Asbarez: ARS Western U.S. Raises $50,000 for Lebanon

August 7,  2020

The injured from Tuesday’s blast flock to ARS centers around Beirut

As a result of the devastating explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on August 4, the Armenian Relief Society of Western USA has raised $50,000 among its chapters, members, and individual donors as part of the Armenian Relief Society, Inc.’s Emergency Appeal for Lebanon. The ARS Regional Executive Board has mobilized into action to collect additional donations for disaster relief efforts through this campaign. The destruction caused by the explosion has caused substantial deaths, thousands of injuries, structural damages, and has left hundreds of thousands homeless.

The severe impacts of this disastrous event have had an enormous impact on Armenians in Lebanon and abroad. The ARS Regional Executive Board calls upon its members and community to lend a helping hand to Lebanon, which has served as a home country to Armenians who sought refuge among the Diaspora.

The ARS centers around Beirut are a refuge for the community

Now more than ever, we collectively find it our responsibility and duty to offer the utmost moral and financial support to extend humanitarian aid and to help alleviate the challenges of our Lebanese Armenian compatriots.

Donations can be made online by marking Lebanon Disaster Aid. Checks payable to ARS can be mailed to the ARS Regional Headquarters, located at 517 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale, CA 91202. Tel. (818) 500-1343

We ask that your heart lead you and you bring help where it is needed now in Lebanon. Your contribution, in any

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
