Quilts to Vulnerable Populations in Armenia

03:44 Sep 22 2014 Armenia

Description
Armenia was hit by a devastating earthquake in 1994, which it is still recovering from. Those efforts have shifted away from addressing immediate needs to focus on longer term development. However, the government has limited funds that can be allocated to vulnerable populations, such as orphanages, retirement centers, and boarding schools. In addition, these populations are especially vulnerable to the cold winters.

Missions Quilts will be distributed to institutions that deal directly with vulnerable elderly, children, and persons with physical and mental disabilities.

Quotes:

Armavir #1 Special School director Liana Asatryan: "I wish I could give a hug to each American woman for making these beautiful quilts for our children. The quilts prove love and devotion invested in them."
