About the ProjectThis campaign started on November 14, 2014 This campaign finished on
Several mines in Armenia deposit heavy-metal pollutants into the environment affecting the land, water, and air in nearby communities. Poor monitoring and enforcement of regulations leaves these communities exposed to toxic pollution.
Let’s Protect Armenia from Toxic Pollution raised the funds necessary to provide the American University of Armenia’s Center for Responsible Mining with the laboratory equipment needed to survey the impact of mining on 40 communities.
This independent monitoring is important because it will inform the communities of the dangers that exist as a result of the mining and will empower them to take steps toward preserving the health of their communities.
