All proceeds of this tee will benefit Looys (meaning light in Armenia) by @kooyrigs providing immediate, transparent aid to the displaced people of Artsakh.
In September, @kooyrigs, an Armenian NGO, launched Looys as a response to Azeri aggression on Armenians in Artsakh.
Artsakh is an independent republic globally recognized as Azerbaijan, but ethnically populated by majority Armenians. Earlier this summer conflict arose in the area, leading to war. Thousands of Armenians were killed and even more were forced to leave their indigenous lands & ancestral homes.
Looys, or "light," is a grassroots campaign, to deliver emergency aid to the people of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Kooyrigs team members in Armenia hand-deliver food, water, medication, clothing, diapers, formula, sanitary products, and household essentials to families affected by the war.
Աչքը ինչ տեսնար, սիրտը չի մոռնար
What the eye sees, the heart won’t forget.
This is an old Armenian proverb, which speaks levels to their community. Not just for Armenian’s, but all indigenous and displaced peoples. May your traditions and cultures endure.
