Glendale — The Armenia Artsakh Fund (AAF) in partnership with Direct Relief of Santa Barbara delivered $486,000 of emergency aid to Artsakh Armenians this week by an air shipment.
This valuable and timely shipment included medicines, medical supplies, emergency medical packs, emergency medical kits and several pallets of hygiene products. The shipped products will help many of the more than 100,000 Armenians of Artsakh who were forced to leave their homes in Artsakh.
Through the years, Direct Relief has donated to AAF tens of millions of dollars of life saving medicines, medical supplies and equipment for Armenia and Artsakh. In the first 10 months of this year alone, Direct Relief has donated $27 millions of much needed medicines to Armenia.
“AAF values and appreciates very much this long-standing partnership with Direct Relief,” said Harut Sassounian, President of AAF.
In the past 34 years AAF has delivered to Armenia and Artsakh a total of over $1 billion worth of humanitarian aid on board 158 airlifts and 2,568 sea containers.
