The birth of a child is the happiest moment in the life of a parent. When the newborn arrives, the cares of the world disappear, lost, as the parents are enchanted with their creation. Those cares, although temporarily gone, will sometimes affect the newborn child: clothing, food, diapers, and other goods that cost money which a family might not have. It was with this in mind that in 2002, Armenia Fund created the Ororots Program.
Just as a cradle keeps a baby safe, the program assists families with the most need so that they feel protected in their most vulnerable months right after a new child is born.
Until they are one year old, children receive packages filled with the things any newborn child needs: diapers, soap, baby food, clothing like jackets and socks. The help varies depending on the age of the child. Once they’re a few months old, the babies get toys, too.
The impact of these packages is immeasurable and although the cost would be out of reach for any of the families that receive them, each one costs only about $150. The packages are sent to needy families once every three months. (click here for full article and more) http://blog.armeniafund.org/
