Empowering Primary Healthcare Providers
Artsakh Nurses Training Program provides a unique opportunity to reach the most prevalent, yet perhaps most undervalued, medical professionals. Often nurses are the only healthcare providers in rural communities and as such, bear the burden of delivering primary medical care.

Why Support FAR?
FAR was born out of a rush to provide emergency assistance to those whose lives were destroyed by a devastating earthquake. More than 30 years later, FAR is a leading player in Armenia’s development, working in solidarity as a trusted partner with Armenians to craft a better future for their nation through transparent, effective and efficient programs.
“Now that we have the warehouse, sun driers and electric driers, [co-op members] dry about 20 tons of apricots every year. On average, we harvest about 60 tons of apricots each year.”
—Arkadi Khachikyan, President of the Yervandashat Agricultural Association Consumers Cooperative.
In 2015, FAR helped the co-op to build their own storage warehouse and also supported them through gifts of fumigation facilities, electric dries, and other essential equipment so they could make a consistent profit from their annual apricot harvest.
