Our Country Canada – A Beautiful Nation

What a great Canada day it has been. Great times. July 1st is Canada day. Beautiful start to a beautiful Month of summer.

I am a happy and proud to be born on Canadian soil, and I love living in this beautiful country.

Some people take Canada for granted, and complain about this and that, stereotype us because we have freezing cold temperatures and snow, but May I recall, were not the only country that gets freezing temperatures and snow, it just gets me on my nerves, grinds my gears when people talk about something or somewhere they really have no idea about, so they stereotype and make fun of things they do not understand and should not be made fun of period. Honestly it is one of the best countries to live in my opinion. What also gets on my nerves when people make fun of Maple Syrup, Hockey, Curling and stereotype us even more with so much. It is not funny and There is nothing to laugh about. Not everything is a joke.

We have a beautiful Nation, do not take it for granted and count your blessings that you are in Canada and North America. Take a look around the world with all the unjust and terrible things going on, on the other side of the world. Our minor daily problems we have is nothing compared to the major problems going on in war torn countries, where everyday is uncertain, and everything else in between.

Sometimes people don’t know how good they have it until they abuse it then eventually lose it, and taking advantage, and things for granted with our free healthcare system and among everything else for example. It will someday not be there anymore for everyone’s reach. When we take care of our people, home and our country, it will take care of us with the right people who do not have any hidden agendas and being true leaders for a better tomorrow to guide us to the right path. Just saying.

If you have not visited Canada, if you are planning to visit, to move or anything, it will be a great decision. You will love Canada’s beauty and some of the people.

CANADA is the true, north, strong and free and our home and native land, with our true patriot love. I AM CANADIAN AND I LOVE YOU CANADA!

The Toronto Ice Storm and Areas Around – Be Careful Out There

On Saturday December 21st, 2013, on the first official day of winter, a terrible ice storm hit the City of Toronto, GTA, and areas around, where over 300,000 homes were and are still without power, knocking down tree branches, trees, sparks from hydro electrical wires, and making it very dangerous for driving and being out and about. Many places have closed stores, restaurants and even churches were cancelled as Sunday approached. Many trees and other surfaces have thick layers of ice due to the rain, freezing rain and ice pellets that hit the ground.  Many people have put their skates on and started skating on the roads and on their driveways in the city, many pictures show that trees have been toppled on cars, driveways, and roadways creating havoc, blockage and so much more. Winter has hit Ontario, Canada very early this year and it has been a month of active weather with snow, sleet, and very cold conditions. We are officially in winter now, and we still have about 3 more months to deal with this all. This is the first time Toronto has been hit with an ice storm and it is the worst in History as it has been reported on television today.

Hope that people can get electricity restored in time for Christmas. This is not something people want to deal with before Christmas begins. Hopefully food in peoples fridge does not get spoiled, and hopefully people’s plans will not be put on hold. I pray that everything goes back to normal. Electricity is something that is so important and of value to people. I cannot imagine how people used to go without electricity back in the olden days. I want to say to people to stay safe during this active winter weather, and if you do not have to drive out if its not so important, please stay indoors, keep warm, and keep off the roads, and if you know any elderly people who live around you or have elderly people in your family, do keep in touch with them to make sure they are okay, and if they need anything or need to be with anybody right now, its a good idea to look after them and as well as anybody else who needs anything.

At times like this it truly shows peoples great heart and love for others to help them during this difficult time in this terrible ice storm. Its very great to be seeing people helping each other on the news on the residential streets, and giving each other a helping hand with clearing off the tree branches from the streets, and so much more. Hope all goes well and things will workout for the better in the end.

Never Be Afraid To Ask For Help When You Need It The Most

Have you ever had the issue of being afraid to ask for help when you need it the most? Have you ever been in a middle of a situation and you hesitate and think twice about asking for a hand in something? I am sure all of us at some point have felt the embarrassment of it, but I can assure you, it is not an embarrassment or a fear. I know a lot of us want to do things on our own and be independent people without other people’s help, and a lot of people go on in life without help from other people, but never be afraid to ask for it when you need it, because there are so many dangerous things that can happen to someone if they do not ask for help. So many things can happen, such as when someone lifts something heavy and does not ask for help and then that persons back starts hurting or injures ones self badly. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help, when you do not ask for it, people will automatically think, that you’re trying to be the hero, you’re trying so hard to impress people by doing everything on your own, but you’re not doing yourself any good. You are harming your body and your health by doing that. Always think before you do something because when help is there and when there are people who ask you if you want help with things, and you say no, I can do it all on my own, then the next time you do need that help, they won’t be there and they will say, I thought you can do everything on your own?

