Americans4Artsakh is promoting modern health care for Armenians affected by the Karabakh war. As dental health is essential for overall health, Americans4Artsakh collaborates with dentists and hygienists for the provision of dental services as well as oral health education for important preventative measures.
- Dental Care 4 Artsakh Refugees & SoldiersThis project provides dental care and promotes oral health for Artsakh refugees, displaced families, children, soldiers, and vulnerable populations in Armenia. It was started by a Registered Dental Hygienist named Maria Avakyan-Antonarakis. During a recent 4-week volunteer mission to Armenia, Ms. Avakyan-Antonarakis provided dental hygiene procedures and sponsored urgent dental treatments to children, soldiers, and refugee families from Artsakh following the 2020 war.
The memory of my uncle being killed in the most inhumane manner during the Karabakh war of the 1990s makes me committed to supporting self-determination for the people of Artsakh. It is stories like those of my family that are evidence we are facing a genocidal threat when under Azerbaijan. My hope is to bring us together for the people of Artsakh in their just fight for freedom! Our goal is to bring a healthy smile for all Artsakh.
