We work to ensure the self-sufficiency of Assyrians in Bet-Nahrain.
The Assyrian Aid Society is a not-for-profit organisation operating in six countries across four continents, namely Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A, Canada and Sweden with its headquarters in Iraq. These organisations raise funds to aid indigenous Assyrians living in their homeland.
Our mission is to empower Assyrians living in Bet-Nahrain through funding development of social infrastructure,educational institutions, health, agricultural industries and businesses. With the ultimate goal of sustaining and strengthening the Assyrian presence in their indigenous lands.
We engage in fundraising activities by way of donations and other activities for the benefit of needy Assyrians in Bet-Nahrain.
The funds will be directed to the relief of poverty, the advancement of education, health, agriculture and any other purposes beneficial to the Assyrian community in Iraq (Bet-Nahrain).
Building Community Links
Through our grassroots work, we establish community networks to support AAS-AU on a continuous basis, and build a sustainable relationship with Assyrian organisations throughout Australia as a source of financial and social support.
We seek to stimulate and encourage youth participation in community activities that will help the development of Assyrian Aid Society in the long term.
How We Work
The Assyrian Aid Society – Iraq (AAS-I) proposes fully-costed projects. These proposals are distributed to all the Assyrian Aid Societies for selection.
AAS-AU selects the project that it considers to be appropriate, taking into consideration all the issues concerned, such as urgency, size and the amount that is needed to be raised. Regular feedback from AAS-I is provided and the final result is then communicated to all the contributors of AAS-AU.
Funds are not sent to individuals or families but directly through the committee of AAS-I for project/s that have been selected by AAS-AU. This is our main differentiation from other fund raising institutions.
