FAR Board Member Michael Haratounian Visits Armenia



This September, FAR’s Armenia office was proud to welcome FAR Board member Michael Haratounian, who visited Armenia with his wife Mrs. Mary Haratounian.





During their visit, the Haratounians were entertained at the Armenian Ministry of Social and Labor Issues as well as the Ministry of Education and Science. On behalf FAR, the Haratounians accepted the honors awarded to the national benefactor Harold Gulamerian. Later in their visit, Mr. and Mrs. Haratounian visited the Nubarashen Special School to admire the playroom and hallway, as well as the electricity and hot water supply systems, all renovated thanks to the Haratounian’s financial contributions to FAR.



The Haratounians were extremely impressed during their visit to GTech in Gyumri, and they admired the modern condition of the educational center. Last but not least, the couple had an unforgettable visit with the Gulamerian Scholarship Program beneficiaries at Vanadzor Orphanage. A special concert had been organized for the guests, and the children presented them with a handicraft picture created from of silk thread.
