The “Artsakh Outreach Project” of the Armenian Church Continue to Support People in Need

Diocese of the Armenian Church of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland – 20/2/21

The Artsakh Outreach project, implemented by the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and its dioceses, has to continue with the continuous fundraising efforts by Armenians worldwide.

The aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) and Armenia, launched by Azerbaijan, Turkey and international terrorist forces since September 27, 2020, that lasted for 44 days, resulted in the displacement of around 100.000 Armenians from Artsakh who found shelters in various regions of Armenia-proper. A significant share of these families has returned to Artsakh by now. However, both in Armenia and Artsakh there are hundreds of families with acute social and humanitarian needs. Official statistics list more than 35.000 people who lost their homes, and the families of slain and wounded heroes of war experience a long list of psychological and social issues.
