Starting from 2007, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has been implementing large-scale projects in Hadrout region of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, Public Relations Department of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund informs.
Tenders have been announced for construction of the Togh-Hadrout gas pipeline, the Mets Taghlar-Azokh-Drakhtik water pipeline and the Hakaku village school. Reconstruction of the Togh village school and the Hadrout regional hospital are in a tender preparation stage.
The repair of the Hadrout potable water supply system is well underway. From the Archi spring catchments a 21.8 km pipeline will deliver potable water to the city of Hadrout. The city wells and the daily water distribution reservoir will also be repaired. Also, the Ishkhanaket river water will be treated and filtered in settler to insure gravity flow water distribution to villages of Mets Taghlar, Azokh and Drakhtik. Thus, more than 2700 people from three villages will have regular water supply.
Gas supply in the region will start with the construction of the Togh-Hadrout gas pipeline. The about 21 km pipeline will supply gas to villages of Jrakous, Hosher, Aknaghbyur, Kyuratagh, Ukhtadzor, Tsaghkavank, Pletonts, Melikashen and Aygestan, and will later connect these villages to the main gas network in the republic.
On funds raised during the 2006 telethon and on donations from the Fund's US-western region affiliate a school will be constructed for the Hakaku village. 2006 telethon donations will be spent for construction and heating of the Togh village school. Its furnishing will be supported by the Fund's Argentina affiliate.
The Hadrout regional hospital project is of utmost importance when it comes to healthcare in the region. The run-down hospital building will be renovated, the hospital's drinking and sewage pipelines, the roof and the electric wiring will be repaired, a heating system will be installed.
Project C.U.R.E, in coordination with the US western region affiliate of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund will donate medical equipment to the Hadrout regional hospital, which will be great support for the only regional hospital that currently is in a deplorable state.
The Fund's US western region affiliate has already donated three ambulances to the hospital. There used to be one ambulance attending to 12 thousand people living in the region. Another ambulance was donated to the Togh village health care center by the Argentina affiliate of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund.
