Help Support Wounded Artsakh War Veteran with Home Renovations

The Western Diocese of the Armenian Church and the St. Kevork Armenian Apostolic Church of Oregon seek to raise $19,000 to help give wounded Artsakh war veteran Davit Hovhannisyan a new home through the Tufenkian Wounded Soldier Support Initiative.

Meet Davit Davit Hovhannisyan, 33, was wounded in a drone attack outside of Shekher village in southern Martuni, with severe injuries to his legs and burns to various parts of his body. Despite many operations, one of his legs remains shorter than the other. He continues physical therapy to be able to regain full mobility. Davit lives with his parents, three brothers, and extended family. He is engaged to be wed in the near future. Davit’s home is in desperate need of renovations and his future family will also need more space. The Tufenkian Foundation has proposed to convert storage rooms next to Davit’s current home into a two-room house by adding running water, toilet facilities, new electrical wiring, windows, flooring, and other necessities. Renovation, which is expected to take 45 days start to finish, will cost around $29,000. The Tufenkian Foundation has secured a matching grant of $10,000!
