Dr. Sarafian thanked the Board for its warm welcome. He presented the history of the SDHP from its establishment to its social activism to its current work and presence in multiple countries on six continents. He explained that the party is encouraged that the ideals of its founders are now being independently pursued by activist Turks in Turkey. He spoke of the challenges the party faces in the political sphere of Armenia today as well as in the Diaspora and the opportunities it shares with other political parties in assisting Armenians in the Middle East, especially Syria, in helping the development of Armenia and Artsakh, gaining recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and in strengthening the connection between the Diaspora and the homeland, particularly for Armenian youth.

Dr. Sarafian expressed appreciation and support of Ararat Home’s long-standing mission and work in preserving Armenian culture and heritage and caring for Armenian elderly. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Mr. Kanimian presented Dr. Sarafian several Ararat Home memorabilia and thanked the SDHP for its support and media coverage of the Home’s activities.
