Dear Paros Supporters:
At this very moment tens of thousands of Armenians are trying to leave Artsakh in light of the attack and its full takeover by Azerbaijan. Almost 7,000 have arrived into Armenia already and we expect this exodus to continue. It is possible that none of the 120,000 Armenians will remain in Artsakh. While the future is still uncertain, the one thing we know for sure is that Armenia will need serious support to help permanently shelter this number of refugees from Artsakh who are fleeing to Armenia.
Following the 2020 War, our team on the ground effectively helped refugees both during and after the war with humanitarian assistance and ultimately turned our focus to rehoming families into Armenia who lost their homes in Artsakh. This helped repopulate two border communities of Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur in Tavush, and Meds Masrik in Geghargunik, and benefited the local population, economy and school. We are now launching a similar effort to quickly identify suitable communities to purchase, renovate and rehome refugees as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we are in this situation again. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help this important effort.
Peter Abajian, Executive Director
