United Armenian Relief (UAR) is a grassroots initiative by the Armenian youth dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to impacted communities in Lebanon. Populations affected by the explosion in Beirut are in desperate need of immediate food and medical provisions. In Armenia, UAR volunteers will receive medical and food supplies, properly package them and send them via partnering commercial airlines in Armenia which have regular flights to Lebanon.
The Middle East Airlines has designated space and cargo planes to deliver aid to impacted communities in Lebanon.
Upon arrival in Beirut, UAR, partnering with Bonheur de Ciel, AGBU Lebanon and other local& respected NGOs, will distribute the collected goods to communities in Lebanon.
Drop-off locations in Yerevan are located at:
- “Al Mayass” Tamanyan 1/16
- “Scancelli Gallery”, 1/1 Abovyan St.
- Vahakni, 19 Ara Ler St.
- Armenian Assembly of America, 37 Hanrapetutyan St., (entrance is on Melik Adamyan St.; use the elevator, and push button for the 3rd floor, or climb stairs to the second floor.)
The goods will be prepared for shipment at “Scancelli Gallerie”, Abovyan 1/1.
