GLENDALE - The United Armenian Fund (UAF) contributed almost $24 million in humanitarian assistance to Armenia during the fiscal year 2005, consisting primarily of medicine and medical supplies, according to the latest audit of its financial statements.

The audit also shows that the UAF spent less than 1% of its total revenues on administrative expenses, allocating the remaining 99% to assisting the people of Armenia and Karabagh.

During its 16 years of operations, the UAF has delivered to Armenia a grand total of $415 million in relief supplies through 135 airlifts and 1,237 sea containers.

The UAF was formed through the collective efforts of the Armenian Assembly of America, the Armenian General Benevolent Union, the Armenian Missionary Association of America, the Armenian Relief Society, the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, the Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America and the Lincy Foundation.
