AceShowbiz –Kim Kardashian has donated $1 million (£766,540) to help out Armenia amid the ongoing conflict in the country.
The 39-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star took to Instagram on Saturday (10Oct20) to announce her pledge to the Armenia Fund, which helps those impacted during the unrest with food, shelter and medical care.
“I’m so honoured to be part of today’s global effort to support the @armeniafund. I’ve been speaking out about the current situation in Armenia and Artsakh and having conversations with so many others to bring further awareness to the crisis that we cannot allow to advance,” Kim shared.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the brave men, women and children. I want everyone to remember that despite the distance that separates us, we are not limited by borders and we are one global Armenian nation together.”
