June 1 is International Children’s Day. One year ago, on this day Orange Foundation and World Vision Armenia launched an initiative which enabled all Orange customers to participate in a philanthropic project and support those Armenian children whose families, due to financial difficulties, cannot keep their children home and are forced to deliver them to the care of state institutions. It is not widely known that 56% of the children who are under the care of state institutions are there because of financial difficulties of their parents. Today the two organizations summarized the results of the project and announced its prolongation for one more year.
