72 Babies Born to Families from Artsakh Since Ethnic Cleansing and Mass Exodus

In a bittersweet testament to the resilience of the Armenian spirit, it was revealed that 72 newborns have entered the world in families forcibly displaced and ethnically cleansed from Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) to Armenia. Armen Nazaryan, the Deputy Minister of Health of Armenia, shared this heartening news during a press briefing held by the Humanitarian Center of the Armenian government on Thursday.

Nazaryan informed the media that among the 72 newborns, 37 came into the world in the capital city, Yerevan, while the remaining 35 were born in various provinces across Armenia. This heartwarming news provides a glimmer of hope amidst the challenges faced by families torn from their homes due to the mass exodus in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Deputy Minister emphasized the extent of displacement, stating that 38,102 individuals who were forcibly evacuated from Artsakh have been registered in Armenia's primary medical centers. He explained that these registrations have been conducted through both individual visits and mobile teams, highlighting the comprehensive efforts made by the Armenian health authorities to provide necessary support to the displaced population.

This significant number of births, despite the challenging circumstances, serves as a beacon of hope for the displaced families, reminding the world of the remarkable strength exhibited by these communities in the face of adversity. While they may have been uprooted from their homes, the arrival of these newborns symbolizes the enduring spirit and hope for a better future, even in the midst of displacement and uncertainty.
