On March 28, 2017, the family of Derkmenjian, numbering 3 people, was relocated from Aleppo to Armenia within the framework of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable NGO.
The representatives of the Aleppo CCO welcomed the families at the Zvartnots airport in Yerevan. Their relocation from Aleppo to Armenia was made possible thanks to the financial support from the Initiatives for Development of Armenia (IDeA) Foundation.
Since May 2015 and until today, Aleppo CCO implements its “Save a Life” project – an initiative that aims at supporting those Syrians who found themselves in a difficult financial situation and addressed Aleppo CCO asking for help to purchase a one-way ticket to Armenia.
To remind, on October 15, 2016, the IDeA Foundation released a statement on the current situation of Syrian Armenians, announcing its support to those of them who are willing to be relocated to Armenia. This initiative of the IDeA Foundation is implemented through Aleppo CCO’s “Save a Life” project, assisting those individuals who wish to relocate to Armenia, escaping from the Syrian war.
