France will continue its support for Armenia and the Armenian people following the November 30th vote in Parliament, providing €15 million in emergency aid for Armenia and refugees from Nagorno-Karabakh, the French Foreign Ministry informs.
This additional aid will help support the efforts by NGOs, the ICRC, the Armenian Red Cross and UN agencies to welcome and look after the social, medical, educational and financial needs of these particularly vulnerable populations.
“This latest aid package brings our 2023 contribution to €27.5 million. Emergency medical supplies were also turned over to the Armenian authorities, and French hospitals are caring for several burn patients. This support is accompanied by fundraising efforts by civil society organizations and local governments to help the Armenian people,” the Foreign Ministry said.
