ArmInfo. The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative continues to help the people of Artsakh and is pleased to announce that this program is entering a new stage.
During this phase, Aurora's network will connect volunteers willing to share their time and skills with others and humanitarian organizations seeking local support, the initiative says. At the same time, Aurora will continue to directly assist 20 different projects with a total budget of 102 million AMD ($ 200,000) and conduct the # AraratChallenge4Artsakh international fundraising campaign.
During its activity, "Aurora" has developed a number of diverse platforms for finding solutions to the most pressing global problems, while accumulating unique experience in working with motivated volunteers. The initiative also has an impressive contact base of 9,000 people willing to share their time or skills to help Aurora and her projects. More than 3,000 volunteer applications were submitted for participation in the Aurora events program in 2018 alone.
When "Aurora" announced the search for volunteers willing to support the people of Artsakh, about 300 people responded to the call. The team will now help them connect with the projects listed below.
1. The Bari Mama Foundation needs 10-15 volunteers to package and purchase gifts, as well as to organize a New Year party for children from Artsakh. No special skills required.
2. Organization Bruntsk2020 is looking for people willing to help sort, pack and deliver packages to those in need from Artsakh. No special skills required.
3. The Apaven volunteer project intends to attract 10-15 volunteers per week to make basic necessary for soldiers from the front line and refugees from Artsakh. Volunteers who know how to sew are preferred, but the project is ready to teach the necessary skills to all those who responded.
