March

Last year we sent out a plea for Mushegh who needed life altering and life saving surgery to reconstruct his jaw and complete much needed dental repairs. He wore braces to help straighten his teeth, and they are now properly aligned. Mushegh is now able to eat normally for the first time in his life! They are now preparing for his next surgery, placing an implant to restore the jaw contour. He will be hospitalized for three days following the surgery.

Last December SOAR sent out an emergency plea for Satenik. A reconstructive surgery was needed to correct knee deformities on both her knees. The state did not cover the cost of the implants needed to perform the surgery.
With the generous response of our supporters, SOAR was able to fund the cost of the implants!
