The treatment and rehabilitation of 62 more veterans are underway in Turkey and the Yashat Foundation monitors the treatment process for servicemen until they are fully recovered. In addition, the Foundation also provides medicines for the treatment of servicemen.
Set up in 2020, the 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.
Foundation has also organized a summer camp for children of martyrs who lost their lives during the Karabakh war of last year. It is planned to organize six camps with the participation of 300 children.
