2012 Grant Recipient: Camp Aparan

The Grant Committee of Friends of Armenia (FOA) was happy to approve the application for an FOA Community Grant in the amount of $221.13 USD in support of the project, Sports Equipment for Children with Disabilities Summer Camp. The FOA Grant Committee found that the project merited approval as it was presented as an easy-to-implement, cost-effective project that will positively impact more than 360 children from an often underserved population in Armenia. FOA is proud to support this project and Camp Aparan. Congratulations Chris Sherwood and Mnacakan Sargsyan!
