Noubar Afeyan: “Aurora has coined the expression “Gratitude in Action” as the human spirit”

On October 19, 2020, despite the challenges caused by the global pandemic and the heartbreaking military aggression in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the first event of Aurora’s “Gratitude in Action” anniversary series took place in New York City, honoring the Aurora Prize Laureates and Humanitarians and the Initiative’s 5th anniversary.

Noubar Afeyan, Co-Founder of the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative, shared a powerful message at the “Gratitude in Action” event:

“The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative has coined the expression “Gratitude in Action” as the human spirit that can motivate humanitarian activism and giving. When this pandemic is defeated, we will all have much to be grateful for just like those whose lives were saved by our Aurora Prize nominees and Laureates. Our collective Gratitude in Action can help others at a time when the world needs it more than ever before.”
