A church here helps an orphanage in Gyumri. By means of an envelope action, a church collects money here for Famtofam who spends this money on the purchase of urgently needed goods.
The Voortgezet Gereformeerde Kerk (VGKN) of Harkema held an enveloping campaign in the spring of 2016 among its members. This action has raised € 1,400.
It was agreed with the church that this money would be spent on an orphanage in Gyumri.
On the advice of our contact person Karine we opted for “boarding Institution of children care and protection N 2”. 90 children aged between 6 and 18 stay here. These children no longer have parents or there are problems that these children can not live at home.
On Monday 10 October, a board delegation was received by the director mrs. Anahit Karapetyan in the orphanage. In the afternoon we went shopping with the staff in Gyumri and on Thursday 13 October we went back to see that all purchased goods had been delivered. A video of what you can see here is made of this visit.
