Fallen soldiers’ families need emotional and economic support to help them rebuild their lives.
Friends of the Armenian Soldier and Family (FASF) was founded by Adam Kablanian in February 2021 in response to the distressing humanitarian crisis affecting the soldiers and their families from the Nagorno-Karabakh war. FASF aims to create a continuous culture of giving for Armenian-Americans to support the needs of our veterans and their families back in Armenia. FASF is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) charity (EIN #86-2191892) and donations are tax-deductible according to the law.
FASF identifies, screens, and partners with organizations in Armenia who are on the ground helping Armenian veterans and their families. Our grants provide financial stability, rehabilitation, education, and career training.

What We Value
We want the Diaspora to feel a human bond with our fallen and disabled soldiers and their families, and to know that each gift is meaningful, no matter the amount.
We believe the most powerful way for the Diaspora to demonstrate support is to “join” and become part of a community that gives to those in need.
We define impact for our veterans as perpetual support that continues into the future rather than the result of a "one and done” philosophy.
Meet the Board
"Our fallen soldiers make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our homeland; ensuring their family members have sustainable support is the least I can do to honor the memories of these brave young men and women."
