"Let's overcome the epidemic together" initiative was launched by “Pan-Armenian Youth Union” (AYU) educational and cultural youth NGO, co-financed by WCC Armenia Round Table Charity Foundation and the Pan-Armenian Church Youth Organization.
Within the framework of the project, citizens are provided with multi-layer, reusable breathing masks in individual packaging and appropriate to medical standards. Today, people need more spiritual and psychological support, but with a closed face it is impossible to express any emotion, so the volunteers of the Pan-Armenian Youth Union initiated to delineate drawing of the Mother Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin on the masks as a symbol of hope and optimism. The Holy Cross of the central dome of the Mother Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin was recently consecrated by the Catholicos of All Armenians. That's why this year is probably marked for Armenian Christians as the year of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin.
The project launched in the Holy Martyrs Church of the administrative district of Davtashen with the meeting of Archimandrite Tovma Khachatryan, the Dean of the Pan Armenian Church Youth Organization (ACYO) and director of the central office, Mikael Tumasyan, mayor of Davtashen district, and the volunteers of the Pan-Armenian Youth Union (AYU).
Accompanied with the social department staff of the district administration and volunteers of the Holy Martyrs Church, Father Tovma and the volunteers of the Pan-Armenian Youth Union started the distribution of the masks to the socially vulnerable residents of Davtashen.
Within the framework of the initiative it is planned to distribute 3.000 masks.
