Last week the Executive Committee of the Assyrian Aid Society of America approved an emergency $20,000 grant to the Assyrian Aid Society-Iraq for the purpose of meeting an AAS-Iraq education budget shortfall precipitated by the government’s failure to honor its obligations in supporting the Assyrian schools.

The money will specifically cover teacher salaries that have been going unpaid because those funds have been necessarily diverted to student transportation expenses that could not be delayed, such as fuel purchases, vehicle rentals, and maintenance costs.

The government, in its own formally approved annual budget, allocated tens of thousands of dollars to pay for the costs of the buses transporting students to and from the Assyrian schools. However, with the failure of those promised budgeted funds to be released, it has fallen upon the Assyrian Aid Society itself to keep the buses running and to safely transport hundreds of students to their classrooms every school day.

On behalf of the Assyrian Aid Society of America I wish a happy and most blessed Easter to all of our Directors, chapter officers, volunteers, supporters and friends around the world.

Spring is a season of rebirth and hope, and Easter is an occasion of family communion, the perfect opportunity for all of us to reflect upon our lives and what we can do to improve the lives of others.

The Assyrian Aid Society of America University Chapter at UC Davis has made an appearance at the 100th Annual UC Davis Picnic Day, the nation’s largest student-run event with over 75,000 attendees and around 200 events and activities! The members of AAS-A University Chapter hosted a booth at this school event for the first time on April 12, 2014, selling the new AAS-A Alphabet Coloring Book and refreshments. The hardworking volunteers informed their booth guests about the mission of the AAS-A and the current situation of Assyrians throughout the middle east.

"The 100th Annual Picnic Day was an excellent opportunity for AAS-University Chapter, Davis to make its debut. It was an all-around successful event and we were able to effectively showcase our organization as well as our culture,” says Andrew Davoodian, the President of AAS-A University Chapter at UC Davis. This event marks yet another successful program by the AAS-A University Chapter and showcases the organization’s mission and achievements on campus and within the greater, surrounding community.
