“Hye Geen” Pregnant Women’s Centers operate in Armenia from 2002 upon the initiative of AGBU Southern California’s “Hay Geen” program.

“Hye Geen” Pregnant Women’s Centers operate in Armenia from 2002 upon the initiative of AGBU Southern California’s “Hay Geen” program. These centers provide consulting and medical assistance to pregnant women in different regions and villages of Armenia. Recently, expanding its activities, AGBU Hye Geen came up with a new initiative of presenting clothes to the socially insecure families, most of which living in extreme poverty. The program is being implemented jointly with the Pregnant Women’s Centers, Armenian Apostolic Church and the RA Ministry of Social Welfare. April 26th was the first day of distribution of clothes. On that day, the Armavir Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church hosted the most socially insecure and needy families of the region, who, according to the previously prepared list, came to receive the clothes sent to them as a humanitarian assistance from USA. Four days later, on April 30th, a similar distribution of clothes took place at the “Nora Injijian” pregnant women’s center located at Yeghvart Hospital. Present at the first two events were AGBU Southern California District Committee Chairman Haig Messerlian, AGBU Armenian Representation Interim Director Hovik Eordekian, “Hye Geen” donor Mary-Louise Injijian and AGBU Armenian Representation Finance Officer Lena Baghdassarian. The families that received the assistance expressed their deep gratitude to AGBU, “Hye Geen” members, personally Mrs. Injijian and all those involved in the implementation of this significant project. Once again they underscored the importance and efficiency of the “Hye Geen” initiative and the pregnant women’s centers. The distribution of clothes will continue in Vanadzor and Talin Pregnant Women’s Centers, as well as in Tavush Diocese and Gegharkunik. This year, AGBU Young Professionals of Northern California gathered for the 13th annual YPNC Winter Gala, which raised $8,500 for the AGBU Hye Geen Pregnant Women's Centers in Armenia providing prenatal care and education to women in Talin, Vanadzor and Yeghvart. Since its inception, YPNC has generously donated over $67,000 to worthwhile programs locally and in Armenia.
