Food for OLA families
Since the COVID-19 lockdown in Armenia, dozens of orphans and vulnerable children are no longer able to receive care and services through OLA. In fact, social orphans were ordered by the government to return to their food-insecure families who live in extreme poverty.
No longer receiving institutional care, OLA has instead been delivering food on a weekly basis to the children and their families. While previously OLA was responsible for feeding only the children, they are now providing enough food for 275 members of 55 families.

A thank you letter from Kharberd for providing them with medical supplies needed due to Covid19:
Thanks to our generous supporters, SOAR was able to send funds to Birds’ Nest Orphanage. They had additional needs and decreased resources due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The kids were so excited that they were able to make cookies for Easter!
