The 1988 earthquake killed 25,000 people in Gyumri, Armenia and left more homeless with great difficulties. They continue to have need for normal living conditions today. We all must help in any way we can. The government of the city of Gyumri is initiating a drive to help. BUT, never donate blindly. We are all waiting for the Gyumri municipality to setup and promote the system of transparent accountability from an independent source the Mayor personally promised us.
A great organization that is actively helping Gyumri domik residents is Shirak Centre NGO. You can investigate them and donate (100% of your donation) via the Paros Foundation here: http://www.paros-foundation.org/projects/winter2014/index.html . Also, you can join the activist community at http://facebook.com/groups/StopCorruptionInArmenia Thank you!