It is not a bad thing when people are trying to be helpful to you and to give you their hands, time and energy to you. In any situation whether it is at work, home, something emotional, something physical, something that you need. If you do not ask, you won’t know the answer. Also if people ask, its great to always be polite when you ask. Always say, Hello, May I please have some assistance with this? Please and thank you, you will see that the answer will be a yes most of the time, and you will see great results. Also if someone is going through a tough emotional problem, stresses that a person needs a friend or someone to talk to, that person will say May I ask for advice on what to do in this certain situation? It’s always a May I? Not can you? Not Can I? Never stop asking for help when you need it. I know it can be something that a lot of people fear, but do not fear, help is there. You just need to ask.

Some people are so proud and so high and mighty of themselves, but deep inside, they know exactly that they need that help, but they try to do everything to not feel the humiliation of asking. It’s not an easy thing, I know, but it can be. Please and Thank you are magic words. Some people do not even say thank you to someone or people who have helped them or have done so much for that person. Please and Thank you’s are important and beautiful words. It’s very important to utilize them in every aspect. So ask for help today. Don’t be afraid. No one is perfect. We all make mistakes, we all have differences, but one thing you should know, that help is not a bad thing. for anyone or anything. Give it a try to see for yourself.

Taking Everything Step By Step To The Top Of The Ladder.

In Life, I strongly believe that when we work hard and to get to where we want to be in life, we must take things step by step to get to the top of the ladder. There is no such thing as starting from the top. Learning the tricks of the trade and doing the best we can in life is what is important. Some of us may not succeed in the beginning, but never give up because you failed, keep doing it and you will see positive and really great results. Put it in your mind that you will do this, talk to yourself, and look at yourself in the mirror every morning and think to yourself, for example: Hi Good morning, My Name is Talin, I am going to do something positive and learn something new today and do the best of my ability and not leave things to do today. I will not leave things for tomorrow, because tomorrow you never know what it brings. when you have the opportunity to do something today, do not leave it for tomorrow. Prioritize your life. what is important first, then you do everything else after. Everything in life takes steps, and sometimes we need to take a few steps back in order to move forward. How will you know when you don’t try? We can’t just take the easy way out and say I give up, I can’t do this. That is not a good way to approach life, and that is a recipe of failure. Giving up and saying I can’t do it. Snap out of that phase and take a look at yourself. You can do everything and anything you want to do. Just keep going and doing something that will benefit you. Why put yourself in that predicament? Why make yourself depressed and put yourself down?

Yes things happen sometimes that are not in our control and things can happen that may prevent us from moving forward to success, but do not let those obstacles get in the way of where you want to be in life. take sometime for yourself, think about what you want to do in life, and spend some quality alone time with you and just brainstorm ideas without disturbance. make a list of things you want to do in your life, whether its traveling to your favourite places, whether its something you want to do with your home, or something for others, helping yourself, helping others. make a positive list and jot down all the ideas you have and things you want to accomplish and put it somewhere in your house where you will constantly see it and go from there. Nothing is more incredible than setting positive goals which can help us in the long run. So think about it and go with the flow.

You can do it, you just have to discipline yourself and snap out of negative thoughts. When negativity takes over, things become dull in life. Don’t do that to yourself. Get up stand up, take can control of your life and don’t give energy to things that don’t matter. That Ladder is not going to climb itself. :) So get on it! get into the groove! Love yourself and do good things for yourself. You will see the big change in your life. Just do it! All the best to you! You have my support and encouragement.

Thoughts and Prayers For The Hurricane Sandy Victims & Affected Areas

Hello Everyone,

I’d like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the Hurricane Sandy Storm going around in the east coast and other parts of the world. I hope everyone is safe and has enough survival supplies in case things get really ugly. Hope everyone stays safe, and if you do not have to go out, please do not. Stay safe in your homes and if there is a real emergency going on, call 911 or your local emergency number and notify local authorities. For now stay warm and stay safe and secure in your homes. There have been reports of sharks swimming in the New Jersey New York Areas. be careful while in the water and please be cautious. This is a community effort, so please help each other out and be a team. work together, and if there is falling leavings that are being caught around the sewer drains, please remove the leaves and any debris around it and make the flow of the water go easy because there will be localized flooding if that is not taken care of. This is a time where everyone must help each other like everyday. Thousands of flights have been cancelled due to the storms and many airports have been on shutdown and have been evacuated. If it is not important and if you do not have to be out, just do yourself a favour and be home.

