Letters from Armenia

VAHE – 6/22/2023

The Prelacy’s Orphan Sponsorship program, established in 1993, remains the centerpiece of the Prelacy’s mission in Armenia and Artsakh. We are pleased to share some of the letters that children regularly address to their sponsors.   

This week’s letter is from Vahe*, who is sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Vahe Dombalagian 

* We use only the first names of the children to protect their privacy. 


Dear Sponsor,

This is Vahe, born in the city of Hadrout in  Artsakh. I am 12 years old. During the ill-fated war our family – my sisters, mother, and I – relocated to Armenia and we are currently living in Yerevan. I got promoted to 7th grade and my sisters are university students.

Before the war, we lived in our beloved Hadrout. We owned a house there with a garden. I miss my homeland – my magnificent Hadrout – a lot, and I hope that a day will come when we will return there.

Thank you for your support.
