Through its fund raising events, the ARA receives varying amounts of monetary and non-monetary contributions which are indispensible for the charity to keep giving the free help and assistance it has been providing to alleviate the plight of refugees since 1975. easyDNA, a private DNA testing company, which has for several years been involved in various charitable events, was one of the companies to sponsor the fund raising event in line with its constant corporate philanthropic goals in issues the company has at heart.
