Forcibly Displaced Armenians from Artsakh Welcome 54 Newborns in Yerevan

Forcibly Displaced Armenians from Artsakh Welcome 54 Newborns in Yerevan

Amidst the ongoing crisis and mass exodus of Armenians from their indigenous lands in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), a ray of hope emerged as 54 babies were welcomed into the world in Yerevan. The families of these newborns, forcibly displaced from Artsakh, celebrated the births during a meeting held at the Yerevan city hall on Monday.

The heartening news of these births signifies a glimmer of resilience amidst the turmoil faced by the Armenian population forcibly fleeing their ancestral lands due to the ethnic cleansing that unfolded in September 2023.

The Yerevan city hall confirmed that in the preceding week, a total of 54 babies were born to families who were displaced from Artsakh. Among these newborns, there were 29 boys and 25 girls, symbolizing new beginnings amidst adversity.

The mass exodus of Armenians from Artsakh was a result of the distressing events of September 2023, when widespread reports and evidence surfaced of ethnic cleansing targeting the Armenian population in the region. The forced displacement led many families to seek refuge in various parts of Armenia, including the capital city of Yerevan.

The arrival of these newborns amidst such challenging circumstances serves as a reminder of the resilience and hope prevailing within the displaced Armenian community. Despite the hardships and uncertainties they face in their new circumstances, the families welcomed the births with immense joy and hope for the future.

As the displaced families strive to rebuild their lives in Yerevan and other areas of Armenia, the births of these 54 babies stand as a testament to the endurance and determination of a community seeking solace and stability amidst unprecedented upheaval and displacement.
