Dear friends, Our group visited Hermine and her family in Mets Masrik Village in Gegharkunik Province. This hard-working family, who needed a boost and sustainable income, is now able to work and make their way out of poverty.
The fist and most important dilemma they had was the lack of gas in the house and they were burning firewood even in the summer to cook a simple meal. Well, we solved the problem by installing gas. Now they will be able to cook without making the whole house hot.
We also took them 9 sheep, as the father is specialized in keeping sheep and making income from them. This will be their sustainable income for many years to come.
In addition, the mom mentioned that because of their boy's allergies, the doctor recommended sheep milk.
We also took them a gas stove, a refrigerator, clothes and shoes for all members of the family, school stationery for children, a lot of toys and hygiene and household items.
All the members of the family were simply happy, it was an unexpected surprise for them to get so much help, and they were opening one box after another to uncover their gifts.
Mother and grandmother spoke words of gratitude and many blessings to us, saying that they never thought that they would be treated like this one day and now they will start working with a new force and stabilize their social status.
I want to thank all of you for being with us, trusting us, supporting our projects, and together, we will help one family at a time to have a normal life and make their own living without relying on the small government help. Together we made the another family happy. Blessings to you all!
