ARF West Urges Assistance to Tsunami Victims
The December 26 natural disaster in Southwest Asia recognized no political frontiers. The resulting death and destruction from that forceful tsunami once again reveal that all of humanity belongs to one global family.
The entire world has rushed to provide aid to the victims of that disaster. Approximately 15 years ago–at about the same time of the year–the world over provided relief to Armenia’s when tragedy struck Armenia.
We believe that international peace and harmonious coexistence of nations are permanent values–and mankind can overcome such calamities only through cooperation.
We–therefore–appeal to all Armenia’s living in the Western region of the United States–to follow the initiative taken by the Armenian Relief Society as well as the Diocese and Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church to provide necessary assistance to the tsunami victims–and contribute to the humanitarian drive to provide comfort to them. As a member of the global family of nations–we should take the opportunity to convey our gratitude and assist those in need.
