Participants in Dzithankov: 11
First aid kits distributed in Dzithankov: 11
Our third village to receive training as part of the 100 Villages Commemorating 100 Years project is Dzithanqov.
Dzithanqov is located in the Shirak Province of Armenia with a population of Approximately 1,262 people. Due to poor road conditions and an elevation of nearly 6,000 feet the roads to this village are cut off during the winter time. The locals shared stories regarding the challenges of surviving winters here as there are limited supplies for sale and no pharmacies in the village. By stockpiling resources and and relying on each other during emergencies, this village has been able to grow and continue to thrive. For these reasons, the women at this training were especially grateful for the opportunity to participate and the donation of first aid supplies to help them manage medical emergencies.
A special thank you to Hrayr and Zaroug Kabakian for sponsoring this village.
