We've Reached Our Goal!

BENEFITING: TUFENKIAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
The citizens of Artsakh suffered through a tense and violent period two weeks ago, as Azerbaijan launched unprovoked assaults along the NKR's eastern front. While order is now being restored, this disruption has created many needs which Armenians worldwide are now addressing.
We appreciate the efforts undertaken by Armenians from every corner: Whether writing checks, offering professional assistance, or volunteering themselves, our people once again have shown admirable solidarity in times of trial.
Tufenkian Foundation has been on the ground for over a decade, serving Karabakh residents through the promotion of resettlement, infrastructure, health care, and other development programs. In recent days, we've thought hard about how we might assist this effort in a meaningful way and direct our assistance toward pressing, unmet needs in ways that utilize our skills, capabilities, and presence on the ground.
With these goals in mind, we are launching an appeal for funds for the next 15 days, addressing three primary areas:
1. Emergency medical supplies: We’ve identified medicines and wound care products (such as Celox) in short supply that are badly needed by our armed forces, should they face a similar situation again.
2. Housing construction/repair: Offering assistance in repairing and refurbishing houses in the affected areas.
3. Media response: Facilitating the work of journalists (known quantities, effective actors) who can provide media reports that are fair, balanced, and impactful.
You can also make your donation by mailing a check, payable to the Tufenkian Foundation, to:
