HELPING THE CHILDREN OF THE GYUMRI F. NANSEN ORPHANAGE

A fundraising evening to help the children of the Gyumri F. Nansen orphanage was organized recently at the initiative of Dr. Chuck Hajinian and with the participation of representatives of the Armenian community of Wisconsin and AGBU friends. Pillows, sheets and other bed clothing for the orphanage children were purchased with 6,000 USD raised during the evening by about 60 guests, who committed themselves to continuing the fundraising event in favor of the Homeland. On November 12, the AGBU Armenian Representation personnel visited Gyumri and handed over the purchased goods to the orphanage. The administration and children of the orphanage expressed their gratitude to our Armenian-American compatriots and the AGBU. In phase 2 of the project sportswear and shoes will be purchased for the children of the same orphanage.
