This extremely valuable shipment, donated by AmeriCares, included penicillin, anti-infective, anti-diabetic, cardiovascular, psychotherapeutic, dermatological, ophthalmic, analgesic, and gastrointestinal medicines and medical supplies.

“Through the years AmeriCares has donated tens of millions of dollars of life-saving medicines, medical supplies and equipment to Armenia and Artsakh. We value and appreciate very much this long-standing partnership with AmeriCares,” said Harut Sassounian, President of the United Armenian Fund.

    UAF’s collective efforts from its inception and it largest donor by far was K. Kerkorian and his foundation, which might still be true regarding the operations of UAF even today. I think it would be nice to mention this important fact among the not so important contributors to the collective effort mentioned int the article. Give credit where credit is due not what might seem politically correct.
