Armenian Wounded Heroes Fund Calls for Donations to Help Disabled Soldier


YEREVAN (Panorama.am) — The Armenian Wounded Heroes Fund has called for a support of a wounded soldier in April war to pass a six-week therapy to walk normally. In a statement on Facebook the Fund informs that Hayk Sekhliyan was wounded in April 4, 2016 as part of a small unit of Armenian heroes who fought against a large number of Azeris and successfully liberated an overrun position in Talish.

“He has lived with a severely injured spine and can’t walk without a cane. He has already been evaluated by a hospital in Germany and will require 6 weeks of therapy at a cost of $35,000 to walk normally again. With your help, we can thank him for this sacrifice and actual liberation of a strategic part of our homeland,” the statement said.

The Fund asks for donations through its Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/donate/1368374223313006/1368374243313004/.
