True to its tradition of several generations of targeted social and humanitarian action, the Boghossian Foundation has set itself the goal of acting where the need is most pressing. Since 2011, ethnic and religious minorities in Syria were forced to leave their homes, persecuted and threatened with death. More than 3 million people are currently experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, classified at the highest level by the United Nations. This is why the Boghossian Foundation has chosen to support EliseCare. Traveling through conflict zones using buses that have been transformed into mobile clinics, this non-governmental organization provides medical and psychological assistance to displaced populations. EliseCare is more mobile and reactive than institutional organizations and can work with civilians, survivors and refugees living in remote areas, far from cities and medical centres.
On the occasion of the Gala Dinner in favor of EliseCare’s action with the refugees, Sotheby’s auctioned a series of works and prestigious items generously donated by the artists collaborating with the Foundation and the Friends of the Villa.
