HAYASTAN ALL ARMENIAN FUND'S 17TH TELETHON RAISED $12.4 MILLION

09:24, 28 Nov 2014

$12.4 million was raised at 17th Telethon of the Hayastan All-Armenian
Fund.

With proceeds from the 2014 Telethon, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund
will complete the asphalting of the entire highway as well as install
all remaining safety and navigation components, including traffic
signs and lane marks.

Initiated at the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund's 2013 Board of Trustees
meeting, the Vardenis-Martakert Highway construction project is of
major economic and strategic significance. When completed, it will
function as an additional lifeline between Armenia and Artsakh,
helping boost the economies and specifically tourism industries of
the twin republics.

Toward the realization of this major construction project, as well as
other important projects, the worldwide affiliates of the fund have
been carrying out a multitude of public-awareness and fundraising
campaigns since the beginning of 2014. In Armenia, from November 1,
the fund launched SMS- and postal-donation programs, encouraging
grassroots support of the initiative.
