Since December 12, 2022, a situation has arisen that many might not be aware of. During this time, the Lachin corridor, which serves as a connection between Armenia and Artsakh, has been obstructed by Azerbaijani protestors. The primary reason for their protest is reportedly their concern about the alleged unlawful extraction of natural resources in Artsakh. This demonstration has resulted in the disruption of regular movement of both people and goods, including essential supplies like food, fuel, and medical resources. Consequently, a scarcity of necessary products has affected the enclave's population of over 120,000 individuals. The ongoing blockage of the corridor and the resulting famine for this substantial population has also hindered efforts to provide housing and construct new accommodations for students hailing from Artsakh. Over the last three months, we've managed to gather approximately $300 in donations. With these funds, we made the decision to purchase three bedside tables. We remain optimistic about receiving further contributions in the coming times, which will allow us to undertake more dormitory renovations. As a result, we can accommodate an increased number of students.
We are delighted to share with you that we have received donations amounting to 1.040,81$ in the last three months, all thanks to our generous donors. We are also happy to inform you that we have used our own funds to renovate a bathroom in one of our rooms, and with the donations we received, we were able to furnish it. We have attached photos below to show you the fully equipped bathroom, which is now ready to accommodate our students.
As stated in our earlier reports, we remain committed to our mission as long as the problem persists. We firmly believe that knowledge is crucial for a stronger future, and we are determined to provide knowledge and enhance the learning experience for all.
We extend our gratitude once again to our donors who continue to support us and give us hope that this project can become a reality.
Although Artsakh still faces problems and students that are affected by war still need our help, it is with a heavy heart that we have to report that during the last three months our project did not succeed in getting any donations. We still hope that this project will come to its conclusion and with the help of our donors, we will be able to host and make this a safe place for the students who can find their second home at Shirakatsy Lyceum.
Our country is still in crisis and as long as this problem is actual, we have to find a way to support the kids from Artsakh as much as possible.
The previous three months brought 140$ the fundraising amount for the "Support with Housing of Students Affected by War" project. As the money was not enough for any sort of renovation, we decided to buy some table games for the students affected by Artsakh war currently studying and living at Shirakatsy Lyceum. With these table games and chess, the students can spend their leisure time and cozy evenings in our dorm lobby. The table games were not many but we hope to raise more funds in order to buy not only fun games but make this place their second home. We believe that we will reach our goal.
During these past three months, our project managed to raise 130 USD for the support of the students affected by the Artsakh war. The amount was not big enough in order to renovate another room and house more students at the Shirakatsy Lyceum. In one of the renovated rooms, we already welcomed three students who were in need of a wardrobe. So, with the new donations, we managed to buy one more wardrobe for them. We do hope to raise the whole needed money so that we will be able to renovate and furnish another room and make the dorms of the Shirakasty Lyceum a second home for more students.
