Ամենայն հայոց որբերի հայրիկ Թումանյանը

Փետրվարի 19-ին Հովհաննես Թումանյանի ծննդյան օրն է եւ Ամենայն հայոց բանաստեղծի 150-ամյակը՝ ՅՈՒՆԵՍԿՕ-ի մակարդակով: Թումանյանն այն եզակի գործիչներից է, ում գրական հարստությունը նույնքան անժխտելիորեն բացառիկ է ու մեծ, որքան նրա մարդկային կերպարը:

A sweet story from Cork

When one of our kind clients gave us a beautiful bright yellow box of Turkish Delight and the paper inside the box said ‘Armenian Delight’, we got curious. Here is the story of confectionery maker, reproduced with THE LOWER GLANMIRE ROAD, CORK CITY, IRELAND blog’s kind permission

Taniel: a new arthouse film about Varoujan

Garo Berberian is an award-winning filmmaker and a CAIA member, whose arthouse short film Taniel, narrated by Sean Bean, is currently having a successful run in the festival circuit

Our charity is working hard to respond to the changing situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) related issues. We do our best to continue to provide our services for our members and the Armenian community at large and ask for your patience during this challenging time.

Our staff and volunteers are working hard to continue supporting you in the best way that we can, whilst also staying on top of reducing risk of spreading infection and supporting our colleague who may be more at risk.

However, due to the current situation and in the best interest of all of us, we had to make some changes to our normal services. Starting from Monday 16 March 2020, all our services including the face-to-face advice work, the Parents & Toddlers Group, the English classes, Library, the elders lunch club and the youth club are suspended until further notice.

We ask that anyone experiencing Coronavirus symptoms or having to self-isolate due to being exposed to someone with coronavirus, does not attend Hayashen until further notice and call NHS 111 for advice.

However, as we wish to support you as best as we can, our advice work continues by telephone, email and online. You may contact us on 020 89924621 or use our website (www.caia.org.uk) to leave an enquiry or email us on info@caia.org.uk

Please let us know what other forms of communication are available to you, such as Whatsapp, Viber, Messenger etc.
