A socio-psychological assistance meeting took place today, March 3, 2018, at the office of Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization-NGO (Aleppo-NGO).
The meeting kicked off with a group prayer, followed by the guest speaker – Father Pargev Palgevorgyan, the pastor of St. Hakob Church in Mrgavan. He introduced the participants to a new series – 7 cardinal sins, also known as 7 deadly sins, within Christian teachings. This time he focused on the first deadly sin – pride. It is an inwardly directed emotion that refers to a foolishly and irrationally corrupt sense of one’s personal value, status and accomplishments. The speech was followed by a Q&A.
The free, socio-psychological assistance meetings at Aleppo-NGO provide support to Syrians who went through the war and find themselves experiencing psychological side effects, helping them to recover and become actively involved in the civil life of Armenia.
The meetings take place every Friday at the Aleppo-NGO office. The address is 11 Northern Avenue, -1 floor.
