Dear FAR Friends,

During this season of joy, we would like to take a moment to tell you how happy we are to have had you as a member of the FAR family during 2017. This year, we have been able to continue to make a difference in both broad, sweeping ways, and on the most personal level.

We continued to implement programs, which are palpably transforming regions in Armenia, like Gyumri and Tavush, from those saturated in a hopeless legacy of tragedy and poverty, into those that are gradually becoming more vibrant and sustainable. Then there is the impact we’ve helped to make on individuals and on the families who can now give their children a healthy meal, opportunity for education, or those who can finally afford long-awaited medical treatment for their disabled or sick children. And much, much more.

It all was possible thanks to you. It is people like you who make Christmas what it was truly meant to be: a celebration of love and compassion for those less privileged, a time of healing and renewed strength.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
