Ayo! recently announced that one of its projects was funded in record time. Tatik-Papik, which aimed to provide new bedding to the residents of FAR’s Vanadzor Old Age Home (VOAH), was funded and implemented in a flash solely thanks to the DoubleTree by Hilton Yerevan.

As soon as they heard about the idea for the project from the Ayo! team, the DoubleTree’s staff said they wanted the hotel to help.

“We had barely finished our pitch when DoubleTree by Hilton’s General Manager Luciano, and PR and Marketing Coordinator Lusine, said they wanted the hotel to fund the project—no questions asked!
The next thing we knew, a shipment of new bedding was waiting to be delivered to VOAH,” said Jemma Safaryan, Ayo! Development Manager.

Hotel staff also accompanied the Ayo! team to distribute the new blankets, mattresses and pillows to VOAH’s 55 residents.

It was a pretty emotional visit.

“This gift clearly made a difference to VOAH’s elderly residents. They seemed truly touched about a project aimed at improving their quality of life,” said Jemma.

All of us at FAR, along with Ayo!, wish to thank the DoubleTree by Hilton Yerevan for their incredible support and involvement in this project.
