WATERTOWN, Mass. (A.W.)—The Armenian Relief Society (ARS) Eastern U.S. has appealed to the public to join its efforts in supporting Armenian families in Syria.
“There are hundreds of Armenian families with small children who remain trapped in the conflict zone with limited or no resources. Your support will help us provide families assistance during this critical time. The need is enormous and our resources are stretched thin,” read a statement issued by the ARS Eastern U.S. Board of Directors.
The ARS Eastern U.S. has put together the “Sponsor a Syrian-Armenian Family” Program to help assist Syrian-Armenian families in need. The program calls for donations of any amount to distribute basic needs including food, water, safe shelter, baby formula, clothing, and utilities.
The ARS stresses that any amount will help: $30 will provide 10 hot meals; $50 will help an Armenian child attend Armenian school this fall; $100 will provide 3 months of heating fuel for a family; and $1,200 will provide a family with young children with food, water, and formula for a year.
Below is the statement by the ARS Eastern U.S. regarding the program.
The goal of the ARS Eastern USA “Sponsor a Syrian-Armenian Family” Program is to provide regular financial assistance to our needy Syrian-Armenian families in the hope of alleviating some of their daily struggles in obtaining necessities for living day to day. This includes food, water, safe shelter, baby formula, clothing, utilities, etc.
Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, the Armenian Relief Society of Eastern USA has been working with the ARS of Syria on the ground to provide much-needed humanitarian relief to the needy. Your support has enabled us to continue supporting Syrian-Armenian families and schools, providing hot meals, emergency shelter, and safety for families in the conflict zone, as well as maintaining the winter warm home program.
We reach out to you today to ask for your support once again for our ARS Eastern USA “Sponsor a Syrian-Armenian Family” Program. There are hundreds of Armenian families with small children who remain trapped in the conflict zone with limited or no resources.
Your support will help us provide families with assistance during this critical time. The need is enormous and our resources are stretched thin.
A monthly donation will allow us reach more families in desperate need and allow us to provide long-term support.
They are counting on us and we hope we can count on you!
