WASHINGTON–DC–Long-time supporter of Mountainous Karabagh Republic (MKR) John Kchikian and his Detroit-based Armenian Children’s Relief Fund has announced plans to sponsor the complete renovation of the Kolkhozashen village school in Karabagh.
Projects such as this are not new for Kchikian–who has provided humanitarian relief and encouraged economic development in Karabagh since the beginning of the Liberation Movement and throughout the years of struggle. In the past several years alone–Kchikian sponsored the renovation and refurbishment of schools in the Taghaser–Vardashat–and Mairamadzor villages of Karabagh–repaired and upgraded water systems in two villages–provided tens of thousands of dollars for medical treatment of Karabagh’s children and veterans–and helped renovate a museum in Stepanakert dedicated to fallen heroes of the Karabagh Liberation War.
"We salute Mr. Kchikian’s continued humanitarian assistance to the people of Artsakh," said Vardan Barseghian–MKR Representative to the United States.
"The mutual trust–confidence–and good working relationship between Mr. Kchikian and Artsakh’s Representation are a source of pride and joy for us. I am pleased to convey the gratitude of the MKR government for Mr. Kchikian’s continued generosity and outstanding vision."
MKR’s representation in the US welcomes Kchikian’s new initiative and expresses confidence that the renovated school will be ready to welcome a happy crowd of school children this fall. They also call on other American Armenia’s to help ensure a better educational environment for Karabagh’s children–and future leaders of liberated Karabagh–by adopting similar projects currently featured on the Artsakh Wish List–which is available to potential sponsors.
The Office of the Mountainous Karabagh Republic (MKR) in the United States is based in Washington–DC and works with the US government–academia–and the public–representing the official policies and interests of the MKR.
