About the CampaignThis campaign started on November 16, 2020 This campaign finished on March 31, 2021
The Insurance Foundation for Servicemen, also known as 1000+, was created to alleviate the economic hardship many families face when a soldier is injured or killed in combat. They do this by providing monetary compensation to soldiers who sustain injuries while in combat and now live with disability, or to eligible family members of soldiers either killed in combat or declared missing.
Using in-kind donations and 1,000 AMD donated every month from the income salaries of every registered worker in Armenia (hence the nickname 1000+), the foundation supports military families who have suffered losses first with an upfront lump sum, then with monthly disbursements for 20 years.
The final number of killed, missing and disabled soldiers is still being determined following the 2020 Artsakh war. Officially 2,966 soldiers were killed in the war, and there are an estimated 8,000 injured soldiers according to unofficial data. Given the sharp increase of military families now in need of support, we decided together with ArmeniaFund and HayastanAllArmeniaFund to have our first transfer of $932,892 sent to ArmeniaFund to be donated to 1000+.
The life of every Armenian soldier is invaluable, but funds provided by 1000+ help alleviate the economic challenges many military families face.
