Kim Kardashian is donating $1 million to the Armenia Fund, an organization that helps people impacted by the ongoing conflict in the country through humanitarian and infrastructure development.

On Saturday, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, whose late father, Robert Kardashian, was of Armenian descent, shared the news and raised awareness for the Armenia Fund on Instagram.

"I’m so honored to be part of today’s global effort to support the @armeniafund," Kardashian said in a video. "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."

"My thoughts and prayers are with the brave men, women and children," she continued. "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."

The Armenia Fund directly helps those affected by the unrest in the country by giving them food, shelter and medical care. The $1 million donation is Kardashian's way of supporting the foundation's efforts.

"I will be donating $1M to assist their efforts on the ground and invite you to join me. Whether you are helping with just raising awareness and posting on social media or donating just $1, every bit helps," she continued.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian both traveled to Armenia with their kids last year. Kim, along with her children Saint, Chicago and Psalm, was baptized at the Etchmiadzin Cathedral in Vagharshapat. Kim's daughter, North, was first baptized in an Armenian church in Jerusalem while the reality star was still pregnant with Saint.

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian also joined Kim in raising awareness for the organization and participated in the fundraising livestream for Armenia.

In a video she posted on Instagram, Khloe said, "It’s especially important to me as a mother to think of the children. The fear and hardship that comes with conflict should not have to be experienced."

"My thoughts and prayers are with those children and their families and the very brave men and women," she added.

The Kardashian siblings' call comes as Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a cease-fire in Nagorno-Karabakh on Saturday, CBS News reported. This followed two weeks of fighting between the forces that began on Sept. 27.
