SARF-Telethon-2016“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2)

Dear faithful,

It has been almost five years since the start of the war in Syria and there is no end in sight. The innocent civilians caught in the crossfire continue to suffer extreme hardship and are in dire need of our collective support.

We urge you all to keep our brothers and sisters in Syria and in Aleppo especially in your prayers, and to lend a helping hand to alleviate their suffering.

The Syrian Armenian Relief Fund (SARF) will be holding a Telethon on February 21, 2016. We call for the generous support of our community on that day and throughout the year.
