We Reflect Back on a Year Since the War

On September 27, 2020, the Armenian world experienced a rude awakening about the national security of our homeland. Since that fateful day, the people of Armenia and Artsakh have had much to overcome. AGBU reflects back on the vast work executed with the support of the broad community and recognizes the profound sense of Armenian solidarity in times of crisis. We thank all the donors, volunteers, supporters, partners, and friends across the Diaspora.
