AMAA Shares the Joy of Christmas in Armenia and Artsakh

On January 9 and 10, the AMAA-Armenia and Evangelical Church of Armenia (ECA) jointly presented their Annual Christmas Programs at AMAA’s Yerevan Center at 18 Baghramyan Street. The Program was held in seven sessions and featured the AMAA-Armenia’s and ECA’s Hayasa Theatrical group presenting the play “Road to Home” to a capacity audience. Approximately 2,300 children and their parents attended these programs. .

Written and directed by Playwright/Director Nune Abrahamyan, the Play’s message to the audience was that if they are filled with love for people around them, think of others, help the neglected, and believe in the sacred miracle, they will find the way to the heavenly home. “Do your best for all.” “Do not give up when you have the gift to help the needy.” “Give children a Miracle.” Such messages and slogans echoed throughout the Center. “Letters of dreams” were hung on the Wishing Tree which was displayed on the stage. The characters of Charles Dickens and Queen Victoria became more influential and credible in the Play by younger and older actors, reinforcing the power of faith in our lives.

The AMAA-Armenia and ECA jointly held 72 other such Christmas programs in more than 45 towns and villages throughout Armenia and Artsakh, with a visit from Santa Clause and distribution of Christmas Joy packages.

Over 10,000 children received not only Christmas Joy Packages and visits from Santa but also hope that there is much kindness in the world today. We thank all our donors who supported our children in Armenia and Artsakh by donating to our Christmas Joy Program this year.
