Milestone reached!

We have reached a milestone in our fundraising for! Just a few weeks ago we passed the $300,000 mark since our humble beginnings in late 2014. As you know, we initially gave all the money we raised, close to $100,000, to Aid to the Church in Need who were housing and feeding the persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria. After Nasarean became a 501c3 in 2016, we decided on our specific focus of aid and advocacy, with aid being very specifically oriented towards mini-micro financing small businesses, so Christians could stay in their own countries. Our total raised includes that initial $100,000 donated to ACN. We are so grateful for your continued generous support,  and our success stories from our “small but beautiful” charity show how this help is really changing peoples lives, one family at a time.

Here is a video produced by the Armenian Apostolic Diocese of Damascus. We are working closely with our friend Archbishop Armash Nalbandian, the Archbishop of Damascus. This is another sign of the ecumenical character of Nasarean. The video shows the rebuilding of some of the structures in Homs, which is under Archbishop Nalbandian’s direction. We are supporting the training schemes he plans in the new Church centre, which will lead to new jobs, especially for young people. Other charities are helping with the rebuilding. The city of Homs was completely devastated during the ongoing war (people forget the war is still happening) - this video gives you a chance to meet Bishop Armash, who is a wonderful leader, and to see some progress. Your help already created a number of new jobs in Damascus with the hairdressing courses that Bishop Armash organised - we will keep you updated as things progress in Homs.
