[FAR Schools]: Armenian Church and the WGCC donates gifts to Gyumri’s disadvantaged.

April 14, 2010

FAR, the Armenian Apostolic Church, and the Women’s Guild Central Council (WGCC) of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America (Eastern) recently traveled to the Shirak province to distribute much needed school supplies and toiletries to more than 500 children. The gifts were given out just in time for the Armenia’s April 7 holiday celebrating Beauty and Motherhood.

Most of the childrens’ mothers were present at the Ounjian and Catholicos Vazgen A schools for the distribution. With so many of the parents in this region out of work, such gifts will benefit entire families of these children, and the women graciously accepted the help.
