When we completed the delivery of a container with 8,600 canteens in November 2017, there was no question on anyone’s mind that more was needed on the front lines.
In summer 2019, we embarked on the fundraising for the second container of canteens. In just a few short months and thanks to the generous donations of our hundreds of sponsors, we were able to raise the necessary funds to place the order for another full container of the same aluminum thermal canteens we had ordered two years earlier. The shipment was ready in February 2020 but then came the Covid-19 pandemic and our canteens sat at the manufacturer’s warehouse in China for several months.
In late August, 2020, our container arrived in Meghri, where we offloaded it and delivered the 8,600 canteens to Stepanakert.
