Why we are doing this
On Sept 27th, while the world was trying to deal with their own problems, Azerbaijan launched a planned large-scale attack on Armenian republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Backed by Turkish military support, including foreign terrorists, and violating international conventions and ceasefire, they are targeting schools, hospitals, churches, journalists and the civilian population in flagrant violation of human rights, in the overt desire for the ethnic cleansing of Armenians from their ancestral homeland. Armenians in Artsakh and Armenia, vastly outnumbered by the aggressors, are fighting today on their own for their right to live in their indigenous lands and exist as a nation. The world is silent.
In response to Armenia’s current situation, Plexus Gallery and artist Joanna Kambourian have initiated this fundraiser to send money to Insurance Foundation for Servicemen, aiming to help families of soldiers who died during this war.
