July 16, 2016
To Whom It May Concern
The Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch confirms that “Slibo Suryoyo”, “Hubo d’Slibo Suryoyo e.V.”, “Syrian-Aramaic Help Org. IC” and “Beilo Foundation in Diaspora” are not affiliated with the Syriac Orthodox Church, nor do they represent the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate in any way.
The above mentioned organizations work completely independently and without the knowledge or consent of the Syriac Orthodox Church and its hierarchs in Europe and throughout the world. Therefore, we confirm that the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate does not directly or indirectly support any of these organizations, nor do we actively promote their fundraising or other activities which are done outside the realm of the authority of the church.
In testimony of the above, this letter was issued.
