Quilts to Warm Vulnerable Populations in Armenia

11:17 Sep 23 2014 Yerevan, Armenia

Description
Government funding to orphanages, retirement centers, and boarding schools in Armenia is often extremely limited. The average income per family is around $2.50-$3/day, and resources such as blankets are prohibitively expensive.

Quilts have been distributed to residents of over 65 of these institutions, providing comfort and warmth during the impending winter months as well as through the life of the Quilts. Recipients included the elderly, orphans, the socially vulnerable, and the mentally disabled.

Partner: United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)

Estimated number of recipients: 11,250

Departure date: October 22, 2012

Distribution Date: January-March 2013
