On November 15, 2016, five more people – four members of the Panosian family and Sahag Parseghian – were relocated to Armenia from Aleppo through the “Save a Life” project of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization.
Representatives of the Aleppo CCO, the Initiatives for Development of Armenia (IDeA) Foundation and the “Mission Armenia” NGO welcomed the Panosian family and Sahag Parseghian at the Zvartnots airport in Yerevan. Their relocation to Armenia was made possible thanks to the support from the 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 Initiatives for Development of Armenia (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 will be implemented through Aleppo CCO’s “Save a Life” project, assisting those individuals who wish to relocate to Armenia, escaping from the Syrian war.
