Tens of thousands of Armenians from Artsakh have been driven from their homes and have arrived in Armenia, while others are trying to leave. This dark chapter of our nation’s history has created a humanitarian crisis. While short-term needs are being addressed, Armenia will need serious support to help permanently shelter this number of people from Artsakh.
Our Artsakh Refugee Support Fund was launched with an initial generous donation from Paros supporters, Dr. & Mrs. Gary & Linda Assarian. Funds will be used for both immediate humanitarian needs for refugees and for permanent housing opportunities. Unfortunately, we are in this situation again. Both Armenia and our brothers and sisters from Artsakh need us. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help support this important effort.
