103-year-old Armenian woman dones $1million to Hayastan Fund

A 103-year-old woman, Knarik Margossian, has donated $1 million to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund (Armenia Fund) to support the charity's humanitarian efforts in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Margossian is a resident of Burbank, California, and is thus joining thousands of her compatriotes around the world to make donations for the cause.

In a letter, Hayastan Fund thanked the woman for her generosity, according to a picture posted on the Facebook page of the Armenian community of Lebanon.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
