It’s not every day you have representatives of different countries, all under one roof, or, in this case, huddled around the lovely man-made Swan Lake. For the last 5 years, Yerevan has been host to the “Countries Under One Roof” Festival-Exhibition. This year, from September 20-21, the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization also took part in the event organized by GMG Media Group, and supported by the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Yerevan Municipality. Around 90 organizations and diplomatic structures from 30 different countries were present at the event, including representatives from the jewelry, health, innovation, IT, tourism, manufacturing, wine and cognac, as well as service industries. The event’s revenues will be utilized in meeting the needs of Syrian-Armenian refugees in Armenia.
The NGO was represented by 4 booths, where the handicrafts and culinary efforts of the volunteer women, along with the talented artistry of Syrian-Armenian silversmiths, were showcased. Special thanks are to be said to the organizers of the event, GMG Media Group, and it’s founding president Mariam Manukyan, for their generous offer for the Aleppo NGO to take part in their event.
