By order of US President Woodrow Wilson, the US military was engaged in organizing the protection of Armenian orphans during the Armenian Genocide, as well as the delivery of humanitarian aid and other vital issues.
During this period, the US government and private organizations allocated colossal funds to build orphanages for tens of thousands of Armenian orphans.
The largest of the children’s homes was located in Alexandropol (Gyumri). 5,000 children lived there.
