For three elderly women, an Armenian charity has become a safe haven, helping them find joy and music to overcome their loneliness, if only for a few hours a day.

Anichka, Emma and Gayane depend on the Mission to Armenia, going every day to eat and visit. For these women, as well as scores of other vulnerable senior citizens, the charity is a safe place to gather, make friends and play music. The music they create together helps them forget their troubles and find moments of joy in their difficult lives.
