Hi, my name is Tanya and I'm one of the lucky grandkids of the best grandfather in the world, Agasi Papik. On March 24th, our world lost its light.
Agasi was a double-leg amputee who suffered from an array of health issues. He recently got fitted for prosthetics, which gave him (and us) so much hope and happiness to look forward to. My grandfather's wish was to help wounded Armenian soldiers receive bionics. Our family came across OQNI ORG (https://www.oqni.org/) and immediately knew it was the perfect organization to raise money for in honor of my grandfather.
A little about OQNI -
We are an Armenian-based NGO founded by an interdisciplinary team of Diasporan Armenians across the US, Canada, France, UK, Germany, and Armenia.
Our mission is to develop advanced mental health solutions and bionics to empower the amputee community. We are driven by a holistic approach focusing on both psychological and physical empowerment; while also creating a public good by training and educating students, veterans, and amputees.
Please consider donating to help provide free prosthetics to the people who need it in Armenia. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated. I know my grandpa will happy to make his dream come true for others.
