United Armenian Fund Makes their safe arrival and distribution possible for Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh

NEW YORK, New York – Armenia Fund USA is pleased to announce the generous donation of medicines valued at $569,000 for medical centers and healthcare providers in the Republic of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. The humanitarian aid provided by Operation Blessing International of Virginia Beach, VA includes much-needed, high quality medicines- including antibiotics- which are often unavailable and cost-prohibitive to obtain. Founded in 1978, Operation Blessing International is a non-profit relief and development organization dedicated to bringing hope to millions through hunger relief, medical care, outreach programs, and disaster relief.

Armenia Fund USA’s partnership with Operation Blessing International spreads a powerful message of caring and humanitarian relief and make it possible to reach those in need.

Additionally, Armenia Fund USA is indebted to United Armenian Fund (UAF). For the third time in recent months, UAF made it possible to ship free of charge items critically needed for the well-being and survival of the Armenian people in the homelands. This time the shipment, which weighs more than 6,000 pounds, is destined for polyclinics and medical centers throughout Armenia and Karabakh. United Armenian Fund, through its humanitarian services and strong relationship with respective government authorities, was vital to securing both the clearance of the medications by the Ministries of Health of both Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh and, ultimately, their transport from Operation Blessing International’s warehouses in Virginia to Yerevan, Armenia through UAF’s 137th humanitarian airlift scheduled to arrive in mid-March.

The Ministries of Health of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh have each expressed their appreciation to Armenia Fund USA, Operation Blessing International and the United Armenian Fund for making this humanitarian relief available. A great support to the region striving to improve their healthcare systems, the medications will be available to medical facilities like Armenia Fund USA’s newly-constructed Armine Pagoumian Polyclinic and Diagnostic Center in Stepanakert, Nagorno-Karabakh. Located in the region’s capital and replacing the previous Soviet-era clinic that was seriously damaged during the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, it is the first and only full care outpatient medical center in Nagorno-Karabakh.
