Bourj Hammoud, Matn district

The Embroidery Center for the Armenian Relief Cross was built in 1976 during the civil war. Originally distributing food for people in need, the center got built to give women the opportunity to do meaningful work. This step was very important, as it revived and preserved the Armenian heritage. The center organizes an annual exhibition in order to finance the association’s projects, such as educational and school aid, hospital health aid through their dispensary, and even social assistance.
