Recently, USATV’s Bagrat Sargsyan and Vahag Sargsyan and their friends successfully arranged for 20 tons of urgently needed humanitarian aid that was shipped via a Boeing 757 charter aircraft from Los Angeles to Armenia. The shipment includes vital necessities to help the citizens of Artsakh, victims of the unprovoked war waged against Armenia and Artsakh. Financial support for the mission was provided by Sargsyan friends, Harutyun Harutyunan, Dr. Stephan Gevorkian, Vardan Seropyan, Gary & Hakop Taglyan, Arthur Levonyan and Nelson Patatanyan, along with the collective efforts of LA Armenians and Armenia Fund.
