The Delaware County Habitat for Humanity will have a visitor from Armenia, who will make a free presentation on May 1.
“We wanted to invite the public just in case anyone wanted to learn more,” executive director Todd Miller told The Gazette. “There’s going to be two videos.”
Habitat Armenia development director Seda Arzumanyan is visiting the United States over the next couple weeks to visit Habitat affiliates to thank them for their support, and what the organization is doing in a nation that was once part of the Soviet Union. She will show two short videos about housing issues in Armenia.
“Over the last four years, we’ve tithed almost $10,000 to Armenia,” Miller said. “According to them, we’ve served 7 families in Armenia.”
Miller said that every time Delaware Habitat builds and sells a home, they tithe $4,500 to Habitat for Humanity International, Miller said.
“Usually, we send $2,000 to Habitat’s Global Mission Fund (which can go to any country) and then we pick two countries to personally tithe to. We’ve directed money to Armenia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Madagascar.”
The 30-minute presentation will be at 6 p.m. May 1 at the Andrews House, 39 W. Winter St.
