Ralph Yirikian and friends support launch of irrigation system in borderland village of Dovegh

The village of Dovegh in Tavush shares around 15 km long border with the neighboring country. The problems of infrastructures, which only deepened in the years following the collapse of the Soviet Union, did not spare Dovegh community. The water from the nearest woods was once used for irrigation of the land lots shouldering the borderline, but the threat of direct shelling has forced to suspend agricultural works on the territory of the settlement.

The only solution to the problem of security in the community has been making the lands adjacent to the houses irrigable, which was a serious issue due to the lack of necessary financial means needed for the creation of a new water system. With the support of concerned individuals the issue is solved after 30 years. AMD 19,5 million has been invested into the construction of irrigation network that will provide water to the land lots adjacent to the houses of the villagers. Construction works are implemented by “Dovegh” Foundation.

The opening event was attended by financial supporters of the program, General Manager of Dovegh Foundation Nairi Sargsyan, Governor of Lori region Vahe Ghalumyan, Head of Noyemberyan community Karen Abazyan, Head of administrative territory of Dovegh Samvel Gorginyan, as well as residents of community.

“I am happy to say the situation has changed in Dovegh: owing to contributions by people who care for the community development – Ralph Yirikian, Robert Nazaryan, Suren Sahakyan, Vachik Qoqobelyan, and Fred Nazaryan, the decades-long problem has been solved. Infrastructures are important in borderland areas for some specific reasons: villagers earn their living, stay here and have the safety issue solved to be able to work in the fields,” says Samvel Gorginyan, the head of Dovegh administrative territory.
