Asbarez – The Executive committee of the Syrian Armenian Relief Fund (SARF) will hold a fundraising telethon in late February 2016 to provide financial assistance to Syrian Armenians who are victims of the ravaging civil war.
A special task force was formed and preliminary activities have started. The telethon will be broadcast in Southern California on cable TV channels. It will also be webcast worldwide on www.syrianarmenianrelieffund.org. More details will be provided to our community in the days to come.
Pre-telethon fund raising has already started and representatives of SARF will soon contact individuals and various organizations to secure their support.
We are confident that once again our community will rise to the occasion and do its utmost to give generously and help our suffering people.
SARF was established 3 years ago in Los Angeles and is comprised of 10 major organizations of the Armenian community in the Southland: Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America, Western Diocese of the Armenian Church, Armenian Catholic Eparchy in North America, The Armenian Evangelical Union of North America, The Armenian Revolutionary Federation, The Armenian Democratic Liberal Party, Social Democratic Hunchagian Party, The Armenian Relief Society, Armenian General Benevolent Union, The Armenian Missionary Association of America.
