“Homeland of Hope, Homeland of Light, My New Homeland, Powerful Homeland…”
The Coordinating body of the “Socio-psychological Assistance to Syrian Refugees” project of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization (Aleppo-NGO) restarted its activities after the summer vacation. The body drafted a 4-month plan of activity including a visit to the Hovhannes Tumanyan Museum on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the poet.
On September 6, 2019, members of the “Socio-psychological Assistance to Syrian Refugees” project participated in a ceremony at the church of the Holy Mother of God and met with priest Vahan Arakelyan.
After the ceremony 60 members of the project visited the Tumanyan Museum and were inspired by the works and masterpieces of the poet. After beautiful and interesting day the women expressed their gratitude to Mrs. Ani Eghiazaryan, the director of the Tumanyan Museum, and guides Anahit Nalbandyan and Mayta Poshkezenyan for providing an opportunity to visit the Museum and enjoy the day. At the end of the visit, a note was made in the Memorial Book of the Museum on behalf of Aleppo NGO.
As a reminder, Aleppo-NGO’s “Socio-psychological Assistance to Syrian Refugees” program is organized free of charge. The aim of the meetings is to provide support to those who lived through the conflict in Syria and continue to struggle with psychological side effects. The program’s mission is to assist in survivors’ rehabilitation and help them reintegrate into Armenian civil life.
