COVID19 Relief

The Knights and Daughters of Vartan share the concern of helping to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In early May of 2020 the Knights and Daughters of Vartan collaborated with the Fund of Armenian Relief (FAR) Ayo! Program through a $10,000 matching campaign, $5,000 of which was a matching grant pledged by NAS Nigoghos and Mrs. Roset Atinizian.

In just a week, the needed funds were donated both from individual Knights and Daughters and from various chapters. Many Knights and Daughters felt a responsibility to join forces in support of our homeland. Our support was assigned to Tavush region, which is one of the poorest regions and has the longest border with Azerbaijan. During following weeks, and with our donations, Ayo distributed 400 packages to 400 families in Tavush region. The packages included basic necessities as well as food.

The second project is sponsored by Gomidas lodge and Talar otyag based in San Diego, California. They are one of the youngest and smallest groups, but large in their generosity and dedication. In mid May, the KOV/DOV San Diego chapter gave a $500 donation to the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia COVID19 fund to support front line health care workers.
