On November 18, 2016, five people – the three members of the Mushoian family, Berch Petros and Harout Ayvazian – were relocated to Armenia from Aleppo through the “Save a Life” project of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization. Their relocation to Armenia was made possible thanks to the support from the Initiatives for Development of Armenia (IDeA) Foundation.
The representatives of the Aleppo CCO, IDeA Foundation and the “Mission Armenia” NGO welcomed them at the Zvartsnots airport in Yerevan.
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.
