Winter Relief Airlifted to Armenia

Samaritan’s Purse has sent their DC-8 aircraft packed with winter relief supplies to Yerevan, Armenia. They will be delivering critically needed warm clothing to families who have fled the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the long-disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Since fighting broke out on Sept. 27, thousands of people have had to flee their homes in the Caucasus mountains. Their team is bringing more than 11 tons of winter clothes and blankets, enough for 500 families in need. The boots, coats, gloves, socks, and thermal underwear included in the shipment will be especially welcome now that temperatures are consistently dipping into the 30s.
