YEREVAN—The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund continues to send urgent medical assistance to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh). Following the April war, the fund has provided the republic’s health ministry with 2 ambulances, which were donated by the French-Armenian community; as well as 13 tons of medicines and medical supplies, made possible through the joint efforts of the Armenian communities of France and Brazil.
In addition, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund raised more than $1.1 million during its “Help Artsakh!” emergency telethon, which aired in Los Angeles. The proceeds—raised through the donations of Armenians in not only Los Angeles but also Toronto, New York, France, and Brazil—will be used to rebuild Artsakh communities that sustained extensive damage during the war.
Most recently, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund provided Artsakh’s Health Ministry with various types of medical equipment. They include 2 hemodialysis machines, donated by the French-Armenian community; an ultrasound machine, donated by British Armenians; and a pulse oxymeter as well as 50 medical stands and 20 portable stretchers, donated by the Greek-Armenian community.
The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund is a non-profit organization established on March 3, 1992, with the aim of facilitating humanitarian assistance and infrastructure development in Armenia and Artsakh. The Fund has 25 affiliates worldwide.
