The board of Armenofas meets in Antelias

20 April 2013

Upon the invitation of His Holiness Aram I the Board of the Swiss Armenian Foundation met at the Catholicosate of Cilicia in Antelias.


The Fund was established by the Swiss Friends of the Armenians during the Genocide to assist the survivors. After several years the Foundation was reorganized and its ownership was transferred to the Catholicosate of Cilicia with a strong link to the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (FEPS). The Board members of the Foundation include representatives of the Catholicosate of Cilicia and FEPS. The representatives of the Catholicosate include Mrs. Teny Pirri-Simonian President (Switzerland), Bishop Khoren Toghramajian (Greece) Mr. Dikran Jimbashian (Lebanon), Mrs. Hazgouhi Yaghjian (Greece), Mr. Alexan Keucheyan (Switzerland). Attorney François Payot and Rev. Ruedolf Renfer represent FEPS.
