Internationally renowned film director Atom Egoyan has donated $5,000 to the “Hayastan” All Armenian Fund, the Fund’s Executive Director Haykak Arshakyan informs.
Using the online payment platform Egoyan wrote: “On the occasion of Atom Egoyan’s 60th Birthday. I had hoped to celebrate it in Armenia.”
“Egoyan, much like thousands of Armenians, cannot be in the Homeland this year but has made a donation to help Armenia overcome this Pandemic,” Arshakyan writes.
“Dear friend, thousands of you are in a similar situation, with disrupted summer plans, consider donating a fraction of the cost of your ticket to support Armenia’s fight against this Pandemic and bring your next visit a little closer,” he adds.
