President of Bridge of Health Armenia Chapter, Anahit Barseghyan directly visits hospitals to locate children in dire need of financial help and relays their information to Bridge of Health in the U.S. where a speedy start to developing each child’s case is activated.
With the help of Robert Agaverdian, Anahit was able to find financial and emotional support for her son’s cancer of the kidneys after traveling to the U.S. from Armenia. To help provide other children facing overwhelming odds with the same opportunities her little boy was given, she founded Bridge of Health and has helped make the prayers and wishes of recovery a reality.
To spread awareness and attention in Armenia, Anahit organizes events in Armenia that work to gain support from the community and further involvement for the cause. Every year she hosts a New Years party where the kids who are being treated gather and receive the presents on their Santa’s wish list. Anahit provides a direct connection to the children whose lives Bridge of Health attempts to save, creating the strong involvement and access to quick accurate information needed to build a successful campaign for each child.
