About the ProjectThis campaign started on November 15, 2020 This campaign finished on May 15, 2021
According to the Artsakh Ombudsman's office, an estimated 40,000 people have been left without homes as a result of the 2020 Artsakh war—their homes were either captured by Azerbaijani forces or handed over to Azerbaijan under the trilateral agreement signed on November 10 between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia.
In November, there were about 2,000 displaced people living in Armenia’s Tavush Province. 70%, or about 1,400 were children. Without employment or savings, these families were unable to put food on the table. We partnered with Focus On Children Now (FCN) to secure the daily food needs of 500 of the 2,000 people in the province who needed food assistance.
For less than $1 per person per day, FCN delivered fresh, nutritious food to families temporarily living in and around the city of Ijevan (320 people) and in the village of Ayrum (180 people) in November and December 2020. Following the end of the war, many of these families have returned to their homes in Artsakh. As a result, we’re moving this nutrition program to other regions where there are displaced families who don’t have homes to go back to and still need assistance.
Between December 2020 and May 2021, 500 displaced people will continue to receive emergency food assistance through this project. More updates forthcoming!
