French humanitarian aid to Armenia to provide education for 4  thousand Armenian children

ArmInfo. From the first days France mobilized efforts to provide assistance to Armenia. This was stated on November 28 during a briefing in Yerevan by director of  the crisis center of the French Foreign Ministry Eric Chevalier, who  arrived in Yerevan as part of the French delegation, which brought  the second plane of French humanitarian aid to Armenia.

He recalled that France sent a group of French doctors to Armenia a  few weeks ago, as well as medical supplies. "In addition, a week  earlier, a humanitarian aircraft arrived in Yerevan, which delivered  ambulance equipment, in particular a mobile first aid station, which  will allow serving up to 500 people, as well as blankets and hygiene  kits for distribution of those affected by the conflict. Part of the  brought medical aid has already been transferred to the Erebuni  Medical Center, and we are planning to give the other part to the  Burn Center today. Part of the humanitarian aid we brought was  collected by the Aznavour Foundation Part of the humanitarian aid we  brought was collected by the Aznavour Foundation. We are impressed  that the Fund was able to collect such aid in such a short time.  Arrival of new planes with humanitarian supplies is expected. We also  plan to establish interaction between Yerevan medical institutions  and hospitals in Paris, Lyon and Marseille, "Chevalier said.  In  turn, the famous footballer Youri Djorkaeff, who was appointed by the  President of France as a Goodwill Ambassador to the Republic of  Armenia, expressed his words of support and condolences to the  families and friends of those killed as a result of the hostilities  in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

"The Armenian community of France is by your side. Today is an  important day for us and it is very important that we were able to  collect so much help, which is evidence of our strength and unity.  This help also demonstrates the friendship between Armenia and  France. We will always be by your side,"  said the famous football  player.

In turn, UNICEF representative in Armenia Marianne Clark-Hattingh  said that she visited the citizens affected by the conflict.  According to her, the conflict has forced many children to leave  their homes, and they are now deprived of the opportunity to receive  education. "This assistance is very important for us. It will help in  providing education for 4,000 children. From the very beginning of  the conflict, UNICEF and other UN bodies were involved in the process  of providing assistance to internally displaced persons," said a  UNICEF spokeswoman.

To note, the second plane of humanitarian aid from France in the  volume of 25 tons arrived in Yerevan yesterday. It was collected with  the consolidation of state funds, donations collected by solidarity  associations cooperating with Armenia, as well as the Aznavour  Foundation. The work is coordinated by a committee within the Crisis  Support Center of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Europe.
