The Armenian Relief Society issued a statement on February 9–regarding its decision to provide assistance to the Armenia’s of Javakhk in response to the rapid deterioration of socio-economic–educational–and cultural conditions. The ARS has always worked toward improving the lives of Armenia’s living throughout the Diaspora–and will continue to do the same for the Armenia’s of Javakhk–especially since the region was an integral province of historic Armenia. The Javakhk Armenia’s face tremendous difficulties in their day to day lives–and humanitarian assistance is needed to prevent serious consequences its inhabitants face.
The ARS has created a special body to deal with fundraising events and programs like the "Javakhk Fund." The Armenian Relief Society is calling on all Armenia’s to aid their brethren in Javakhk. For more details contact the ARS at (818)500-1343.
