The ShoeBox Sharing NonProfit Organisation located out of Fresno City, California, and founded by American-Armenian Kristina Garabedian, aims at helping children livng in Armenia. Over the years, the NGO has been providing extensive support to children from Vayots Dzor region, children having rest in Siranush camp who lost their parents during the war, and children from socialy vulnerable families by providing them with clothes, shoes, stationary and the like. In 2016, through the support of the ShoeBox Sharing NonProfit Organization, gift boxes full of school supplies and toys were distributed to the children supported by Tsiatsan Kindergarten of Yeghegnadzor City and to the Child Development Centre of the nearby Chiva Village. It is note worthy that the NGO carries out its activities by involving children from Frezno’s schools and individual benefectors. The role and dedication of Cristine in this wrk is invaluable. Her father Robert Garabedian, who is a benefactor and dentist, encourages and supports her.
Syunik NGO is deeply thankful to both Kristina Garabedian and her Shoebox Sharing NGO for their thoughtful and attentive care towards the children of Armenia.
