Alexander Sokolowski, USAID Deputy Assistant Administrator for Europe and Eurasia, met with people displaced from Nagorno Karabakh in Metsamor, Armavir region. DAA Sokolowski learned about the impact last year’s hostilities have had on individuals and communities and the current challenges they are facing.
“I was moved to meet with people displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh. I was grateful for the opportunity to hear their stories, ask questions and better understand their experiences. The people I met with are receiving assistance at a communal shelter in Metsamor. I am glad that USAID was able to offer them support in a very difficult time,” he said.
During and after last year’s hostilities, the U.S. Government sprung into action to support critical emerging needs by providing clothes, food, and shelter to people displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh.
Since 2020, the U.S. Government has provided more than $5 million to support those impacted by last year’s hostilities.
