We are summing up the results of our #TavushStrong initiative. Thanks to all of our donors. Together, we have been able to replenish shelters in 8 border communities in Tavush, Armenia, making them a safer place for both adults and children.
From now on, shelters will become safer for residents of Berd, Artsvaberd, Choratan, Tavush, Movses, Chinari, Nerkin Karmiraghbyur, and the border villages of Aygepar.
This became possible thanks to cooperation with the administration of the Tavush region. Our charity campaign, launched in July, was unprecedented, with many people, international and local organizations joining us, as well as our compatriots from the diaspora.
The shelters are provided with:
- water tanks with a tap,
- electric generators,
- rechargeable flashlights,
- sleeping bags,
- dispensers with essential medicines and supplies,

In Armenia, poverty can be witnessed pretty often, but there are stories of 60,000 people who live in extreme poverty, barely having an income of 23 384 AMD (56.2 USD) per month. Poverty strongly affects little children who usually lack basic living means – including weather appropriate clothing, heating of their houses, access to sanitation and hygiene supplies. These children comprise 28% of Armenia’s children.
