Svetlana Grigoryan

Svetlana Grigoryan, one of the children assisted by the Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR), is in dire need.

Svetlana has been diagnosed with periodic syndrome, disorders characterized by recurrent episodes of systemic and organ-specific inflammation. She lives with her mother, sister, and grandmother in an old "domik," where hygiene, comfort and space are virtually non-existent.

SOAR provided her family wood to stay warm through the winter months. SOAR staff applied to have the home supplied with a gas heater, but were refused because of safety issues.

We have found that a complete renovation was too costly and the search of a suitable home has been in progress. We have just recently found one in a location that would be perfect for Svetlana to be able to receive the medical assistance she needs. Because the level of assistance exceeds our Sponsorship Program, a special Fund has been created exclusively for Svetlana and her family. All funds raised will be used exclusively and entirely for the purchase of this home.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
