Aleppo-Armenians desperate to move to Yerevan, ask for help

PanARMENIAN.Net - Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization has officially asked for help from Armenia and Diaspora-based benefactors in taking Aleppo-Armenians out of war-torn Syria.

According to the organization, 600 hundred letters from families in Aleppo have already been received, asking for help to reach Armenia.

Given security concerns, those people will first be moved to Lebanon by land to later be transferred to Armenia by air.

In a statement Thursday, October 6, the NGO called on the philanthropists to help those displaced reach Armenia from Lebanon.

According to the organization, each of the Armenians needs $500 for the trip.

Aleppo, including the Armenian districts there, have repeatedly fallen under missile and rocket attacks over the past five years. Dozens of Armenians have been killed, hundreds more wounded so far.
