[FAR Scholarships]: Jerair Nishanian Scholars Receive Christmas Surprise.

December 21, 2010

Christmas and New Years are very special holidays for all of us. For years it’s been a tradition at FAR to present our program beneficiaries with holiday gifts. We wish to help everyone, regardless of age or location. Presents are provided by FAR through the generous contributions of our kind supporters, who year round support our work financially as well as spiritually.

One of this year’s particularly special giving efforts was dedicated to Jerair Nishanian scholars.* Each of them received 10,000 AMD for the holidays. They were elated to receive such wonderful gifts from you, our generous supporters. They also expressed their deepest gratitude for their benefactor Jerair Nishanian.

Beneficiaries of our educational programs also received some great support. This year, nearly 200 students received new winter shoes for Christmas.

For all of you who have given, thank you.
