On July 29, 2017, after the summer vacations, the Syrian children got together again at the Center for Syrian children and youth of the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable NGO.
This time, the meeting was dedicated to the historical significance of the Khor Virap monastic complex, as well as the history of the Garni pagan temple and the secrets of this symbolic monument’s survival through centuries.
The children learned about the activities of some of the most noble heroes in Armenian history – King Tiridates III, Queen Ashkhen and Gregory the Illuminator, and their invaluable contribution to the sacred cause of strengthening Christianity in Armenia.
The participants of the Center for Syrian children and youth also learned several interesting stories about the mythological giants – Cyclops. At the end of the meeting, using their imagination, the children drew pictures representing the main topic of the day.
