AMAA Soup Kitchen in Stepanavan, Armenia Distributes Food to the Homes of Elderly Due to COVID-19
The Armenian Missionary Association of America, in partnership with its sister organization in France “Hope for Armenia” (Espoir pour l’Arménie) operates a Soup Kitchen in Stepanavan, Armenia for the past 25 years.
The state of Emergency in Armenia, due to the recent COVID-19, has also changed the operation of this Soup Kitchen. The Soup Kitchen continues to operate; however currently volunteers are delivering the food to the homes of the elderly, wearing gloves and masks to ensure health regulations are followed properly.
AMAA established the COVID Response Fund to help alleviate the financial hardships caused by the outbreak, acquisition of medical supplies, food distribution, access to health and social support services and other unforeseen consequences the outbreak may cause.
