On July 26th, ACSSU of Canada held an Anniversary Gala to celebrate 15 years of existence. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who contributed to the raffle contest we held at this event. The funds that were raised by the Gala attendees allowed the Assyrian Aid Society of Iraq (AAS-I) to provide humanitarian aid for the IDPs in the Zakho area involving the villages: Bakhloja, Bajida, Avzarok, Sorria and Zakho center. Thanks to the contributions, there were 110 families that were supported with food supplies such as rice, milk, cheese, and sugar. We hope that we are able to continue this initiative and provide even more to our brothers and sisters who have been displaced. Thank you also to the hard working AAS-I members who are able to bear the fruits from the help we are able to provide.
This little girl is our inspiration and represents the hope that exists in the hearts of our brothers and sisters who are facing difficult times in Iraq and Syria.
