"Shant and Freedom" Fund was founded in order to support families who are persecuted for their political views.
"There are 15 political prisoners: Shant, his friends, and fighter by the name of Volodya Avetisyan. They have families and children who are in need of moral and material support," said the foundation's founder Felix Hayrapetyan at the conference in the Media Center.
The Fund aims to provide legal assistance to those who are persecuted and to create social, health, financial programs for their families. The activities of these programs will be regulated by the Foundation's Board of Trustees.
