Pour toi Arménie: Aznavour reminds the world about the devastating 1988 earthquake in Armenia

Charles Aznavour has reminded the world about the 1988 devastating earthquake.

“On 7 December 1988, a terrible earthquake struck Armenia, leaving tens of thousands dead and hundreds of thousands homeless,” Aznavour wrote in a Facebook post.

In the aftermath of the earthquake the world known French Armenian singer created the “Aznavour pour l’Arménie” Association, which carried out humanitarian projects.

After the earthquake a panel of 80 French artists recorded song “Pour toi Arménie” (For you, Armenia) to support Armenians and many generous donors also contributed to this effort of solidarity.
