Letters from Armenia

Marie – 02/15/24

This letter is from Marie, who is sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Khatchig Hamamdjian.


Dear Sponsor,


This is 12-year-old Marie. I live in the city of Metsamor, in the province of Armavir.

I have a small family comprised of me, my sister and my mom.

I go to 7th grade in school. I also go to pottery classes and have many works made of clay.

In my small family, only my mom works. She works at the sewing factory.

My hobbies include listening to violin, and I also like pop and k-pop music.

My mother’s salary is small, and she can only take care of our basic needs. Soon, the New Year will be coming and my wish for it is for us to have our own house. We are tenants. This year, we changed apartments 3 times, and each time we must move, it breaks us.  

I wish that in 2024 people stop getting mean, lying, and start being nice because we all desperately need it… Thanks for reading my letter.
