[FAR New York]: FAR Event on May 18th to Benefit the Most Vulnerable Children in Armenia.

  • March 26, 2012 11:52 am

“Loving a child is a circular business…
the more you give, the more you get, the more you get, the more you give.” -Penelope Leach

Children are the most vulnerable population in society. Because they cannot protect themselves, their care is everyone’s responsibility. In Armenia, poor socio-economic conditions and underdeveloped infrastructure make child protection one of the most critical issues in the country. Many children in Armenia experience violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation and exclusion each and every day. Such violations limit their chances of surviving, growing, developing and pursuing their dreams. FAR Children’s Center works to prevent these violations and empowers families and children to live healthy and productive lives.

FAR Children’s Center is a unique place with professional staff, which includes social workers, psychologists and nurses. The staff provides individual care and support to children between the ages of three and 18 years, as well as their families, by addressing the core problem of each child. With the help they receive at the Center, most children return to school and reunite with their families. The Center also tries to find foster parents for children who would otherwise end up at an orphanages or “special schools” for disabled children.

Children’s Center Director Doctor Mira Antonyan will travel to the U.S. to attend the event on May 18th. She will talk about the state of child protection in Armenia. Dr. Antonyan will also show event attendees how critical donor support is for the Center. The institution would not be able to carry out its life-changing programs for at-risk youngsters without the kind contributions from its generous supporters.

Under the auspices of Archbishop Khajag Barsamian, Primate and President of FAR, and together with Honorary Chairperson Mrs. Sirvart Hovnanian, FAR invites everyone to join this important cause to benefit Armenia’s most vulnerable children.

Please purchase your tickets for the Banquet – Barahandes in honor of Armenia’s Children at www.farusa.org or by calling 212.889.5150.

Entertainment: Live band from Montreal.
