The public organization “Hanganak” was established in June, 2004
which differs from other organizations as it implements only charity
programs. According to the director of the program, gynecologist Gohar
Hovhanissian, the aim of the organization is to improve the life of
sole pensioners living in Stepanakert, including their health ane
providing them with necessary medicine. “Taking into account the fact
that pensioners in Karabakh are the most indigent class in Karabakh
and need aid, we decided with the founders to implement a social
and medical program,” said Gohar Hovhanissian. Presently “Hanganak”
provides aid to 150 pensioners living in Stepanakert. According to the
director of the program, the organization is presently going through an
important stage. The success of the program will determine whether the
organisation is accomplished. Much depends on the work of its members.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
