Paros Foundation Project Manager, Armen Simonyan, was recently interviewed by the Public TV of Armenia 1TV news segment about our new resettlement program for displaced families from Artsakh through our Emergency Relief & Reconstruction Artsakh Fund.

Here are the highlights…
- Our first priority for families to resettle are those who are interested in moving to Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur in the Tavush Region. We have selected this village as the first place to move five or six families because we have completed considerable work in this village including renovation of the school, kindergarten and medical center, water infrastructure improvements, and the launch of several nearby economic development opportunities. Soon our team will begin taking families to visit this community, after which, we will select the families.
- The stories we are hearing from these families are absolutely heartbreaking. Our team has interviewed and met with 30 families from Artsakh and are continuing the interview process. Once we have approved the families for resettlement we will share their stories.
- We have already identified and are in the process of purchasing homes in Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur and are beginning the renovation process soon.
