For over a century, ever since the 1915 genocide, Lebanon, particularly Beirut, has been a home for Armenians. Generations of our people have grown up, worked, married, and raised their families in Beirut. As a new niche and homeland, Lebanon and its people have shown great kindness to Armenians.

Help Armenia and Artsakh

A CALL TO ACTION!

Knights and Daughters of Vartan our homeland is calling you to help!  Our organization was formed in 1916 as a result of the Genocide of our people.  Here we are 105 years later, and we are again facing the threat of annihilation. I am sure you have all been following the suffering of our people in Artsakh at the hands of the Azerbaijani and Turkish governments.  While there is some sense of helplessness and shock for us in the diaspora, there are definite measures we can take.  The Armenian army is worldwide!  While our young men and women are on the ground fighting, we have our part in this war. 

As your Avak Sbarabed and Avak Dirouhie, we are calling on EVERY member to immediately donate.  The Knights and Daughters of Vartan as an organization is planning on making a sizable donation.  Won’t you consider adding to the donation by giving.  You can add to our donation by going to:

kofv.org/helparmenia

This donation must be different than previous donations.  We are not donating to build a road or bring in water.  We are donating to SAVE our homeland.  As Knights and Daughters of Vartan, this is our calling!  Our people are suffering, if we can suffer even in the slightest by donating, it is the least we can do.  Our donations must be substantial to make a difference. Putting this in perspective, if each member donated $1,000 we could add over a million dollars to the cause.  Donate what you can, but remember your donation will help save our homeland. Please encourage your family and friends to donate also.

The other important effort we can undertake is bringing our issue to our local communities.  Contact your local officials and make sure they understand our situation.  Letters to the editor of your local papers to help inform the general public.  If you have contacts on a more national level, then leverage your contacts to bring our case to the forefront. 

This Call to Action is not an option!  If we wish to call ourselves Knights and Daughters of Vartan, then this is our time to stand and let our voices be heard.
