Dear community and friends,
As you all know at this point, Armenia witnessed another escalation in tensions at her border in July. Once again, our soldiers brilliantly controlled the situation, a proud feat followed by the support of Armenians from all over the world. Thankfully, no civilians were killed during the direct disregard for a ceasefire, and our villagers in Tavush, just like our soldiers, are standing strong on our lands. Despite all this, the crucial need for a systematic solution for keeping our villagers safe in such crises has become ever more apparent. We don’t have any illusions about our neighbors’ intentions, and our population’s safety is paramount.

A group of repatriates (George Tabakian, Vartan Marashlyan and Hratch Jaghatspanian) has launched the #SahmanStrong campaign in support of high-quality bunker construction in the region. The aim of the campaign is to gather the funds ($15,000) for this demanding project, setting up a bunker within the border, in coordination with Tavush Marzpetaran (Regional Administration) and Pahapan Foundation. Kicking off the campaign will be a live event right from the border, within one of the previously constructed bunkers, on August 3 at 6 PM (GMT+4).

We call all on our friends and supporters to become a part of this initiative, as YOUR input can save lives; your support WILL make a difference, with 100% of the funds received redirected to the construction of proper and high-quality bunkers. Donate for the protection of our compatriots. Donate for #SahmanStrong!
