Our Armenian member ԵՀԽ հայաստանյան Կլոր սեղան հիմնադրամ (WCC Armenia Round Table Foundation) in cooperation with the Social Center of Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, continues humanitarian aid distribution to the displaced population throughout the Nagorno-Karabakh Region, in the frames of the Rapid Response Fund by ACT Alliance. Based on the needs assessment of the affected population, the aid boxes included non-perishable food, vegetables, and body hygiene kit. The aid distribution is being implemented in cities and small villages of the Nagorno-Karabakh Region, as well as in some other regions in Armenia. The second phase of the project will support more than 500 vulnerable families affected by the conflict.
Nagorno-Karabakh is a landlocked mountainous region subject of an unresolved dispute between Azerbaijan, in which it lies, and its ethnic Armenian majority, backed by neighbouring Armenia. Negotiations have so far failed to produce a permanent peace agreement, and the dispute remains one of post-Soviet Europe’s conflicts.
