The Armenian community of Moscow will provide assistance to its
compatriots in Syria, as a benefit concert to assist the Syrian
Armenians will be held in the Russian capital on December 2.

The feature of this concert is the fact that Karnig Sarkissian, the
legendary performer of Armenian patriotic songs - and who is born in
Aleppo, Syria - , will take stage in Moscow for the first time.

Sarkissian's concert is organized by the Armenian youth group, with
support by the Russian-Armenian Cooperation and the Hamshen
Association.

The proceeds from the concert will be forwarded to the `Help Your
Brother' civic initiative, which provides assistance to the
Syrian-Armenian community, and by way of the Syrian Armenian Relief
Fund.
