Taipei, Oct. 14 (CNA) Aid from Taiwan is helping to change the lives
of children living in the poorest region of the Central Asian country

World Vision Taiwan set up a project known as an Area Development
Program (ADP) in the town of Aparan earlier this year, with the goal
of improving the standard of living of poor children in the area. The
town lies in Aragatsotn, an impoverished province in western Armenia.

~SThe province lacks basic water and sewage amenities, with broken and
muddy roads, ” said Shi-jing Chen, a priest who had been to Aragatsotn
to see the problems faced by local children.

“The children there face difficult lives~Ethey are in need of foreign
aid,” he said.

After visiting new classrooms and kindergartens sponsored by the World
Vision Taiwan, he could see the importance of such donations, he said.

Shu-zhen Yen, director of World Vision Taiwan’s Central Area office,
said that while Taiwan was once itself a receiver of international aid
from World Vision, today it is helping to change the lives of those
in poor countries such as Armenia, where just a small donation can
make a big difference for those children in need, even making their
dreams come true.
