12 thousand Syrian-Armenians live in Armenia

12 thousand Syrian-Armenians live in Armenia -

People living in Armenia and diaspora always support and extend a helping hand to the Syrian-Armenians settled in our country. The Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Non-Governmental Organization (ACCO), together with "Diaspo Arts" artists' group from France, as well as a number of other artists from Armenia and Syria, organizes a charity exhibition and sale in the Museum of Modern Art. All proceeds from the "Stop in Yerevan" exhibition will be transferred to the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Non-Governmental Organization to support the families affected by the Syrian crisis.

The Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Non-Governmental Organization had planned that it would last only seven days, but taking into account the interest of the people, the exhibition will continue until August 22. “This is already the seventh “stop” of "Diaspo Arts", this time in Yerevan.

104 works of 29 artists are displayed. Works by Armenian, French, Syrian-Armenian artists are represented. "Aleppo" will use the sales proceeds for construction of accommodation for the Syrian-Armenians. We have a housing program, which is under development. The program supposes construction of accommodation for needy families. Offices will be on the first floor and residential areas will occupy the other floors. We will try to keep the Syrian-Armenian families in Armenia, so that they do not leave the country, and avoid emigration," as reports “Artsakhpress” in a conversation with “Armenpress”, this was stated by the member of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Non- Governmental Organization Youth Committee Hakob Kazanjyan.
