Donation Made for Vanadzor Orphanage and Nubarashen Special School

January 18, 2010

This Christmas, FAR was happy to accept the generous donations of Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Mary Haratounian.   As a result of their generosity, FAR was able to implement some initiatives in the Vanadzor Orphanage as well as the Nubarashen Special School.  Gas Pressure Regulation equipment was purchased for the Vanadzor Orphanage, which should lead to a significant cost savings as well as an improvement in the natural gas supply.  Additionally, a water tank was installed to temporarily supply water to the orphanage kitchen.  At the Nubarashen Special School, FAR purchased  warm winter shoes for the children, and a vacuum cleaner for the school.  These incremental improvements in FAR’s facilities help to keep more children happy and healthy, and we greatly appreciate the support of our benefactors.
