Responding to the call of the RA Ministry of Diaspora (“Give a Happy New Year”), the Federation of Youth Clubs of Armenia (FYCA), which is Armenia’s largest youth organization, held the “Hand-to-Hand for Darbnik” charity initiative through which the needy, refugee and repatriate families (Iraqi-Armenian and Syrian-Armenian families) living in the Darbnik village of Ararat Province were provided with assistance on December 22. By joining the call of the RA Ministry of Diaspora, World Armenian Youth Network (WostAYN) supported the initiative of FYCA and provided clothes, writing utensils and other accessories to the families.
Darbnik is a small village with a population of 1,200, of which 90% are Syrian-Armenian, Iraqi-Armenian and Azerbaijani-Armenian families having taken shelter in Armenia. After facing the difficulties and living in danger, these people have finally settled in the Homeland. They live in unfavorable conditions, lack the necessary conditions and face a problem with transportation. In addition, the refugee families of Darbnik also have a problem with integration into social and civic life.
Taking all this into consideration, WostAYN joined the initiative to mitigate the worries of the refugee families ahead of the New Year and make the needy, refugee and repatriate families of Darbnik village a little bit happier.
