The visit to the Gyumri Orphanage was very emotional. The Orphanage children (aged from 1 month to 6 years) had eyesight and spinal health problems.  Though, in the recent years the Armenian government has been making efforts to improve the conditions of those children, still there are numerous problems and needs to address. Ms. Ruzanna Avagyan, Orphanage Director talked to the guests about the challenges they are facing.
