Support for the Kharpert Home for Special Children
The Kharpert Home for Special Children is an orphanage located in the village of Nor Kharpert serving more than 250 children with varying degrees of developmental disabilities. The orphanage is a state run facility that receives governmental support to provide these vulnerable children with their basic care and education.
Children with disabilities in Armenia are generally kept sheltered from society. These children do not attend school, but rather attend classes at the orphanage and work on arts and crafts.
Furthermore, some of the children use wheelchairs, canes, walkers and other medical equipment to aid their mobility. Due to normal wear and tear, the home is often in need of outside aid in order to replace these much-needed items.
Sponsorship of this project will help obtain four new walkers for the children as well as support their arts and crafts program.