For safety precautions, I think it is important that work and school be cancelled to prevent accidents, to prevent loss of life and to prevent danger.

God bless everyone and just be safe.

Sincerely,

Heading To Armenia Summer 2013!

I know that my trip to Armenia is a year away, but I have a lot of time in between to prepare my trip to Armenia. I have been to Armenia before but this time I am going for a whole month. There is this Canadian Youth Mission To Armenia which is CYMA, and they go and help out in renovations and community service for a village in Armenia, and you stay with your host family and eat, and be in their lifestyle and as well as touring Armenia. I am excited to go back to Armenia after so many years. I plan to also go for my 30th birthday in 2015 and at the same time I will be there for the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide Commemoration at the Armenian Genocide Memorial on April 24, God willing everything goes well until then, but it is good to plan from now and save save save and put money aside until it comes time to booking myself on that trip. I feel so good to go and serve my country and people and just being in Armenia is what is so incredibly awesome. You won’t know until you land on Armenia’s soil. A different feeling comes to you and you feel so blessed being on Armenia’s soil itself. I am so excited, I want to count the days, but It will just make me go crazier. Well, I have a year to prepare, with type of clothing to bring, toiletries, and among other things. I love packing for trips, and I love going away all the time. I cannot stay still.  Yay to Armenia!!! See you soon my motherland!

 

Whenever I Hit Rock Bottom, I know There is A Way Up.

Have you ever felt that when you hit rock bottom and your world world comes crashing down because of what someone said to you, or what has happened in your life? I always believe in getting back up and dusting myself off when things don’t go very pleasant and do not go well. In Life we will always encounter the times of the bad and the times of the good. There is always that balance, but it all depends on the way you look at life. If your always dwelling and looking for negativity all the time, it is not a good trait to develop. Bad things happened unfortunately and we lose people we love, and my condolences to the families and loved ones. They are with you all the time in your heart, mind, and soul. You just got to look deeper, that is all. I have had numerous amounts of bad things happening to me, and I have lived past through each one of them. I have finally put the bullying of people behind me, I have finally snapped out of that phase where I don’t have to feel terrible about myself. I realize how life is so short for me to keep on doing that to myself and upsetting myself and thinking about how the past has hurt me, and it did hurt me terribly much more emotionally and mentally, than anything else.

I realize I am not alone and I believe that I have people in this world just like me and whom I can relate to. We can all help each other in some way and get that message across. I will always remember that when I hit rock bottom, there is always a way up and get myself going again with positive and happy energy, that I need in my life. I will not let things bother me and I will not let others dictate my life and what I stand for. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I believe in a diverse world where we all come together as one body of our human world. I want to thank everyone for everything. I am so touched deeply and so grateful for having come this far, and will continue to keep my head up high and I will not let things get to me anymore. Hitting rock bottom is something I want to prevent from happening, but in life it will happen beyond our control, but I am up for the challenge to conquer it and beat it. I will not be someones puppet and I will not let others walk all over me. I can’t let that happen, and I am acting accordingly to different situations of life. I am up for the challenge. Lets do this everyone. Lets get up there and keep the rocks down where they belong. The only way up is to be confident and happy always with a dash of positivity and kick up your life with a notch of optimism.

All the best and love you all.

Never Let Anyone Bring You & What Your Passionate About Down

Today, I had a battle with someone on my Facebook friend’s list who should have never been a friend at all in the first place, who criticized me and sarcastically asked me a snide question which I really didn’t like on why I have to post about a retreat Armenian seminar I am going to this weekend 10 times? I can sense the sarcasm instantly with the tone of the way the wording was and how it was brought to my attention. Well, it is obvious and she should have common sense that not everyone sees something instantly on their news feeds on Facebook, so I need to keep promoting it because there have been times where people don’t see what I post. I mean, last time I checked it is my Facebook, and its not like I am posting anything bad. I can post what I like, and post anything that I want. I do not need anyone’s approval or permission to post what I am passionate about and what I am devoted to.

