We are delighted to be able to send you pictures taken from the recent Assyrian Church of the East Relief Organisation (ACERO) Childrenâ€™s New Year Party, which was held in Damascus, Syria on Saturday 2 January 2010.
We are very pleased to inform you that this year over 520 children took part in one of the biggest parties we have organised. This will be aired on TV in the coming few days.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support of ACERO and would like to convey special thanks to:
Rev Gewargis Bet Rasho and the congregation of St Maryâ€™s Los Angeles and
Mr Freddy Tamraz and members of the Assyrian Foundation of America
for sponsoring this event and for their additional contributions to our ongoing programme of assistance in Syria.
A special thanks also to Addison Edward and the ACERO church committee and volunteers in Syria, under the guidance of His Grace Mar Aprim Athneil, Bishop of Syria, and Reverend Toma Stepou, who have actively assisted us in these difficult times.
With the blessing of His Holiness Mar Dinkha IV, Cathilicos Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East, and our Chairman His Beatitude Mar Meelis Zaia and your continued support, ACERO is now reaching many more of our people who are in need around the world.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year for 2010.
Yours in Christ
