Syria Lifeline Saves Lives…
One Beat at a Time
What do Ani, Serop, Mary and Hagop have in common? They are some of the latest Syrian-Armenians who the Armenian Missionary Association of America has moved from Aleppo to the safety of their Homeland in Armenia.
They have all lived in danger, lost homes and jobs, and feared for their own safety and that of their children. Each and every day, they lived without hope and peace.
Today, many more of our sisters and brothers are in desperate need. Recent reports from Aleppo have confirmed that rebels continue to fire missiles and artillery into many Christian neighborhoods, causing large-scale destruction and death.
The AMAA established the Syria Lifeline to help families, like those of Ani, Serop, Mary and Hagop, who are forced to leave their homes and resettle in Armenia. They have little or no money. Financial assistance is desperately needed to ensure they reach a safe place to stay in the Homeland where they will find food, water, clothing, education and medical assistance. We must not forget them.
We pray that you will come to their aid and continue living the joy of giving. Your caring gift, no matter how large or small, will help provide much needed relief to these families who have undergone so much suffering and unrest. They are also in need of your daily prayers.
May God continue to bless you for your generous support and may God embrace and provide strength to our brothers and sisters in Armenia.

In their own words: “Thank You!”
U.S. to Offer Aid to Armenia for Syrian Refugee Crisis
The Armenian Assembly of America reports that the U.S. House Appropriations Committee approved a bill that allocates assistance to Armenia, to help support our homeland’s efforts with housing refugees from Syria.
Maintaining Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act, the bill includes language for aid to nations hosting Syrian refugees “shall be made available for programs in countries affected by significant populations of internally displaced persons or refugees.”
“As Congress finalizes the House and Senate Appropriations Bills, the Armenian Assembly will continue to push for additional assistance to help Armenia cope with the influx of refugees fleeing from violence in Syria, as well as for much needed humanitarian assistance to help Nagorno-Karabagh rebuild after the April war launched by Azerbaijan,” said Bryan Ardouny, the executive director of the Armenian Assembly of America.
