HAYRENIK MIYUTYUN (Friends of Armenia)

Our Mission

Hayrenik Miyutyun (aka Friends of Armenia) is a 501-c3 Non Profit Humanitarian Organization. It was formed in September 1992 with the purpose of providing resources to the people of Armenia and Artsakh. This organization was inspired by Sarkis Hatspanian and founded with the vision of Varujan Karian. 

Over the past 22 years FOA has built, renovated and furnished schools, hospitals, camps, community centers, water systems and homes. FOA shipments to Armenia have included vehicles, computers, heaters, books, medical supplies and technical equipment to institutions, as well as clothing and food to the people. 

Over 70 containers of goods have been sent to date. The total value of all projects and supplies amounts to over $4 million dollars.

FOA is proud to have been able to fulfill its obligations and is grateful for all the support it has received. We hope that in the years to come our help will become unnecessary.


You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
