AYF campaign raises money for Artsakh war veterans

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenians gathered in solidarity at a Revolutionary Song Night dinner earlier this month at the Pasadena Armenian Center to fundraise for AYF’s “With Our Soldiers” Campaign. With the Central Executive declaring this year as the “Year of the Azadamardig” (freedom fighters), the event was one of many to assist veterans of the Artsakh war with necessary medical treatments.

Over 150 people were in attendance, and donations were being gathered throughout the night.

The “With Our Soldiers” committee of the AYF premiered a video it had prepared documenting the conditions the veterans live in, and the personal connections made between AYF members who traveled to Armenia this summer.
