Celebrating Our Success!

We are excited and pleased to announce (internally) that the Ărramăt Project has been granted the New Frontiers in Research Fund – Transformation Stream! All of our hard work over the past year has been recognized – congratulations to us! We wanted to express our gratitude to every single one of you who has helped us reach this point.

On September 3, 2021, we hosted two All-Partners meetings where our Co-PIs shared their Jury Presentation, as well as facilitated a discussion about the next steps. If you missed the All-Partners Meetings, please feel free to watch the recordings below to catch up on the discussion and celebration!  There will be many more opportunities to connect as we start the administrative work of setting up our grant and working agreements.

Please remember that the announcement of our project funding is under embargo.  This means that we are not yet able to speak about the project in relation to the funding agency publically.  Keep this in mind as you talk about the project within your network.  We do not yet have a date for the formal announcement but it will not likely come before mid-October.  We will not be changing language in the website or posting to our social media accounts until after the announcement has been made.  


Call for Website Photos:

Now that we are funded, we are hoping to add more images from our Team and projects! Throughout the website, we have many images that showcase the amazing global research conducted by our partners. However, there is some stock footage that we would like to replace. If you have any images that you think will be a great addition to our website – please email them to info@arramatproject.org and be sure to tell us who took them and how you’d like them attributed.


As always, if you have any questions or are in need of more information, please contact Tracy Howlett (thowlett@ualberta.ca) or Abby D’Souza (dsouza@ualberta.ca)!

    My name is Aziz Badawi, I’m 27 year old man from Palestine. Our town has recently evacuated due
    to bombardments by Israel, now I am staying at a shelter with my 6 year old daughter Nadia. My wife is
    dead and I’m the only one left to take care of my daughter as we are not allowed to depart to my parents house
    in Nablus, she is sick with a congenital heart defect and I have no way to afford the medicine she needs anymore.
    People here at the shelter are much in the same conditions as ourselves…

    I’m looking for a kind soul who can help us with a donation, any amount will help even 1$ we will
    save money to get her medicine, the doctor at the shelter said if I can’t find a way to get her the
    medication she needs her little heart may give out during the coming weeks.

    If you wish to help me and my daughter please make any amount donation in bitcoin cryptocurrency
    to this bitcoin wallet: bc1qcfh092j2alhswg8jr7fr7ky2sd7qr465zdsrh8

    If you cannot donate please forward this message to your friends, thank you to everyone who’s helping me and my daughter.
