[CSFC]: A Second Chance

August 18, 2009

Another child has a second chance at life thanks to FAR’s Children Support Center. Armine, 5, was admitted to the center about a month ago after a concerned resident discovered that she and her family were barley surviving in an undeveloped area of Ashtarak.

Armine, her mother, and her father had called an underground hole their home for five years, during which time they were isolated almost completely from Armenian society.

Today, Armine is receiving psychological counseling and therapy as well as social support from the center. Step-by-step she is being rehabilitated by the center’s excellent staff, who teach her basic daily habits like how to bathe and eat meals from a table instead of off the ground, and how to integrate into society.
