Support to the war-wounded and families of martyrs of the 44-day Patriotic War

During last two months our hearts have been beating with the Glorious Azerbaijani Army fighting against Armenian aggression for restoring the justice and obliging Armenia to peace.
We once again congratulate all of you and the people of Azerbaijan on the brilliant Victory achieved as a result of the 44-day liberation campaign. AmCham extends its deepest condolences to the families of military servicemen who died heroically for the Victory and to the families of civilians who lost their lives a result of war crimes and terrorism perpetrated by Armenia.
As you may already know, on December 8, 2020, the President Ilham Aliyev signed Order on establishment of “YASHAT” Fund in order to support the war-wounded and families of martyrs who protected the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Under the presidential order, the Fund’s resources shall be formed through voluntary financial assistance (donations) provided by citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Azerbaijanis living abroad, other individuals and legal entities, as well as other sources not prohibited by law.
As AmCham, we applaud this initiative and support the establishment of the Fund. Staying committed to the last two years’ decision of the Chamber on changing the policy on delivery of traditional corporate gifts at the end of each year, we encourage all our members to donate holiday gift budgets to the “YASHAT” Fund.
We once again pay tribute to all our heroes who sacrificed their lives and health for making our life better!
