The Children of Armenia Fund have honored our founders, Jack and Zarig Youredjian, with the Humanitarian Award at this years Gala, which took place in New York City. Both Zarig and Jack were recognized for their generous support of various COAF initiatives throughout rural Armenia. In his remarks, Jack recalled how his late mother would visit and live with families who were forced to live in containers in the aftermath of the Spitak Earthquake and how helping those in need is ingrained in his upbringing.  Both Jack and Zarig come from families committed to community life and helping those less fortunate. In addition to supporting Armenia, their philanthropic efforts also help the impoverished in Africa and Southeast Asia, as well as the homeless in Los Angeles. Although humbled by the recognition, we congratulate Jack and Zarig for the impact they have made in the lives off those in need.
