In April 2016, eight-year-old Nelly’s family fled their village when heavy fighting broke out between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the Southeast of the country. Nelly’s family found shelter in one of Armenia’s remote communities, which also happens to be supported by our child sponsors in the UK – Stepanavan, located in the northern part of the country. In Stepanavan, the mayor helped to find the family a small house to live in, and our office provided the family with a cow, as well as the necessary bedding for the new house, and helped to register them in the local schools. Today Nelly and her four siblings are all sponsored children.

The result is a tasty tortilla packed full of nutrition.
