A Shared Joy is Doubled Joy


The children of Shushi’s Shogh Center were thrilled to host a birthday party in their premises. The young Apresyan family from Stepanakert has established a tradition of celebrating their child’s birthday with children from vulnerable families who never have an opportunity to participate in these type of celebrations. For this second birthday celebration, the Apresyans selected to hold their party at the Shogh Center.  The day was festive and full of fun entertainment and tasty treats: clowns, dances, games, and birthday cakes were in store for these children. We respect the noble gesture of the Apresyans and hope that other families will follow their example in sharing their values and kindness with our children.
