“While rooted in Armenian history, our mission is global. We celebrate and spread the work of modern-day heroes – people saving and changing lives in extraordinary ways, often at risk to their own lives,” said Noubar Afeyan, Ph.D., Co-Founder of the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and Founder and CEO of Flagship Pioneering. “We believe that even in the darkest times, a brighter future is in the hands of those who are committed to giving others help and hope. We welcome all those who share that vision. Please consider joining us as we put gratitude into action.”
