House of Esther – Spitak, Armenia … there … !

House of Esther – Spitak, Armenia

It’s truly a beauty to behold, when one sees one person, impassioned, committed to a task at hand, accomplish so much in 5 short weeks of their “vacation” time!  Please witness this man and his accomplishments … Vince Melkonian.

HoE – House of Esther, in Spitak, Armenia is a future home of transition, healing, and wholeness for refugees out of Syria and other needful locations.  Seeing that TCD-Transformational Community Development can happen in this setting, Vince is focused on allowing GHNI to serve alongside he and others, as they help some of the neediest people of Armenian decent, displaced in war-torn locations.

To accomplish this, much logistics have to happen in short order, especially as winter is fast approaching this higher elevation locale.

Pig pens were built.  Chicken coops were built. Manure, top-soil and fertilizer were brought in for establishing fields of farming.  Green-houses were established.  Crops planted in early Spring were harvested.  Dorms for refugees were configured.  Vision seminars for TCD were taught to those living there and locals.   Relationships between organizations were further secured, as UNHCR-Armenia, GHNI, ALEPPO org., and others came together to commit to this special place.

 

Further help is needed in finances, as we secure a manager for, and make all provisions needful for full-fledged self-sustainability or HoE.  Will you please consider these needs and all we all seek to accomplish here.   It’s a great semi-rural location for vetted refugees to re-establish life and become healthy again.   Donations can be made at:   https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/ghni-AM-House-of-Esther?code=Refugees%20in%20the%20Middle%20East%20Webpage

Thank you … Daniel!

    Looks like a great deal of work has already been done and that is good. I know you must get a lot more ready before cold weather. Keep us posted.
