The Mr. Michael Martin Food Assistance Program – 10 January 2019

One of the initiatives undertaken by the Armenian Church in Dhaka is the ‘Mr. Michael Martin Food Assistance Program’. Today the program offered meals to 292 local Dhaka people. It also provided essential milk for 57 hungry babies.

The food assistance program initially ran on a monthly basis, but due to the local high demand for help, it has been offered on a weekly basis since the autumn of 2016.

The church is an intrinsically altruistic institution that will always strive to provide comfort and aid to its surrounding community and visitors.

The Armenian Journey Begins

“Armenians settled and founded a colony at Dacca in the early part of  the 18th century when,it was one of the principal commercial centres in Bengal, but with the removal of the Viceregal quarters of Bengal from Dacca to Murshidabad, or Maxudabad, as it was then called, ended the distinction of Dacca as a city of metropolitan importance, This was in the beginning of the 18th century.” Mesrovb Seth
