During online discussion, Executive Director of Hayastan All-Armenian Fund Haykak Arshamyan said the Fund has raised over $195,000 to support the Lebanese-Armenians who were affected by the explosion that took place at the port in Beirut.

“Just days after the explosion, the Fund opened a bank account and has already raised over $195,000. Various banks and businesses in Armenia supported the Fund and transferred funds to the Fund’s bank account,” Arshamyan said.

The executive director of the foundation noted that discussions are underway to clarify the needs of the Armenian community in Lebanon. 

“Maybe we will try to direct our money to the educational sphere, but we will come to a final conclusion in a few days,” said Haykak Arshamyan.
