Posts Tagged ‘Armenia Fund’

In one of my previous posts I wrote about the 11th annual Telethon organized by the Armenia Fund. The results this year? $35 million! Which is more then twice as much as the Fund raised in 2007! That’s pretty impressive, especially taking into account the global financial crisis.

To compare this with previous years results, and to outline the major projects that the raised funds were spent on I drew a quick table.

As we can see the amount of funds has been increasing from year to year. Each year the Board of Trustees of the Fund meets to discuss the projects that the following year’s donations will be spend on. Most of the funds so far have been used to improve the rural infrastructures in Armenia and Artsakh.

Hi, because I promised to update you on anything that goes on in the lives of young Armenians, I’ve decided to write about the 11th Telethon of the Armenia Fund, that is taking place right now. Armenians from all over the world are watching the Telethon and making their donations, which will go to building the infrastructures in Nagorno-Karabakh.

I am watching the Telethon on the National Armenian Channel (H1) that right now is featuring a reporting on the young Armenians from Spitak, Gyumri and Vanadzor, who were born in 1988, when the devastating Earthuqake happened. “This folks do not remember the earthquake itself, but the do remember living in temporary houses and not having decent living conditions…” This is what the reporting is saying. That’s so true and so sad. It will take generations to get over it.

I’ts 12:20 in Yerevan, more then $ 9 million has been donated so far. I am so hoping this funds will be directed to improving the living of those who suffered so much..
