The ARS of Eastern USA has established a number of ongoing programs and projects in Armenia, Artsakh, Javakhk, Syria, and Lebanon. These programs and projects require the continuous support of the ARS of Eastern USA.
The “Amanor” program was established in 2000. To date, over $20,000 has been allocated to many humanitarian institutions serving the Armenian communities throughout the world, such as the Bird’s Nest Orphanage and
Zvartnots School for disabled children in Lebanon, old age homes and shelters in Lebanon, Syria and South America, “Soseh” kindergartens in Artsakh and Bulgaria, orphanages in Armenia and helping disadvantaged children in Javakhk.
Every year, ARS members donate the modest sum of $3, as their heartfelt
“Amanor” Yuletide present. Christmas and New Year celebrations are organized at the above mentioned institutions, and gifts are distributed to seniors and children in the spirit of Christmas.
