Head of  Fund: In just one day, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund  managed to raise $ 40 thousand

ArmInfo.  In just one day, the  Hayastan All-Armenian Fund managed to raise $ 40,000, which will be  directed to help the residents of Beirut who suffered from the  explosion. On August 7, during the discussions on how to support the  Armenian community of Lebanon, said the executive director of the  Fund Haykak Arshamyan.

According to him, the Fund has opened a special account in the  Central Bank, where donors' funds are accumulated. As of today, 200  individuals and legal entities have responded to the call for  assistance to Lebanon.

In turn, High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs Zareh Sinanyan noted  that the next flight the Armenian delegation will leave for Beirut to  study the situation on the spot. "We do not want the impression that  we are going to help only the Armenian community in Lebanon, I  believe that both the Lebanese government and the Lebanese will be  able to misunderstand such a message. We are going to help Lebanon on  behalf of the entire Armenian people," Zareh Sinanyan noted. He added  that the Armenian delegation intends to get acquainted with the scale  of destruction and the possibilities of reconstruction of some of  them on the spot.

Earlier today, RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on his Facebook  page that the first aircraft with humanitarian aid for Lebanon will  fly to Beirut on the evening of August 8. 

At the same time, he noted that this board will send 12 tons of  humanitarian aid to friendly Lebanon.  "Two more flights with  humanitarian aid will take place next week. An Armenian delegation,  consisting of representatives of the RA government, the National  Assembly and the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, will also leave for  Beirut," Pashinyan said.

Yesterday, Pashinyan said at a meeting of the executive body that  Armenia had already declared its readiness to provide the necessary  assistance to overcome the consequences of the tragedy in Lebanon and  would provide assistance to the Lebanese government and the Armenian  community.

In his words, the RA government, through the country's Foreign  Ministry and the office of the High Commissioner for Diaspora  Affairs, is in constant contact with the Lebanese government and the  local Armenian community. At present, Nikol Pashinyan continued, the  amount of this aid is being determined, which will become targeted. 

At the same time, the Prime Minister noted, all those benefactors who  wish to take part in the restoration of Beirut can transfer funds to  a special account in the RA Central Bank, opened by the Hayastan All  Armenian Fund. "Armenia supports our brothers and sisters in Beirut,  and will make every effort to provide assistance and get Lebanon out  of this difficult situation," the head of the Armenian government  stressed.
