FAR’s child protection staff recently reunited a family after two young teenagers (both 14 and 15 years old respectively) were referred to the Children’s Support Foundation Center (CSFC) in Yerevan. Their single father, unemployed, broke, and unable to care for them, left them at the Child Protection Night Care Center of Kapan, which closed down shortly thereafter. After coming to CSFC, the girls told staff about an older sister they hadn’t seen in more than 10 years. After careful research, CSFC specialists discovered that she’s now a student at Yerevan University who grew up in the Gavar Orphanage. She’s currently supported through FAR’s Gulamerian Scholarship Program, which enables older orphans to pursue higher education. Together at last, these girls will receive continued support from the FAR programs that reunited them.
