Hayastan All-Armenian Fund implements drinking-water project in Martuni Region’s Sos VillageThe Hayastan All-Armenian Fund continues to make headway in the construction of a drinking-water network in Sos, a village in Artsakh’s Martuni Region, as well as the refurbishment of the community’s broken water reservoir. The project, launched in October 2009, is co-sponsored by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s French affiliate and the government of Artsakh.
Already the construction of the 7.6-kilometer internal water-distribution network is complete. The next and final phase of the project, slated to start in February 2010, will comprise the renovation of the main water reservoir and construction of the smaller distribution reservoirs.
“Unfortunately numerous rural communities throughout Artsakh and Armenia still lack reliable access to water,” said Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. “We are extremely gratified that, with the project in Sos, yet another community will have resolved its water crisis.”
Igor Ghahramyan, mayor of Sos, said that the residents of the ancient village obtain much of their water supply from a single local well, which is in grave disrepair and whose water is not safe for drinking.
“Water is the most vital element connecting villagers to the land, and only after solving the water problem can they begin to address other issues facing the community,” Ghahramyan added.
The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund continues to carry out a number of vital development projects in the Martuni Region. In 2009 it completed water-network projects in the villages of Berdashen and Spitakashen. Currently the fund is implementing school-building initiatives in the communities of Gishi and Chartar, and in the summer of 2009 it completed the construction of a new school in Spitakashen.
