Martha Mensoian is a lawyer from Boston, who together with her father Michael Mensoian, is extremely dedicated to women’s rights issues and the struggle to combat domestic violence. She is eager to help and contribute to this cause in Armenia in any way she can. Martha met with the members of the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Women which resulted in an interesting discussion and an exchange of information for planning future activities. She generously donated clothes, shoes, and personal hygiene kits to the Women’s Support Center’s domestic violence shelter.
Roubina Seropian is not only a friend of the Women’s Support Center but also an advocate for victims of domestic violence, concerned about the safety and protection of women and children who fall victim to abuse. Roubina donated much needed cleaning supplies and hygiene products to the shelter. She was also kind enough to replenish a large part of the shelter’s food supplies.
We encourage others to step forward to support victims of domestic violence who find refuge at the shelter and donate clothes, toys, food, and other items.
