The Howard Karagheusian Commemorative Corporation (HKCC) aka Karagheusian Foundation is a private charity/organization supporting local NGOs that primarily serve needy Armenian children and their families.
The Foundation was established by Miran and Zabel Karagheusian of New York in memory of their son Howard, who succumbed to the 1918 influenza pandemic at the age of 14.
The family’s vision was broader than for simple projects, they set up programs that are still live and operating today.
The Karagheusian Foundation seeks to ease suffering among children from socially and economically vulnerable Armenian communities in Lebanon and Armenia.
To empower children and their families to lead healthy and productive lives, achieve economic self-sufficiency and thrive in their communities.
