The Armenians of Lebanon continue to suffer one of the longest and most intractable financial meltdowns in the country’s modern history. Inflation is stratospheric while hope is plunging to all time lows. AGBU donors continue to support the impressive critical work of AGBU donors and staff in Lebanon to provide assistance to Armenians determined to keep their homes and community safe. From providing food, medicine and education to offering mental health support and employment connections, AGBU has stepped up in critical ways to ensure that the Armenians of Lebanon thrive once more. Learn more about our work below.
With the economic crisis in Lebanon showing no signs of relief, we are more determined than ever to serve our Armenian community. Help us continue our efforts by giving to the Global Relief Fund.
The selfless and swift actions taken by AGBU volunteers and staff in Lebanon ensured that Lebanese Armenian community and the greater Lebanese community received sustenance and assistance. This work began in early 2020, but what followed after the August 4 blast was truly heroic. The escalated and continued efforts focused on rebuilding and supporting children and families has made an incredible impact on so many levels. Berge Setrakian, President
