Friday, November 19, 2021
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM (Pacific Time)
The recent war launched on Nagorno Karabagh (Artsakh) and the subsequent humanitarian crisis led to the formation of Operation Armenia, a coordinated effort of a dedicated interdisciplinary team providing immediate medical disaster relief to Artsakh and Armenia. Over time, the focus of this group shifted from immediate humanitarian aid to long-term infrastructure support.
This panel will present the accomplishments of Operation Armenia over the past year and its shift from providing immediate disaster relief to long-term support, the challenges that the initiative has faced, as well as summary of upcoming and ongoing projects.
