The Armenian Relief Society of Western USA urges members and supporters to take part in ARS humanitarian relief efforts in the aftermath of the typhoon in the Philippines.
Approximately 1.4 million people in the Philippines are in dire need of emergency assistance. At least 500,000 people are homeless and in need of food and water.
As Thanksgiving Day approaches, we are confident that our chapters and the Armenian communities will collectively respond to this humanitarian appeal and raise funds in the name of the ARS family. Our hearts and prayers remain with those who lost loved ones, and are struggling to survive. We trust that you will respond to our call to action.
Donations may be made to the ARS Philippine Relief Fund by check, credit card, PayPal, or by visiting our website at www.arswestusa.org. The ARS will send the donations collected via the American Red Cross.
As an international humanitarian organization, the Armenian Relief Society has always responded to calls for help for victims of natural disasters, raising tens of thousands of dollars for disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in Haiti and in Mexico, the tsunami in Japan and others. The regional headquarters may be reached at (818) 500-1343 for additional information.
