Updates from Children's Home of Gyumri
Lilit was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia, and osteoarthritis of both hips.
Levon was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, osteoarthritis of the left hip, and deformity of the feet.
Both received surgical procedures that will help Lilit and Levon with mobility, pain reduction, and the start of rehabilitation. They both now have a chance to walk properly!
The health condition of Arsen is not improving. He has problems with walking and walks with a stick as his leg is swollen. He rarely comes to Orran, instead food packages are delivered to his house. From time to time, he has to visit the doctors in Yerevan. The doctors are not sure whether his leg surgery will be successful since Arsen has hemophilia A. If not treated promptly, joint bleeding can lead to permanent joint damage and disfigurement. Arman who is Arsen’s main caregiver, was given funds to attend driving classes to be able to find an employment.
Armine Dokholyan is in her second year of studies at Vanadzor State University Department of English language and literature. SOAR continues to support her with educational expenses and clothing.
