The  trails of the devastating earthquake of 1988 in the north of Armenia still can be felt in 2015. 27 years have passed and there remain families who do not live in a proper home or face the mental and physical impacts of the disaster till today. This natural disaster is considered to be one of the deadliest in Armenia killing an estimated 25.000 people and leaving 500.000 Armenian homeless. The main reason for having so many casualties were the poorly constructed apartments from the Soviet Era. One by one all the Soviet flats collapsed like playing card constructions limiting the chance of any survival for the inhabitants. Despite the tension of the Cold War and Armenia, as a Soviet republic, being firmly hidden behind the iron Curtain in that period of time, a so-called miracle happened. Since World War II it was the first time that the Soviet government asked for help and relief to Europe and USA. Soon help came from all over the world. One hundred and thirteen countries sent substantial amounts of humanitarian aid to the Soviet Union in the form of rescue equipment, search teams and medical supplies. One of the international humanitarian organisations that had its own stake in helping the victims of the earthquake was the Dutch organisation Pax Kinderhulp.
