TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE LIVES

Since 2012, the AGBU community has raised $2.5 million in donations in support of AGBU's humanitarian assistance in Syria and in support of relief programs for Syrian Armenian refugees re-starting their lives abroad.

Today's need is far greater than we could have ever planned and in order to continue our relief efforts and ensure the safety and security of our fellow Armenians, we must raise an additional $2.5 million but we can't do this alone.
