Telethon 2015 Raises $10,378,465 for Artsakh Families

November 27, 2015

The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund worldwide Telethon 2015 raised $10,378,465 in pledges and donations, which will be used to construct single-family homes for families in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh) who have five children or more and lack adequate housing. There are already 466 families identified in Artsakh who fit the criteria; 211 are known to be living in unacceptable housing conditions.

According to the program, priority will be given to low-income families, as well as the families of active duty officers of the armed forces, families of veterans of the Artsakh Liberation War, and to the survivors of soldiers who lost their lives defending Artsakh.

In 2015, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund carried out multiple public-awareness and fundraising campaigns through telethons, concerts, and other fundraising events. The organization continues to accept donations and pledges toward this project.
