Sewing Benefits Women, Staff Faced Crisis

Spitak, Armenia

 

Our Sewing Project is succeeding, and the women started working on another endeavor--making tote bags with traditional designs. Happily, they found partners to sell the bags. The success of the project helps them to generate income for their livelihood!

Microbusiness, Camps, and Courses Benefit Villagers

Spitak, Armenia

 

This month, the women have actively run their microbusiness. The tailors’ shop opened and they mend clothing, make bedding sets, and curtains. The shop is an old shipping container, which has not been used for a long time. They cleaned it, put in a new floor and some furniture. They did it with their own resources without going over budget. It is encouraging that they are learning to use the resources on hand rather than waiting for others to invest.

Women Honoured and Helped with Training

Spitak, Armenia

 

This year, we had a longer winter than usual. It snowed until late March. On one hand, this was good for nature and agriculture as for many years we had mostly dry winters. People in Jrashen and Spitak are ready to start their work in the fields in April. They have cabbage and potato fields ready for planting. On the other hand, it was a very difficult time, as many struggled to pay the bills for electricity and gas for heating and cooking.

War Increases Refugee Population

Spitak, Armenia

 

The intense war in Nagorno-Karabagh continued for six weeks. The Armenian army and the whole nation fought against international terrorism. Neighbouring countries brought thousands of terrorists to fight against Armenian soldiers. We are relieved that the war in Armenia is over for now.

Wartime Causes Great Sorrow and Needs

Spitak, Armenia

 

Dear Friends, 

 

On September 27, the Azerbaijani army, with the support of the Turkish government, attacked Nagorno Karabagh, as we now call the territory Artsakh. The Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh immediately declared martial law and a full-scale mobilization.
