Nappies For Nork Raffle and Fundraiser

Nappies%20for%20Nork%20Raffle%20WBanner%202015 Nork orphanage is in dire need of disposable diapers and while it should be the responsibility of the Armenian government to supply those basic necessities, we all know the reality and economic constraints.

Let’s do a little quick math. In the US, you can purchase a brand-name diaper for between 15 and 30 cents each. In Armenia, they are a bit more expensive, so for ease of calculating, let’s say it’s 25 to 50 cents, depending on the size and brand. That means that for $1.50 to $3.00 a child at Nork can be clean and comfortable for an entire day. For around $70 a child has diapers for an entire month. Approximately $135 will keep every child at Nork in fresh diapers for a 24 hour period.

SOAR has already set up a diaper fund and you can make a tax deductible donation here: If you make a contribution in any amount between now and Easter Sunday and let me know at, you will be entered into a drawing for these and other items:
