About Us

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.14.2″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

We work to ensure the self-sufficiency of Assyrians in Bet-Nahrain.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.14.2″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

The Assyrian Aid Society is a charitable organisation operating in six countries in four continents, namely the U.S.A, Great Britain, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand with its head office in Iraq. These organisations raise funds individually for the benefit of Assyrians living in Bet-Nahrain.

The Assyrian Aid Society Australia (AAS-AU) operates independently from its sister societies and is not aligned to any political or theological organisation. It is guided entirely by its constitution and the related decisions of its members. Membership is limited to committee members who are not office bearers of any other charitable, political, religious or community organisation.

Our mission is to use all possible, legal means to generate and acquire funds in terms of cash and assets to be used for the benefit of Assyrians in Bet-Nahrain.

These contributions will ensure and sustain their self-sufficiency through creation and development of businesses, educational institutions, health, agricultural industries and social infrastructure.

Fundraising

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 Bet-Nahrain.

How We Work

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.14.2″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

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.
