The AYF San Fernando Valley Sardarabad Chapter with the help of the Homenetmen Massis Chapter hosted a Soccer Tournament on November 17th and 18th. Despite the pouring rain and slippery mud over 40 people participated in this tournament. Dozens of people of all ages came to support the AYF Sardarabad Chapter in their efforts in raising funds for the With Our Soldiers Campaign.
The organizers of this event explained to all what the Campaign was for and how it helped with the medical needs of the Veterans that served Artsakh two decades ago.
Today the government of Armenia is not doing a good job in giving the Veterans treatment for the injuries that they have incurred during the time that they served to liberate Artsakh. This campaign helps the future of Armenia just as much as it does to the Veterans receiving he treatment today. By giving treatment and looking after the Veterans of today, the young men would be more inclined to serve their homeland if there was ever a situation where it was necessary.
Soldiers of our nation need to know that every Armenian in the world cares. They have to understand that the diaspora and the government of Armenia will help them with whatever they can when they return back home from battle. Knowing that treatment would be free and that there would be other social programs to help support a wounded soldier returning back home is a great step to help the Armenian people.
With constant threats of war made by Azerbaijan, with cases such as Ramil Safarov, all Armenians around the world need to show support in whatever way that they can. The With Our Soldiers Campaign is a great way for doing this.
The With Our Soldiers Campaign has been an ongoing Campaign raising money and awareness about the current state of Artsakh War Veterans. The money raised by events such as this one will fund the medical treatment for the War Veterans who risked their lives fighting for the liberation of Artsakh.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming days on the With Our Soldiers Campaign.
