LOS ANGELES — During the SARF (Syrian Armenian Relief Fund) Save a Life Telethon to raise money for critically needed aid to Syrian-Armenians, on February 21st, a delegation of the Armenian Bar Association will present $10,000 to SARF to aid and improve living conditions of Syrian-Armenians.
Syria has been ravaged by a civil war for the past five years, which has destroyed cities and towns and left residents displaced, without shelter, and lacking the most basic necessities. The Syrian Armenian Relief Fund provides humanitarian assistance for the essential needs of the Syrian-Armenian Community – food, water, and medical assistance.
The ARMENIAN BAR ASSOCIATION from its inception in 1989 has been committed to a mission of active improvement of human and civil rights of Armenians and of the Armenian community in the Diaspora and Armenia.
“The Armenian Bar Association is steadfast in its resolve to always rise fiercely in support of the plight of our Syrian-Armenians Compatriots,” said Saro Kerkonian, Esq., West-Coast Vice-Chair of the Armenian Bar.
The Armenian Bar Association with hundreds of its members is the largest association of lawyers, judges, academicians and law students in the world. The Association will continue to answer the call for duty in support of Armenians in distress, wherever they may be.
