Aregak’s Physiotherapy & Ergotherapy Program
Manvel captures the hearts of everyone around him. Due to his nervous system disorder, the five-year-old struggles with many activities others take for granted. Last year, he began attending Emili Aregak Center for physical, speech and music therapies. We’re able to provide all of these services for free thanks to supporters like you!
When he arrived to our center last year, Manvel couldn’t sit up on his own. Now, he can! Plus, he’s already walking with support, speaking more clearly and socializing well with other kids.
The Emili Aregak Center provides a range of free-of-charge therapies to more than 150 children like Manvel with special needs in Gyumri, Armenia. Annually, 60-70 children participate in physical and occupational therapies. Physiotherapists work to help children strengthen their muscles and improve their flexibility so they can experience greater health and wellness, and in some cases—like Manvel’s—learn to crawl, stand, sit up and walk. Through occupational therapy, children develop sensory, motor, perception, communication and life skills.
Your donations will fully support Emili Aregak’s Physiotherapy and Ergotherapy Programs for one year;
$13,500 ($6,750 x 2) annual salary for two physiotherapists and
$4,250 annual salary for one occupational therapist.
