Hayastan All-Armenian Fund is building a community center in Mets Shen, a village in Nagorno-Karabakh Shushi region. The 195-square-meter, two story structure will house the mayor’s house, a medical clinic, a library and an events hall.

Sponsored by the Armenian community of Lebanon, donors from Armenia and Artsakh

One of the Shushi Region’s oldest settlements, Mets Shen has a population of 119, most of whom are seniors. The main occupations are bee-keeping, agriculture, and cattle-breeding. The village is renowned for the 17th-century Saint Panteleon Monastery, named in honor of a local physician for his life-saving work. The monastery also hosts a nice collection of items which tell a lot about the history of the village.
