On International Children's Day, the "Children's Help Fund" organized a happy gathering. The purpose of the event was to bring smiles to the children of our heroes. Father Aaron's prayer signaled the beginning of the event. Cheerful and funny cartoon characters of Sweet Home were invited to the event and did everything to make this day of miracles a happy holiday for our children! Guests from the Armavir regional administration and other officials were invited as well. And at the end, we gave gifts sent by the founding director of our team, Mr. Armen Hakobyan, to boys.
"Children's Help Fund" continues to be consistent with the mission of our organization. A few days ago, our team, led by our president, Mr. Armen Hakobyan, met the deputy governor of Armavir Marz, Mr. Argishti Mekhakyan. During the meeting, we discussed our future action plan. Soon, we will resume our support for the boys of the region. With our little help, we try to be useful to those children whose fathers sacrificed their lives for us and our children.
Today, on International Children's Day, our fund organized an event. It was dedicated to the children of our heroes, who are our future!
