The Women’s Guild of the Armenian Church of America (Eastern Diocese) donated more than 1,000 new backpacks, which will reach children in orphanages and schools throughout the country.
Along with paper and pens, each bag contained a special message inside: “We Armenians never forget the importance of education, despite all hardships. We know that you and your friends with courage face the current hard conditions. We will pray every day for you.”
Bags will be given out throughout the coming weeks.
