GLENDALE–A new non-profit organization, Armenia Artsakh Fund (AAF), was established on December 1, 2015, in Glendale, California, to deliver large-scale humanitarian aid to the population of Armenia and Artsakh (Karabakh).

Given the widespread poverty and unemployment in the two Armenian Republics, AAF’s mission is to continue the laudable humanitarian efforts of the United Armenian Fund (UAF) which delivered $720 million of relief supplies to the homeland in the past 26 years. AAF is led by Harut Sassounian as president, and Nouritza Abujamra as Program Director who had held similar positions at the UAF which terminated its operations on November 30, 2015.

AAF’s Board of Directors consists of Vitali Grigoryants, Harut Sassounian, Stepan Martirosyan, Arsen Mikayelyan, and Nouritza Abujamra.

Grigoriants, a prominent businessman, is AAF’s chairman of the board, and its prime benefactor. He will provide the necessary financial resources to AAF to ensure that hospitals, clinics, schools, orphanages, and other charitable organizations in Armenia and Artsakh receive each year millions of dollars of humanitarian assistance, consisting of life-saving medicines, vaccines, medical equipment, infant formula, farming supplies, computers, winter clothing, shoes, toys, books, and many other goods.

The AAF is located at 1101 N. Pacific Ave., #204, Glendale, CA 91202. Phone number: 818-241-8900; and fax: 818-241-6900.
