An Urgent Appeal

WE HAVE HEARD THE CALL… “Our homes have been taken from us; centuries of our heritage has been destroyed. This is a call to all Armenians; this is a call to humanity.”

In the light of the latest developments in the Kessab region of Syria, which subjected the Armenian families to surprise attacks and looting, and forced them to flee for their lives, the Executive Committee of the Syrian Armenian Relief Fund (SARF) held an emergency session and decided to immediately transfer $100,000 in direct financial assistance to reach our compatriots to provide a degree of physical subsistence and financial relief.

The struggle for survival of the Syrian Armenians continues and requires a united will to provide immediate assistance.

Let us share their will to survive and provide on-going assistance to them. Send your donations to the Syrian Armenian Relief Fund, P.O. Box 1948, Glendale, CA 91209-1948.
