Few opportunities in life are as direct, simple and rewarding at those offered to contributors to the Children’s Fund for Armenia (CFFA). Created in the aftermath of a natural disaster, one can make an enormous difference to the life of a child with a contribution of less than one dollar a day. This charitable Fund expresses the sense of community, the generosity and humanity of Armenians everywhere. Each One Reaches One: CFFA has sponsored more than 1500 children left orphaned by the earthquake that devastated Armenia on 7 December 1988. Through sponsorship, financial assistance is provided to the families and guardians caring for them. Now, 13 years later, our goal is to expand CFFA’s charter to include children who are living in poverty as a result of the country’s deteriorating economy, and children who have lost a parent through illness of the Karabagh conflict.
Spiritual and financial support are need to continue this humanitarian partnership between our Canadian Diocese and Armenia’s future generation.
