On September 27, our compatriots in Artsakh awoke to a new reality. An aggression unlike one experienced in recent history. And what endured for the next two months will be remembered as one of the true tests of the Armenian spirit and resilience.

Over 90,000 civilians have fled to Armenia for safety as a result of the Azeri attacks on Artsakh. Shaken and anxious, they are physically, emotionally and economically exhausted yearning for the life they left behind. While we are working to develop a long-term strategically sustainable plan to assist the nation and its people, AGBU has moved swiftly and urgently to provide emergency assistance for tens of thousands of individuals in need.

AGBU remains committed to the people of Artsakh and Armenia. We are here and ready as ever.

Help uprooted families from Artsakh survive trauma and loss

AGBU has stepped up its humanitarian assistance to provide food and basic essentials to families struggling to keep up their strength as they face an uncertain future. Our work to date includes:

  • Providing food and basic needs to 30,000+ displaced individuals
  • Clothing and toy distribution for families
  • Partnering with World Food Programme to provide Healthcare Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and COVID-care supplies
  • Securing much needed medical equipment including ventilators, generators, anesthesia machines and defibrillators