Never let others dictate your life, never let others decide what you like and don’t like. I am passionate about Taking care of my house, taking care of my family, My friends,  and I love the Highway 401 East in Ontario, Canada, Montreal, Transport Trucks, Traveling, Driving, Cooking, Cleaning, I am also passionate and dedicated to making the world a better place with no bullying, with no hate, with loving each other, with happiness, positivity, optimism, enthusiasm about life and everything that is beautiful about this world with the people in it. I will not let somebody tell me what I should and should not like, and I am not going to let another persons jealousy take over me. That girl is obviously so jealous of me and what I stand for and what my beliefs are and she is so intimidated by me. Those are types of people that are not true friends to me. I had to delete her off my friends list today. It came to that point where I drew the line, that she crossed over big time. One little snide comment can mean a bigger thing and she wanted to say in such a fashion not to offend me in anyway, but I know where she is going with that and I knew she meant it the way I know she meant it.

One thing I cannot stand is sarcastic snide remarks. I believe everyone is free to like what they like, and if people have that problem, then they should not be your friends in the first place. People should accept you for who you are, and not what you like. Today I just got so tired and had to put my foot down. She did not message me privately about it, she had to write it on my Facebook feed for everyone to see, but My good friends and my family backed me up big time, and I want to thank those individuals for helping me through this ordeal today. I deleted the whole conversation, I deleted her off my friends list. I do not need people like her burning me like that and making cruel remarks. If someone appreciates you for you and supports you in everything, that is a person to keep. I am so glad I had to do what I had to do today. It was as easy as one click, and poof gone. I said enough is enough. I had to put my foot down. I couldn’t handle it anymore. I need to review my friends list and spend a couple of days analyzing those who are worth to keep on my friends list and who are not.

I am just so tired of people bringing me down with the things I like. The things I like are not bad. Who would have thought liking a highway, traveling, cooking, cleaning, Montreal, Transport Trucks and trucking, Driving and other things I like would be so bad and people having a problem with it? I mean what in the heck is wrong with society? Yet people like bad influence shows, yet people become fans of shows that are such a disgrace to society like Glee, Jersey Shore, and all those shows that are on Television nowadays. People are passionate about that and I just don’t understand why people think they are even great things to watch? And yet the things I like get put down. I mean yes, everyone is entitled to like what they want to like, but again nobody should be bullied and nobody should receive snide remarks.

I needed to get this off my chest tonight. It really made my day gray, but my family and friends helped me get through it today and I feel better tonight. Thanks everyone.

I love you!

Talin’s Helpful Tips In The Kitchen And Organization

Hello All! Today, I am going to talk to you about tips on how to keep your kitchen organized and clean at all times. I know that is easier said than done right? I know its one of the most busiest places in your home with all the cooking, and preparing food daily, entertaining guests, and the whole thing can be a hassle. Well, I am here to help you make your kitchen hassle free, clear of mess, and efficient ways to cook, clean, and organize your kitchen in simple easy steps as well as what to refrigerate and what not to. Well, lets start shall we?

How to Organize Your Fridge:

Now, this is a huge problem in most households probably, and this took me many months to figure out what to do with my fridge and what I can do to keep it organized and visible with everything. I do not like to get so much of everything from the grocery store. I am one of those people who don’t over shop for things. I like to finish what I see in my fridge before I go out and buy again. Unless there are people coming over, or if you have a large to a small family. It depends on how much you can store in your fridge, but once something finishes, I go back to the grocery store which is not even 5 minutes away and I get out and leave. I save so much money that way and my life will be a lot easier with organization.

Here is what to refrigerate after opening. It is important to put soya sauce, any types of barbecue sauce, gourmet sauces, ketchup, peanut butter, jams, cheese whiz, jello pudding, pudding, we get from the grocery store to preserve its freshness. Never put these things in your pantry after opening. Its a no no. Although same don’t have a refrigerate after opening, but you have to so that it won’t go stale and it does if you do not put it in there.Always look at expiration dates, always clean your fridge once a week.

I like to make separate bins of fruits, vegetables, citrus fruits, keep them in separate bins, then keep the eggs in the egg carton. Don’t transfer the eggs to other places. Keep a section for your toast breads, keep a section for yogurts, milks, and other dairy products like cheese, then another section put all your jams, peanut butter and other condiments. Then in one section put other foods that you have, but always organize and create space so that it won’t overlap everything and get on top of each other. Always get a run through of what you have in your freezer and fridge and do an inventory of what you have, and whatever you don’t go to your local grocery store and stock up on the items your missing. this way you will see what you have and don’t have and so that you don’t buy too much of something that you don’t need. When things are on sale people go and jump at it like no tomorrow, it doesn’t mean you need to get a whole bunch of it, because if you do and don’t use it and it sits for months or a few weeks, it won’t be good anymore and it will go bad. Its money down the drain. even when its on special.

How to Keep your Kitchen Clean at All times — Especially when cooking and after cooking

The kitchen is one of my favorite places to be and cleanliness is number one to me. I am so picky and a clean freak. During when I cook, I am so cautious of food getting on the counter tops and cook space, so I wash my fruits and veggies thoroughly, then I like to use a nice cutting board and  I chop everything preventing any of it to get on the counter and i clean off the cutting board and put every bit of it in the dish I am cooking up. After I am done using something, I automatically wash what I am not using anymore. So in the end you won’t have mountains of dishes to wash. Its a great idea to wash everything, and then you can focus on just cooking the food after all the preparations are complete. saves a whole lot of time too. then all you need to do after, is just wash some plates and the pots and your good to go. Dish cloths, hand towels and oven mitts should be washed regularly, and folded away neatly in a drawer.

Cleaning your kitchen counters with warm water and vinegar is so important. do that at least once a week. sometimes more. depending if your dealing with meats, but its always a good idea. do not use other chemicals on your surfaces. Not good. Vinegar and water and its also good for mopping the floors.

How to Keep your Pantry Organized

Now one of the things in the pantry I cannot stand are bags. I like to take out pasta, bulgur, sugar, peanuts and other nuts and seeds, and go get containers and storage containers with first washing them before using and putting them all in different containers. I like to keep my Pantry Organized too. you put your oils, and vinegars in one spot, then you put grains in one spot, breakfast cereals, pancake mix, oatmeal, cake mixes, jello packets, and other things stored properly.

Life Is A Never Ending Learning Process, It Comes From Experience

In Life as I was growing up, and getting out of my childhood, teenage years, one of the biggest and most important, valuable things I have been taught from my family, teachers and others in my life is that it is a never ending learning process. I truly believe in that statement so much. I believe that each thing we learn in life, and each person or thing that comes into our lives, is a journey of learning. We learn about all types of people in our life, we learn about all kinds of things, and interesting as well. We learn to get through certain situations in our lives. Everything in life is an experience. The more experience we have in life, the better educated we are about it. A lot of people have the gift of always wanting to learn, always asking questions, doing research, trying new things, doing new things, changing who they associate with if they don’t end up who they say they are in the beginning. Learning and being educated, not only through school, but through real life lessons is something so incredibly important and the more we go out in society and the more we get to know different people, is so beneficial for ones self, and that will give someone a better understanding of people, people can start to be great judges of character on the spot. Some people do not know people and cannot read people very well, its because they don’t have enough people skills and interpersonal skills to know the difference between the right and wrong person and the more were out there, the better it is for us in future.

Life is full of discoveries, life is full of things that is there to learn, to try to absorb as much information in our minds as possible and that makes our minds more active, ourselves more vibrant, and when were out with people you can have so many conversations about so many things in life, you can make a random subject into such an interesting one that people will listen in and they will be educated too. The more you read, the more you know about the world, current events, and live through experiences and live to tell about it, is something so surreal and so incredible. You will be amazed to how many people will be interested. Each new day are new learning experiences and without learning, you won’t have experience. It comes hand in hand and they are very similar in defining life, and defining the true meaning behind it. All this depends on the person. Everyone is different, and has different perspectives on life and how they want to live it and how they have that certain outlook on it. It is a complicated situation, but once you engage into conversation and get different people’s point of view of things, you will see the magic and the true beauty of human life, you will see how humans interact with one another. Everyone is different and there are 7 billion people worldwide and all these people have a purpose in life and why they are here. Over half of these people want to learn, want to be educated in life.

Life is given to us and we need to experience life fully and without experience, we will never learn how beautiful life truly is. We need to sometimes get out of our own personal bubble and our own personal lives, to get out there and discover something new, and do new things instead of the same old routine were so immune to. Being center of a attention and selfish is not a way to go through life. If were always seeking attention and if were always making everyone about that certain person, that person has a lack of learning new things, a lack of thinking about other people, other peoples opinions, suggestions, and their trains of thought. We cannot always be me, myself, and I, we need to get others point of view about things and we need to include them in too. Its not a good thing to be selfish and self-centered. Not a great trait to develop. There is nothing wrong with learning, there is nothing wrong with experiencing. Be happy about it all, be positive, and optimistic, but at the same time be enthusiastic about what you want to learn and when those key elements of greatness are involved. everything else will fall into place, everything else will settle into what it is. We have to really be thankful for all the learning and education we have. It prepares us for future and no matter how old we get, the learning process and experience never stops. Just keep going and don’t stop now.

