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
Despite facing compounding crises, the Lebanese Armenian community continues to define Armenian resilience and perseverance. AGBU donors worldwide have come together to support the impressive and critical work of AGBU volunteers and staff in Lebanon providing holistic support for 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 in in critical ways to ensure that the Armenians of Lebanon thrive once more.
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.
