Global Activism: Armenian Relief Mission

It's Thursday, and time for our Global Activism series where we hear from individuals who are trying to make the world a better place.


Armenia is a poor Christian nation bordering Turkey to the west and Georgia to the north.  It was annexed by the Soviet Union in the 1920s and regained its independence in 1991. An earthquake in the late 1980s devastated the nation, and it still hasn't quite recovered.


Steve and Rozik Kashian are a husband and wife team from the North Shore who run the medical and social outreach charity, the Armenian Relief Mission. Steve told us how they got involved.
