To support the Syrian-Armenians living in Karabakh, the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) has provided them with new agricultural equipment: 3 tractors (Belarus MT 3-82.1 model), seeders, disks, fertilizer distributors and pesticide sprinklers.
This project will provide a stimulus for Syrian-Armenian farmers, many of whom left their agricultural equipment in Syria, to settle in Kovsakan, Karabakh, and become productive farmers.
A parking and storage area has been acquired for the equipment. Vartan Boghos, a Syrian-Armenian immigrant now living in Karabakh with his family, will coordinate the program and oversee the usage schedule.
AGBU has invested around $120,000 USD in this program that will contribute to Kashatagh’s agricultural development and support Syrian-Armenians as they adapt to their new lives.
