Armenian community in Syria formed after the 1915 Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire. The community of 100,000 Armenians played until recently a significant role in the social, political and cultural life in Syria. Traditionally the Armenian community in Syria is considered to be the strongest Diaspora. Majority of Armenians live in Aleppo (over 60,000), Damascus, and some other cities.

The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund was founded by Presidential Decree in 1992.

It is a unique institution whose mission is to unite Armenians in Armenia and overseas to overcome the country’s difficulties and to help establish sustainable development in Armenia and Artsakh. In addition to those problems associated with the break-up of the Soviet Union, the government had to find solutions to the aftermath of the 1988 Spitak earthquake, an economic blockade and the rehabilitation of areas that had suffered from the Artsakh conflict.—0--
