In light of the renewed Azeri aggression against the people of Artsakh, the Armenian Youth Federation – Western United States (AYF-WUS) has announced the re-launching of the ‘With Our Soldiers’ campaign. The new phase of the initiative will be focused on aiding the families of those who are currently defending our liberated territories and helping the inhabitants of the border regions of Artsakh and Armenia impacted by attacks from Azerbaijan.
The AYF ‘With Our Soldiers’ task force calls upon the Armenian-American community to rally around Artsakh and show the firm support of the entire Armenian nation for the right of Artsakh Armenians to live peacefully on their ancestral land. The ‘With Our Soldiers’ task force will work with the Azadamardik Committee of the Supreme Body of the ARF in Armenia to identify the best avenues of providing assistance to the people and the defenders of Artsakh. We call upon our community to join that effort by giving what you can to enable us to do our work. Donations can be made at www.withoursoldiers.com or by check payable to the Armenian Youth Federation (104 N. Belmont St., Glendale, CA 91206).
The WOS program, first initiated by the AYF in 2012, provided medical services and assistance to more than 80 veterans of the Artsakh Liberation Movement.
