The funds were allocated to measures taken to overcome the Pandemic and financing the return of Armenian citizens from Russia.
Launched on March 18th, the global Armenian fundraising campaign “Covid-19 Armenia: United Against the Pandemic” is undertaken with the support of President of the Republic of Armenia, the President of the Republic of Artsakh, the Office of the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs and the Ministries of Health and Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia. To streamline the process all financial support from the Diaspora will be coordinated by the “Hayastan” All-Armenian Fund.
As of today, $ 770,000 has been raised, of which approximately $ 600,000 has already been used to purchase large-scale medical supplies and equipment, to provide financial assistance to the staff of the Armenian Ambulance Services, to deliver monthly food packages to the vulnerable elderly citizens and to bring back to Armenia many compatriots.
The Fund has also received large-scale in-kind contributions of medical goods from various countries, which were provided to the Ministry of Health. During the fundraising campaign, the global Armenian network continues to expand, and new collaborations are being established with various organizations both in Armenia and the Diaspora.
