From the start of the 44-day Artsakh War, on September 27, 2020, the ARS Central Executive Board began preparing a list of the growing number of children orphaned by the ongoing armed hostilities. The ARS remodified its Sponsor-A-Child Orphan Assistance Program to the Children of Fallen Heroes Sponsorship Program. Today, those children receive an annual stipend of $300 ($330 Sponsorship).
It is the wish of the Armenian Relief Society that not a single child across our Homeland be allowed to remain unsheltered, without support. The ARS needs the moral and financial assistance of its members, supporters, donors, and benefactors to help care for these children.
