Los Angeles, November 14, 2021 – Armenia Fund Telethon Raises Vital Support for Homeland Recovery, Reports on the Implementation of Recent Projects
Armenia Fund’s 24th annual International Thanksgiving Day Telethon mobilized the worldwide Armenian community, calling for the continued support of the ongoing recovery of the homeland while reporting on projects and programs that were implemented in the course of the past 12 months.
Carrying the theme “Empowering the Homeland’s Remote Communities,” the Telethon raised support for providing assistance to dozens of communities in Armenia and Artsakh impacted by the 44-day War, including close to 100,000 displaced persons. The four-hour Telethon was held on November 25 in Los Angeles, featuring appearances by community leaders and representatives of schools and organizations, as well as short documentaries on completed projects, the ongoing humanitarian needs of the homeland, and initiatives designed to address them.
By the conclusion of the Telethon, $12,351,000 was raised in support of the homeland. This sum represents the total amount that was raised internationally during 2021, in the US, France, Canada, and other Armenian communities around the world.
