We are a group of Armenian repatriates and diasporans who are committed to the wellbeing, stability and future of the homeland. At the start of the 2020 Artsakh War, we decided to use our international network in order to provide aid for the refugees of Artsakh and maximize our impact during this critical and challenging time for Armenians.
Our work is guided by the values of humanitarianism, respect, transparency, compassion, and hope. Since the start of the 2020 Artsakh War, we provide food/nutrition, warm clothing, and hygiene products for the refugee families of Artsakh. As of November 10, 2020, most of these families are refugees indefinitely. Our mission has evolved into a long-term, sustainable form of aid for these families that goes beyond basic needs. We are currently developing a sponsorship program, and working on providing educational resources, art and music workshops, and more.
We will continue our work until every single refugee family from Artsakh and the families of fallen soldiers has a secure livelihood, safe and comfortable living conditions, and access to health, education, and community resources. Beyond that, we will continue our work so that these communities not only survive, but thrive.
Through our Donation page, we collect the funds necessary for our weekly missions. The week begins by touching base with our contacts on the ground and updating the list of goods and supplies needed. After finalizing the list of families we will visit that week, we purchase what they need and prepare the packages of aid for each family. At the end of the week, we physically visit the refugee families in the villages, meet with the village representatives, and deliver the aid. We personally reach every single host family’s home to bring the aid directly to the hands of refugees from Artsakh.
Many of the refugee families are staying in Armenian villages that are close to the Artsakh border. We have been focusing our efforts on providing aid to these border towns, including the villages of Goris, Tegh, Karashen, Kornidzor, Aravus and Verishen.
