In a moving ceremony, Syrian-Armenian doctor Haig Khatcho (Khatchadourian) received a house in Artsakh’s Ishkhanadzor Village from the Foundation in early June. Doctor Khatcho relocated to Artsakh last year, and started a new life in the Kashatagh region after escaping prosecution by ISIS during the Syrian civil war. Finding solace in the land of his ancestors, Haig Khatcho has decided to contribute his skills, experience and expertise as a physician for the development of Artsakh.
Giving to people like doctor Khatcho is not just charity, it is an investment in Kashatagh and its people, an investment that has already started to pay off. A neurologist by profession, Dr. Khatcho has set up practice as a general practitioner in the only clinic of the village. Here, he provides a range of medical services not only to the residents of Ishkhanadzor, but also the neighboring communities.
The Foundation will continue bringing decent living standards for the people of Kashatagh not only through building and renovating houses, but also through the development of vital infrastructure and providing opportunities for further growth of the region.
