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.

 

MYRADOON
 

This  month we were busy with celebrating parties and events .As the number of our residents increased ,so did the number of birthdays. We had 4 birthday parties and 2 (adamhadig) tooth parties this month. The lovely atmosphere that governs our Myradoon,  and all these events have a good influence  on their psychosocial state.

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.

We distributed necessary items to families in need. As always,we received lots of letters of requests.
We continue to help Syrian refugees who come to our ALCF center in bus loads crying for heaters, dishes, pots & pans, portable ovens in addition to cloths jackets and blankets.
We have purchased so far more than 60 heaters and 30 ovens, 50 pots & pans and 30 portable cloth drying racks here in Armenia.
We need more as the demand is great and we cannot possibly do it without your help!!!!!
We gave blankets, baby layettes and pampers to all new born babies in hospitals.
