I have been sitting on this post for about 5 months now and I wanted to write it sooner but I wanted to wait till I was further into the program before I talked about my decision.
Meet Armine My World Vision Sponsored Child. Isn’t she precious? Armine lives with her parents, 1 sister, and 1 brother. Her parents struggle to provide for the family.
Armine is growing up in a poor community in Armenia. Due to the 1988 earthquake that destroyed the city of Gyumri, housing is still very impaired and decaying. Apartments have bad sanitation and no heat when it is needed. The usual diet consists of potatoes, bread, noodles, beans, oil and greens. Meat and fruit are scarce. It is generally mild in the summer, but winters can be harsh.Armine is in primary school and she enjoys drawing. She helps at home by working with mother doing household tasks. She likes to play with dolls. She is in satisfactory health. I have heard that the winters get really bad there any many people use those big shipping crates for homes.
