Nagorno-Karabagh President Bako Sahakian recently announced improvements to the water supply as a priority for the Artsakh province. In fact, this year the All-Armenian Fund’s Board of Trustees will allocate $14 million for such programs. FAR completed another project last year when we collaborated with the Armenia Water Company to improve water supply for about 100,000 residents of Artashat and 27 surrounding communities. Through a multi-million dollar grant from USAID, FAR installed new pipelines and resorviars which brought portable running water to many for the first time. Marie L.

[FAR Partnerships | USAID]: May their life be as long as water! standard

Julieta, a resident of Shahumyan village which recently benefitted from the project, is thrilled to have clean water. Julieta and her husband built their house in Shahumyan twenty years ago, and had never had local access to clean drinking water. “We looked with envy at the houses that had clean drinking water.

The rural residents of the Araratian Valley live comfortably as compared with the residents of other regions of Armenia. The soil is fertile, and ample harvest grounds characterize the area. Shahumyan village, located 5 km far town Artashat, contains a newly-build district of the village, containing houses with beautiful gardens.  However, this village previously lacked a clean water supply. ...
