Dear Project of the Month Club Member,
During the 2020 war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, tens of thousands of Armenians were displaced. About 40,000 refugees, including women, children, and the elderly, lost their homes as a result of bombings. And thousands of soldiers—mostly young people—were injured in the conflict.
Our October Project of the Month, Voluntary Service of Armenia - Republican Headquarters of Student Brigades, provides refugees with essential services and supports soldiers wounded in the conflict as they receive treatment in rehabilitation centers. Their project Help wounded soldiers and refugees (Karabakh war) connects professional psychologists and volunteers who provide specialized support to wounded soldiers and refugees. The project aims to help these individuals overcome stress, adapt, and socialize so they can return to a more normal life.
To learn more about how Voluntary Service of Armenia is aiding recovery and rehabilitation after conflict, check out their most recent report.
Thank you for your continued generosity and compassion!

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
