Last Friday, the FAR Children’s Center hosted visitors Libbi Heffern, wife of U.S. Ambassador John Heffern, and the President of FAR’s Board of Directors Archbishop Khajag Barsamian.

The Center’s children warmly welcomed Archbishop Barsamian and Mrs. Heffern with a delightful dance performance.

Afterwards, the guests took a short tour around the Center to learn more about the children and the services that the Center provides.

Later, Children’s Center Director Doctor Mira Antonyan gave a presentation about the Center’s programs and also showed a film about the Center’s beneficiaries. Deputy Country Director Margarita Piliposyan presented on FAR’s other program areas, which was followed by lively discussion.
