Our current work in Artsakh mainly focuses on the resettlement and development of the strategic liberated borderlands, particularly in Kashatagh and Hadrut, through improved housing and infrastructure and creation of opportunities for economic development. We do this by building and renovating houses, clinics, schools and kindergartens, installing, repairing and expanding water supply and irrigation systems, supporting wounded soldiers, fostering the resettlement of Syrian-Armenian refugees and cultivating the fertile lands of liberated Artsakh.
