AGBU Germany President Georgi Ambarzumjan and Vice-President Ohanes (Hovig) Altunkaya were invited to the Berlin Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Germany to discuss Armenia-diaspora relations and how to use diaspora resources more effectively.
Berlin – May 25, 2021
The subject of the meeting was the cooperation in the field of humanitarian aid for Armenia, especially for the internally displaced persons and war-disabled and what can be done from Germany. The Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia was handed over issues of the current AGBU magazine.
Armenian Ambassador Ashot Smbatyan reiterated his sympathy for the establishment of the first German chapter of AGBU and offered his support in upcoming projects: “AGBU is one of the most important Armenian organizations worldwide. The establishment of a German chapter with two experienced members of the German-Armenian community is an encouraging sign from New York.”
Headquartered in Berlin, AGBU Germany is the first German Chapter of the New York-based Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), the world’s largest non-profit organization devoted to upholding the Armenian heritage through educational, cultural, and humanitarian programs across the globe. AGBU has an active presence in 32 countries and 75 cities.
AGBU Germany was founded in 2020 in the awareness of its responsibility towards the Armenians in Germany, Armenia, Artsakh, and the Diaspora. Inspired by the unwavering determination of its mother organization AGBU founded in 1906, and in appreciation and recognition of its continuous achievements, the Chapter fits as a German link into the ranks of international AGBU Chapters as well as into the global Armenian nation.
