Australia advocates for $24.5 million aid to Armenians in Syria

The Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC Australia) has announced it is working with the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (DFAT) in securing an aid package for Syrian-Armenians who have fled to the Republic of Armenia.

Australia has become the third-largest international donor of aid to victims with a current assistance package of $24.5 million, reported.

The Hon. Walt Secord MLC added his voice in support of the Syrian-Armenian community, and the efforts to deliver to them some of the Australian government’s assistance package.

“I know that members of the local Armenian community are worried about their loved ones in Syria. My thoughts are with them at this time,” he said.
“I support the Australian Government’s commitment through AusAID, pledging $24.5 million to help refugees in the region.”

ANC Australia Executive Director, Vache Kahramanian stated: “The conflict in Syria is grave and we are engaged with the Australian government to ensure an allocation of the $24.5 million is provided to aid agencies in Armenia. Full details will be announced in due course.”
