by Steffen Richter,  2013/10/09

He stayed in Germany for some days, in order to beg for help for his home country Syria, which has been torn apart by a brutal civil war. During his stay in Germany, the Right Reverend Bishop Armash Nalbandian, Primate of the diocese of the Armenian Church in Damascus, never tired of appealing for peace and of supporting any international or national effort for peace.

However, the current situation in Syria is so precarious that he left an open letter, which can be summarized in one sentence: “Please help us!”

For two and a half years now, people have died every day in Syria. Official estimations say that there have been more than one hundred thousand victims so far. More than five million people are refugees, many of them in Syria’s neighboring countries.

“The situation in Syria is dramatic and outside their country, for example in Lebanon, the refugees are badly off, because of the difficult conditions in the camps”, explains humedica managing director Wolfgang Groß.

“In the weeks to come, we are going to broaden our help a lot. We are going to realize further measures in Syria directly.”humedica had already distributed aid supplies at different places in the country, amongst other things 9,000 blankets in the Aleppo region at the beginning of 2013.

Bishop Armash Nalbandian describes the situation in his home country very clearly in his open letter and asks the German population for help directly. humedica joins his plea and asks you for directed donations:
