Eternal: A place for the mothers of fallen soldiers

Karine Muradyan is Vahe’s mother. Eighteen year old Vahe died while fighting the 2020 Karabakh War. To be able to share the grief, pain and sadness of this loss with other mothers who experienced such loss, Karine created “Haverj” (Eternal) – an organization through which mothers find comfort with one another. They cry together, remember together, get angry together and, at times, laugh together. There are roughly one hundred mothers in the organization and “unfortunately the number is increasing through time,” says Karine.