Nobody Is Perfect. Everyone Makes Mistakes

As we go through this life we have, we must accept and realize that nobody is perfect in the world, and human nature makes all kinds of mistakes. I believe that when people make mistakes, its really important to never repeat it again and learn from the first time. We make mistakes on tests, we make mistakes on choosing our better half who ends up to be the total opposite of who you had known from before, we make mistakes on our work, in our homes, in choosing friends who are really not that great to be around with and hanging out with the wrong crowds. These can all be corrected when we make the right choices in life and when we are selective and very careful about associating with types of people there are in the world. Making mistakes is part of human nature, but we must also realize to prevent from the same things to happen again.

If at first you don’t succeed, and when you make a mistake in a test, or in an assignment, the willingness to re-do and try it again is totally up to you, but I would take it. If this happens to you, go up to the teacher, professor and have a civilized conversation with him/her and explain honestly on what happened and see if you can redo an assignment and hand it in. I know sometimes some teachers give an assignment or test and you cannot redo it again, but it never hurts to ask the teacher for a re-test or something and apologize to the teacher and say, I could have done better, I could have excelled more in making the grade and apologize for it. I am certain that when your sincere and you admit that you did not study hard enough and you did many mistakes on a test and when you come clean about it and re-study for it, you mark my words, the teacher will be pleasant and he/she will accept and give you a re-test. Honesty is the best policy and the teacher or professor will appreciate you for it.

Mistakes is something that a lot of people do not admit in doing and there is really no shame in doing mistakes because everybody does it. It is hard to admit our mistakes and we try to hide it as much as we can, but it comes out no matter what happens. Do not worry about it so much, but worry about it if its been done more than once or twice. In Order to succeed, go forward and excel in life, we have to make mistakes in order to do better things in the long run and in order to progress well. If we ourselves do not make mistakes, then how will we ever know to do the right thing? I know the solution. Always analyze and think about your actions and words before you say and do them. Do your best to not make the same mistake twice and it does not hurt to ask for guidance and assistance with things. Not asking for help and making mistakes is a mistake in itself. There is no shame in it.

I know a lot of us are proud and want to do things on our own without help, without asking, without coming clean about it, but that really is not a great way to deal with it. There are many websites out there with so much information, there are people who can help us, make a phone call, send an e-mail when curiosity strikes, when you want to know how to do something, make something or get something done. There really is no shame in asking. It is a shame if you do not. Helping each other out and doing things together is very important. I know a lot of people are independent and do everything on their own and have never asked for help in anything, but one day we may need that help.

So try not to make mistakes, but make mistakes to learn and get ahead. Nobody achieves greatness without it.

 

The Children of Armenia in The Town Of Kapan – Need Your Help

Hello, I would like to talk to you about something that has hit close to my heart and close to home. A Friend of Mine who has moved to Armenia about 8 Months ago in the town of Kapan about 5 Hours away from The Capital City of Armenia, Yerevan and she is helping children in need of a better life and future ahead. It pains me to see Children suffering and not being able to have the necessities needed in life to survive. It just hits me close to home thinking about it. This little boy named Alex is one of the people that needs help to walk. His story is located on this link http://goquests.com/go/m/fundraiser/view/Help-Alex-Poghossyan-Walk . These Children need to go to Yerevan to seek treatment as transportation to Yerevan is $100 CAD Canadian and it is very costly to Parents who live in that region that only make about $250-300 a month and can barely make ends meet and as well as accommodation, food expenses, medical, hospital stays, all add up. This boy unlike others, he is in terrible condition and was sent to Yerevan by my Friend who too him to get IV Treatment in intensive care. Now if this is left untreated, he may become amputated. The Government needs to take care of their citizens more properly and give people the treatment they deserve, but unfortunately money conquers everything else and without money healthcare of an individual will not go so far and terrible things can happen and unfortunately some do not make it for another day in life.

My Friend Momo Khustup, does miracle work for these children to get the best care they need, and without generous donations, these children will have an uncertain future ahead and will be left with dealing with these debilitating diseases and disabilities. The time is now to help out. Any amount of donation will be helpful in any which way.

It doesn’t matter if it is 10, 20, 30, even 100 dollars, any amount will make a world of a difference and you can help put a smile on a child’s face that is in need. Our children are our future and we need children to get healthy and be well to be kids, to have a great childhood, to be able to have a normal life. So donate today, give a child another chance at life and make a difference. You can make a difference. Thank you….
