The Boghossian Foundation increases its aid to the refugees from Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) with an auction powered by Artsy.
The Boghossian Foundation presents the online Benefit Auction for Armenia, powered by Artsy. The auction will feature around 20 lots, including works by Etel Adnan, Peter Halley, Robert Longo, Gérard Schneider, and Chico da Silva, amongst others.
In the wake of the tragedy taking place in Armenia with more than 100,000 displaced people from Artsakh (also known as Nagorno-Karabakh), the Boghossian Foundation has considerably increased its contribution, efforts and aid to the country. By meeting the most urgent needs to the particularly vulnerable Armenian refugees, we aim to ensure that they can find shelter and survive.
The proceeds of the auction will go to the AGBU Global Relief Fund which enables AGBU (Armenian General Benevolent Union) to help refugees find food, housing and work, so that they can start a new life.
The proceeds of the auction will go to the AGBU Global Relief Fund which
enables AGBU (Armenian General Benevolent Union) to offer various aid programs to tens of thousands of displaced Armenians from Artsakh restarting their
lives in Armenia, including medical and mental health services, job trainings and
placements, weekend and summer camps with trauma counselling, distribution
of basic supplies such as heaters, and readiness to address the changing needs
of the population.

donors for their generous donation and support.
