Catholicosate of Cilicia
Antelias - Lebanon
9 October 2014. On Thursday morning, the newly elected committee met with His Holiness Aram I to discuss their programme and ask for his blessings for their projects.
After listening to their presentation, the Catholicos thanked and commended them for their project to provide free health care and assistance to the Armenian community in Syria and the refugees in Lebanon. He then added, "The Armenian Relief Cross was created by our women to accompany the victims of the Armenian Genocide; it continued its work in the Diaspora to provide relief and consolation to our needy families everywhere. The Catholicosate of Cilicia is deeply grateful that you are continuing this proud tradition by providing humanitarian assistance to our suffering Syrian Armenian community."
