to do so. We organized a baptism specially for them with our Priest. They both got baptized in St Mariam (Astvatsatin) church.
 now they both participate in the liturgy ceremony at the alter with Ter Partev  and serve our church as real Christians.
In the center of the dinning room a beautiful table with fruits and desserts was waiting for them to celebrate the event!
May the love and grace of God always be with our children.

 

We express our gratitude to

  • Arevatsag” Children Support Center for passing free physiological therapies with our abused children .
  • General Doctor Suzan Onanyan, for her continuously volunteering to take care of our elders and our residents and getting donors for the medications we need.

 AID TO THE COMMUNITIES
 
We had an extremely busy month. As it gets colder lots of individuals come to our center for warm clothing, jackets and blankets. We continue to help the Syrian Armenians as well. We drove hundreds of kilometers to get to far villages and give aid to those who are in extreme need for it. During this month, we visited 4 villages in Lori, then continued our way to Tavush region and distributed clothing and other items to the villagers of Gosh and  Khachardzan.
We gave warm winter clothing to the participants of ”Feed the Elders” program, on ALCF premises, we put a table full of clothing and shoes and they took whatever they needed.

They informed us that a residential building of 11 homes have caught fire and burned. The residents became homeless, they were left in an open air. We gave a quick response (the next day) to their request. We donated them warm winter clothing, jackets, blankets, tooth brushes, tooth pastes, shoes, kitchenware and other necessary items.

NEWS & EVENTS 
 

We had an unforgettable trip to Sevan  with our Myradoon residents and “Feed The Elders” program participants.
At our elders request, we planned a Sevan trip on Friday  and Seta Kurdahi sponsored the trip expense and Hrach & Araz Ghazarian sponsored the usual Friday meal. With the head of Mrs.Ghazarian,staff,  shelter residents and elders had an amazing trip.
 

 

Every time before our staff goes to deliver aid to a community,the warehouse keeper  makes all the clothing bags by their names according to the lists sent by municipalities.  On the distribution day village mayor sends a van so we put all the bags in it and follow them and organize the distribution process ourselves. More than 400 people receive humanitarian aid on each visit.

Our staff was busy visiting villages of different provinces.  In Kotayk province  The villagers of Alapars were waiting for us .  The distribution  was well organized.  90 needy families received  humanitarian aid. 
After distribution  of Alapars  village we went to Lusabats camp where all the campers are children from needy families, we donated them T-shirts, lots of Stainless steel kitchenware for the camp kitchen and also tomatoes from our green house.

 

In our recent newsletters, we had written about Lusine and her daughters: after 8 years we organized their meeting.
As we promised to the village mayor, we went to help all the needy people in his village and once again Lusine had another chance to see her daughters.
We distributed humanitarian aid to 105 needy families in Abovyan village, Ararat region. Villagers were waiting in front of Mayor’s house. We provided them with clothing, shoes, bags, toys and other necessary items. 
After distribution Lusine gave presents to her daughters supplied by ALCF and also money which she earned by working in the green house and kept it for that special occasion.
Both Lusine and the girls were very happy and we hope that this will be the beginning of their relationship and from now on they’ll meet more often and without our intervention.

GUESTS & EVENTS 
 

July was an extremely busy month for ALCF. We had lots of guests from different parts of the world who visited us and donated funds and other necessary items.
Our guests have a very positive effect on our residents.

  • Fuller Center visited our facilities with 15 of their participants headed by Leo Manuelian of NJ. They toured and had lots of questions. They were all flabbergasted with our activities and were emotional with shelter residents.
    We prepared a dessert and fruit table for them. 
  • AYF Youth Corp of CA visited our facility. 25 young adults enjoyed a delicious meal toured the facilities, played with the children and left with heavy hearts and contentment. 
    They promised to help our foundation in packing and shipping from CA. They played the piano and sang Armenian national songs.

It has been 2 years since Hratch and Araz Ghazarian started sponsoring “Feed the elders” program every Friday. In addition to Tuesdays. This makes our elders feel healthier. 
Hratch Ghazarian’s family visited our center during the Friday luncheon. Elders were very happy to meet them. They prayed together, then helped us serve the elders. After lunch they spent their time with our residents and the children. 

 

 

MYRADOON
 
Myradoon is  full of mothers and children. This month with the request of an Armenian bishop from Egypt, we picked up a pregnant woman from the airport who came to live in our shelter from Egypt in her last month of pregnancy. She escaped from Egypt to get her baby an Armenian passport and be Baptized an Armenian Christian. We helped her with all the paperwork, she received her Armenian passport and delivered a baby girl in Republican maternity hospital. She called her Arev (the English translation of the name is Sun.)
We had another successful and heart touching story in our shelter. One of our residents who had been living in our shelter  almost 2 years now  with 2 baby boys, turned out she had a serious psychological trauma 8 years ago that she kept it from us and tried to hide it for all this time. Working with our psychologist we found out she had 2 daughters from a previous marriage that she had been threatened and kept away from  seeing them for 8 years now. 
Our staff noticed she was getting more and more depressed and having lots of headaches. Her anger was being directed on these two baby boys.We gave her an ultimatum to stop hitting the children or she will be expelled from the program and the children will be taken away from her. She decided to speak.We offered to be an intermediator to arrange for her to meet her daughters after 8 years. 
Talking with the mayor of their village, he agreed to help us get the OK from the father and the 2 daughters to see their mom.Now the mother is  smiling all the time. 
Soon we’ll arrange another meeting as we offered to go to the village and distribute clothing to the needy families of that village.

Our moms and children spent an amazing time on Sunday after church. Our founders Mr. & Mrs. Ghazarian took our residents to Echmiadzin Tashir Pizza. They ate delicious pizza,  The children had a lot of fun in the play area.
