Fund for supporting Armenian writers in difficult conditions

Azad-Hye has started an initiative for supporting Armenian language writers in difficult conditions. The campaign was triggered as a response to the courage demonstrated by several Armenian writers in Syria, who despite the difficult situation in their country, have shown resilience and determination through covering daily life and sending reports from the war stricken country.

The most difficult periods are during internet blackouts, such as the one that happened recently and lasted for more than one month.

Noushik Mikayelian: Art cleanses the soul

Recently, an art Gallery named Gala opened in Yerevan, with the initiative of Mr. and Mrs. composer Avetis Berberyan and writer Noushik Mikayelian.

In such a short period of time, the gallery was able to grab the attention of many art lovers.

...

We had the following interview with co-founder Noushik Mikayelian

- Tell us Mrs. Mikayelian, when was Gala Art Gallery open for the public?

The official opening was held on the 13th of October 2012. Since the first day, the gallery has displayed art works that belong to artists of different generations. There were classic works by Kochar, Saryan, Minas, Hakob Hakobyan... as well as many works by famous, young, contemporary artists, who - by the way- have appealed to many collectors in two months' time.
Gala Art Gallery tries to create a nice place for them, where they can display their art to the art lovers in Armenia and in different cultural centers around the globe.

In a city deprived of the basic requirements of a normal life (bread, electricity, fuel, gas, communication means, security and human rights), could New Year celebrations or the birth of Jesus Christ carry any meaning?

Aleppo Armenians and the population of Aleppo in general bid farewell to 2012, leaving behind a year marked with blood, wounds and ruins, without having the least indication that the New Year would alleviate their pain and would bring substantial change to thei...r beloved country.

Until this moment there is no glimpse of hope.

Stepan and Narek have jointly established "Legal-Lab" law office. They assist people, especially Armenians who come from other countries. In recent times, due to the political developments, Syrian Armenians have been frequenting the office.

Azad-Hye reporter in Armenia Meri Martirosyan discussed with co-founders Stepan Khzrtyan and Narek Ashughatoyan on the above topic.

- Stepan, after knowing about the events in Syria, what thoughts occurred to you and what were your feeling...s?

There is a large Armenian community in Syria. It was very painful to see that the community is under threat and many people are forced to leave their homes.

FUND FOR ASSISTANCE TO SYRIAN-ARMENIAN SCHOOLS

In order to provide financial assistance to Armenian schools in Syria, the ARS Central Executive Board announced the formation of the “Fund for Assistance to Syrian-Armenian Schools”.

...

“There is no doubt,” declared ARS Central Executive Board Member, Ms. Zepure E. Reisian, “that the unfortunate incidents unraveling in Syria have disrupted the community’s normal course of life. The ARS Central Executive Board believes that securing the undisturbed continuity of school life is the best guarantee of maintaining the normalcy of daily existence for Armenian youngsters.”

As further explanation of the nature of the Fund, Mrs. Vicky Marashlian, Chairperson of the ARS Central Executive Board, noted that a while back the Society recognized that, as a consequence of the events in Syria, the Armenian Community may suffer social and financial instability.

After deliberation, the Central Executive Board concluded that the best approach for the ARS would be to concentrate on helping the Syrian-Armenian schools by allotting funds for “tuitions to needy students”, thus alleviating both the financial burden on needy Syrian-Armenian families, and, at the same time, promoting the continuity of the educational mission of the schools.

“The decision of the Central Executive Board to come up with such a Fund is indeed laudable,” stated Ms. Anna Der Hagopian, Chairperson of ARS/Syria. “The economic crisis battering the country has inevitably affected the Armenian community as well, and the number of families and scholarship recipients receiving aid from the ARS/Syria social services has doubled over the past year. We are confident that until next September, the ARS family will make every possible effort to assist to the maximum the Syrian-Armenian educational institutions, thus helping the community itself. We have no doubt, also, that Armenian communities worldwide, alongside the global ARS entities, will come to our assistance in other needs as they arise until we finally come out of this crisis,” concluded Ms. Der Hagopian.

Donations may be made to the “Fund for Assistance to Syrian-Armenian Schools” through all ARS local chapters and Regional offices, as well as on the ARS, Inc. website (http://www.ars1910.org).

All proceeds will be sent to the ARS/Syria Regional Executive for distribution to Syrian/Armenian schools, in order to alleviate the financial burden on the shoulders of the Syrian-Armenian parents.
