Mrs. Anna Hakobyan’s meeting with the Defenders of the Homeland
An honest conversation took place in the Reading Hall of the Center, during which the soldiers talked about their military path, raised concerns, and made some observations not only about the army and the war, but also about the challenges facing our country. Arthur Abrahamyan, an Artsakhi soldier, who is recovering in the Center, said that he had an unequivocal decision to return to Artsakh and to rebuild a house, an army, a country from scratch, to be in solidarity, stay united and determined to achieve victory again.
Mrs. Anna Hakobyan listened to everyone and answered all the questions and assured that all the wounded and injured would receive medical care to improve their quality of life, and that no one would be left behind. “The strength of both physical and mental health of our soldiers is important to me. Your treatment and recovery will start as soon as possible. No doubt about that”, said Mrs. Hakobyan.
The soldiers expressed gratitude to the staff and the doctors for their professionalism, human qualities and the warmth received. Armen Muradyan, YSMU Rector, and Haykuhi Minasyan, Director of "Support for Wounded Soldiers and Military Disabled Persons" NGO, Coordinator of the works of the Rehabilitation Center provided an updates on the work done and current activities, raised issues that need to be addressed.
Let us remind you that the Foundation consistently provides assistance to the Homeland Defender’s Rehabilitation Center, keeping focus on the wellbeing of our brave servicemen.

From 60 to 70 new wards, new rooms for physiotherapy and ergotherapy, pain management room, prosthesis room, express laboratory would be built in the space renovated by the Foundation. As a result, the Center will be able to serve twice as many soldiers per month as it does now.
