HUMANITARIAN AID PROJECTS
Almost half of Aurora for Artsakh’s projects are dedicated to providing people in need with appropriate clothing, heaters, shelter, bedding, food, agricultural goods, kits with essentials, hygiene product packs and supplies, gas canisters and furniture.
The program has also delivered laptops to children with hearing impairments, gave displaced children access to theatre performances and entertainment, organised transport and ensured psychological assistance and physical rehabilitation for those who required it, and sent Christmas presents to the children of Artsakh.
CHRISTMAS MIRACLE FOR ARTSAKH
More than 500 people from different countries, as well as 12 corporate companies became Secret Santas for the children of Artsakh. With the funds raised, we purchased gifts for these children who did not get their Santas, as well as about 3000 gift sets for children who simply could not and did not have a chance to send us a letter.
Healthcare projects cover the involvement of medical professionals from Armenia and abroad in medical institutions in Artsakh. It also covers: the procurement of tools and materials for lower limb prosthetics, provision of orthopaedic items to wounded soldiers, provision of vital medication to elderly people, new ambulances for Artsakh, psychological support to servicemen and their families, equipment for the transfer of wounded soldiers with mobility issues, the development of a mobile clinic to provide healthcare services to the wounded, the rehabilitation of children and adults in Artsakh, organising at-home medical services for the wounded with limited mobility in hard-to-reach regions of Artsakh and Armenia, and an acupuncture training program for medical professionals in Artsakh for pain relief and mental health care in war and post-war context, amongst other things.
