The Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) provides humanitarian relief to orphaned Armenian children and adults with disabilities throughout the world. Working with a trusted network of in-country staff and a cadre of global volunteers, SOAR provides this institutionalized population with the same educational and social opportunities as their non-institutionalized counterparts while simultaneously facilitating family empowerment, deinstitutionalization, and reunification.
The Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) Dental Clinic (Gyumri, Armenia) provides free dental services to orphaned and otherwise institutuonalized children and to the elderly in Gyumri. Since its inception, the Clinic has provided gfree dental services to hundred of children and senior citizens in Gyumri, Armenia.
The Dental Clinic was closed in Armenia because of COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic. No services have been provided since the middle of March 2020. Our hope is to reopen the clinic as soon as possible, but Armenia is still in lockdown. We anticipate reopening by September 2020.
