Special Announcements

Our own Sister Arousiag of Our Lady of Armenia Center (OLA) in Gyumri has been called the "Mother Teresa of Armenia". View the article HERE.

We are sad to announce that Bob Semonian, a long time board member of SOAR-Boston, passed away over the weekend after a long illness. SOAR sends our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. His obituary can be seen here.

As conditions in Artsakh remain unstable, SOAR remains committed to assisting the two Armenian orphanages in Stepanagert and Kashatagh. If you would like to earmark a donation to the Artsakh orphanages, CLICK HERE and choose Artsakh Orphanages from the drop down menu.

Thank you for your continued support of our orphaned Armenian children.

SOAR is nominated
for the prestigious
Hilton Humanitarian
Prize Award!


SOAR receives Hilton Grants to renovate water pipes and Tashir convent/orphanage!


Lilit is eight years old. She was born in Armenia in 2007 and diagnosed with severe scoliosis. Due to this condition, Lilit was placed in an orphanage at ten days old. However, medical treatment was not available to her in Armenia.

In 2016 after months of planning, the Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) and the Harold and Josephine Gulamerian Armenian Orphan Fund made it possible for Lilit to travel to the United States to finally receive life-saving surgery.

Syrian Armenian Disaster Relief Updates and Distributions in Syria and Yerevan

June 3, 2016
Yesterday around six pm a big rocket hit the school and the convent and both places are severely damaged. Thank God we were not home we were in church when this happened. On our way back home a big propane tank thrown by the rebels exploded in front of the car that we were riding and by a heavenly intervention none of us in the car was hurt I almost were thrown from the car... Now we have to fix all damaged places. We are emotionally and physically very tired and exhausted.
Keep praying.

Sister Louisa
