Ambassador Morgenthau estimated that one million Armenian refugees had survived the Genocide. The survivors were mainly women and children left destitute by the deportations. By the end of 1916, the Committee was assisting as many as 500,000 women and children. Hundreds of people in Constantinople were dying of starvation, having nothing to eat but grass.
