Ayo!’s Hope for Hrazdan, an emergency project that launched in February 2016, has surpassed its 100% goal! Today we can proudly announce that all children attending the Hrazdan Day Care Center for Children with Disabilities will have full support for their operations in 2017. We would like to send a special thank you to the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan for partnering with us from the outset with a $14,335 cost-share, which reduced the amount we needed to raise by half. We would also like to send special thanks to all the parishes, groups, families, and individuals who made their generous contributions to this project. It means the WORLD to these kids! Between what we have raised thanks to your generosity, and the U.S. Embassy’s Democracy Commission grant to the Hrazdan Day Care Center for Children with Disabilities, the Center now has the $28,304 it needs to provide social, educational, and healthcare support to nearly 150 children in Hrazdan and surrounding villages. Their families are beyond excited to hear that their children will have access to essential therapies for yet another year and will receive help learning how to grow harmoniously with their peers. We are happy to say that these vital services will continue – all thanks to your care, trust, and generosity.
