On January 31, 2017, nine people were relocated to Armenia from Aleppo through the “Save a Life” project of the Aleppo NGO.
Representatives of the Aleppo NGO welcomed them at the Zvartnots airport in Yerevan. The relocation of the Kashishian family, Garabed family, Nareik Tahmis Jyian, Talin Ardhalejian and Lousin Deukmaji were possible thanks to the financial support from IDeA Foundation.
Since May 2015 and until today, Aleppo NGO 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 NGO 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 NGO’s “Save a Life” project, assisting those individuals who wish to relocate to Armenia, escaping from the Syrian war.
