AWHF Funds Advanced Treatment for Avetis Zargaryan


AWHF raised $30,000 to fund advanced treatment in Moscow for Avetis Zargaryn, the most heavily injured surviving hero of the April 2016 war.  Avetis’ spine was severely injured in multiple areas from combat wounds, leaving him paralyzed for eight months. In mid-January, AWHF transported Avetis to Moscow for intensive, advanced treatment.  Within two months, Avetis was able to sit upright, move his arms and legs, and even brush his own teeth.  Avetis is now back in Yerevan for rest and basic rehabilitation.  Thank you to our donors who saved this young hero from permanent paralysis.
