MEMBERS OF THE AGBU YEREVAN SCOUT MOVEMENT HELP THE CHILDREN OF F. NANSEN ORPHANAGE

In November 2010, members of the AGBU Yerevan Scout group initiated a charitable project to help the children of the Gyumri F. Nansen orphanage and of poor and needy families living in Gyumri. Together with “Noyemi” NGO and “Fridtjof Nansen” foundation of Armenia the AGBU scouts announced a charitable gift drive to collect clothes, shoes and toys for the Gyumri children. Through AGBU’s worldwide network representatives of the Armenian community of USA and Syria also participated in the gift drive.

On December 5, two days before the 22nd anniversary of the 1988 horrendous earthquake, the AGBU Yerevan Scouts, headed by the Scout Council and the Executive Secretary of the AGBU-AYA Lebanon Kevork Santourian, arrived in Gyumri and visited the Gyumri F. Nansen orphanage and several families living in temporary metal cabins. All the collected presents were distributed to the children to remind them that they are not alone and that there are people in the world who care about them. The meeting with the orphanage children passed in a very friendly atmosphere. The scouts stayed for the whole day, had lunch together and watched the beautiful art program full of singing, dancing and recitation prepared by the orphanage children.
