COMMUNITY APPEAL: Help Syrian-Armenians Battling COVID-19

By | Wednesday, 23 September 2020

SYDNEY & MELBOURNE: Armenian-Australians have been invited to participate in fundraising for the Armenian community in Syria, currently facing a serious battle against an outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus with limited access to medicines and emergency supplies.

Hundreds of Syrian-Armenians have been infected by the outbreak, which has swept through Armenian-populated towns, and several community members – including youth have already succumbed, tragically losing their lives.

On the back of the debilitating war in the country, the Syrian-Armenian community is in desperate need of funds to purchase the necessary supplies and medicines to ensure minimal loss of life.

The Armenian Relief Society of Australia is leading a community-wide appeal for funds to help our Syrian sisters and brothers during their time of need.

They will host a Facebook telethon on Sunday 11th October 7:30pm, on the Armenia Media Facebook page.
