Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the Fire Victims and their Families

We are deeply saddened about the devastating fires in the Napa/Sonoma/Santa Rosa area. This devastation hits close to home for all of us at AFA, as we have several members and their families living in the impacted areas who are dealing with the effects of the fire. We have been in contact with most of them and fortunately all are safe.

I also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we are all one family at the Assyrian Foundation of America. If any of our members is in need of help during these challenging times, we are here to help. Please email me at president@assyrianfoundation.org
With the recent hurricanes, earthquakes, shooting in Vegas and now these fires, we realize how vulnerable we are as humans, and it reminds us how blessed we are to be part of a strong bond and strong Assyrian community. Together we can help each other heal, and find ways to truly make a difference.

This is the time to reflect on what each of us can do to create good in the world, in our communities, in our neighborhoods and in our own families. The Board and I are working on finding ways to help the victims and their families.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their families right now.

Jackie Yelda, President
