Artsakh Refugees in Vayots Dzor


On the morning of September 27th, Azerbaijan, with a population of 9 million people launched an attack on the small Christian Armenian civilian population of only 150,000 people who have lived in territory of Artsakh for thousands of years. More than 800 Armenians have been killed and more than 110,000 civilians have been displaced. Internationally banned cluster-bombs are being used against the civilian population in Artsakh. Schools, churches, hospitals and more than 2700 residential structures have been damaged and destroyed by continuing shelling of these civilian targets. Azerbaijan’s oil-rich corrupt dictator, Ilham Aliyev, has said he will not stop the attack until there are no Armenians left in Artsakh.

Funds raised through this project will be allocated 100% to assist with the massive immediate humanitarian needs of people from Artsakh who have left and taken shelter in the Vayots Dzor region of Armenia.

Funding has also been used to support the children from Artsakh attending the Yegheknadzor Kindergarten by offsetting their tuition. The kindergarten has also hired several new employees who were displaced from Artsakh whose salaries we are helping fund.
