An Urgent Appeal from Kessab Educational Association of Los Angeles
The liberation of Kessab, the only remnant of our Cilician Armenian kingdom inhabited
by free Armenians, needs large amount of financial assistance to rebuild homes,
schools, churches and orchards. The devastation left behind by rebel occupiers who
invaded our town on March 21, 2014, is beyond belief!
The situation of schools and orchards is of particular concern. For the 300 students to
continue their education, schools’ teaching staff must be paid regardless.
Orchards represent the main and often the only source of income for most villagers.
Luckily, crops look abundant, but all farming equipment including small tools, essential for cultivating
and harvesting have been stolen or rendered useless. If the orchards are not taken care
of immediately, most farmers will lose their whole year’s income.
We therefore appeal to you to donate generously by sending your contribution to:
Kessab Educational Association of Los Angeles, Inc. P.O.Box 1507, Reseda, CA 91335.
