An unspeakable human tragedy is unfolding in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh) with the mass evacuation of Armenians from their homes and homeland. Over the last 20+ years, the Armenian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) has been supporting the Hanganak Elder Clinic in Stepanakert, Artsakh, most recently providing 300+ elders who are alone with medical, food, fuel and social support. The Artsakh population, including our elders, are now forced to leave their homes and homeland with only the clothes on their back under difficult conditions. Rest assured, we are working with other organizations here and abroad to find ways to help our elders and others who are now displaced. We will provide updates on this website to keep you informed and continue to do whatever we can to assist those in need.
This is a moment for all people to pull together, to stand in the face of hatred and violence here and overseas, and to demonstrate the compassion and charity that occupy such an important place in our proud heritage.
