Converse Bank's employees have taken part in the charity fundraising organized by the Jinishian Memorial Foundation to support the Armenians of Kessab. The press service of the Bank has told ArmInfo that an account has been opened at Converse Bank and the funds will be transferred to the Jinishian Memorial Foundation.
The source says that on Converse Bank's initiative, two families from Latakia will be provided with leased housing and food for 2 months. If the situation in Syria does not improve over the specified period of time, the Bank will consider extending the project of support to the Armenian families of Syria.
"Converse Bank feels it its duty to support not only the compatriots who have found shelter in Latakia but also all those who prefer returning to the historical Motherland. The Bank gives high priority to this charity campaign and welcomes all steps taken by the Jinishian Memorial Foundation. In the current difficult situation in the country the Syrian Armenians should feel Armenia's support", says Tigran Davtyan, CEO at Converse Bank.
In the meantime, Converse Bank has worked out a special package of banking products for the Syrian Armenians. "These products will be provided on favorable terms, which will give an opportunity to our compatriots from Syria to easily pass the first stage of settlement in Armenia", Davtyan says.
To recall, the Jinishian Memorial Foundation has a representative office in Syria and can promptly take all measures to accept donations.
