Dear Sponsor, 

This is Nikolay. I am 10 years old and live in the city of Chartar in Artsakh. I love very much my Armenia and my Artsakh – both are my motherland. 

I want to live under a peaceful sky in my country, and I don’t want to live in any other country; I cannot live in any other country because I am very attached to my native land and water, my beloved Artsakh. 

I know that we, Armenians, always had a difficult fate and that our enemy has never left us in peace. I hate those who covet our lands, and I know that God will punish them for the tragedy they brought to our family and to thousand families like ours. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about that. 

I am very grateful to you, extremely grateful…
