Let’s Keep People’s Hearts Warm
“I am no longer alone; I am surrounded by kind people like you. You have taken up all my burdens and covered all my needs. You have warmed up not only our homes but our souls too. Thank you. ” (Dustumyan Imast, Vanadzor)
“Warm Winter” is a social project that Armenian Caritas has implemented in three regional areas of Armenia - Shirak, Lori and Gegharkunik Regions. Armenian Caritas’ goal is to help the beneficiaries to survive during the severe winter times.
During the winters of 2013 and 2014, the “Warm Winter” project has covered the heating expenses of about 690 lonely, elderly living in Gyumri, Vanadzor, Tashir and Gavar cities by paying their electric or gas bills. The project resulted in reducing the risk of frequent illness among our beneficiaries caused by inadequately heated homes.
Project is funded by Caritas Austria, US Catholic Bishops Conference, CNEVA
Financial support for this project is provided by the municipalities of Gyumri, Vanadzor, Gavar and Tashir.

Ability is Availability of Possibilities
The PSA is produced in the frames of “Information and Support Center for Persons with Disabilities” project.
It promotes inclusion of persons with disabilities and creation of equal possibilities for them. The main message of the PSA is that availability of possibilities for people with disabilities contributes to their inclusion in everyday life. In the same sense, the lack of possibilities could make a person without any disabilities a kind of a “disabled person” who might meet a lot of obstacles and difficulties of overcoming of them could make them feel “disabled”. Thus, Ability is Availability of Possibilities.
