The foundation ensures a transparent, efficient and accessible platform for additional support (financial and other support measures) implemented by the state to families of soldiers.
The newly-established foundation’s work covers the families of servicemen killed or disabled during the war and also the families of employees of state bodies (institutions) who became disabled or lost their lives while serving in the liberated lands or while removing the consequences of military operations in the liberated lands.
Yashat receives donations made through voluntary financial assistance provided by Azerbaijani citizens, Azerbaijanis living abroad, other individuals and legal entities, as well as other sources not prohibited by law.
As of March 1, the Foundation has collected over AZN 30.1 million ($17.7M)
